Laser Hair Removal Q&A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is the process of removing or greatly reducing your body hair using a medical-grade laser light device. Medical-grade lasers deliver light in specific wavelengths that target and enter your follicles, which then heat the follicles to cause them to stop growing hair. Simultaneously, the heat vaporizes the existing hair.
Right before your laser hair removal treatment sessions at Laser Vein MedSpa, the team applies a topical numbing medicine across the treatment area you’re targeting. The laser’s heat can burn or sting, but the numbing medicine helps keep you comfortable throughout the process.
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
If you’re already one to remove your body hair, you’re probably accustomed to shaving at least once a week or going in for a wax every so often. You might even pluck the hairs from certain areas individually. Laser hair removal has arguably fewer setbacks than these other options and offers notable benefits, such as:
- Versatility - you can remove your body hair from anywhere
- Predictability - after your first few sessions, you’ll know how much hair removal to expect
- Precision - laser hair removal targets the hairs and follicles only, not the surrounding skin
- Speed - each laser pulse is only a partial second long, making for quick treatments
- Permanence - laser hair removal permanently reduces body hair growth
Before you start your first laser hair removal session, you can discuss the treatment with the team and decide which areas to target. It can be hard to tell how many sessions you’ll need initially, but most laser hair removals work best on darker and coarser hair against a lighter skin tone.
How long does laser hair removal take?
You can expect to come in for a series of initial laser hair removal sessions at Laser Vein MedSpa after your consultation. Depending on the type of laser the team decides to use, and depending on other factors like the density of your body hair, you’ll need 2-6 laser hair removal treatments across each of the areas you choose to target.
For several months or even years, the treated areas will remain hairless after your first 2-6 laser hair removal sessions. Eventually, you may see some light and fine hair regrowth in those areas. When this happens, you’re welcome to come back to Laser Vein MedSpa for a touch-up laser hair removal appointment.
