Hair Removal Q&A
What are the different types of temporary hair removal?
ANU Medspa offers many treatments for both temporary and permanent hair removal, including:
Dermaplaning is a safe, noninvasive treatment that uses a scalpel to gently remove unwanted hair and dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin. It’s especially effective at removing vellus hair, or peach fuzz, which often causes a build-up of dirt and oils in your skin. It’s used most often on patients with dry skin, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and acne scarring.
Many women choose dermaplaning while pregnant, as this exfoliating treatment doesn’t use any chemicals or peeling agents to restore your natural glow.
The team uses two different types of wax: strip wax and hard wax. They apply strip wax in a very thin layer before removing it with a cloth. Strip wax is precise, so it’s best for areas where you want to see definition, like the eyebrows.
Hard wax, or stripless wax, typically treats sensitive areas, like the bikini line, brow, lip, and underarms. The team applies it in a thick layer for maximum comfort.
ANU Medspa also uses Nufree©, the only antimicrobial, anhydrous, non-wax hair removal system that doesn’t stick to your skin, eliminating any pain or discomfort.
Sugaring is a safe, gentle hair removal treatment that uses a sugar paste without chemicals or additives to remove unwanted hair. Many people find sugaring to be less painful than other hair removal methods. As you return for maintenance treatments, your hair should look finer and softer when it grows back.
What are permanent hair removal treatments?
At ANU Medspa, the team performs laser hair removal treatments to permanently reduce unwanted hair. They use the Alma™ Soprano XL laser, which was developed specifically for laser hair removal.
The Alma Soprano XL can remove hair of all colors, including white, gray, brown, red, and blonde. It’s also safe and effective for all skin colors, even tanned and dark skin. It can treat nearly any area of your body, such as your face, abdomen (abs), chest, upper lip, legs, arms, back, and bikini area.
How does laser hair removal work?
The Alma Soprano XL effectively removes unwanted hair by targeting your hair follicles. When the laser beams into your unwanted hair, the melanin (pigment) in the follicle absorbs the light. Then, the light energy converts to heat, permanently damaging the hair follicle.
Most people need about 5-8 laser hair removal treatments to achieve the results they want. These treatments are spaced 6-8 weeks apart for your comfort and safety.
