Laser Hair Removal: What to Expect

It’s time to put down the shaving and waxing for good and explore what laser hair removal has to offer you. Laser hair removal is a state-of-the-art procedure that can give you long-lasting results without the hassle and pain of shaving and waxing. Here is what you can expect from laser hair removal:

How Laser Hair Removal Works

As you might have guessed, laser hair removal uses laser technology to get rid of unwanted hair. This treatment works by passing laser energy over your treatment area; the energy is absorbed by the follicles of your hair. The laser energy disables the hair follicle, rendering it useless before it falls out. Unknown to some, our hair grows in cycles at different times, so multiple treatments are typically required for maximum results. The number of treatments needed depends on the area being treated; areas that are denser with hair, such as men’s backs, require more treatments than areas with finer hair, such as the upper lips.

A Non-Invasive Treatment

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment, meaning nothing breaks the patient’s skin. Our patients will remain pain-free during the treatment without the use of any kind of anesthesia.

What to Expect After Laser Hair Removal

Our patients will begin to see results immediately following their laser hair removal. Some patients may experience redness or swelling around the treatment area for up to 24 hours before fading. We make sure our patients receive a special skincare line that will help soften their skin after each treatment.

The best part about laser hair removal is that you can return to your everyday activities immediately following the treatment. The rarest of complications and risks can include blistering, extensive redness, and scarring. Our technicians have years of experience and use only the best equipment to reduce any chance of skin complications. By choosing laser hair removal, you are saving yourself thousands of dollars that would have been used for future shaving and waxing.
