What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a nonsurgical treatment that removes unwanted hair by heating individual hair follicles with laser energy, disabling the follicles and causing existing hair to fall out. Multiple treatment sessions are necessary to achieve the smoothest results because each session only targets follicles in their current growth cycle.*
Your Laser Hair Removal Consultation
Before starting laser hair removal treatments, you’ll have a private consultation with one of our Aesthetic Nurses. During your consultation, you can discuss your cosmetic goals as well as learn more about what to expect from laser hair removal. Some of the most common treatment areas for laser hair removal include the underarms, bikini area, legs, arms, chest, back and upper lip. However, laser hair removal can be safely performed almost anywhere on the face or body.*
Your Aesthetic Nurse may also have additional recommendations for helping you achieve your goals. Our menu of skincare services includes facial and body waxing for those looking for an alternate method of hair removal.
Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Your laser hair removal treatment session can be as short as 15 minutes or up to 1 hour, depending on the size of the treated area. During your treatment, your Aesthetic Nurse will apply the handpiece to your skin, emitting laser energy to attack hair follicles. You may feel slight zapping sensations, a bit like being snapped with a rubber band, but most people don’t find the procedure painful.*
Your Recovery & Results
Laser hair removal requires no downtime, and you may return to your normal routine as soon as you leave our office. You should avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight for 2 to 4 weeks before and after each treatment. Refrain from plucking or waxing the treatment area between sessions, but you can resume shaving as normal after the first 3 days. Some people develop temporary redness immediately following a treatment, but these side effects should fade within about 1 week.*
After 1 to 2 weeks, you should notice hair in the treated area beginning to fall out. Before this phase, the hair may appear to grow longer, but this effect is temporary. You’ll need several sessions in order to significantly reduce the amount of hair growth. Most people have anywhere from 4 to 8 treatment sessions, depending on the amount of existing hair.*
