Laser Hair Removal Q&A

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal offers a permanent solution for unwanted facial and body hair. While the treatment is most effective for those with light skin and dark hair, advancements in laser technology have made the procedure safe and effective for almost every skin and hair type.

The concentrated laser energy targets the pigment in the hair follicle, destroying it and preventing future hair regrowth. The laser treats a quarter-sized area at a time, targeting several hairs at once without damaging the surrounding skin.

What areas can be treated with Laser Hair Removal?

The certified experts at Integrative Wellness & Aesthetics can use the laser to remove unwanted hair from almost any area of your body, including your:

  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Full face
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Bikini line
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Shoulders

Many women seek treatment for their legs and underarms, and men commonly seek Laser Hair Removal for their backs and shoulders.

What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal provides a convenient alternative to the hassle and expense of shaving, waxing, and plucking.

Most patients experience a permanent loss of unwanted hair after 3-7 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Sessions are quick, usually 30 minutes or less (although large areas may take up to an hour).

What can I expect from a Laser Hair Removal treatment?

For the six weeks leading up to your treatment, you’ll need to limit waxing and plucking as well as any sun exposure. It’s important that the hair roots remain intact, but you will need to shave the treatment area before the procedure.

While the laser doesn't cause pain, many patients describe the sensation as feeling like the snap of a rubber band. If you have particularly sensitive skin, your aesthetician may apply a cooling gel or anesthetic cream before treatment.

If you’re ready to get rid of that unwanted hair for good, call or book an appointment online with the professionals at Integrative Wellness & Aesthetics today.
