Laser Hair Removal

OVME’s laser hair removal device, the Quanta Forte, is the gold standard of hair removal. Quanta’s proprietary laser hair removal technology delivers energy directly to melanin in the hair follicles. Since hair follicles go through a number of growth stages, Quanta Forte laser hair removal requires approximately 5-6 treatments to achieve hair growth reduction of 90-95%.

 

As opposed to traditional laser hair removal, the Quanta Forte has a dramatically increased “spot” treatment size, allowing it to treat larger areas in a shorter period of time. The QF also offers vacuum-assist technology which makes the treatments more comfortable. The Quanta Forte’s two hand pieces, allow for permanent hair removal on all skin types.  #InnOVation #OVMEForYou #PartOVME

At OVME the process of receiving a laser hair removal treatment is quite simple. We ask that all patients come to the appointment with the treatment areas shaved (not waxed) and prepped. If there is excess hair in the treatment areas, we will shave and prep the locations at the time of the appointment. Our OVME Certified providers are trained to adjust the laser for optimal performance according to skin type.

 

The Quanta’s hand piece is placed on the skin and a beam of focused energy is delivered to the treatment area.  The treatment time entirely depends on the area being treated.  For example, legs and backs can typically be done in 15-20 minutes. While there is little to no downtime following  treatment, it is not uncommon for patients to experience mild redness, itching and swelling of the hair follicles post procedure. These side effects normally resolve within two days after the treatment.

 

Quanta Forte is by far the best laser hair removal option. It offers both comfort and speed.  Visit OVME today for a complimentary consultation.

Top 10 Laser Hair Removal FAQ

How long does the treatment take?

Varying from areas treated, an area as large as a back that used to take an hour, now only takes 15-20 minutes.

When will I see results?

You may notice hair reduction after your first treatment, although the full 90% reduction will take up to 8 treatments.

How many treatments do I need?

Depending on your skin and hair color we typically recommend 4-7 treatments for lighter skin patients and 5-9 treatments for darker skin patients.

How much does it cost?

Are there any side effects?

Typical side effects that may occur after treatment including itchy skin, pink/redness and possible mild swelling of the hair follicle.

How do laser hair removal and electrolysis differ?

Electrolysis is another hair removal method. Unlike laser hair removal, electrolysis can be used on all hair color, including white/light hair. While laser hair removal is only used on dark hair, it is a less painful and faster option for hair removal.

Can I go out in the sun during treatments?

Prolonged sun exposure is not recommended during treatment. We will not be able to treat areas with high sun exposure to ensure that the laser targets the hair follicle and not the melanin in the skin. We recommend treating during times of the year with less sun exposure.

Who is a good candidate?

While laser hair removal is effective in removing hair on patients of all skin type, it is most effective on light skin with dark hair.

Does the procedure hurt?

The laser hair removal process is much less painful with the new Quanta Forte technology and is conducted without an anesthetic or pain medication.

Does it really matter who does my treatment?

Although there are minimal regulations on who can treat patients with laser hair removal, it is recommended that a licensed professional with laser experience do your procedure. Correct settings and hand piece placement effect optimal results.
