Laser Hair Removal

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal at Skin Med Spa uses innovative Lumenis® M22™ intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to treat more than 30 skin conditions and hair problems, including unwanted facial and body hair. 

The technology damages hair follicles to inhibit future hair growth. It can permanently get rid of hair on your:

  • Face
  • Upper lip
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Bikini area

Laser hair removal means you can avoid shaving, waxing, plucking, and electrolysis. It helps you gain confidence and improve your overall quality of life.

Is laser hair removal right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal, your Skin Med Spa specialist reviews your medical history, discusses your desired outcome, and examines your skin. Laser treatment is safe and effective for all skin and hair colors and types. 

If you desire permanent hair loss, the procedure is likely a good match for you. Laser hair removal can save you time and money in the long run.

How should I prepare for laser hair removal?

Your Skin Med Spa specialist lets you know how to prepare for laser hair removal. Protect your skin from the sun, avoid sunless tanning creams, don’t take blood-thinning medicines, and avoid waxing, plucking, and electrolysis several weeks prior to treatment. Shave the treatment area the day before your scheduled appointment.

What should I expect during laser hair removal?

During laser hair removal at Skin Med Spa, you lie down on a comfortable chair and wear special glasses to protect your eyes. Your provider can use a numbing cream to make laser treatment more comfortable.

They use a hand-held instrument to apply laser energy to your skin and damage hair follicles. The numbing cream diminishes sensations of warm pinpricks or rubber bands snapping. The procedure might last just a few minutes for small treatment areas or more than an hour.

What happens after treatment?

After a laser hair removal session, you may notice skin redness or swelling at the treatment area. Applying ice can relieve discomfort. Protect your skin from the sun and avoid tanning beds. While hair doesn’t fall out immediately, it sheds over the next few days and weeks. 

Multiple laser hair treatments offer you optimal results, as hair growth occurs in cycles. Periodic maintenance treatments help you maintain desired results for a lifetime.

Don’t settle for shaving, plucking, or waxing when laser hair removal offers you permanent results. Schedule a consultation with Skin Med Spa over the phone or online to get started today.
