Customer Q&A: Mike Davis

Mike Davis of Scottsdale, Arizona is one of our most valued customers. He has been coming to Simplicity for almost two years now, starting out with face and neck treatments and finally deciding to upgrade to a full body membership. We were excited to talk to him about why he chose Simplicity Laser and why he keeps coming back for more!

Why did you choose Simplicity Laser for laser hair removal?

I used to get ingrown hairs on my face when I shave - and these can be very painful.  I remember hearing about laser years ago but understood that it can be more challenging if you have darker pigmented skin as I do.  I am that researcher type, so once I got the idea to give laser a try I did as much research as I could.  That led me to the Simplicity website where they advertised that they knew how to care for my skin type, supported by testimonials.  I believe I called to talk to someone armed with my ‘just enough to be dangerous’ research facts asking about what lasers they used, etc.  The answers they gave plus the testimonials on the website were the items that made me take the plunge.

Which areas have you had treated?

I started with the face to solve the ingrown hair issue.  That was so successful and I was treated so well I decided to go full body.  I am generally shy, so that was a leap for me but I have always been made to feel very comfortable and it is really working! My only regret is not doing this sooner.

How has having laser hair removal changed your life?

You might ask how hasn’t it?  The largest impact for me are that I no longer get ingrown hairs and I no longer have to shave.  This has allowed my skin to become very smooth and has protected it from the damage of shaving and ingrown hairs.  What can I say, chicks dig it.

What is you favorite thing about Simplicity Laser?

The people.  The more I learn the more I realize that any business, no matter what you sell or manufacture, comes down to people.  How you treat people is such a large part of any successful business and becomes and integral part of your brand identity.  If you ask me about Simplicity, I’ll tell you it is as much about good service as it is skilled workmanship and that’s why I feel blessed to have chosen the right place the first time.  I am not sure if this will wind up on the cutting room floor but I must say that Cass Lounsbury is one of the most wonderful people I have ever met.  When I am on my way to my appointments I think I am coming in for a laser procedure, but by the time I leave I realize I was coming in to see my friend.

 

We are so happy to have optimistic customers like Mike! He makes our job easy.

5 Questions to Ask Before You Get Laser Hair Removal

If you love the idea of never needing to shave again while still enjoying the silky smooth skin that you get post-shave, laser hair removal is probably for you. Ending the monotony of shaving or the pain from waxing regularly is certainly appealing for both men and women of all ages. When you make the decision to get laser hair removal, there are a lot of choices you have for where to go, so before you commit to one place, make sure you ask these five questions.

1) Do You Specialize in Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal has grown tremendously over the past decade, and there are some businesses out there who may not specialize in it, but who have decided to add it on to other services. You will often find that you get better results from a place that is dedicated to laser hair removal, focused on hiring the best and most qualified technicians who have the latest technology at their disposal. In addition, technicians who spend a significant amount of time working with laser hair removal equipment will be able to use it comfortably, safely, and effectively.

2) What Laser Hair Removal Technology Do You Use?

As more and more people become interested in laser hair removal treatments throughout the U.S., the industry is advancing to include better technology. Before you receive any treatment, talk to the company about what kind of lasers they use and ask about why they use that specific type. The best technology will provide safe and effective hair removal while maintaining the highest level of comfort possible during the process.

3) What Training Do Your Technicians Have?

Even the best technology is not going to give you quality laser hair removal if the technicians are not properly trained in its use. Before you commit to any treatments find out more about the training and education level of the provider, and whether they have any licenses or certifications required in your state.

4) What Treatment Regimen Do You Recommend?

Hair on your body grows at different rates and different times, which means that you will need more than a single laser hair removal treatment in order to eradicate all the hair. Because of this, you should have a clear understanding of what the treatment facility recommends for your laser hair removal regimen. Before you get started make sure you understand:

  • How many treatments they recommend in order to get the best results
  • How often you should schedule your appointments (how long to wait between appointments)
  • What hours and days the clinic is open and how easy it will be to book appointments around your personal schedule

5) What Should I Do to Prepare for My Treatment?

Laser hair removal does come with some risks, but fortunately you can minimize many of the risks by working with highly trained and qualified technicians who use the best laser hair removal technology. It’s important to follow the instructions of the technician prior to your appointment (such as avoiding sun exposure and not waxing or plucking hairs) so your skin is ready and the treatment can be effective.

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

All of our experience with laser hair removal has taught us one thing: everyone’s skin is different and reacts differently to the treatment. The truth is that it is common to feel an increase in pain as the strength of the laser increases. 

Fortunately, the experts at Simplicity Laser have a few recommendations for relieving the pain. Read through this list before your next treatment for a pain free experience:

The pain from laser hair removal is caused by heat targeting the hair follicle beneath the skin. This heat is not damaging to any other part of the skin and actually leaves your skin feeling smooth and healthy.
Stay positive! Imagine yourself laying on the beach hair-free without having to wax, shave or tweeze for an hour beforehand. The carefree, hair-free life after laser is glorious and definitely worth it!

The Do’s and Don’ts of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal has soared in popularity over the past few years—a way to make your life and your grooming habits easier if you don’t have to shave or wax all the time. As a result of its popularity many people are now seeking out the service, but if you have never had laser hair removal from a place like
Simplicity Laser before it’s important that you understand some of the do’s and don’ts to follow both before, during, and after your treatment.

 

 

 

         

PREPARING FOR YOUR TREATMENT

The most important thing as you get ready for your laser hair removal treatment is that your skin is healthy and undamaged, and you have roots so the laser has something to target and then will stop the hair follicle from growing hair again. 

DO: Wear sunblock with SPF 30 or higher if you are planning to be in the sun within a week of your treatment. 

 

DON’T: Go to the tanning beds or get sunburned. Also avoid the use of heavily perfumed lotions or creams prior to the treatment.

DO: Shave the area that you plan to have laser hair removal treatment on the night before you’re headed to the treatment center. This helps to make sure that the laser has a target, the root, in the hair follicle.

DON’T: Wax, bleach, or pluck the hairs in the area where you are getting laser treatment. The way laser treatments at Simplicity Laser work is by targeting the root of the hair follicle, destroying the hair follicle so it won’t grow in the future. Plucking or waxing hairs removes the root, which means the laser won’t be able to target it effectively. 

DURING YOUR LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT

Once you arrive for your treatment at Simplicity Laser it’s imperative that you follow all the instructions of the staff to ensure you and everyone else remains safe and the
 treatment is effective.

DO: Make sure you choose a reputable laser hair removal treatment facility. Read reviews, ask about qualifications, and work with a licensed esthetician.

DO: Wear the protective eyewear they provide for you—you may think you look silly, but looking a little weird for a few minutes is much better than suffering eye damage.

DON’T: Be afraid to ask questions or speak up if something is uncomfortable during the treatment. Your technician is there to help you, so make sure you let them know how you’re feeling or ask if there is something you don’t understand. 

AFTER LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Once the procedure is done you need to continue caring for the skin properly to ensure you don’t have irritated skin or other problems.

DO: Use the Restorative Gel provided by your Simplicity technician after treatment. You may also want to get more for a few days after the treatment to minimize redness or other irritation, speed healing and prepare skin for your next treatment.

DON’T: Expose the area to the sun for a week after treatment or take hot baths and showers, or sit in a sauna for one or two days after the treatment. 

DO: Follow all post-treatment instructions to ensure you have the best possible results.

 

It’s important to understand that laser hair removal is different for everyone. But everyone should be prepared to get several treatments over a period of time. Hair grows in different cycles and at different rates, so one treatment won’t rid you of all your unwanted hair.
