Before & After
What Is the Lumenis Stellar M22 Laser Excel HR System?
Lumenis is one of the most reputed developers of laser hair removal technology. The Lumenis M22 system uses the state-of-the-art dual-wavelength technology to provide a safe hair removal solution. Multiple-Sequential Pulsing allows for cooling the skin in between pulses, while 3 SapphireCool™ lightguides ensure patient comfort through continuous contact cooling. The entire procedure is completely non-invasive and extremely effective! You will be getting top-of-the-line laser hair removal in Napa.
Preparing for the Treatment
The Lumenis Stellar M22 procedure starts with a consultation, where our med spa professionals will assess your hair removal needs. We also evaluate your skin type and hair type, as it will help us customize our treatments. We spend time getting to know you and understanding your cosmetic or medical needs. Our priority is to ensure your satisfaction and comfort during and after the treatment.
Once we identify the extensiveness of the treatment required, we schedule the treatment. You are asked to stop all plucking, waxing and tweezing treatments that you normally undergo for a few weeks before the treatment. This is to ensure that the hair follicle is present at the time of the treatment. You should, however, wet shave a few hours before the treatment using skin-friendly shaving gel.
You are also advised to stop tanning or sunbathing a few weeks before the treatment, as an increase in melanin can impact the quality of the hair removal results. Before and throughout the treatment you must use sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher on the treatment area. Treatment cannot be performed without proper sunscreen application! It is our mission to give you the best results from laser hair removal Napa can offer.
On the day of the treatment, the area will be cleaned using skin-safe materials. Your eyes are covered with special glasses, which protect them from the laser light.
Next, the Lumenis Stellar M22 laser will be gently moved across the treatment area. The sapphire contact cooling technology delivers a cool wave to your skin, pre-cooling it. Next, the hot laser waves are delivered to the treatment area. The heat from the laser enters the hair follicles and burns them. Soon, the hair follicle dries up and disintegrates completely. Any hair growing out of that follicle will fall off. Since the Lumenis Stellar M22 treatment is used to destroy the hair follicle .i.e. the root of the hair, you won’t experience any hair growth from the treated area for years. In fact, some patients have confirmed permanent hair removal after the Lumenis Stellar M22 treatment.
Once the hot wave has been directed towards the treatment area, another cooling wave is delivered to your skin. This immediately cools the heated area. This constant cycle of cooling and heating ensures that your skin is safe and isn’t vulnerable to burns or irritation. You won’t even need to ice the area post-treatment.
The most popular areas for hair removal for men are above the beard, ears, neck, hands, chest, and back. The most popular for women are the face, upper lip, chin, neck, abdomen, bikini/Brazilian, underarms, legs, and toes. Our technicians will customize the heat and intensity of the laser treatment, depending on your skin type, sensitivity and the nature of your hair. After the session, you’ll be left with smooth and hair-free skin.
Immediately after the treatment, you may see minor swelling, bruising or tenderness of the skin. This is completely normal and these symptoms will disappear after a few hours. At first, you’ll see that certain portions of the treated area are completely hair-free. Over the next 2 to 3 weeks, you’ll be able to see better results.
It is recommended that you undergo a total of 6 to 8 treatments* to benefit the most and get comprehensive results.
Significant reduction/removal takes multiple treatments completed over several months. The sooner you start; the sooner you’ll see results!
