HOW LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS
Laser hair removal uses a concentrated beam of light to heat the hair follicle and damage it so that it no longer produces hair. If you are a person who has light skin and dark hair, this can cut down the frequency of maintaining your hair growth by shaving or other hair removal products. Many times, if the area is large, it may take several sessions to remove all the hair initially. Maintenance treatments may be needed, but they are typically not as extensive as the first treatment. Laser hair removal is effective on all skin types and tones.
Laser hair removal can help you remove unwanted hair from your face, back, or belly. After a laser hair removal treatment, the hair grows back more slowly, and sometimes, not at all. You can expect to see the hair decrease over time with continued treatments. Many people choose to have their legs, bikini line, or underarms treated so that they can reduce or eliminate the need to shave.
After the laser treatment, applying ice to the treated area will help to reduce swelling, or cream may be used to soothe the area. After the treatment, it is usually advised to avoid the sun or use a tanning bed for up to six weeks. One thing you might want to be aware of is that the results are not usually immediate, and the hair falls out over days or weeks.
You might have wondered if home hair removal devices work as well as those that we use in our spa. Devices that are available for home use are very low power, and you must have special training to use the devices that are used in our spa facility. Home devices are not as effective as professional devices, and there is a risk of injury, particularly to the eyes. It is always best to have a trained professional perform the service so that it is effective and reduces the risk of injury.

The frequency of the treatments depends on how quickly your hair grows. Hair grows at different rates on different areas of the body. Also, everyone’s hair grows at a different rate. For instance, you may need to have your legs treated more frequently, but the hair on your back probably will not need to be removed as often. If multiple sessions are needed, sometimes the hair will not grow back altogether after a series of treatments.
WHAT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE WITH LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Today's laser hair removal treatments are advanced, and there is little discomfort involved. Many of the laser devices have a cooling device on the end so that all you will feel is a sensation of cold on your skin. Small areas take only a few minutes to treat, but larger areas can take up to an hour.
