THE STAGES OF HAIR GROWTH
A hair in the active growth or "Anagen" phase of growth has unique properties. These physical characteristics make the hair follicle extremely vulnerable to the laser. All hair containing melanin will absorb the laser beam, but only those in the active phase of growth are susceptible to being permanently destroyed. To understand exactly how laser hair removal works and why more than one treatment session is needed, it is important to know the three growth cycles of hair:
Anagen Phase: Also known as the growth phase, this stage of hair growth typically takes 3-5 years and determines hair length.
Catagen Phase: During this transitional phase, which lasts approximately 10 days or so, the hair follicle begins to shrink and hair prepares to shed.
Telogen Phase: The resting phase is the final stage of hair growth, lasting anywhere between 2-4 months and characterized by gradual hair shedding.
Remember, laser hair removal only works on hair during the active growth phase. This means patients usually need to undergo multiple hair removal treatment sessions, spaced 5-8 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.
THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT
The hair in the treatment area will be trimmed or shaved as close to the skin’s surface as possible. The laser is adjusted to the proper setting for the skin color, as well as the location, and thickness of the hair. The skin will be protected with a cooling device or cold gel, and the eyes will be protected with appropriate eyewear. All make-up, sunscreen, and aftershave are completely rinsed off.
A pulse of light is given to the area. The light passes through the skin to the hair follicle, damaging it and inhibiting future hair growth. This is done without damaging the skin. Laser hair removal is well-tolerated, but some patients feel a bit of a sting.
After your laser hair removal treatment, you may be some slight redness for a few hours following treatment. Mild discomfort may be experienced but is easily managed. A soothing cream may be recommended by your Faces Medspa laser technician. The use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF 30 or above) daily after treatment with reapplication is essential.

What do neuromodulators do?Neuromodulators (including Botox and Dysport) relax the muscles and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the face and neck. These treatments combat forehead lines, glabella lines ("11's" between the brows), crows feet (around the eyes), smile lines, neck lines, and other wrinkles associated with aging. They can also be used to help sculpt and lift facial features including for a nonsurgical brow lift and a nonsurgical neck lift.
What is the difference between BOTOX and Dysport?While BOTOX and Dysport both use the same substance (botulinum toxin A) and are based on the same mechanism of action, the size of the molecules in the injections are significantly different. Dysport contains smaller molecules of botulinum toxin type A than BOTOX. - Dysport can spread through your cells more easily - Dysport may begin working slightly faster than BOTOX - Results from Dysport and Botox last for a similar amount of time
How many units of Botox will I need? How many units of Dysport will I need?The amount of units needed can differ from person to person depending upon your desired outcome, the area of concern to be treated, the strength of the muscles in the area, and whether the treatment is for prevention or to treat existing fine lines and wrinkles and their severity.
When will I see results from Botox and Dysport?Most patients can expect to notice early results of Dysport between two to five days following treatment, while results from Botox may take seven to fourteen days. The degree of muscle relation can continue to evolve for about two weeks and the results last for three to four months. The longer the BOTOX treatments have been routinely performed, the more relaxed the facial wrinkles will appear over time. Results of Dysport are similar, but often with a slightly quicker onset of action.
How long does Botox last? How long does Dysport last?Results may vary based upon the dose given, as well as on muscle strength of the area and metabolism, as our bodies metabolize (or break down) the Neuromodulators over time. Treatment to maintain your results are recommend every three to four months. Using medical grade skin care products at home as part of a daily skin care regime can help to maintain your results and improve the appearance and quality of your skin.
Does Botox and Dysport hurt?Many of us are not big fans of shots, especially needles in general. However, Neuromodulators are generally quickly injected with a minimal amount of discomfort, using the smallest needle available. Many of our patients barely notice the injections.
Who are good candidates for BOTOX and Dysport?BOTOX and Dysport have been proven safe and effective for treatment of a wide variety of patient and wrinkle types, however, the earlier the treatment is started, the more favorable the results can be. Some patients are not candidates for this type of treatment and include those diagnosed with neurological conditions or disorders affecting muscle movement, history of allergy to the botulinum toxin product, or those with unrealistic expectations from the treatment. Patients who are pregnant or nursing are discouraged from undergoing treatment.
