Removing Unwanted Hair

Hair removal can be a time consuming and seemingly endless process. You get a treatment done today, and before you know it, it's time to schedule your hair removal procedure again.

Hair can grow back so quickly, and the only way to ensure you don't have to deal with unwanted body hair, is to prevent hair regrowth for as long as possible. This is where we come in with laser hair removal in Henderson at Genesis Lifestyle Medicine.

What is laser hair removal?

Known for being one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available, laser hair removal uses the power of laser heat to destroy hair follicles, thereby preventing hair from regrowing. Once you undergo the treatment, you won’t have to worry about bi-monthly visits to the salon.

At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine in Henderson, we specialize in laser hair removal. Visit us today for treatment.

The science behind laser hair removal

Laser hair removal leverages heat energy to destroy hair follicles. These follicles are the roots of the hair. When we use traditional hair removal techniques like shaving, waxing, tweezing, and epilating, we only get rid of the hair and not the follicle, allowing new hair to replace the old.

Laser heat, when targeted towards the hair follicle, will permeate and destroy the follicles. This ensures that there are no roots left from where the hair can regrow. Laser hair removal specifically works on the science called selective photothermolysis, where specific areas of the skin or specific tissues can be targeted using special laser wavelengths. The laser technology ensures that only the targeted areas get affected by the laser heat, while the surrounding tissues remain unaffected. 

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal is a really effective procedure that offers a near-permanent solution to unwanted body hair. The heat energy destroys the hair follicles, ensuring those hair follicles cease to work. This leads to a near-permanent stoppage in body hair growth.

But, if the laser heat has only partially-damaged the hair follicle, it can heal in a few years and regrow hair. At our Henderson facility, we administer the laser hair removal treatment very carefully, ensuring all of the hair follicles on the treatment site are targeted and destroyed.

Ideal candidates for laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is right for you if: 

  • You are self-conscious about body hair.
  • You would like to get rid of unwanted facial hair.
  • You want to address hair on your bikini line.
  • You suffer from unwanted hair on your legs, arm, or back.
  • You want to spend less time, money & energy on traditional hair removal treatments. 

Laser hair removal works better on hair that has more melanin pigment. This is because the laser wavelengths used are more easily absorbable by darker and coarser hair. But this doesn't mean that lighter hair (red, blonde, white, grey) can't be treated using a laser. If your light hair contains darker melanin pigments, this is a great option for you.

What is the treatment process for laser hair removal?

When you visit our Henderson location, we start the procedure by administering localized numbing. This reduces any discomfort you may experience when the laser beams reach your skin. Then, laser waves are slowly focused on the treatment site while the heat destroys the hair follicles. 

The procedure can take about 45-60 minutes to complete. The laser technology simultaneously heats and cools your skin, ensuring that the skin remains at the right temperature and you don’t experience any burns. 

Once the treatment is complete, we apply a soothing gel to reduce any minor swelling, soreness, and burning you may experience at the treatment site. You can immediately return to work after the treatment. 

Skincare tips post-treatment

  • Don’t expose your skin to the sun for at least 7-10 days after the procedure. 
  • Moisturize regularly to hydrate and soothe your skin. 
  • Avoid applying makeup to the treatment area for 1-2 days and afterward choose cosmetics that aren’t abrasive. 
  • Postpone all cosmetic procedures (chemical peels, laser treatments, etc.) for a month after the hair removal. 
  • Don’t shave, wax, or tweeze, so as to avoid infection. Allow the treatment to run its course.

We will provide follow-up checks and maintenance treatments as part of the usual procedure.
