ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
A lot of people are nervous about going under the laser. But don’t worry—we’ve done this before. As the nation’s leader in Laser Hair Removal, we’ve performed over 1.5 million treatments on patients who are currently on impromptu beach trips & working bare leg looks 365 days a year (AKA living the fuzz-free dream). But the results are going to vary because everyone’s hair is different. You might be smooth with just a couple treatments, or you might need some extra TLC (Tender Laser Care). What we can guarantee is that your hair will become thinner, softer and less dense than it is now, and that our amazing clinicians have got your back (and your legs, your bikini line, your armpits, and anywhere else that might need attention)!
A laser hair removal session can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas treated. Before the session, you’ll be given protective eye gear. Once the session begins, you’ll feel a stinging sensation when the laser becomes active. Will it hurt? It really depends on your personal pain threshold, as well as your hair density and thickness. Most of our patients just describe it as a very tolerable prickling sensation and some feel minimal to no pain at all.
There’s also a few things you need to do before and after your appointment to ensure safety and effectiveness.
We love talking laser science. Laser hair removal uses fast laser light pulses to selectively destroy hair follicles by targeting their melanin (color). The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser’s light pulse, which damages the follicle enough to significantly slow hair regrowth. How is it permanent? Our lasers travel deeper into your skin to destroy both the hair bulb & stem cells, so that unlike with waxing or shaving, the hair doesn’t grow back. We also use the BEST laser ever: The Cynosure Apogee Elite, which is safe and effective for all skin types.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal uses laser light pulses to selectively destroy actively growing hair follicles by targeting the melanin (color) in them. The melanin in the hair follicle absorbs the laser’s light pulse, which travels down to destroy the root of the hair, as well as its surrounding structures.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Maybe. It’s different for everyone—some find it stings & some are totally unbothered by it. The good news? Our clinical staff knows to assess your pain tolerance & plan accordingly with multiple ways to make the treatment as comfortable as possible for you. We have an awesome zimmer chiller with multiple settings to cool your skin off during the entire treatment, as well as stress balls (trust us: this works) and ice packs for those extra-sensitive areas. But ask yourself this: does having a huge razor bump in a not-cute location hurt? I think we all know the answer to that one.
Will I experience any side effects?
There are a few potential side effects, but nothing crazy. The most common ones include redness, swelling, itching or laser bumps, but by following our aftercare instructions, they should go away within a day or two. Your LaserAway Clinician will give you more detailed information at your appointment, or you can to get more info in advance.
How do I prepare for a laser hair removal treatment?
You’ll be asked to discontinue waxing or tweezing six weeks before a laser hair removal treatment. You’ll also be asked to avoid sun exposure and spray tans two weeks beforehand.
Is there anyone who can’t get laser hair removal?
The good news: Our lasers treat all skin types and most skin and hair combos. The only catch: Since our lasers target hair pigment, we are unable to treat body hair that’s blonde, red, grey or white. Not sure whether it will work for you? Book your free consultation, and we’ll walk you through everything you need to know.
What’s a laser hair removal treatment like?
A laser hair removal treatment can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. Before the treatment, your clinician will ask you a few important medical-related questions, and you’ll prep the area to be treated by removing deodorant, covering tattoos and wiping off any makeup, sunscreen or lotion. Then, you’ll be given protective eye gear. Once the treatment begins, you can just sit back, relax and enjoy episodes of your favorite reality shows or listen to your favorite music while your clinician does their work. If you’re having trouble relaxing, we also have stress balls! Once the treatment is done, we’ll give you some soothing cream and aftercare instructions to take home.
Which lasers do you use?
LaserAway uses the Cynosure Apogee Elite, which is safe and effective for all skin types thanks to its dual wavelengths: the Nd:YAG and the Alexandrite. The lasers used in laser hair removal are highly sensitive to all skin colors and pigments. This means they can more precisely penetrate hair follicles without damaging surrounding tissue.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal provides permanent hair reduction by up to 80 percent after a series of six to eight treatments.
How many treatments will I need?
It depends on the hair’s density and the location of the area being treated. Because only hair follicles in the active growth stage can be successfully targeted during a laser hair removal treatment, you will need multiple sessions. It could be anywhere from 4-10 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Check out our area-specific service pages or ask your LaserAway Clinician for specifics.
