Laser Hair Removal 101

Intense Pulsed Light is used to target areas of unwanted hair growth. Over the course of a treatment series, the treated hair follicles are damaged, preventing them from growing new hair. Hair goes through different phases, and the treatment is most effective during the growing phase. As your hair grows at different times, it will take several treatments to permanently remove all of the hair. While this treatment works best on lighter skin tones and darker hair, we also have alternative laser hair removal options that are safe for all skin types.

101 - What to Expect

Laser Hair Removal Results | What to Expect

Once the treatment area is cleansed, a protective lotion is applied to the skin. Each pulse of the laser feels like a light rubber band snap, and is generally comfortable to the patient. In between treatment sessions, you will find that fewer hairs grow in, and those that do grow are often lighter and thinner. In order to treat the hair during the target stage of growth, a full treatment series typically requires 5-10 treatments.

  • Laser Hair Removal Results After 1 Session
    Your hair will start to shed and you will be able to see results after your first session already as the first laser treatment reduces about 10% – 25% of the hair.
  • Laser Hair Removal Results After 3 Sessions
    You can expect a reduction of about 58% – 75%. It will take about 4 – 6 sessions to see the full and final results.

Pre-Treatment Instructions

Patients are asked to come in with their skin clean and moisturizer-free. You may shave prior to the treatment. Do not pluck or wax before or during the treatment series.

IPL Laser Hair Removal Service

During laser treatments, the hair follicle is altered by performing a series of laser pulses over the area, either permanently removing or replacing the unwanted hair with a vellus (fine, light-colored) hair. IPL laser hair removal can eliminate up to 85 percent of dark coarse hair. Almost any area can be treated with minimal discomfort and virtually no downtime.

  • Laser hair removal can target any area of the body that has unwanted hair.
  • It is a relatively fast procedure. It can take about 5 minutes for smaller areas such as the upper lip or chin and about 30 minutes for larger areas such as the back and legs.
  • It is also a relatively painless procedure that leaves no scars
  • Because the hair doesn’t grow back again, the skin will feel softer after the treatments are completed.

More about laser hair removal legs

The laser hair removal technique damages or destroys the actively growing hair follicle with heat sent by short intense pulses of light down the hair shaft causing it to shed. The skin pores then close afterward, leaving silky smooth legs. Destroyed hair follicles will not grow back again while damaged ones will eventually grow back with results lasting from between 2 – 6 years with regular maintenance sessions in between.
