LASER HAIR REMOVAL

The unwanted hair is targeted by a high-quality concentrated beam of light. The melanin in the hair follicle absorbs the light -- converting it to heat, which then destroys the follicle sufficiently enough to prevent future growth development without harming surrounding tissue. Hair can be removed using lasers for anything from a few weeks to years, depending on each person's case, the number of sessions implemented, and the specific machine used to execute the laser hair removal treatment.

Most people feel a mild stinging when the laser beams are applied. To prevent epidermal overheating, our lasers have advanced cooling systems that automatically trigger with each pulse -- numbing your skin to the heat. Some regions of the body are more sensitive than others, however, so topical numbing is always available as an option as well.

NOT ALL LASER HAIR REMOVAL MACHINES ARE MADE THE SAME!

The best laser hair removal machine on the market is without a question the Candela GentleMax Pro!

If you're not receiving laser hair removal treatments from estheticians using the Candela GentleMax Pro laser machine, then you're just simply not getting the best laser hair removal treatments on the market, period.

The reason is that this machine incorporates both the 755nm Alexandrite laser and the 1064nm Nd:YAG laser, meaning that it can provide comprehensive treatment coverage, ideal for treating a wide range of different skin & hair types.

Results are determined by the color and thickness of your hair. Dark, rough hair is most efficiently treated with laser hair removal. When undergoing laser hair removal treatment on blonde, gray, or red body hair, some people may not see desirable results. Lighter hair is more difficult to treat because there is no pigment to target. However, the Candela GenlteMax Pro is specifically designed to be the best solution to combat this issue. Regardless, white or gray hair is mostly untreatable due to the lack of pigment in the hair follicles.

Hair will continue to grow after each laser treatment, as though it had never been treated. This generally happens for around 2-3 weeks, after which the treated hair will just start to fall out. You will begin to notice a reduction in hair growth near the third treatment, but more striking changes may be seen closer to the sixth or eighth session. Not all hair is created equal, however, and some patients will require more treatments than others in order to reach their optimal results.

The number of treatments needed for long-term benefits is determined by the region being treated, your hair density, and the hair's growth cycle. Hair grows in three stages: Anagen (active), Catagen (regression), and Telogen (resting). The goal of laser therapy is to treat the unwanted hair in the Anagen phase of development. Hair grows in distinct patterns, locations, and amounts based on a variety of variables including age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medicine, and metabolism. Although each patient is unique, our 15+ years of expertise suggests that you can expect an average of 6-8 treatments performed 6-12 weeks apart throughout the body area where the undesirable hair is located.

ABSOLUTELY!

MAKE SURE TO SHAVE the regions to be treated 24-72 hours before your appointment unless otherwise instructed by a VLA Laser Hair Removal technician. Exfoliating the surface may also aid in the natural shedding process by removing any dead skin cells on the surface. When there are no residual cells on the surface, laser treatments will penetrate deeper and be more effective. Also, cleaning the region to be treated before your appointment ensures that the area is free of oils, makeup, and other debris that may hinder treatment.

While laser hair removal is considered a safe treatment, there is a risk of burning. While the FDA adds that blistering, discoloration, redness, and scarring can be expected after a session, most clients say it feels like tiny rubber bands hitting the skin but it doesn’t feel like that everywhere-only where the hair is thick and dense. After your treatment and you come out looking like you just fell out of a beehive, you’re in great state. It’s called perifollicular edema, which is just a fancy way of saying swollen hair follicles. It means your treatment was successful. We advise our clients to expect up to 48 hours of redness, stinging, or itching-but more commonly these only last about an hour or two. Any longer than that and we recommend a hydrocortisone cream or Benadryl gel to alleviate any discomfort.

Excellent question!

DO NOT TWEEZE OR WAX the hair in the regions to be treated for at least 4 weeks before your appointment. Both tweezing and waxing pull out the entire follicle from its root. Since we are targeting the root with laser treatments, we need the follicle to be intact and in the skin for treatment.

DO NOT USE CHEMICAL DEPILATORIES such as creams, lotions, or oils on the region to be treated for at least 72 hours before your appointment. These products deteriorate the hair shaft and can prevent effective treatment.

We advise our clients to expect up to 48 hours of redness, stinging, or itching-but more commonly these only last about an hour or two. Any longer than that and we recommend a hydrocortisone cream or Benadryl gel to alleviate any discomfort.

Acne Laser

The procedure is performed with a laser. The upper dermis is heated gently, which kills acne-causing germs while also alleviating redness and early scars due to acne. We can effectively stifle the process that leads to pimples, nodules, and inflammation by destroying the bacteria and reducing pore size.

All of our acne laser treatments are quite tolerable with little to no pain, and require little recovery time.

Here are some of the benefits of the Acne Laser services we offer:

- Irradicate Acne Causing Bacteria

- Reduce RednessReduce Inflammation

- Reduce Future Breakouts

- Reduce Appearance of Acne Scars

- Decreases Oil Production

LIP BLUSH TATTOO

Lip blushing is a form of semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo. This treatment will change the natural color of your lips to the shade of your choice. It can also be used to lighten naturally dark lips. This is a great way to define the outline of your natural shape and can slightly enhance the size of your lips as well.

Between 2 and 5 years, depending on how carefully you follow aftercare instructions and how many touch ups you come in for.

Pain levels vary from client to client. Strong medical grade topical anesthetic cream is used before and during your procedure to keep you as pain free as possible.

The procedure will take around 2 hours. The consultation and prep work take a good portion of that time. We want to make sure all of your questions and concerns are addressed. Following your full consultation, I will apply numbing cream for 20-30 minutes and then the process will begin.

It takes around 5 to 10 days for the lips to initially heal and they will continue to improve over the following weeks. Be aware that the color will vary quite a lot during the healing process before reaching the final color that you agreed upon with your technician. We will also send you home with aftercare guidelines to follow as well as what you can expect as your lips heal.

Unfortunately, like with most things, contraindications that will prevent you from getting the lip blush tattoo treatment. If any of the following apply to then chances are you won't be eligible for this treatment:

- Diabetes, Glaucoma or blood thinning diseases

- Severe acne or use of Accutane within the past year

- Epilepsy

- Previous tattoo on lip

- Undergoing chemotherapy

- Keloid Reaction

- Transmittable blood diseases such as HIV/Hepatitis

- Skin Cancer on/near the lips

- Eczema on/near the lips

- Shingles on/near the lips

- Rash on/near the lips

- Active cold sore on/near the lips

- Have allergies to alcohol

COSMETIC TEETH WHITENING

Vanity Laser’s Cosmetic Teeth Whitening causes no harm to the teeth. It is a safe option and even considered for people who have sensitive teeth. As it was considered reliable, people who are generally intimidated by a trip to the dentist no longer have to be.

Our technicians are completely qualified in all aspects of Cosmetic Teeth Whitening. Your gums, lips, and lining of your mouth are protected at all times. We apply the corresponding standard of care & consideration that you would expect from your dentist.

Most clients do not feel any uneasiness throughout treatment. We have very professional technicians who will communicate with you during the process.

There are two separate 10-15 minute application times. Before your treatment starts our technician will thoroughly explain the process. Altogether treatment time is a little under an hour.

Even though it is proven that there are NO side effects, some people may feel slight sensitivity for an hour or so after treatment. These indications normally pass by quickly, usually within the first 2 hours after treatment.

To fully enjoy the advantages of Vanity Laser Teeth Whitening, make certain you follow these aftercare procedures: As much as you can, avoid staining drinks like Coffee, Red Wine, Tea colored soft or alcoholic drinks and fruit juices. Also, try to withdraw from eating dark staining foods like chocolate, soy sauce, red meat and all fruits except bananas. Smoking for the first 24 hours just after your Laser Teeth Whitening treatment is strictly forbidden as that will discolor your teeth right away. Use a plain white toothpaste or mouthwash for 24 hours as it will also stain your teeth right away.

One session of VLA'S Cosmetic Teeth Whitening is sufficient to produce a noticeable difference to your teeth. Your teeth are instantly several shades whiter than its former color. In very severe cases of teeth discoloration, however, reoccurring sessions may be required to obtain a whiter shade that you may desire.

SCAR & STRETCHMARK CAMOUFLAGE

Scar & stretch mark camouflage, also known as Skin Camouflage, is done by using special tattoo pigments. Our VLA Skin Camouflage technicians can recolor scars to more closely match your natural skin tone.

For every procedure, we take the time to make you as comfortable as possible. Our technicians apply a numbing cream before and during the treatment. We use pigments that are FDA-approved and made specifically for procedures performed on potentially sensitive areas. At VLA, our goal is to give you the best and safest results possible.

We can also camouflage scars in areas where hair grows, such as the eyebrows, by mimicking the natural fall of hair. This also works for scars on the scalp after an accident or hair transplant procedure.

This is a totally non-invasive, non-surgical treatment done using pigments that have proven to be safe.

And to give you a little extra peace of mind, our certified VLA Skin Camouflage experts are the best in NY!

Unfortunately, we do live in a society that frequently stigmatizes anything deemed ‘different.’ This means that people who live with noticeable differences also commonly live with prejudice, intrusive stares, inappropriate questioning, name-calling and even sometimes physical abuse. It is for this reason that many choose to hide their conditions with skin camouflage.

People choose to have skin camouflage because it enables them to:

- Avoid extra attention

- No longer feel defined by their altered image

- Blend into the crowd when they want to

- Feel more confident in their own skin

Skin camouflage offers a simple solution to complex problems – its role immediately after diagnosis or at a later date can help clients regain their confidence and self-esteem and allow them to return to normal life.

Anyone with striations of any size that look white and exaggerates the contrast with their skin color qualifies for the procedure.

This treatment can be done in one session. However, some cases may need a touch-up. The procedure can last anywhere from 45 minutes on, this all depends on the size of the area you would like to work on.

A stretch mark is a tear in the skin caused by breaking down collagen fibers. They are typically caused by genetics, dryness, drastic fluctions in weight, and lack of hydration & moisturization.
