If you’re looking for an effective alternative to endless shaving and waxing, keep reading to learn all about our process for painless laser hair removal.
Before Your Appointment
- Cleanse and wash the treatment area thoroughly before arriving to remove any lotions, oils, or creams. This allows the laser to target the hair follicles appropriately.
- Avoid waxing, plucking, or other hair removal methods that disturb the follicles before your session. Opt for shaving instead.
Maximum Comfort During Treatment
Your comfort is our top priority. Here’s how we ensure your session is as painless as possible:
- A topical anesthetic cream (lidocaine or prilocaine) is applied to numb the area pre-treatment. Follow directions and allow 30 minutes for full effectiveness.
- The area is cooled with a cooling gel or cold air device during the procedure to prevent heat sensations.
- Notify our technicians of any discomfort so they can immediately adjust and ensure your comfort.
The Laser Hair Removal Process
Our technicians use advanced laser technology to target and damage the hair follicles, preventing future growth. The process is fast, effective, and gentle:
- A handheld laser device emits a concentrated beam of light.
- The follicles absorb this light, which disables them and disrupts hair regrowth.
- Most patients report little to no pain during the brief sessions.
After Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Proper aftercare ensures the best results. Be sure to:
- Apply ice packs as needed to alleviate swelling or redness.
- Avoid sun exposure and tanning for 2 weeks post-treatment. Wear SPF 30+ sunscreen.
- Refrain from activities that induce sweating for 24-48 hours.
- Gently cleanse and moisturize with unscented products only.
- Do not scratch or exfoliate the treated area while healing.
