The laser hair removal procedure generally requires anywhere from a few minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the size of the treated area. During the procedure, one of our estheticians will apply an advanced, safe, hand-held laser to the skin. The laser produces heat that damages the patient’s hair follicles, where hair growth originates. This damage inhibits hair growth. For best results, patients should undergo several treatments spaced several months apart.
After laser hair removal, no medications or bandages are necessary. Patients may experience some swelling, redness, or discomfort for the first few hours, but these effects typically fade in the first two days. Laser hair removal patients should not pick at the treated skin after the procedure. In addition, laser hair removal patients should not wax or pluck hairs between treatments and should avoid sun exposure (or tanning booths) for several weeks. contact our office for more information and pricing.
