Is Laser Hair Removal Right for You?

Laser hair removal allows you the freedom to stop shaving, waxing, plucking and pulling unwanted hair from your body. Laser hair removal is appropriate for men or women and most parts of the body. The procedure works best on patients with naturally dark, coarse hair and usually do not work with very light, or fine hair. Regardless of whether unwanted hair is due to a personal preference or is a source of shame, let Essentials Medispa and Salon help eradicate your unwanted hair!

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is the process of using a pulsating laser beam to remove hair from your body permanently. It is non-invasive and performed by a licensed skin care expert. It is entirely safe for any healthy adult and is successfully on many areas of the body.

What parts of the body can be treated?

Extra Small Area: Upper lip, chin, sideburns, cheeks, areolas, nose, forehead, hands, eyebrows, feet or ears
Small Area: Underarms, bikini line, happy trail, upper lip and chin, inner or outer thigh, jawline, upper or lower arms, or two extra small areas combined
Medium Area: Brazilian, buttocks, upper back, upper legs, lower legs, back neck, front neck, upper chest, full face, full arms or two small areas combined
Large Area: Full legs, full front, full back, or medium and small area combined

How does laser hair removal work?

During your procedure, our staff will hold a wand on your skin which contains a laser. When initiated, that laser beam will pass through your skin to the hair follicles. The light from the laser is absorbed by the melanin (or pigment) in the hair and converted to heat which damages the hair follicles. This damage makes future hair growth from that follicle difficult or impossible thereby leaving you hair free in that area. Although the procedure may sound painful, it is not. There may be some minor discomfort during the process which you should indicate to your skin care specialist.

What happens after the procedure?

Redness or swelling of the treated area may be noticeable for the first few hours after the procedure. Ice or cooling gels may be recommended immediately after laser hair removal to reduce pain. Over the next days and weeks, you will begin to shed the hair from the treated area. Since hair has four stages of the growth cycle, you will need subsequent treatments to make sure you have addressed hair in each stage. Typically, a series of two to six treatments are required based upon the location of the area being treated.

What are the risks of laser hair removal?

The risks vary based upon skin type, hair color, treatment plan and adherence to pre-treatment and post-treatment care. The most common side effects include temporary discomfort, redness, swelling, skin irritation, changes in the pigment of the affected area. In rare cases, laser hair removal can cause blistering, crusting, scarring or excessive hair growth around the treated areas. Laser hair removal should never be performed on eyelids, eyebrows or surrounding areas as the laser beam could cause severe eye injury. (1)

Laser Hair Removal During Summer

The summer is full of sunshine and fun activities, finding many people at the beach, pool, and other outdoor locations. Unfortunately for some of us, the summer season also consists of shaving and waxing more often to prepare for these gatherings. Both women and men shave or wax to eliminate hair under the arms, around the bikini line, on the back, and in other visible areas to make sure we’re looking our absolute best in that new swimsuit. Shaving every few days and making regular waxing appointments can be exhausting, which is why so many people are turning to laser hair removal to keep themselves smooth and hairless during the summer months.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is an effective solution for permanent hair removal. This advanced treatment uses gentle and precise laser energy to target and eliminate hair follicles in even the most sensitive areas. It can be used on the face, the bikini line, and any other area where a patient would like to eliminate hair. With laser hair removal, patients can achieve long-lasting results that eliminate the need to ever wax, pluck, or shave again.

When to Get Laser Hair Removal

Many people want to achieve permanent hair removal for the spring and summer months when they are frequently in a bathing suit or vacationing. This means that you need to plan ahead with your laser hair removal treatments. In most cases, patients will need up to 6 treatments (4-6 weeks apart) to completely remove hair in the targeted areas. Patients often schedule their first appointment months ahead to give them enough time to obtain their desired results. Additionally, laser hair removal treatments can make the skin sensitive immediately after treatment. This means patients will have to limit sun exposure as the skin recovers. It is best to begin your laser hair removal treatment towards the end of summer or early fall to make sure you are ready to rock by the time spring rolls around.
