3 Laser Hair Removal FAQs

What Does Laser Hair Removal Entail?

laser hair removalThe lasers in this procedure emit a unique wavelength of light absorbed only by hair follicles, not your skin. This light damages the root of each hair, inhibiting future growth. Before treatment, your hair will be trimmed, and you will be given goggles to protect your eyes. Next, the clinician will press a small handheld instrument against your skin, activate the laser in pulses, and move it throughout the hair removal area.

Does It Hurt?

Some people report that laser hair removal feels like a rubber band being snapped against the skin. To limit your discomfort, technicians can apply a numbing cream to your skin’s surface. After the procedure, the skin may be slightly red and swollen, but this effect is temporary and can be alleviated with ice.

What Can I Expect Afterward?

Laser hair removal is incredibly effective. After just a few sessions, patients will enjoy permanently smooth results.
