WHAT TYPES OF LASERS DO YOU USE?
At High Style Laser we use the latest technology from Cynosure, a leading developer and manufacturer of a broad array of light-based aesthetic and medical treatment systems. High Style Laser & Spa utilizes the Cynosure Apogee Elite system which offers dual-wavelength functionality in a single stand-alone product. The Apogee Elite combines two optimal wavelengths in one system: the 755-nm Alexandrite laser and the 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser.
- The 755-nm wavelength With high melanin absorption characteristics and proven long-term results for permanent hair reduction and pigmented lesion removal on fairer skin tones.
- 1064-nm Nd:YAG Optimal for darker skin tones this is the safest wavelength for permanent hair reduction on darker skin types and tanned skin. It is also the wavelength of choice for treatment of facial and leg veins—the most common form of vascular lesions.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?
Yes, it is. The hair that is killed during a laser hair removal session is dead and will never grow back and nowadays new technology is capable of giving over 80-90% or better reduction for all skin types, male and female, for all parts of the body, except around the eyes. However don't forget that you have a lot more hair on your body than you probably imagine (hair grows in cycles so you actually never get to see all your hair at any given time) and it takes multiple sessions to kill 80-90% of this total hair. Another thing to keep in mind is that your body, as long as you are well and alive, will produce new hair. None of us had hair as babies or children but our bodies grew and shed hair over our lifetimes. This process will continue despite laser hair removal and the growth of new hair is actually why you need clean up sessions once or twice a year.

HOW DOES A LASER FACIAL SKIN TREATMENT WORK?
It works by directing a bean of light to an irregularity in the skin. Such as an enlarged blood vessel or irregular chromophore. This removes the abnormality without scarring or damage while stimulating collagen production to tighten the surrounding tissue, resulting in improved skin texture and reduced signs of aging.
HOW DOES A LASER FACIAL TREATMENT DIFFER FROM CHEMICAL PEELS AND DERMABRASION
Unlike other treatments that remove an outer layer of skin and require significant healing time, laser treatment works by gently penetrating the skin to destroy the underlying vessels and pigment that are the cause of the problem. The outer skin itself is not damaged.
