Laser Hair Removal
 How does Laser Hair Removal work?



Laser Hair Removal is a faster, gentler way to remove unwanted hair, with great results. It
applies precisely controlled pulses of energy (electrical and light, with cooling), reaching into the
hair follicles that lie beneath the skin. The energy heats the hair, right down to the bottom of the
root, destroying it without damaging surrounding tissue or skin.

 What does it feel like?



Each pulse, which lasts less than a second, produces a slight tingling feeling. In particularly
sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel like a quick, light pinch.

 Is it suitable for everyone?



At Metropolitan Laser Institute we customize the treatment to exactly match your hair and skin
color and type. As long as there is some color in your hair, then our system will be effective.

 What about side effects?



The energies used by Metropolitan Laser Institute (electrical and light) are both commonly used
in a range of medical and cosmetic procedures that have proven to be safe. Most people
experience no side effects at all, though few exhibit some short-term local reddening of the
surrounding skin. You can return to your regular activities immediately after treatment, although
it is advisable to keep the skin protected from exposure to direct sunlight for a short period of
time.

 How many treatments will I need?



Our technology destroys hairs that are in the active growth phase, so repeat treatments will be
needed to target hair that was not affected at the time of previous treatments. Normally six
treatments are recommended to get the optimum results.

 What results can I expect?



At the end of the treatment program you can expect your skin to remain smooth.

Treatments utilizing Skin Rejuvenation technology can be used on any part of the skin. They are
especially effective for improving the appearance of the face, neck and chest.

 What results can I expect?



You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries.
People with visible aging from the sun can expect to see their skin become smoother, with a
decrease in fine wrinkles, reduction in pore size and fading of sunspots. Many people with
rosacea see an improvement in breakouts and are able to decrease or discontinue their
medications.

 What is a Skin Rejuvenation treatment like?



Each treatment takes approximately 20 to 40 minutes. A mild amount of discomfort can be
expected. Immediately following a treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed, and tiny
capillaries may appear more visible. Brown spots generally appear darker. All of these changes
gradually fade over a period of time.

 How soon will I see results?



After your first treatment, your skin will feel smoother and will have a more even tone. These
improvements are gradual and will be more visible after each treatment. Six treatments are
performed for optimal results. Some patients will benefit from additional treatments.

 Who are the best candidates for Skin Rejuvenation treatments?



The best candidates for Skin Rejuvenation treatments are:
• People who suffer from rosacea and experience flushing and redness of their skin.
• People with early aging changes and sun damage, who desire healthier more
youthful-appearing skin.
• People who don’t want to take time off to heal from laser resurfacing or chemical peels.
• Active people who don't want the treatments to interfere with social or outdoor activities.
