I have a proven track record of extraordinary treatment results and

TREATING A HAIR AND MAKING IT FALL OUT vs .PERMANENTLY DESTROYING THE SOURCE OF GROWTH ARE NOT THE SAME.
Excellence of treatments is assured at Skinfluentials.
As an electrologists, I am licensed in permanent hair removal and that has been my business for decades. Requirements for new State licensing, Laser Electrologist, were recently completed.
I can fulfill your hair removal needs completely and most cost effectively. I will NOT treat you with IPL if you are not a good candidate. Laser and IPL Hair Removal is labeled by the FDA as "Permanent Hair Reduction" because it does not work on everyone. Electrolysis is the only licensed method and we are allowed to use the term "Permanent Hair Removal". It is universal and works on everyone. A complementary analysis and consultation will reveal your options.
Just imagine no more shaving, waxing and tweezing.
No more ingrown hairs.....just smooth skin.
Imagine hair growth issues caused by PCOS or hormones solved. We've got the solution. It is time to feel good about yourself.
With our cutting edge IPL laser hair removal you can say good bye to unwanted hair in just 4 to 8 comfortable treatments. Forget about razor burn and ingrown hairs. Skinfluentials' Laser IPL is the cure!
We have been using Intense Pulsed Light technology to permanently reduce hair growth quickly and comfortably for approximately fifteen years. IPL complements our electrolysis services. Quite often, clients need both technologies to complete the task.
IPL works by pulsing light energy into the skin. The light is absorbed by the dark pigment in the hair and at the base of the hair follicle. Once absorbed, the light is converted into thermal energy, creating heat and destroying the source of hair growth.Thus, the hair follicle can no longer grow a hair.
IPL and laser only work if your hair is dark enough, your skin light enough, proper amount of energy is applied and you adhere to the consistent scheduling of treatments. 4 - 6 weeks apart
Because of the cycles of hair growth, a series of treatments is required to totally eliminate the hair problem. Hormonally stimulated hair may require an inexpensive maintenance plan.
What you actually feel during a quality treatment is slight pressure from the hand piece as the technician holds it on your skin. The cooling tip will then chill the skin and you will feel each individual hair heating up resembling little picks. It is extremely tolerable but you must feel something.
When a hair is treated properly, there will be slight edema surrounding each hair, resembling a bug bite. The bigger the hair, the larger the reaction. The hairs will singe. We look for these signs to assure that the hair follicle has been treated with enough energy to destroy the source of growth. A certain amount of energy will cause the hairs to shed and fall out but the correct amount of energy is required to actually destroy the source of growth.
Immediate following the treatment we will apply a nice cool roller to reduce the skin reaction and to assist in healing.
For safety, comfort and efficacy, our laser utilizes a sapphire tip for contact cooling through out your treatment. This patented technology brings chilled water to the surface of the skin, lowering the temperature of the skin and allowing more energy to safely be released.
At Skinfluentials we are able to provide our clients with unbelievably comfortable, safe, effective and fast treatments. We have a proven track record of treatment results and a long list of satisfied clients.
The quality and maintenance of the equipment used and the skill of the operator in applying the laser IPL treatments has a direct effect on the results you will receive. If you don't really need laser, we can offer a cost-effective alternative.
Affordable Payment plans are available.

What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal and IPL is a procedure that uses the energy of a pulsed light to destroy the source of hair growth. It goes through the skin and is attracted to dark colored pigment. Once the energy is absorbed by the hair and follicle, a thermal reaction takes place that renders the follicle inactive.
What is the difference between laser and IPL?
Both laser and IPL create a thermal reaction within the hair follicle to destroy the source of growth. They are licensed and insured the same. How the light is delivered is what is different. They both reach the desired tissue temperature, just with a different formula.
Laser is extremely hot and very quick narrow light pulse. IPL is not as hot and released at a slower timing and a wider pulse. This makes the treatment much more comfortable and safe.
Laser has a round spot size and IPL is square and larger spot size.
Quite often clients come in who had previous treatments at a different business and think they had laser treatments. FYI, if it is a square spot size, it is IPL.
We find our IPL treatments to be extremely effective and most comfortable without the need for topical anesthetics.
Are all IPL devises the same?
No, some are more powerful than others. Our equipment is the strongest pulsed light system in the world. Our built in chiller and smooth pulsed system allows for more comfortable and more effective treatments.
Our hand pieces are replace regularly providing you with the most effective treatments possible.
Is it a one time thing?
No, laser hair removal and IPL, just like electrolysis, requires a series of treatments. Because of the various cycles of hair growth, all the hairs do not appear at the surface of the skin at the same time. It can take several months before all the hairs come to the surface of the skin to be treated for the first time.
How often do I have to come for treatments?
Because of the stages of hair growth, it is extremely important that your treatments are scheduled consistently to make sure all the hairs get treated at the new hair growth cycle.
For the face, treatments are scheduled 4 weeks apart. For the body, 6 weeks is recommended.
Can anyone have laser hair removal treatments?
NO. Laser hair removal and IPL is for selected individuals. It is effective on hair that contains dark pigment. It is not effective on white, blond, or red hair. Very dark skinned individuals are not candidates, although our IPL laser allows us to treat some darker skin toned clients. We would have to test patch you. If you also have white hair on the area to be treated, electrolysis is the only solution.
Can my eyebrows be treated with laser or ipl?
Absolutely not. We are not suppose to treat within the orbital bone area which surrounds the eye. Our hand piece is also too large to be able to do this. Although a laser's diameter can go down to the spot size of a straw, it is highly unadvisable to use it near the eye as it could cause injury. Electrology is the only way to permanently treat the eyebrow area.
I get bad ingrown hairs. Can laser IPL help?
Yes. We have had wonderful results treating ingrown hairs. IPL works great for ingrown hairs in the bikini area, neckline, under arms, face, the list is endless. After just a couple treatments, the results are fabulous. (There is a doctor who has a complete web site on ingrown hair problems. His magical cure is exactly what we do...IPL.)
Before we begin treatment, we release all ingrown hairs with a sterilized instrument. We utilize the same standards of sterilization and sanitation for our laser IPL treatments as we do for electrolysis.
What if I also have white hair on the area to be treated?
What good is the treatment if you still end up with white hairs? The only option for white hair is electrolysis. We often have clients come in and have electrolysis for the few white hairs before their laser IPL treatment.
We have also had several individuals who had laser and or IPL treatments elsewhere but were referred to us to complete the process with electrolysis.
Can the white peach fuzz on my face be treated?
In order for the light source to be attracted to it a hair, there must be dark enough pigment in hair and deeper in the hair follicle. Only electrology treatments can permanently stop light colored hairs from regrowing.With electrology, the color of the skin or hair does not matter.
The clients with skin tones and hair colors that do not qualify for laser can get permanent results with electrolysis, the universal method of hair removal that does not discriminate.
HAVING LASER IPL TREATMENTS?
Q.Why do I have to wait 6 weeks between treatments for body areas (bikini, under arm, etc.) but only 4 weeks for facial areas?
A. Hair grows faster on the face than it does on the body. Because we want to get the hairs as they are new and just emerging to the surface of the skin, four weeks is best for the face.
As for body areas, if we treated you at 4 weeks instead of 6, you would not get the best results as it takes longer for the hair to regrow on body areas. Remember, Laser and IPL needs the target to get results. The hair present in the skin is the target. Prematurely treating at only four weeks would not allow for optimum results.
Laser IPL treatment is best when the treatments are consistent to get the hair in the proper stage of growth to achieve the best results. Of course it would be more convenient if you are having facial work and body work done to do it at the same time, but the results make it worth the extra two week wait.

We know the business like no one else does Should you purchase a series of treatments, we will be here to fulfill your purchase.

Certified Laser Technician
"Our clients are loving our laser IPL equipment. I am so happy to be able to make such a difference in their lives!"~ J. Allen
"PCOS or hormonal issues? Our laser (IPL) with or without electrolysis is the Cure. A series of four to six treatments and a reasonably priced maintenance program can change your life".
What to expect:
~ Treatments are only given after the client has had a thorough consultation.
~ Because of our patented cooling and smooth pulse technology, our treatments are most comfortable and do not require any additional desensitizing agents as many traditional laser hair removal devices do.
~ You will first feel the cooling of the skin and then the application of the laser light. While pain tolerance is subjective, most clients describe the feeling as "a slight sensation of little pics". It should never be too uncomfortable.
~The area to be treated will be shaved. This allows all the energy to be directed to the hair below the skin where the source of growth is located. In 2 to 3 weeks the hairs will all fall out.
~ End ingrown hair problems
~ End the need for shaving, waxing or tweezing.
~ Hair is permanently reduced. It reduces the texture and amount of the hairs.
~ No down time.
Things to know:
~ Redness may occur, but will go away a few minutes to a few hours after treatment. After treatment instructions available.
~ If the hair problem is hormonal, an inexpensive maintenance program may be required.
~ If pregnant - no treatments. Hair removal may continue with electrolysis.
~ Positively no tanning, sun exposure or use of sunless tanning products.We recommend SPF30.
~ You may shave between treatments. No tweezing or waxing. The hair is the target. No hair = no target.
~ It is not effective on blond, white or red hair.
~ If you have black skin, you are not a candidate for laser IPL. Electrolysis would be your solution.
~ Expect an average of 4 - 6 treatments for facial hair and 6 - 8 treatments for body parts.
How do I prepare for Laser IPL Hair Removal?
~ Do not wax, tweeze, or epilate for 4 weeks before first treatment. You may shave or trim with scissors.
~ Positively no tanning for 4 to 6 weeks before treatments. Recent sun exposure may delay treatments.
~ No sunless tan
~ Do use anSPF30 or greater.
~ If you have a history of herpes I or herpes II genitalia, prior to laser hair removal, prophylactic antiviral therapy is required.
I began IPL treatments with June almost a year and a half ago. All my
life I have suffered with skin irritation, ingrown hairs, stubble,
rashes and hives from shaving. I have always hated to wear shorts or a
bathing suit. I had coarse,
dark hair everywhere from the waist down. The treatments have made a
huge difference. I have never had soft skin before. This is a miracle!
Now I can quickly throw on a bathing suit without having to shave and
have bleeding, rashy legs. I highly recommend
IPL treatments. June is wonderful and the difference is life changing!
While going through pre-menopause, my face began to grow facial hair. I was a HOT MESS! After going to Skinfluentials for laser hair removal treatments, I am no longer a hot mess, now I am just HOT!
Thank you June Allen, owner and laser hair removal goddess!!! ~ Ana
I have been a client of June's for years and want to give a big THANK YOU for starting to offer IPL hair removal. I had tried electrolysis - it worked quite well but nothing compared to the results I have gotten with IPL. After just two treatments, I saw a huge difference...my hair was much finer and I saw less regrowth after just a few treatments. I have had my arms, underarms, and bikini area treated and it is amazing! It is not uncomfortable at all to have done, does not take a lot of time, and is affordable. I tell everyone about it! I am so grateful to not have to shave every day - I have dark, thick hair and always got a rash after shaving. After just one treatment of IPL, I no longer got a rash which was worth it to me! June and her staff are wonderful and I am grateful for the services that they offer and for their professionalism. Thanks so much!
Laser light has been a great experience for me with remarkable results. June is wonderful and makes you feel very comfortable during the procedure. What a great investment!!!
The laser hair removal treatments at Skinfluentials exceeded my hopes and expectations! The treatments were effective, affordable, and virtually pain-free! I am very pleased with the results, and I would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone looking for an alternative to the daily chore of shaving or for those looking to get rid of hair in those unwanted places.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! This will be the first summer that I will not have to worry about any of my excess hair! You and your magical light machine have worked better than I could have ever dreamed! When you did the light treatment on my upper lip and facial hair, I couldn't believe the results! For years, I have suffered through bleaching and waxing, only to have to do it again and again. Once you did the light treatment on me, the results were incredible! What's even better is that I don't have to worry about razor stubble and the unsightly red bumps from shaving my underarms and bikini line! I can honestly say that I won't be worried about facial hair, my underarms, or my bikini line ever again!
P.S. - My sister was so impressed that she has started the light treatment with you as well and her husband wants it done on the back of his neck so that his dress shirts won't irritate the ingrown hairs.
I just wanted to tell you how wonderful it is to get a little time back out of my days, thanks to the IPL treatments you have given me. With a growing family, I really don't have time to spend in the shower shaving! I now have more time for more important things - like the kids! Thank you for making it affordable with such a reasonable payment plan also!
I just want to thank you so much for my laser light hair removal treatments on my bikini line. I have such sensitive Irish skin that every thing irritates it and shaving was worse. I would have such bad razor bumps and ingrown hairs, it was embarrassing. Now I have no bumps or ingrown hairs. Thank you so much. You have boosted my beach confidence and made me feel a whole lot better. Thank you!!!
When considering light-based hair removal, Skinfluentials recommends the following tips:
- Seek out a licensed professional with appropriate training. Electrologists are now licensed for laser hair removal and electrology.
- Ask about the number of hair removal cases they have performed. It is the skill of the operator that determines the success of the treatments.
- Ensure they are available for follow-up care and treatments. How long have they been offering these services? Will they still be available to complete your series of treatments when their laser lease or office lease expires? Some providers lease the equipment for a limited time and often opt to not renew the lease when it expires, leaving the patient/clients without treatment availability.
- Make sure treatment is administered in a clean, private, ventilated and professional setting.
- Expect a thorough consultation with the licensed professional detailing how it works, what you can expect from treatments, determining how suitable you are for safe and successful treatments, and what the cost will be.
- If your skin tone is on the darker side, expect a test patch to be performed. A maintenance program should be available.
