Laser Hair Removal is a noninvasive treatment that safely removes unwanted hair without damaging the skin.

At Ageless Beauty in Mountain Home, ID, we use the Sciton Laser for Laser Hair Removal that is safe on most skin types and skin colors. This system uses laser light – an intense, pulsating beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where the energy is absorbed and transformed into heat, disabling the follicle while leaving the surrounding area unaffected.

Laser Hair Removal offers longer-lasting results then other hair removal methods such as shaving, tweezing or electrolysis.

Laser Hair Removal is recommended in packages of five or more in order to disable all of the active hair follicles.

Laser hair removal remains the #1 cosmetic laser treatment performed in the United States. Underarms, facial hair, bikini, legs, back and other body part areas are easily eliminated using the latest in IPL laser hair reduction technologies. For permanent hair removal, the hair follicle’s bulb, bulge, and papilla must be destroyed using joules of light energy. IPL laser hair removal requires a target (melanin) to see the actual hair within the follicle so it is not as effective with blonde and white (gray) hair individuals. The number of treatments vary based upon the hair growth cycles of various body locations and is safe and comfortable to the patient.

The reason for multiple treatments is due to the target of the laser hair treatment being melanin, only actively growing hair contains melanin in the bulb and germinal matrix of the hair. The growth cycles for hair are Anagen (active growth), Telogen (no growth), and Catagen (hair is ejected) stage of development. Lasers only effectively treat hair in its Anagen Phase: thus multiple treatments are required.

Body location of hair also is important in the number of laser treatments needed as the percentage of hair that is in the Anagen stage is different for various body locations:

Is Ageless Beauty’s Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Laser Hair Removal can permanently disable the hair you have in an active growth cycle on the day of your treatment. Follicles that are not active will enter the growth phase in a few weeks and will then be treatable. Most active hair follicles must be treated more than once. Circumstances such as pregnancy, menopause, certain medications and hormonal conditions can trigger a dormant follicle to grow in. Dormant follicles are not active and therefore not able to be treated. The new growth, however, will be much lighter in color and considerably finer in texture because of the procedure. If this should happen, a touch-up treatment would be required.

Where can Laser Hair Removal be used?
Anywhere on the skin’s surface.

Can tanned skin be treated?
Tanned skin can be unsafe to treat so always inform us if you have been tanning or exposed to the sun within the last three weeks. We will adjust your treatment settings or alter your treatment regime accordingly to give you the safest most effective experience.

How long does the treatment take?
A treatment normally takes between 15 and 45 minutes, although time varies depending upon the area being treated.

How soon will I see results?
The hair that was treated will begin to work its way out of the follicle and will start to fall out between 10-14 days after the treatment.
