LASER HAIR REMOVAL
IT’S TIME TO SAY GOODBYE TO HAIR…AND HELLO TO THE SMOOTH LIFE!
At Floating Lotus, we believe in beauty from the inside out. Some of our treatments focus on the inside, balancing out your body. But we also know that to feel good, you need to look good. Our laser hair removal treatments are designed to make you feel sexy and confident.
Laser hair removal is a process carefully designed to permanently reduce hair from your body and face. Laser is superior to waxing and shaving which require repeated treatments all the time. A short series of laser treatments reduce hair growth – for life.
Additionally, unlike waxing and shaving, which cause ingrown hairs, our laser hair treatments actually remove ingrown hair.
IN JUST A HANDFUL OF SESSIONS, YOUR SKIN IS TRANSFORMED AND YOUR LIFE IS CHANGED
The process is short. On average, most people can complete permanent results in five or six laser sessions. The average duration of a session is anywhere between 15-90 minutes, depending on which areas are being treated.
In your first session, Marissa or Kait, our Laser Specialists, will work with you to find the right settings for your hair type and your pain tolerance, and will set your laser plan. You will begin to see some immediate results and any hair that returns will grow thinner and lighter.
As the sessions progress, we will adjust the settings and continue to reduce the hair growth further. We will have you come in for short complementary touch ups in between sessions to insure that no hair is left behind!
When your sessions are complete you will be smooth for life! It will be hard to remember a time when you needed to constantly shave and wax to look and feel this good.

QUESTIONS ABOUT LASER?
What type of laser technology does Floating Lotus use?
Floating Lotus uses Cynosure technology for laser hair removal. Cynosure’s Elite is the most comprehensive laser hair removal system available today. Whether your skin is light or dark, we can treat you safely and effectively. The Elite removes unwanted hair easily and comfortably. That is because it has revolutionary technology which combines two wavelengths into one system: the 755-nm Alexandrite laser and the 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser. The 755-nm wavelength has high melanin absorption characteristics and has proven long-term results for permanent hair reduction and pigmented lesion removal. The high-powered 1064-nm Nd:YAG is the safest wavelength for permanent hair reduction on darker skin types and tanned skin. The Elite delivers high fluence from large spot sizes- ensuring deeper penetration, faster treatment sessions and optimal results.
Because it is easy to switch back and forth between wavelengths, we are able to treat more than one skin type per treatment with the same machine. For example: While away on vacation, your legs became tanned and your bikini area is still pale. We can safely treat both areas with different wavelengths if necessary, and you don’t even have to move!
Pain is never an issue with our Cynosure cooling system. This system comes equipped with a powerful cooling mechanism. The cold air is adjustable to your comfort zone. The cold air can be increased or decreased depending on your comfort level, skin type, or other needs.
Is laser painful?
Our Cynosure cooling system is the least painful laser on the market. its cooling system, the ZImmer, feels like a strong fan or air conditioning blowing on your skin. This helps relieve heat and pain. Pain varies from person to person and some people do feel more sensitive then others. The first sessions tend to be more sensitive, but as time goes on and your body becomes accustomed to laser, the pain reduces dramatically.
Can I get acupuncture after laser hair removal?
Absolutely. You may get acupuncture without any counteracting effecting from the benefits of your laser hair removal treatment. In fact, acupuncture will actually speed up healing after laser hair removal or any other bodily surgical procedures. Many of our clients find that they go for acupuncture treatments after laser and find it helps them cope with other conditions that they had not considered.
How should I prepare for my laser treatment?
You must shave 24 hours prior to treatment. (Failure to shave before arrival will result in an extra 20 dollar fee.).
Make sure your skin has not been recently tanned. You should wait a minimum of two weeks for laser after significant sun exposure.
Make sure that the treatment area will not be immediately exposed to sun after treatment for at least one week.
What should I do after my laser treatment?
Within two to three weeks after your treatment, you will actually see hair beginning to grow. This is the old hair that will be shedding. In fact, if you pull on these hairs they will fall right out!
During the shedding time (after 7-10 days from the treatment) you should exfoliate the skin.
Do not expose treatment area to direct sunlight for at least 1 week.
Do not take extremely hot showers for 24 hours. Warm/cool showers are fine.
Be gentle with the treatment area, do not exfoliate for at to 2-3 days after your treatment.
Do not put perfume/lotions with perfume directly on treatment area for a few days.
Avoid going into saunas or steam rooms for at least 24 hours.
For any irritation or sensitivity we recommend using pure aloe vera.
