Laser hair removal helps you save time and eliminates the need for shaving, plucking, waxing, and using electrolysis.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal, your aesthetic specialist examines areas of your body containing undesirable hair. They discuss your medical history, desired outcome, and what to expect during the procedure.
To get ready for laser hair removal treatment, follow your provider’s pre-procedure instructions. This includes protecting your skin from the sun, avoiding sunless tanning creams, and steering clear of electrolysis, plucking, and waxing for several weeks prior to your scheduled appointment.
Stop taking certain medications if your doctor recommends it and shave the treatment area the day before your appointment.
During laser hair removal at IMAC Med Spa, you rest in a comfortable chair in a relaxing room. Your specialist gives you goggles to protect your eyes from the light of the laser. They can numb the treatment area, if you’d like, before using a handheld device to apply laser energy to hairy areas of your skin.
While the laser destroys hair follicles, you might feel a cooling sensation or warm pinpricks. Each treatment might last a few minutes for small areas or over an hour for larger areas like your back.
After laser hair removal, you might experience swelling or redness for several hours. You can apply ice to the area as needed or take over-the-counter pain relievers. There’s no downtime, so you can resume your normal routine right away. Protect your skin from the sun and avoid tanning beds.
Over the next few days and weeks, expect the treated hair to fall out. Your provider might recommend a series of 2-6 treatments spaced apart at specific intervals to achieve the most desirable outcome.
Periodic maintenance treatments can help you maintain long-lasting hair reduction.
