Is Laser Hair Removal Right for Me?
Hair removal with a laser is a gentle procedure that is suitable for most patients. At your consultation, we will discuss your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good fit for this treatment. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other hair removal techniques (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have light skin and dark hair
- Are in overall good health
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
On the day of your appointment, you will lie in one of our treatment rooms as areas of your face and body being treated are cleaned to eliminate oil, dirt, and moisturizers. During laser hair removal, a team member will smooth out the area to provide a direct pathway between the laser and the hair follicle root. The laser beam will target and kill the hair follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over 3 – 4 weeks to get your ideal results. Your treatments will be staggered to allow the affected areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles in the dormant phase to cycle into the active growth phase so the laser can be effective. The state-of-the-art Forever Bare BBL technology we use at Modern Medical Spa targets only the hair follicle, which preserves the skin in the area being treated.
About Forever Bare BBL™
While most laser hair removal devices concentrate 100% of their energy, Forever Bare BBL is a groundbreaking technology that uses lower pulses at high repetition rates in order to create a treatment that is safe, efficient, and fast. Additionally, the handpiece is outfitted with thermoelectrically cooled sapphire plates, which keep the skin comfortable at all stages of the procedure. This technology can treat up to skin level V, making it perfect for patients of almost all skin types. It can be used on virtually all areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands.
What to Expect After Laser Hair Removal
While laser hair removal is mostly gentle in nature, the treated areas of your skin may feel like they have a slight sunburn due to the use of lasers. When you leave our office, you are able to resume all normal activities, but you should avoid exercise or sun exposure for at least 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. At home following your appointment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or ice packs to alleviate any discomfort.
Laser Hair Removal FAQs
How much does laser hair removal cost?
A laser hair removal treatment varies in cost based on the coverage area being addressed on the body, in addition to how many sessions are needed to get optimal results. To help put the cost of laser hair removal into perspective, estimate the time and energy you currently spend on waxing, shaving, or other temporary hair removal methods. This is why laser hair removal is typically cheaper and can save you time and energy in the long-run. Our team will develop a custom treatment plan for you that includes the total number of appointments you need and pricing options to consider.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal is an effective treatment for lasting improvements. While men and women can enjoy the results of the treatment for many years, it's technically semi-permanent since some hair follicles may be unaffected. Regardless, patients find the majority of the hair follicles are not growing anymore once their treatment plan is finished and if a few hairs are still growing, it's very easy to manage. Additional laser sessions may also be scheduled to address new growth and any stragglers as well.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Your hair growth occurs in phases. While some hair follicles are in a live growing phase, other follicles are resting. Because each follicle is in various stages, multiple treatment sessions are recommended to target each follicle when it is in a growing phase. Getting your sessions over several weeks allows for effective results and smoother skin.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The process of laser hair removal can cause mild discomfort, but it is not painful. Most patients may feel a slight sting when the laser targets and removes the follicle. We may apply a local anesthetic to the surface of the skin before your treatment session. For patients who have been getting waxed, they think that laser hair removal feels more comfortable compared to getting waxed.
