What areas can I treat with laser to remove unwanted hair?

Any area of the body can be treated, except for the eyelashes.  The most commonly requested areas are the underarms, bikini line, upper lip, chin, face, neck and legs for women; and the back, chest, and abdomen for men.  The arms, hands, feet, and ears are also commonly treated.

Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?

The best candidates have dark, coarse hair and light skin.  Blond and red hair on tanned skin cannot be successfully treated.  Our patients include actresses, actors, models, professional men and women, physicians, nurses, homemakers, students, and children.  Our lasers are used to remove normal hair, such as fine dark hair on the upper lip, and abnormal hair, such as beard hair on women with hormonal abnormalities.

Who are the best candidates?

People with coarse, black hair which is darker than the surrounding skin.  New laser technology available at the Institute of Laser Medicine now enables treatment of patients with all skin types, including white, black, asian, and tanned skin.

What color hair can be removed?

Brown and black hair is the easiest to remove.  White and grey hair, which lack pigment, will not respond to treatment.  Blond and red hair is difficult to remove with current laser technology.

Are there people who cannot be treated?

Yes.  Patients whose hair color is lighter than their skin, such as tanned patients with blonde hair, cannot be treated.  New laser technology now allows treatment of patients with all skin types at the Mamsurg Laser.

Are there medical reasons why some people cannot be treated?

This technology is so gentle that it is exceedingly well tolerated, in general.  Patients with dark skin will find the laser treatment less comfortable.  No medication, either before or after treatment, is required.  Now virtually anyone can be treated, except those rare people who are allergic to light, except as noted above.

What is laser therapy?

A technology based on the use of laser light, like acupuncture, It's simply point therapy, but without the needles. It's a holistic approach to heal the body. A low level light pulse is directed at points on the face, ears and hands. Low Level Laser Therapy ( LLL T) is a drug-free, painless, and non-invasive method that has been in use since the 1960s. The technique works by using lasers to non-thermally and non-invasively stimulate the body's healing processes.

How does low-level laser therapy for smoking cessation work?

MAMSUGLASER is offering  clinical trials using laser therapy for smoking and weight loss. Therapeutic lasers are applied to therapeutic points on the body known as acupuncture points. Low-level laser therapy operates on principles similar to the 5,000 year old ancient Asian healing art of Acupuncture. Acupuncture is known to reduce tension, increase circulation, and enable the body to relax more deeply.  Our clinical trials are evaluating whether therapeutic laser, when applied to acupuncture points,  produces a therapeutic effect specific to the condition, normalizing the body's imbalances. Laser therapy has been used traditionally for a variety of treatments and for mental, physical, and emotional disorders such as stress, depression, and insomnia. Laser therapy is considered a non-medical procedure NOT TRUE. This therapy is presently under investigation in the U.S to see if it promotes the release of endorphins in the body, thereby reducing or eliminating the cravings & physical withdrawal symptoms of nicotine addiction. Endorphins are natural chemicals in your body that signal your system to decrease stress and increase energy. We use the Omega Laser.  The Omega is a low powered (soft) galium aluminum arsenide laser. The laser is no more powerful than a 60-watt light bulb. Laser is applied to energy points related to addiction. The entire procedure is external, non-invasive, and non-thermal. Laser Therapy is drug free. During the session, laser light is applied to energy points on your hands, face, and ears. If a client feels the sensation from the low-level laser, they may feel a warm, pulsating and sometimes-tingling feeling. Some clients may only feel a calming sensation from the laser. The low-level laser acts as a tool to assist the client through the initial physical withdrawals from nicotine. The first 72 hours of quitting is considered to be the crucial detoxification period. This therapy has been used for over three decades in Europe and Canada .

What type of laser do you use?

We use one of the most advanced and reliable lasers available, the Omega Laser.  The Omega uses a low level (soft) laser, no more powerful than a 60-watt light bulb.

Omega Laser Systems has a fifteen year history of research and development based upon a sound working relationship with centres of clinical and research excellence throughout the world. (for more information about the Omega Laser Systems and links to their research, www.omegalaser.com

How can I obtain more research or information on the clinical aspect of low level laser therapy?

There is a large body of research to be found on the clinical effects of low level laser. The library at Omega Laser is extensive and relates to all areas of clinical research and its relevance to the practicing clinician. (for more information on this research click here.

Do you have more information on how laser therapy works?

The low level laser stimulates afferent terminations of the pain transmitting A-delta fibers in the Central Nervous System. Stimulation at specific acupuncture points causes the anterior pituitary of the brain to produce endorphins through the breakdown of a large molecular complex known as ACTH/Blipotronphin. This molecule is broken down to produce B-endorphin and other opiates known as Enkephalins. This increased production of endorphins provides analgesic effects to combat withdrawal by binding at receptor sites of inflammation, nerve fibers and their receptive field, and throughout the autonomic and immune systems. Endorphins also exert a powerful influence in the Central Nervous System on the Nucleus Raphe Magnus which in turn activate the descending control system resulting in inhibition of the dorsal horns and modulation of pain.

How do you feel after a laser session?

Most patients report feeling  very relaxed and some people experience a degree of drowsiness.

Where do you place the laser?

The laser is placed on various meridian and auricular points on the body around the ears, nose, hands, and wrists.

Is it safe?

Low level lasers are  bio-stimulation lasers, not surgical lasers. They do not cut, burn or damage tissue. Low level lasers have been ruled non-significant risk devices (NSR) by the FDA. Your laser session will be adminsytered by a certified Laser Technician, specifically trained in low level Laser Therapy.

Is it guaranteed?

Unfortunately, because of the complexities of the psychological side of the addiction, no one can force you to stop smoking but laser therapy is intended to reduce or  eliminate the withdrawl symptoms and physical normally associated with quitting smoking. Our certified laser technician will give you special training to help deal with your emotional desire to smoke and some nutritional guidelines to help your body to detoxify itself very quickly. As long as you want to quit our caring staff is here to help you.

How long will it take?

The laser session itself takes less than 30 minutes. Many patients have  only one laser therapy session, however if you experience an unmanageable desire to smoke, a laser booster session is available.

If I have a medical condition, can I still have laser therapy?

If you are pregnant or have epilepsy, we regret that we are not able to treat you at this time. If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact your doctor before being treated.

Is the laser session performed by a doctor?

No, it is performed by a laser technician, however, all physicians are available for performing the laser therapy if there are any questions.

I have never heard of low level laser, who else does this?

Low level laser has been available in Europe and Canada for over 30 years. We are the first to offer the program in this area.

I'm concerned about gaining weight once I quit smoking cigarettes, can you do anything to help?

When you quit smoking your metabolism slows back down to normal. During the laser session, laser light is applied to appetite suppression points.

How does it work? The short answer.

Medical reports have shown that smokers have a higher level of "endorphins." These are the body's natural calming and stimulating chemicals which are triggered by the intake of cigarette smoke. These are the least harmful effects from smoking. It's the many other toxic, caustic, carcinogins and chemicals a smoker intakes that are particularily deadly.

When you stop smoking, the sudden drop in endorphins is the main reason for the craving effect.

L.L.L.T. (Low Level Laser Therapy) used on acupuncture points, is under investigation to see if it stimulates the body's natural mechanism to boost the endorphin levels. It is completely drug-free, non-invasive and even relaxing, using Laser pure light energy.
