What is the Procedure Like?
A laser hair removal procedure at our state-of-the-art facility is simple. You will lie back in a chair as we move the laser over the treatment area. Patients may feel a slight pinch and then a comforting cooling sensation, thanks to the sapphire cooling technology. The duration of any session depends on the size of the treatment area. For example, laser hair therapy addressing the upper lip may take only a minute or two. Treating the underarms takes about 10 minutes, while the legs take approximately 30 minutes.
What Happens after Treatment?
Patients may notice swelling and redness immediately after a laser hair removal session. This should subside within a few hours. About a week after a session, patients may notice what appears to be hair regrowth, but this is actually hair shedding. You can leave the hair alone or shave at this time, but you should not wax or pluck the hairs.
Some patients may experience skin irritation and pigment changes following a session, but these side effects will gradually subside. In the meantime, patients should apply sunscreen to the treated areas or cover them with clothing to reduce the risk of sunburn.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Most patients need three to six sessions in order to achieve their desired result. The number of sessions you will need depends on the thickness of your hair, the treatment area, and stage of hair growth at the time of treatment. Sessions are typically scheduled four to six weeks apart since laser hair removal targets hairs in the growth phase.
