Laser hair removal: what to expect

After a thorough skin examination and consultation with your skin care professional, a laser hair removal treatment plan will be developed and an appointment will be scheduled. Before the procedure begins, you will be comfortably seated in our on-site procedure room and provided protective eye gear. The unwanted hair will then be trimmed to a few millimeters and a cool gel (or cooling device) will be used in conjunction with the laser.

The purpose of the gel/cooling device is to make the treatment more comfortable and efficient. Then the laser light will be applied to the desired area, which works to specifically target and eliminate hair follicles without damaging or disturbing the surrounding skin cells. Treatments may take 30 – 60 minutes.

Laser hair removal results

Once the laser hair removal treatment is complete, an ice-pack or cooling agent will be applied to the treatment area. Depending on the amount of hair and area being treated, 3 – 8 sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results. Typically, sessions are scheduled 4 – 8 weeks apart. Your skin care professional will provide you with detailed information about post-treatment care. Since laser hair removal is a nonsurgical treatment, patients will be free to return to their normal activities almost immediately after treatment.
