If you’re tired of keeping up with waxing appointments, shaving, or depilatories, laser hair reduction is for you. The advanced Sciton laser hair reduction system used at Cascade Medspa & Laser Centre in Baxter, Minnesota, dramatically reduces unwanted hair for good in a series of comfortable sessions. Call today to set up your appointment, or use the online tool to book.
Cascade Medspa & Laser Centre uses the Forever Bare BBL™ system to treat hair follicles that produce unwanted hair. The laser applies fluid pulses of energy that penetrate your outer layer of skin to target the hair follicles that sit below.
When the follicles heat up, they’re destroyed and unable to produce hair.
Just about anywhere you have unwanted hair is eligible for laser hair reduction. These include:
Forever Bare BBL is safe and effective for most skin types.
Laser hair reduction is effective when hair is in a growth stage. Because not all hair is in this stage simultaneously, you’ll need several sessions for complete results. The providers recommend a series of 6-10 sessions scheduled about 4-6 weeks apart.
Before your appointment, you can shave, but avoid plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for a few weeks prior to your appointment. You want the hair root intact. You also benefit from staying out of the sun for a few weeks before your appointment.
When you arrive for your appointment, your provider cleanses the treatment area and applies Ultrasound gel (a light numbing cream that can be washed off). You wear special glasses to protect your eyes from the laser as you relax on a treatment table.
During treatment, your provider glides a handheld device over the treatment area. You might feel warmth and a sensation as if a rubber band is repeatedly snapping against your skin.
Your procedure may last just minutes for small areas like your upper lip or longer for larger areas of your body.
Immediately after your appointment, you may have slight redness and swelling in treated areas, but this resolves in a few hours. Do stay out of the sun for a few weeks as your skin is extra sensitive following laser hair reduction treatment.
