Mynx Aesthetik Services Laser Hair Removal
Are you tired of tweezing, shaving, and waxing away body hair? Would you like to permanently minimize unwanted hair with a safe, personalized treatment? Laser hair removal at Mynx Aesthetik in Ruston, WA, is a quick, comfortable, long-term solution that clears away body hair and helps with certain skin issues as well.
These treatments use laser energy to heat pigment in the skin, damaging hair follicles so that they no longer support hair growth. Treatments can usually be completed in less than 30 minutes and involve no downtime. Depending on the size of the treatment area, most patients benefit from a series of sessions.
Our practice uses the Elite iQ system to remove hair from all over the body, including Brazilian treatments. The Elite system is equipped with a melanin reader that allows it to adjust to each patient’s skin type and find the perfect setting, ensuring optimum results. In addition to permanently reducing hair, the Elite iQ system can treat spider veins, fine lines and wrinkles, liver spots, sun damage, and other skin concerns.
What Types of Hair Does This Work On

Our Elite iQ system hasn’t met a hair it can’t beat. It effectively treats all types of hair, including fair and coarse hair, and it works on all skin tones. It’s an effective option for both female and male patients.

How IT Works

Laser hair removal treatments are straightforward. We’ll ask you to come to your appointment with the treatment area clean-shaven, and we’ll start by using the melanin reader to measure your skin so that we can set up the appropriate treatment. We’ll then guide the laser handpiece over your treatment area, emitting beams of energy.
When Will I See the Results?

Laser treatments only work on hair when it is in an active phase of growth, and only 20 to 40% of your hair is actively growing at any time. This means multiple sessions that are spaced several weeks apart are usually needed to catch all of the hairs when they are growing. Patients typically notice a gradual decline in the amount of hair throughout their treatment series.

We often recommend that patients schedule anywhere from three to six sessions, and larger treatment areas often involve more appointments.

How Should I Care for My Skin After Treatment?

During the first two weeks after the session, shield the treatment area from UV light. You will also be asked to refrain from shaving and excessive scrubbing during the first few days after treatment.

Should I Continue With Other Forms of Hair Removal While Undergoing Treatment?

For laser treatments to work, your follicles must contain hair, and waxing and tweezing remove hair from the root. We recommend that patients discontinue removal methods that pull hair out of the root at least two weeks before their first appointment.

Is This a Safe Treatment?

The Elite iQ system we use is an advanced approach to laser hair removal that is completely safe. Elite iQ is the only system equipped with an FDA-approved melanin reader. You will be asked to wear special glasses during treatment to protect your eyes.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Most healthy adults who are not pregnant and who are eager to get rid of unwanted body hair are suitable candidates. Your skin in the treatment area should also be healthy. During your initial consultation, we’ll review your medical history and any medications you are taking, evaluate your skin, and determine if this treatment system is right for you.

What Benefits Are Associated With This Treatment?

It Will Save You Time

Think about all the maintenance that goes into keeping body hair at bay. Shaving, plucking, and waxing appointments all take time and, in some cases, they are uncomfortable! Once you’ve had a series of laser hair removal treatments, you won’t have to worry about unwanted hair again. Laser treatments are a time and cost-effective way of removing hair from large swaths of skin.

It Takes Ingrown Hair Out of the Equation

Because laser treatments break down the hair follicle, they reduce your risk of experiencing ingrown hair, so you won’t have to worry about bumps and itching any longer.

It's Precise

Shaving your legs might not be too bad, but it can be difficult to tend to body hair in small areas like the skin between your eyebrows or the outer perimeters of a beard. The precision of a laser treatment makes it easy to address very specific areas of hair.

It Beautifies Your Skin

Laser treatments encourage healthy skin cell growth, which can improve the texture and tone of your skin while also minimizing breakouts. These treatments can also clear up areas of hyperpigmentation, spider veins, and fine lines.

It Builds Self Confidence

Unwanted body hair is frustrating to deal with, and it can take a toll on your appearance. It’s a relief to get rid of it for the long term, so you don’t have to worry about it any longer. Undergoing a series of laser hair removal treatments can renew your self-confidence and allow you to feel great about your skin and your appearance again.
