When it comes to laser hair removal in Urbana, we provide the best results by specializing in the most advanced treatments. At Alazzo, we trust two different lasers to treat most skin types and comfort levels. The fantastic technology behind our favorite treatments is what keeps our customers coming back. So whether it’s your first time visiting or right before your next check-up, get to know the lasers that our patients and providers love.
First Things First
There are a few things you should know before we start your journey to smoother skin. We cover the basics for every patient at Alazzo. So we start with an easy conversation. In your consultation, we’ll answer any questions and take a deep dive into your skin’s overall health.
To build your custom treatment, we’ll get to know all about you. We’ll ask about your lifestyle, your career, and your goals. You’ll also get a full analysis of your skin from our experts. As we learn all about you and your skin, we’ll customize your plan for laser hair removal in Urbana. We ask a lot of questions, but we also answer a few as well! Here are a few basics we talk about as we plan for most hair removals.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal has been around for decades. In the early days, it was painful, temporary, and expensive. Now, we’ve made it easy, semi-permanent, and, most importantly, painless. The treatments we trust utilize different wavelengths to target and neutralize hair follicles at specific stages during the growth cycle.
Why not wax?
We can’t knock a good old-fashioned wax. However, waxing can be painful, it’s temporary, and it requires consistent appointments to maintain the results. Instead of yanking hair out like the old days, many people seek a semi-permanent, painless solution.
Our laser hair removal in Urbana makes lasting, sexy results possible by systematically removing hair throughout the growth cycle. While hair grows back with waxing, it doesn’t with our highly specialized laser treatments.
Who can benefit from laser hair removal?
Our laser hair treatments are a great option for all skin types. However, we cannot use lasers on anyone who has been on antibiotics or steroids for 10 days prior to treatment. You will need to avoid sun exposure or spray tans before your treatment as well. Laser hair removal is for pigmented hair, so if you have naturally blonde or gray hair, let our specialists know. That way, we can specially tailor your treatment plan to account for your specific melanin levels.
Our first option for laser hair removal uses the Soprano system. This highly advanced machine uses the most effective wavelength to keep your treatment simple and straightforward. To customize your treatment, we can adjust the intensity of the laser for comfortable, enjoyable sessions.
With adjustable intensity and the most powerful wavelength for hair removal, you get increased comfort and low maintenance requirements. Soprano is one of the safest and most efficient hair removal treatments available today.
How It Works
The amazing science behind Soprano is why we trust it for laser hair removal in Urbana. We harness the power of intense laser light with three little letters.
SHR™ is tested, proven, and painless. This method is also one of the only ones that can be used on tanned or darker skin. Due to the unique gradual heating and single pulse delivery method, SHR damages the hair follicle and hinders regrowth while protecting the surrounding tissue. The unique properties of this method make it a great choice for laser hair removal year-round!
Making The Right Waves
The Soprano laser utilzes a powerful 810 nm, wavelength. This specific power has a moderate melanin absorption level, making it safe for darker skin types. It also penetrates deep into the hair follicle, with a large 2 cm spot size and a rapid repetition rate for effective, efficient treatments. This moderate tissue depth penetration makes it ideal for treating the arms, legs, cheeks, and chin.
While some medspas may only have the Soprano laser system, Alazzo isn’t just any medspa! Through decades of experience, our specialists have found that one size never fits all. That’s why we offer not one but two industry-leading systems for laser hair removal in Urbana.
Apogee Elite Laser
Our second option for laser hair removal in Urbana uses slightly different laser technology to target skin types formerly thought to be untreatable. Patients with darker skin types and adverse skin conditions, such as pseudofolliculitis barbae (razor bumps), can benefit from our Apogee Elite laser.
How It Works
This machine includes a 755 nm Alexandrite laser and a high-powered 1064 nm Nd: YAG laser. Each specific laser has unique properties we use to permanently reduce hair by an average of 79% after just three treatments!
The 755 nm Alexandrite laser can also reduce the look of lesions, including age spots, sun spots, and freckles. We utilize the 1064 nm YAG laser for blood vessels on the body and face or excessive hair growth. This is especially helpful for the face, armpits, and bikini lines. Since these lasers are so effective and gentle, patients with pseudofolliculitis typically opt for this treatment as they consider laser hair removal in Urbana.
Keeping Your Cool
The Apogee laser incorporates the Smart Cool system by Cynosure. This system utilizes a “double cooling” technique, which uses the body’s natural cooling process in conjunction with a specifically engineered external cooling system. The Smart Cool system is used with the laser to minimize patient discomfort during treatment.
Say Goodbye to Spider Veins
The Apogee Elite laser can also treat spider veins on the face or legs. Spider veins are actually dilated or stretched blood vessels that appear on the legs, not “broken” blood vessels, as is commonly believed. By combining two powerful wavelengths, we’re able to promote healthy blood vessels within the top two layers of skin. Through multiple treatments, you’ll have less hair and healthier-looking skin to boot!
Lasers have also found a place in the treatment of vascular deformities such as hemangiomas, spider veins, and port wine stains. The YAG wavelength used in our Elite laser penetrates deeply into tissue and can be used for the coagulation of unwanted veins. Keep in mind that it will take several months to notice improvement, and we typically recommend additional vein treatments.
No treatment plan at Alazzo stops with just one treatment. During your series of laser hair removal treatments, you may think of ways you’d like to improve your beauty even further. To take your beauty to the next level, our providers can pair these treatments with your laser hair removal in Urbana.
Fraxel Laser Skin Rejuvenation
As you feel silky smooth, you may notice some fine lines and wrinkles. To address these concerns, our laser specialists are happy to recommend the Fraxel laser. This treatment works to promote collagen by delivering heat energy to targeted areas of your skin.
We utilize the Fraxel 1550 and Fraxel 1940 lasers to treat concerns such as crepey skin, acne scars, and more. To keep everything cool, the devices feature the unique SoftCool™ for maximum comfort. The treatment takes less than an hour and requires minimal downtime.
With less hair, it’s easier to see pockets of cellulite or other areas of your skin that may benefit from a little tightening. To sculpt the ideal you, our specialists have a few options.
Coolsculpting addresses unwanted fat by freezing and destroying fat cells. Emsculpt NEO treats muscle and fat on the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and legs using a radiofrequency that destroys fat and a HIFEM® procedure to stimulate muscle tone. We use EmTone to temporarily reduce the look of cellulite in a few relaxing treatments. Last but definitely not least, EmFace works to stimulate facial muscles, skin, and connective tissue to give your look the lift it deserves.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
You read that right! Instead of just focusing on your outer looks, Alazzo believes in making your total health and beauty the best they can be. Bioidentical hormone therapy, or BHRT, uses plant-derived ingredients to create estrogen and testosterone.
After we conduct a thorough analysis of your key biomarkers, we recommend the precise amount and type of BHRT. We then surgically insert tiny pellets to be absorbed into your body through natural processes. These pellets contain the optimal levels of hormones to improve your specific concerns. With proven results and full customization, this is one of the best ways to feel as great as you look!
What to Expect for Your Laser Hair Removal
Now that you know everything about laser hair removal in Urbana, let’s walk you through what you can expect from Alazzo. Here are your three steps to smoother, sexier skin.
To determine the best treatment plan for you, we’ll discuss your medical history and your goals. We’ll also perform an in-depth evaluation of your skin and hair. Our expert providers will discuss every option and help you determine what laser hair removal method is best for your hair and skin condition.
On the first day of your treatment, we’ll get you comfortable, and begin our laser hair removal treatment. You may feel a slight tug, and our specialists will check in periodically to ensure your total comfort. Treatments typically only take 15 minutes to an hour, so you can get right back to work or life after your appointment!
Before you start showing off your skin, we’ll walk you through aftercare and schedule your next session. Both of these treatments require multiple sessions to achieve complete results. We recommend follow-ups every 4 weeks for the face, every 4 to 6 weeks for the mid-body, and every 6 to 8 weeks for the legs. Redness may occur for up to a couple of days after treatment, but you’re far less likely to experience any irritation or pain than you do with the traditional hair removal options.
