An AFT light
therapy approach to eliminating unwanted hair provides the ultimate treatment
solution, unlike many other treatment methods, AFT Hair Removal leaves your skin
looking and feeling smoother and softer.
no longer have to shave, tweeze, pluck, wax, or suffer from ingrown hair! I feel
liberated!" - M.J. Miller
does AFT Hair Removal work?
Without damaging the surrounding skin, controlled
flashes of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by the hair follicles. The
heat damages or destroys the potential for regrowth. Because of the significantly
large spot size created by this unique technology, backs, shoulders, abdomens
and legs can be treated quickly. Facial areas such as the lip, chin, and beard,
can be treated in minutes.
are candidates for treatment?
Men, women, and children may be treated
with AFT. Treatments can be customized according to your hair color, texture,
and body location. Hair of any color - black, brown, and red - can be treated.
Treatment is effective on all skin types, including dark-skinned individuals of
all ethnic origins. To find out if you are a candidate, ask to schedule a consultation.
The FDA approved this technology for permanent hair reduction.
A customized program can be designed along with an estimate of how many treatment
sessions you may need.
- Less pain and discomfort compared to other treatment
- Large areas can be treated quickly.
- Chance of scarring
and pigmentation changes are minimized.
is treatment like?
First, the area to be treated is cleansed, the hair
is shaved and a cool gel is applied. Through the AFT hand piece, gentle pulses
of light are emitted and penetrate the skin to begin disabling the hair follicles.
Each pulse may feel like a snap of a rubber band or a slight sting or pinch. Most
of the hair wipes off immediately, the remaining hair falls out over a period
of a week or two.
there any possible side effects?
Side effects are rare. Blistering, soft
scabbing or redness sometimes occurs at the treatment site, but resolves quickly
or within a few days. In certain cases, the skin could become slightly lighter
or darker. You will be notified during your consultation if you are susceptible
to these side effects. For 2-4 weeks before and after treatment, you must limit
your sun exposure. This will greatly minimize the risk of complications.
