Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an effective, long-term solution for getting rid of unwanted hair. During treatment, the laser tool targets the hair follicle under your skin. The heat from the laser destroys the hair follicle, preventing further hair growth.

Aesthetic Lab is a state-of-the-art medical spa that offers many innovative aesthetic treatments. With laser hair removal, the specialists can remove unwanted hair from almost any part of your body, including:

  • Above the lip
  • Chin
  • Underarms
  • Forearm
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Legs
  • Bikini area

If you’re tired of shaving, tweezing, and waxing your unwanted hair, schedule a consultation at Aesthetic Lab to see how laser hair removal can benefit your beauty routine. 

How do I prepare for laser hair removal?

Aesthetic Lab provides specific instructions on what you need to do to prepare for your laser hair removal sessions to get you the best results. 

They may recommend you stop plucking and waxing your unwanted hair about six weeks before your first session. These hair removal techniques may disrupt the hair follicle and decrease the effectiveness of your laser treatment.

They also advise that you avoid the sun for up to six weeks before your treatment to improve the effectiveness of your treatment and reduce the risk of complications. 

You should shave the area undergoing laser hair removal the day of your appointment. 

What happens during laser hair removal?

The specifics of your laser hair removal depend on the area of your body undergoing treatment. Your provider creates a personalized beauty plan and reviews the details before your first session. 

While you relax in the treatment chair, your provider cleanses your skin with an antibacterial agent. They may also apply a numbing lotion to ease discomfort during laser therapy.

Then, they apply the laser tool to your skin and start treatment. You may feel a snapping sensation as the laser energy targets the hair follicles. Laser hair removal may take a few minutes or up to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Your skin may be red and swollen after your laser session, but there’s no need for any downtime. You need to protect your treated skin with sunscreen or clothing following your session to prevent hyperpigmentation. 

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

Hair grows in cycles, and you need more than one laser hair removal treatment to get the best results. The number of sessions depends on the part of the body undergoing treatment and may range from 2-6 sessions set at 4-16 week intervals.
