LASER HAIR REMOVAL QUESTIONS
What can I expect during laser hair removal treatment?
Treatments take place in your practitioner’s office. Your practitioner will use a small handpiece to deliver an intense but gentle burst of energy onto targeted areas of the skin. Therapeutic heat then safely and effectively removes unwanted hair.
Is Laser Hair Removal safe for darker skin tones?
Yes! Other laser hair removal treatments don’t cater to all skin types, but there’s a Gentle Hair Removal treatment that’s right for you, no matter what your skin tone. Check out the infographic below to learn what your skin type is, and talk to your practitioner about which Gentle treatment is right for you.
How long does a Laser Hair Removal treatment take?
A treatment can take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the treatment area and the condition being treated. Both legs can often be treated in as few as 15 minutes, as can an average-sized man’s back.
Is Laser Hair Removal removal painful?
Some patients may feel slight discomfort, which has been compared to snapping a rubber band against the skin. This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimized by our patented Dynamic Cooling Device. Be sure and feel free to consult talk this over with your practitioner.
How many treatments will I need?
Multiple treatments are required to achieve the full hair removal effect. That’s because hair grows in the three stages mentioned above:
- Anagen (the growth stage): Hair is thickest and darkest, so laser treatments are most effective.
2. Catagen (the transitional stage): The hair begins to loosen from its follicle.
3. Telogen (the shedding stage): The hair falls out to make room for new growth.
The hairs on your body are not always at the same stage, so you’ll need to undergo a few treatments, an average of six weeks apart, to catch them all in the growth stage.
How do I prepare for a Laser Hair Removal treatment?
For about six weeks prior to treatment, you should avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing. On the day of your treatment, skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed of any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products. Apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above) before your treatment.
Do not expose the treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light prior to or immediately after treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, a prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed.
What can I expect after treatment?
A cool compress or gel pack may be applied for additional comfort after your treatment. Any redness or swelling should resolve in a few hours.
What precautions should I take after treatment?
After your laser treatment, prevent sun exposure by applying sunblock (SPF 30 or above). In the first few days after treatment, don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers. Your practitioner may advise additional precautions.
Are there side effects?
Permanent side effects are rare and may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (laser bruise) in the treated area—these usually do not last more than a few days. Your practitioner will have more information about potential side effects.
Are these treatments covered by insurance?
Most insurance companies do not offer reimbursement for cosmetic procedures. Consult your insurance carrier for conclusive information.
What is laser hair removal?
What to expect from laser hair removal?
You can expect some slight discomfort similar to a pinch or elastic band slap. The laser delivers a cryogen spray to help cool and protect the top layer of your skin. You can expect a 25% hair reduction in the treated area, and after each treatment, it takes longer to grow back and the hairs will be finer. After the treatment, you can have possible redness and swelling which doesn’t last long after the treatment is performed.
