Mardi Gras is a classic, timeless celebration that began centuries ago in Europe. As time moved forward, Mardi Gras become a day nobody would miss, one with elegant balls, carnivals, and “throws”. And today marks another treasured day of Mardi Gras!

You might be thinking, “Yes, I love Mardi Gras! So fun! But what has it got to do with laser hair removal?”

Well, I hate to disappoint you, but the two don’t have much to do with each other… except here at Totality! We are currently running a special promotion on laser hair removal with REMARKABLY low prices until the end of February… what better way to celebrate Mardi Gras than to run a HUGE sale??

Enough of the rambling, let’s get on to the content of this blog post: how does laser hair removal work?

At Totality, the Lumenis M22 is used for laser hair removal. The M22 has state-of-the-art IPL (intense pulsed light) technology to remove hair from its very core. Much like our last discussion of the M22 IPL with dark spot elimination, the IPL technology targets melanin in the hair to remove it. Very specific wavelengths of light, selected based on your skin color, hair color, and skin type, are directed onto the hair. The hair shaft absorbs the light through its melanin, and the light energy travels all the way to the hair follicle. The hair is burnt up and then naturally falls out of the skin.

VOILA! That annoying hair is gone for good.

Full disclosure: Some hairs may be stubborn and grow back after a single treatment, so it is recommended that you receive 2-3 subsequent treatments to see best results.

Happy Mardi Gras from all of us Totality!
