What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive and painless procedure that induces permanent hair loss in targeted areas of the body. This treatment destroys the targeted hair follicles, thereby stopping hair growth forever. Laser hair removal is suitable for treatment areas that you want to smoothen permanently, such as the shoulders, underarms, legs, or upper lips. It liberates you from the need for constant maintenance in the form of waxing, shaving, and tweezing, and the treatment itself is painless and comfortable. Medical Aesthetics is here for you for your Evergreen laser hair removal needs.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Each individual hair strand grows out of a tube-like hair follicle in three stages: anagen, catagen, and telogen. The growing hair is connected to the hair follicle and root in the first stage (anagen), but it gradually gets disengaged and falls away. When the laser energy is directed at the unwanted hair follicles, the pigment in the hair absorbs the energy and is destroyed. All the unwanted hair follicles in the anagen stage are immediately destroyed, stopping hair growth completely. The other hair follicles can be targeted with laser energy over successive sessions once they reach the anagen stage.

Which Device/Technique Do You Use for Laser Hair Removal?

Depending on your skin type, Medical Aesthetics uses two cutting-edge technologies for laser hair removal — Nd YAG or ProWave by Cutera. Both laser technologies are extremely safe and comfortable, but the ProWave by Cutera is more capable of removing lighter and finer hair with the utmost precision. Our cosmetic providers will examine your skin tone and hair quality to recommend the ideal technique.

How Is Laser Hair Removal Performed?

Our Evergreen laser hair removal provider carefully examines the hair in the targeted regions, discusses your goals, and reviews your medical history. The hair in the targeted areas is trimmed down, and a numbing gel is applied to your skin for comfort. The laser device is adjusted according to your specific skin quality and hair color, and it’s guided over the treatment areas. As the laser energy enters your skin, you experience a slight warming sensation, but there’s no pain. The entire treatment concludes within 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

What Are the Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal increases your skin’s temperature and leads to mild redness, similar to a sunburn. However, there are no harsh side effects or complications.

What Is the Recovery Process After Laser Hair Removal?

You can resume all your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment, but you should avoid direct sun exposure for a few days.

When Will I See the Results From Laser Hair Removal?

The results will gradually appear over 2 to 4 weeks as the unwanted hairs fall out. However, you’ll need to schedule multiple sessions spaced one month apart to achieve permanently hair-free skin. That’s because each session only targets hair

Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

You’re a candidate for laser hair removal if you have unwanted hair in some body parts that you constantly wax or shave off. Laser hair removal can permanently smoothen the area, so you never have to worry about waxing again. The cosmetic provider will carefully assess your skin and hair quality to ensure you’re a suitable candidate for the treatment.
