Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal at Celebrity Medi Spa is an innovative way to get rid of unwanted body hair, so you don’t have to worry about waxing, plucking, shaving, or skin irritation from razors. Hair removal lasers apply a concentrated light beam to skin that gets absorbed by hair pigment.
Light energy is then converted to heat and damages hair follicles, which delays or inhibits future hair growth. Laser hair removal is often most effective for people with light skin and dark-colored hair, but just about anyone can benefit from it. It’s used safely and effectively to remove hair on your:
- Bikini area
- Upper lip and chin
Laser hair removal works on just about any area of your body, except your eyelids and surrounding tissues.
What should I expect during treatment?
Before laser hair removal treatment, a practitioner at Celebrity Medi Spa reviews your health history and completes an evaluation to make sure you’re a good candidate for the procedure. If so, they apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to make treatment feel comfortable. You’ll wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser.
They use a gel to protect your skin and apply a handheld laser to it. As laser beams penetrate hair follicles, you might feel warm pinpricks and cooling sensations from the gel or the laser’s cooling device.
Your treatment might last just a few minutes for smaller areas, such as your upper lip, or more than an hour for larger body parts. For best results, you might require a series of 2-6 treatments scheduled 4-16 weeks apart, depending on the areas treated.
What happens after laser hair removal?
After the procedure, you might experience swelling and redness at the affected area for a few hours. Apply ice to your skin as needed to reduce discomfort. You’ll notice hair shedding over a period of several days to several weeks after treatment.
Avoid sun and tanning bed exposure as directed by your provider, and use broad-spectrum sunscreen regularly to protect your skin.
Laser hair removal delays hair growth for long time periods but might not result in permanent hair removal. You may require multiple treatments to maximize results. If hair does eventually grow back, it’s usually less dense, finer, and lighter in color.
