laser hair removal
Technology in the beauty industry is ever-evolving, and for that, we are all grateful! Providers are taking advantage of their ability to offer multiple treatments like laser hair removal (LHR), intense pulsed light (IPL) for skin resurfacing, and radiofrequency (RF) energy for facial and body rejuvenation using only one machine. That is how Optimas by InMode works!

Why Choose Optimas for Healthy, Smooth Skin?

Simply put, because it safely combines multiple technologies in one device. If you have any aesthetic skin concerns, it’s likely that Optimas can address it.
  • Laser hair removal penetrates the skin and is absorbed by melanin in hair follicle roots. The heat from the light energy disrupts and damages the follicles, which effectively inhibits future hair growth.
  • IPL is a non-invasive procedure that targets various skin concerns. It emits broad-spectrum light, addressing issues such as pigmentation irregularities, sun damage, fine lines, and vascular lesions. The light energy stimulates collagen production resulting in improved skin tone, texture, and a more youthful appearance.
  • Radiofrequency energy is used in skincare treatments to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. By delivering controlled heat to the deeper layers, RF promotes collagen remodeling, reducing wrinkles, and improving skin elasticity. It is most commonly used during Morpheus8 for face and body.

How Do I Prepare for Optimas LHR, IPL, or RF Treatments?

You may be asked to take good care of your skin by exfoliating and staying out of the sun, removing all fake tanning products, and stopping all methods of hair removal except for shaving. You should arrive at your appointment for IPL, LHR, or RF treatments with clean skin free of deodorants, lotions, and perfumes. These steps are certainly not difficult but are necessary for the best results. Be sure to follow all prep instructions given to you by your Optimas specialist.

How Quickly Will I See Results?

This depends on the treatment, but it is safe to say that dramatic progress does not occur overnight. While you might see change after one session of laser hair removal, IPL, or RF, it takes time to see significant results. As an example, you might see some skin tightening soon after Morpheus8, with continued improvement over several weeks as collagen production increases. No matter the treatment you choose, multiple sessions are necessary to achieve optimal effects, and follow-up appointments will be required in the future to maintain them. Follow the guidance of your provider regarding the number of sessions you require and when to schedule them.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal, IPL, or RF With Optimas?

This conversation should be had during your consultation for Optimas treatments. Generally speaking, those who have healthy skin without active acne or infections and contrast between skin tone / hair color respond best to treatment. These procedures are not typically recommended for anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding. Individuals who have utilized tanning beds or acquired a recent tan or sunburn should wait for their skin to fully heal before having any type of laser hair removal.
