Electrolysis is the permanent answer to unwanted hair no matter your gender, your post-puberty age or your ethnicity, and today it is still the only form of permanent hair removal recognized by the American Medical Association. We use only the most advanced technology for efficacy and for your comfort.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal works by emitting pulses of laser energy or intense light into the hair follicles. The energy or light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. Your hair's color absorbs the heat from the laser and that heat works to destroy hair follicles that produce hair. So, you see, we are not actually removing hair, we are permanently reducing the number of follicles that are able to make hair. As a result, the process is really called laser hair reduction.
Our Elite Laser combines two proven wavelengths, 755nm Alexandrite and 1064nm Nd:YAG. The 755nm wavelength has high melanin absorption characteristics and proven long-term results for permanent hair reduction. The high-powered 1064nm Nd:YAG is the safest wavelength for permanent hair reduction on darker skin types and tanned skin.
Our Palomar IPL system safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate structures of the skin. The technology delivers specific wavelengths, with large spot sizes, Contact CoolingTM and Smooth PulseTM technology to provide comfortable treatments with excellent results for clients of all skin types. It has the clinical efficacy to rival, even surpass, other laser technology.
For the protection of our clients and staff, L’Essentiel adheres to the strict sterilization guidelines recommended by the Center for Disease Control. We use only disposable instruments and dry-heat sterilization of all equipment. Gloves are worn at all times.
