Laser Hair Removal Q&A

What is laser hair removal?

 

Laser hair removal at Elevate Aesthetics uses advanced laser technology to permanently destroy hair follicles and get rid of undesirable facial or body hair. This treatment is safe, highly effective, and long-lasting. It allows you to reduce hours spent using other hair removal methods, such as shaving or waxing.

Why might I choose laser hair removal?

 

Laser hair removal can permanently eliminate unwanted hair on your:

 

  • Face
  • Upper lip
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Underarms
  • Abdomen
  • Bikini area
  • Legs

 

Laser hair removal at Elevate Aesthetics is safe and effective for all skin types. Your specialist reviews your lifestyle, medical history, and desired outcome to find out if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. They also discuss what to expect during the procedure and how to prepare for it.

How should I prepare for laser hair removal?

 

To get ready for laser hair removal, follow your provider’s instructions. You might need to stop taking certain medications for a period of time before your scheduled treatment.

Protect your skin from the sun, avoid sunless tanning lotions, and don’t pluck, wax, or use electrolysis for several weeks before your appointment. Shave the treatment area the day before the procedure.

What happens during my treatment?

 

During treatment, you relax on a reclining chair in a comfortable room. You also wear glasses to protect your eyes from the laser. Your Elevate Aesthetics specialist uses a handheld device to direct laser energy into targeted areas of your body.

 

They can first numb the treatment area to ensure you avoid any discomfort. You may feel a dull snapping sensation during the procedure, but it’s not painful.

 

The length of time laser hair removal lasts depends on the size of the surface areas treated. It could last a few minutes or more than 60 minutes, if you’re treating a large area of skin.

What should I expect after laser hair removal?

 

After laser hair removal, you may have some swelling or redness at the site of treatment, but you can resume normal activities immediately. Over time, treated hair falls out, little by little. Multiple laser hair removal sessions, along with periodic maintenance treatments, offer the most effective results. Your Elevate Aesthetics provider tailors each treatment just for you.
