Laser Hair Removal Q&A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a treatment that uses concentrated beams of light to reduce unwanted hair. It’s a safe and effective treatment that can reduce regrowth in the following areas.

  • Back
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Neck
  • Buttocks
  • Bikini line
  • Shoulders
  • Chest

You can treat several areas during the same visit to Medical Spa NP, making the most of your valuable time. 

How does laser hair removal work?

Covering your body are tiny sacs called hair follicles. At the base of each follicle lies a hair root that produces hair cells. As those cells stack on top of each other, a strand of hair forms and eventually exits your skin. 

Hair grows in cycles, including phases of active growth, transition, and shedding. Laser hair removal works by directing controlled light into your skin. The light is absorbed by the pigment in each hair and is converted into heat. Laser hair removal is not effective on grey, white, blonde, or bright red hair due to insufficient pigment. 

That heat damages the hair root, preventing normal regrowth. Laser hair removal is most effective when hair is in the active growth stage, which is why it takes between 6-10 sessions spaced six weeks apart to achieve optimal results. 

Is laser hair removal painful?

Medical Spa NP uses the EVO Light™ Series treatment platform for laser hair removal. This device uses an advanced cooling system to keep the surface of your skin at a comfortable temperature during each session. 

You may feel a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band against your skin as the laser pulses. There is no significant discomfort, but if you have especially sensitive skin, you can use a special numbing cream prior to your appointments. 

Is laser hair removal a good investment?

Laser hair removal requires a higher up-front cost than other hair removal options. When viewed in the long term, however, the expense is a worthy investment. 

All those razors, replacement blades, wax strips, depilatory creams, and salon visits really add up over time. There’s also the value of your time to consider. Laser hair removal creates soft, smooth skin that lasts after only a few short appointments. 

Medical Spa NP offers competitive pricing for laser hair removal, and other laser therapies like IPL, sun spot removal, and facial rejuvenation. To explore laser hair removal in more depth, call the office to set up a visit.
