Laser Hair Removal Q & A
Lumenis Stellar M22
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal uses heat energy from a beam of light to damage your hair follicles so they no longer produce hair. The laser energy penetrates the outer layer of skin and causes no damage.
What areas does laser hair removal treat?
Laser hair removal is effective just about anywhere you have unwanted hair. This includes:
- Small areas, such as under the arms, upper lip, and chin
- Medium-sized areas, such as the shoulders, forearms, lower legs, and women’s abdomens
- Large areas, such as an entire arm or leg, chest, back, and men’s abdomens
You may also elect laser for full-face hair removal or Brazilian bikini treatment.
How many laser hair removal treatments are needed?
Most people benefit from at least six to eight treatments to weaken all hair follicles and prevent future hair growth. Hair grows in cycles, so it takes several sessions spaced about a month apart to get all follicles in their growth phases.
Don’t be disappointed if you notice minimal results after your first session. With time, hair appears thinner and grows more slowly until it eventually stops growing altogether.
Will I feel pain during laser hair removal?
Most people tolerate laser hair removal treatments quite well and experience minimal discomfort. You will feel heat and a prickling sensation. If you’re concerned about discomfort, talk to the team at Samaeo Skin Spa to apply an ice pack before and after your session.
How should I prepare for my laser hair removal appointment?
Avoid tanning in the weeks prior to your treatment. Tan skin doesn’t respond well to laser hair removal. You’ll want to avoid direct sun exposure after your sessions, as your skin is temporarily extra sensitive to ultraviolet rays.
Should I plan downtime following laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is noninvasive and you can go right back to all your daily activities after treatment. You may have minor redness and swelling that resolves in about 24 hours.
