Laser Hair Removal Q&A

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses heat energy to destroy hair follicles so they can no longer produce hair. You’re left with smooth skin and without the hassle of shaving, waxing, or other hair-removal products. 

During the treatment, your provider uses a wand to direct laser energy to predetermined treatment areas. The energy passes through your outer layer of skin, causing no damage, and goes right to the pigment in hair follicles. The hair follicles heat up so much that they can no longer grow hair. 

What areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is effective in just about any area where you have unwanted hair, including the:

  • Chest and back
  • Neck
  • Legs and arms 
  • Bikini line
  • Underarms
  • Upper lip and chin

Men and women choose laser hair removal for its convenience and ease. 

What happens during a laser hair removal appointment?

Your entire appointment lasts between five minutes and an hour, depending on how much of your body you’re treating. Most people achieve their desired results within five to seven sessions; your exact results depend on the density and type of your hair. 

Laser hair removal is effective on most skin types and tones. Your provider cleanses the treatment area, but no anesthetic is necessary.

During the session, you may feel tingling like a rubber band snapping against your skin. The laser device also releases bursts of cool air to keep your skin from overheating. 

Following treatment, you can go back to all normal activities. It’s normal to have some redness and swelling in the treated areas, but this usually resolves within the day. 

How do I prepare for laser hair removal?

You don’t need to take any special steps before laser hair removal, but avoiding sun exposure for two weeks before your appointment is advisable. A tan can make it harder for the laser to detect the pigment in your hair follicles. 

You should also avoid the sun for a few weeks after laser treatment. Your skin is especially sensitive and more vulnerable to burning.
