Are you tired of having hair in places you’d rather not? Laser hair removal treats stubborn areas like the bikini line, upper lip, chin, armpits, and legs. You’ll never miss shaving when you opt for permanent, painless hair removal. The result is smoother, sexier skin with zero downtime. 

As with any aesthetic service, results vary depending on several factors. Overall, patients are thrilled with laser hair removal results

Many patients will see a 10-25% reduction in the appearance of hair after their first permanent hair removal treatment.

Whether you’re worried about sensitive skin, excessive hair growth, or the cost of laser hair removal, you’ll be surprised to discover how effective and available this treatment is to patients like you. Discover if you are an ideal candidate and decide to eliminate that stubborn hair permanently.

How does laser hair removal work?

Permanent hair removal uses a concentrated beam of light that targets hair follicles just below the skin. 

The pigment in the hair (melanin) is then absorbed by the laser and converted into heat. As a result, it prevents further hair growth in the targeted area. 

Many patients will see a 10-25% reduction in the appearance of hair after their first permanent hair removal treatment. Still, it’s critical to know it takes multiple treatments for optimum results, although individual results may vary. Laser hair removal can work for multiple skin tones or colored hair but is most successful for those with dark hair and light-to-medium skin tones. For patients with darker skin tones, The Medical Spa offers a variety of machines to tailor treatments for the best results.

The procedure may be less effective for those with natural hair colors that don’t absorb light as well, such as red, white, gray, or blonde. Don’t get discouraged, though. 

The process takes minutes for smaller areas, such as the upper lip or chin. It could take over an hour for larger areas, such as the legs, chest, or back. 

How much does permanent hair removal cost? 

The cost of permanent and laser hair removal depends on the treated area and your provider’s location, skill level, the size of the treated area, the number of sessions needed, etc. At The Medical Spa, our prices start at $290 for a small area and we suggest six treatments for the very best results.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

You may experience some sensitivity in the treated area when you receive a treatment, but it should not be painful. 

The best way to describe the sensation is equivalent to a rubber band snapping your skin. There may be skin irritation and slight discomfort for a few hours after treatment, but they are minimal. Clients may return to their normal daily activities immediately after their procedure with no downtime.

How long will my laser removal appointment be?

The process takes minutes for smaller areas, such as the upper lip or chin. It could take over an hour for larger areas, such as the legs, chest, or back. 

Another determining factor is whether you request a cooling or numbing gel to reduce discomfort or if your doctor offers one. Numbing gels and creams take 30-60 minutes to work and could delay treatment time. For the most part, expect to be in treatment for at least an hour, and plan accordingly. 

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Results from laser hair removal last months for some patients and years for others. Many people need maintenance treatments at least once a year to stay hair-free, and it’s normal for some to grow back. If the hair grows back, it is lighter and less noticeable than it was previously.
