Learn why laser hair removal at Ethos Spa may be a solution to your problems.
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses laser energy to target and destroy the hair follicles, resulting in permanent hair reduction.
The laser emits light pulses which are absorbed by the pigment in the hairs, damaging them and preventing future growth. This treatment can be used on any area of the body where unwanted hair exists.
During a laser hair removal session, a handheld device is used to deliver concentrated beams of light into individual strands of unwanted hair.
The light passes through the skin and is absorbed by melanin (the pigment that gives color to our skin) in each strand of unwanted hair.
This causes heat which damages or destroys the follicle so that it cannot produce new hairs. It usually takes several treatments over time for optimal results. That's because not all hairs will be affected at once due to their different stages of growth cycles.
Compared to traditional methods of hair removal such as waxing or shaving, laser hair removal offers much more benefits:
One of the main benefits of this treatment is that it provides long-lasting results. Depending on the treatment area, most people can expect to see a permanent reduction in unwanted hair after just three to five treatments.This means you won't have to worry about waxing or shaving as often and can enjoy smooth skin for months at a time without any extra effort.
Laser hair removal is an incredibly precise treatment option because it targets individual hairs with pinpoint accuracy while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed.
The lasers used by Ethos Spa, Skin and Laser Center are designed to target dark pigment in the follicles so they only affect unwanted hairs while leaving your skin looking healthy and natural afterwards.
Another great benefit of laser hair removal is that each session usually takes less than 30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area, making it much faster than other methods like waxing or threading
Laser hair removal is also known for causing minimal discomfort compared to waxing or tweezing. These can be quite painful due to pulling out individual hairs from their roots one by one.
At Ethos Spa, Skin and Laser Center in Sparta Township, NJ, our team will work closely with you.
From initial consultation through post-treatment follow up visits - we will ensure optimal safety and comfort during every step of your smooth skin journey.
We use a handheld device to deliver pulses of laser energy directly into your skin during the treatment.
This laser energy targets the pigment in your hair follicles and destroys them without damaging the surrounding skin tissue. After several treatments, you can expect permanent reduction in unwanted body hair.
It is important to follow proper pre and post care instructions for optimal results.
Before each session it is essential that you avoid:
It’s important to avoid direct sun exposure for at least two weeks before your laser hair removal treatment.
The UV rays from the sun can make the skin more sensitive and increase the risk of side effects, such as blistering or burning.
If you must be in direct sunlight, wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
Avoid waxing and plucking hairs for at least a month before a removal session as this can interfere with the effectiveness of the procedure.
Laser treatments target individual hairs that are in their growth phase, so removing them beforehand will prevent them from being targeted by the laser light during treatment.
It’s best to shave instead since it does not remove any follicles or roots from beneath the surface of your skin like waxing does.

Tanning beds should also be avoided for at least two weeks before a laser hair removal appointment due to similar reasons as avoiding sun exposure.
Tanning beds emit UV radiation which can make your skin more sensitive and vulnerable to potential side effects after the procedure.
Certain medications and supplements can also affect how well lasers work on certain individuals’ bodies during treatments. It's important that you consult with Katelyn about any medication or supplement intake prior to undergoing a laser hair removal session at Ethos Spa.
Avoid shaving immediately before going to scheduled laser hair treatment. Hair needs to be visible enough to lasers during treatments.
Avoid alcohol 48 hours before treatment because it dehydrates your skin and makes procedure more complicated.
Immediately after each session it is recommended to:
