Who is an Ideal Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Reducing hair follicle growth with a laser is a safe process that is suitable for many patients. In your initial consultation, we will talk about your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you should get this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Want to stop using other hair removal methods (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in good, overall physical health
How Is Laser Hair Removal Performed?
On the day of your laser hair removal appointment, you can lie in a private treatment room as areas of your face and body being treated are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and moisturizers. During the procedure, a team member will stretch out the area to create a clear pathway between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The laser's energy will focus on the follicle to minimize future hair growth. Usually, you will need to get 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to reach the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Nadomi Medspa targets only the hair follicle to preserve the skin and other tissue in the area being treated.
What Should I expect after Laser Hair Removal Treatments?
Although the treatment is mostly gentle, the treated areas of your skin may look like it has a light sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you are able to go back to all normal activities, but you need to avoid heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. At home following your appointment, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to treat any mild discomfort.
Laser Hair Removal FAQ
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that varies in cost, depending on the coverage area being addressed on the body, as well as how many sessions are needed to attain a smooth, hairless result. When we discuss pricing with our patients, we often bring up the costs associated with waxing and how this can add up over time, especially if you get waxed on a regular basis year after year. Laser hair removal is more costly than waxing or other hair removal methods, but it is generally the most effective. We will create a custom plan for you that includes the total number of sessions recommended and pricing options to consider.
How effective is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is known to be a solid solution for hair removal. While some men and women can enjoy the benefits of the treatment for years, it is considered semi-permanent in some cases. Meaning, there could potentially be some hair growth that occurs in areas where the laser technology did not hit. Regardless, patients find the majority of the hair will be gone after their treatment plan has concluded and even if some hairs pop up, it is very easy to manage. Most patients find they receive a smooth result. Additional laser hair removal treatments can also be scheduled to take care of any stragglers or new growth as well.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair growth occurs in varying cycles. While some hair may be in a live growing phase, others may be dormant. Since each follicle grows in various stages, multiple treatment sessions are typically needed to target each hair and follicle at its growing phase. Between treatment sessions, the hairs that do grow can be shaved because the follicle is not affected. Laser hair removal removes the hair from the follicle, but the laser must be able to see the hair to remove it. If a follicle is dormant, it is harder for the laser to read. Spreading out your sessions over various weeks helps remove each follicle for the smoothest, most effective result.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal may cause some minor discomfort, but it is not considered a painful procedure. Most patients will feel a slight sting when the laser targets and removes the hair follicle. We can apply a numbing ointment to the surface of the skin prior to the start of the treatment session. For patients who are used to getting waxed, they report that laser hair removal causes much less discomfort than a normal waxing session.
Which laser is best to remove hair?
There are many great lasers on the market today. Nadomi Medspa is proud to offer the latest hair removal technology for patients of varying hair types. The lasers we invest in offer excellent results, and we continue to upgrade our technologies as newer lasers enter the marketplace and become available. We encourage you to ask us about our in-house technology during your laser hair removal consultation.
