Achieve permanently smooth, hair-free skin

Shaving, waxing, and plucking are the traditional methods of hair removal. None of these methods are permanent. With laser hair removal in Fort Collins, you can achieve permanently smooth, hair-free skin, liberating yourself from a lifetime of hair removal and maintenance. Genesis Lifestyle Medicine uses cutting-edge laser technologies to zap away the unwanted hair from your body without harsh side effects or downtime.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive technique wherein laser energy is used to zap away unwanted body hair. This treatment allows you to achieve smooth, hair-free skin without worrying about shaving or waxing. The laser technician or cosmetic provider runs the laser device on your skin to deliver laser energy into the unwanted hair follicles. The laser energy “deactivates” the unwanted hair follicles, stopping hair growth permanently.

No more razor burns or waxing pains

Shaving, waxing, and tweezing are extremely temporary and often painful methods of hair removal. Shaving must be done every couple of days, and it can lead to severe razor burns; waxing and plucking need to be repeated with less frequency, but they’re also more painful. Laser hair removal is the only technique capable of giving you permanently smooth skin without harsh side effects, burns, or other problems. What’s not to love?

How does laser hair removal work?

During your laser hair removal in Fort Collins, a specialized laser device is held against your skin to deliver calibrated wavelengths of light energy into the unwanted hair follicles. The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser energy, wherein it converts into thermal energy. The thermal energy goes down the follicle and destroys the unwanted hair’s root, stopping future hair growth. You need a series of 5 or 6 treatments to achieve completely hair-free skin.

The benefits of laser hair removal:

  • Non-invasive treatment
  • No harsh side effects or complications
  • Concludes within 15 to 30 minutes
  • No razor burns or waxing pain
  • Produces permanent results
  • Achieve permanently smooth skin
  • No downtime or recovery period

Side effects of laser hair removal

Laser hair removal doesn’t cause harsh side effects. You may experience mild redness, tenderness, and soreness on the treatment areas for a few days, but you can resume your daily activities immediately. Laser hair removal leads to photosensitivity for a few days, so you should avoid direct sunlight, hot showers, and tanning beds. We’ll provide a detailed overview of post-treatment guidelines to ensure optimal recovery.

What can I expect from laser hair removal?

During your laser hair removal in Fort Collins, you will be guided into a private treatment room, where you’ll be left alone to undress if the treatment area is covered by clothing. You can lie down on a comfortable reclining chair. Our cosmetic provider will offer eyeglasses to protect your eyes from laser energy. Furthermore, your skin will be cleansed, and we may apply a numbing gel to ensure a comfortable experience.

During the laser hair removal session, the cosmetic provider will move the laser device along your skin. Most patients compare the sensation of laser energy to a hot rubber band snap. You may experience mild discomfort, but it’s completely tolerable for most patients. Our laser device contains cooling tips that soothe your skin and prevent harsh side effects. The treatment should conclude within a few minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?

Most patients need 5 to 6 laser hair removal sessions for optimal results. After each session, your hair will grow out thinner and sparser than before. It takes around 5 to 6 cycles of the treatment to remove up to 95% of the unwanted hair from the targeted area. You need multiple sessions because laser hair removal can only target the hair follicles in the anagen phase of growth, which is approximately 20% of your hair follicles at any point.
