Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is the most advanced solution available for unwanted hair on your face and body. If you're like most women, you've probably spent countless hours fighting unwanted body hair — and when you consider the cost of all those years of shaving cream, razors, and waxes, it's a very pricey battle. 

Laser hair removal is a better alternative because the laser actually disables hair follicles permanently. Instead of shaving nearly every day, you can enjoy your silky smooth skin and have some extra free time. 

Skin Deep Medical Spa uses three advanced lasers for hair removal: Clear + Brilliant pelo™, Cutera®, and Palomar®. 

Which areas is laser hair removal safe for?

Laser hair removal is safe and effective for most hair on your face and body, including:

  • Upper lip
  • Sides of face 
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Chest
  • Back

Discuss your exact laser hair removal needs with the Skin Deep Medical Spa team and they'll design a plan for ideal results in minimal time. 

What happens during laser hair removal?

Skin Deep Medical Spa uses a state-of-the-art laser that doesn't overheat or burn your skin. Most people say the treatment is comfortable and describe a mild prickling sensation. 

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. 

How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?

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. 

How do I prepare for laser hair removal?

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.
