Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a great option for both men and women. It can remove unwanted hair for good, saving time and money. You can also save yourself the painful removal process and those pesky ingrown hairs that can cause pain for days to weeks. The treatment uses laser light beams to prevent future hair growth. You can get a variety of areas treated, including your chin, underarms, bikini area, lips, and face.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is performed using concentrated light to affect your hair follicles. The follicle absorbs the laser and vaporizes immediately. In addition, the laser is attracted to the hair's melanin, so the darker the hair, the more effective the treatment is. The Lutronic Clarity II is a higher-powered dual wavelength platform laser with breakthrough intelligent capabilities, which translate to faster hair removal treatments.

The procedure is relatively fast, depending on how large the area is treated. You will experience minimal to no pain, as it is often described as somewhere between the pain you feel shaving and getting a wax. One of the most significant benefits of laser hair removal is that you can get it anywhere on your body where you have unwanted hair.

Why Get a Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

People spend hundreds to thousands of dollars annually on hair removal. While there are many options to remove unwanted hair from your body, most are ineffective and pricey. Shaving is quick and easy, but the hair often grows back quickly. The price of shavers and shaving cream is high, and the results could be better. Creams that wipe away hair are a little more practical but often smell horrible and burn. Waxing or sugaring is a little more long-lasting but can be painful. And it's super itchy once the hair returns. The most cost-effective option that provides excellent results is laser hair removal. There are several benefits to laser hair removal that can save you time and money, and you'll feel much less pain than you would getting a wax every three to four weeks.

Who is a Good Candidate?

When it comes to laser hair removal, the color of your hair matters. For those who have dark hair to remove, you are the perfect candidate. This is because pigment attracts the laser. It's important to remember that this is not referencing your skin tone. It's the color of your actual hair that matters most.

Generally, you are the ideal candidate if your skin is light and your hair is dark. However, hair removal lasers from Lutronic treat most hair types. If you have darker skin, the laser settings will be adjusted to protect your skin. If your hair is light, it may take more treatments. Our technicians will optimize the treatment settings tailored for you.

Steps to Prepare

While there are some simple steps to prepare, contact the office where you are getting the laser hair removal done. They will be able to provide you with their specific preparation steps so you're ready to go on the day of your appointment. Below you will find some of the common steps to prepare for your first visit.

  • Avoid skin irritation and stay out of the sun for a few days before the procedure.
  • No waxing or plucking before your visit.
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin.

Recovery Time For Laser Hair Removal

Recovering from laser hair removal is easy. Most patients return to their regular daily activities when they leave the appointment. Many people worry that the process is going to be painful. However, patients often report little to no discomfort during the treatment. Laser hair removal is also swift, as a full-face appointment can be as short as twenty minutes.

You will see a reduced amount of hair in the treated area immediately. Treatments take about 6-8 weeks and are a permanent solution for unwanted hair.

Future Checkups:

Roughly 90% of patients experience a permanent reduction in their hair growth. However, some people may need a few checkups later to maintain the results. This is completely normal and should not be a major concern regarding the effectiveness of the treatment.
