Apex 800 Hair Removal Laser
The Apex 800 uses an intense beam of light to target hair follicles, the part of hair responsible for growth. The laser injures the hair follicle, but not the surrounding skin. The laser treats more than one hair at a time, making it the perfect solution for large treatment areas, such as the back, arms, legs, face, or chest.
For your comfort, the Apex 800 has a cooling tip that makes the treatment gentle for the most delicate skin areas. Sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, bikini line, nipple, and genitals can be treated effectively with only minimal discomfort. In most cases, an anesthetic is not necessary.
The treatment time depends on the size of the area being treated. Treatment times may vary from about 15 minutes to over an hour. Treatments may have to be repeated because of hair growth cycles. Most people achieve desirable results in three to six sessions.
