Achieve smooth, hair-free skin

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated light beams to target and destroy hair follicles, inhibiting future hair growth. This treatment is highly effective for reducing unwanted hair on various body areas, including the face, legs, arms, back, and bikini line. The laser emits a light absorbed by the pigment in the hair, which then damages the follicle to prevent regrowth. With multiple sessions, laser hair removal offers long-lasting results, making it a popular choice for those seeking smooth, hair-free skin.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal operates by emitting concentrated light that targets the pigment (melanin) in hair follicles. The laser's light energy converts to heat, effectively damaging the follicles without harming the surrounding skin. This damage inhibits the follicle's ability to produce new hair. The laser precisely matches the wavelength and pulse duration to maximize the effect on the hair follicle while minimizing skin damage. Multiple sessions are required because hair grows in cycles, and the laser is most effective during the active growth phase (anagen).

Benefits of laser hair removal:

  • Significantly reduces hair growth with lasting effects after multiple sessions
  • Targets dark, coarse hairs without damaging the surrounding skin
  • Effective for various body areas, including the face, legs, arms, and bikini line
  • Minimizes the occurrence of ingrown hairs compared to traditional hair removal methods
  • Saves time and effort in comparison to regular shaving or waxing
  • Non-invasive with minimal side effects and no downtime

Laser hair removal treatment details

Treatment

During your laser hair removal treatment, you will lie comfortably while the technician applies a cooling gel to the target area. You and the technician will wear protective eyewear. The laser device will be adjusted to suit your skin type and hair color. As the laser is activated, you may feel mild discomfort, like a warm pinprick or rubber band snap. The session typically lasts from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area's size.

Recovery

After your laser hair removal treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling, similar to a sunburn, which usually subsides within a few hours. Applying ice packs or aloe vera gel can help soothe the skin. Avoid direct sunlight and use sunscreen to protect the treated area. You can resume normal activities immediately, as no downtime is required. Some hairs may shed over the next few weeks, and multiple sessions will be needed for optimal results.

Results

You will begin to see results after your first laser hair removal session, with noticeable hair reduction in the treated area. Optimal results typically require 6 to 8 sessions, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, to target hair in different growth cycles. The treated area will have significantly less hair, and any regrowth will be finer and lighter. The results can last for months to years, with occasional maintenance sessions needed to maintain smooth, hair-free skin.

Laser hair removal FAQs

Does laser hair removal hurt?

You may experience mild discomfort during the treatment, often described as a warm pinprick or the snap of a rubber band. Cooling gels and built-in cooling devices help alleviate discomfort.

How many sessions will I need?

Most people require 6 to 8 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. The exact number depends on factors like hair color, skin type, and the treatment area.

Can I shave between sessions?

Yes, you can shave between sessions. However, avoid waxing or plucking, as these methods remove the hair follicle, which is necessary for the laser to work effectively.

Are the results permanent?

Laser hair removal provides long-lasting results, with many experiencing permanent hair reduction. Occasional maintenance may be needed to maintain the desired level of reduction.

What should I do before my treatment?

Avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least two weeks before your session. Shave the treatment area a day or two before your appointment, but do not wax or pluck the hair.
