Laser Hair Removal at Genesis Lifestyle Medicine

Laser hair removal is an excellent alternative to shaving, tweezing, and/or waxing — especially if you struggle with excessive body hair. Our laser hair removal services are fast and effective.

What is laser hair removal?

One of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the world, laser hair removal reduces unwanted body hair without causing any damage the surrounding skin. The treatment utilizes safe, precise lasers that damage the hair follicles to prevent them from growing hair.

How laser hair removal works

Laser hair removal works by harnessing the abilities of laser light energy. The laser delivers a powerful light that is absorbed by pigment in the hair. This converts the light energy into heat, which damages the hair follicles and prevents them from being able to grow hair anymore. Your hair won’t fall out immediately, but it will after a multiple treatments — typically about five.

Key benefits of laser hair removal

Laser hair removal treatment details

Before appointment

  • Avoid sun exposure for three days before your appointment.
  • For six weeks prior to your appointment, do not tweeze or wax any hair in the area that will be treated.
  • Shave within 24 hours to three days of your appointment using a clean, brand-new razor.

During appointment

  • Depending on the area you’re having treated, you will get undressed.
  • You will make yourself comfortable on a medical chair.
  • You will be provided protective glasses to protect your eyes from the laser beam.
  • The area to be treated will be cleansed with wipes.
  • Any extra hairs will be shaved.
  • The lasering will begin. Your technician will make sure you’re feeling okay as they work.  

Many patients describe the sensation of getting laser hair removal as feeling like a hot rubber band being snapped on their skin, or tiny pin prick. The feeling isn’t exactly comfortable, but any pain is minimal and very tolerable. Many lasers also emit a cooling effect to help with discomfort. 


After your laser hair removal treatment, we recommend using aloe vera on any areas that may feel hot. There are a few things you should avoid to heal properly and get the best results. The things that you should avoid include:

  • Extended sun exposure (for a week after treatment)
  • Anything that will cause you to sweat, such as exercise, saunas, baths, etc. (for 24 hours after treatment)
  • Plucking, tweezing, or waxing out any hairs that you see.
  • Other skin treatments (for two weeks after treatment)
  • Puncturing the skin in any way 
  • Hot water (for at least 24 to 48 hours after treatment)
  • Makeup or perfume near the treated area (for at least 24 to 48 hours after treatment)

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Every individual is different. We all have different levels of hair thickness and amount, and the type of skin you have will also play a part in how the treatment works. In general, you can expect multiple laser hair removal treatments to result in 90% to 95% hair loss.

As the hair follicles are damaged, your hair will “shed out” and grow back finer and finer until it’s essentially gone. Once this happens, most patients only need to return every two or three years for a touch-up.
