Advanced Options

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment to permanently reduce hair in areas like the face, back, legs, arms, bikini line, and underarms. Many people have treated these areas for decades with shaving or waxing, pouring money into methods that only last a short time — some only for days.

Laser hair removal is here to give you long-lasting and smooth skin. Hair follicles are permanently disabled over the course of several treatments, so you never have to worry about shaving or waxing again. Skin Deep Medical Spa uses three advanced lasers for hair removal: Clear + Brilliant pelo™, Cutera®, and Palomar®.

What Can I Expect?

Your Laser Hair Removal Procedure

The only preparation you need to do before a laser hair removal session is to shave the area being treated between one and two days before the appointment.

Avoid tanning beds or self-tanners one week prior to each treatment and do not wax or dye the hairs in the treatment area within two weeks leading up to your appointments. The laser passes into your pigment (the color inside your hair follicles) and destroys the follicle from within. After each laser hair removal session, you'll notice the hair coming back sparser, and the hair that does grow in is lighter in color and finer in texture.

No Downtime Needed

Laser Hair Removal Recovery and Aftercare

Taking a few simple precautions to protect the treatment area after a session ensures optimal results.

Your Skin Deep laser specialist will instruct you to protect the treated area from direct sunlight and avoid hot baths or showers for 24-48 hours. You should also refrain from using harsh chemicals or exfoliants and keep the area hydrated with a gentle moisturizer. Finally, you’ll need to skip strenuous exercise or activities causing excessive sweating for a couple of days. Otherwise, you can return to your normal routine right away.

Step Out in Confidence

Laser Hair Removal Results

The results of laser hair removal will come on gradually. You may start to see a reduction in hair growth within a few weeks to a month after your first session. More significant results become noticeable after approximately four to six sessions, typically spaced one month apart. This is because hair follicles that are at different phases in their growth cycle will be targeted in each treatment, providing a progressive reduction in hair thickness and density. After your treatments are complete, you can enjoy the freedom of silky smooth skin with no maintenance. It’s possible for sparse hair growth to return later, at which point a maintenance session can be scheduled. However, any subsequent hair growth is minimal, and the hair is finer and lighter. Clients tend to be very satisfied with the long-term benefits of laser hair removal, enjoying smooth, silky skin with zero daily maintenance.

Laser Hair Removal Frequently Asked Questions

During your appointment, a concentrated light beam will be aimed at the treatment area, which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles without damaging the skin. Most patients only feel a slight prickling sensation. After each laser treatment, you will notice less and less hair growing back, and what does return becomes finer, lighter, and grows slower. After your final treatment, hair will stop growing back altogether.

The Skin Deep Medical Spa team gives you specific instructions ahead of time. You usually need to shave a day or two before each session. Don't tan for at least a week before each treatment, and don't wax or dye hair in between your appointments.

Most men and women get the desired results with a series of treatments. The exact number of treatments depends on the treatment area size and how thick your hair is, but in general, most people need about 4-6 sessions. Your treatments are scheduled at least one month apart, and the sessions generally last less than half an hour.

Laser hair removal is quick and painless, with most appointments lasting less than thirty minutes, depending on the area being treated. The number of treatments required varies from patient to patient and depends on the area of treatment, but on average, this process is completed over four to six rounds, each scheduled four to six weeks apart. You can also return to your normal activities immediately after leaving the office. There is no downtime.

People with all skin and hair types are candidates for hair reduction using laser hair removal. Recent technological advancements mean that those with blonde or red hair can now benefit from laser hair removal.
