Laser Hair Removal
in Salt Lake City

Laser hair removal is the most effective and long-lasting alternative to waxing, shaving, tweezing, and other hair removal methods. If you struggle with unwanted hair in specific parts of your body, please contact our state-of-the-art medical center for laser hair removal in Salt Lake City.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the most effective, non-invasive treatments for individuals who want to achieve permanently hair-free skin. This procedure damages the roots of the unwanted hair follicles, thus preventing hair growth from the specific region. Approximately eight sessions can help you achieve up to 90% reduction in hair, so you don’t have to worry about regular waxing and shaving!

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal involves channeling highly calibrated wavelengths of laser energy into the pigment in the hair. Once light energy is absorbed by the pigment, it transforms into heat energy and damages the unwanted hair follicles, preventing them from growing hair again. Each laser hair removal session damages a new set of hair follicles until you experience completely hair-free, smooth skin.

Laser hair removal pre-treatment guidelines

Before starting your treatment, you will need to follow these guidelines: 

  • Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanners for 3 days before the session
  • Avoid waxing and tweezing the targeted areas for 6 weeks before the session
  • Shave the treatment area approximately 24 hours before the session
  • Don’t apply any makeup or skin products the day of the session

What happens during laser hair removal?

Our Salt Lake City laser hair removal is a simple, in-office treatment that concludes within 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the treatment area. Depending on the targeted area, you will get disrobed and make yourself comfortable on the treatment chair. You will receive protective glasses to protect your eyes from laser energy. The clinicians will cleanse the treatment areas and shave off extra hairs from the region.

After your skin is prepared, the cosmetic provider will move the laser device over the targeted treatment areas. You might experience a slightly warm sensation, similar to a hot rubber snapped on your skin. Most patients say the discomfort is mild and tolerable. The laser device includes a cooling tip for comfort. After channeling laser energy into all the treatment areas, the cosmetic provider will apply a soothing gel for comfort.

Avoid the following after laser hair removal

  • Plucking, waxing, tweezing, or other hair removal methods on the treatment area
  • Strenuous activities, saunas, or anything else that may cause sweating (for 24 hours)
  • Hot water (for 24 to 48 hours)
  • Makeup and cosmetic products on the treatment area (for 24 to 48 hours)
  • Direct sun exposure (for a week)
  • Other skin treatments (for two weeks)

How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?

Each individual is different, so the number of laser hair removal sessions necessary will also depend on your hair quality. Each laser hair removal session only affects the hair follicles in the anagen phase of hair growth, i.e., the point when the hair follicles are connected to the roots. As such, you need five to nine sessions of laser hair removal to achieve up to 95% hair reduction. Your hair will grow finer and sparser with each session.
