Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses noninvasive laser heat to disrupt active-growth hair follicles. It works by delivering short pulses of precision energy directly into each follicle, where it’s absorbed by the pigments. This process effectively fragments the follicle or “flips the switch” so it can no longer produce hair.

Gentle, noninvasive, and virtually painless, laser hair removal is considered a preferential cosmetic treatment — meaning it effectively targets hair follicles without harming skin cells and other nearby tissues.

What areas can laser hair removal treat?

Laser hair removal is equally effective for large and small treatment areas alike, and can give you smooth, hair-free skin on virtually any part of your body, including:

  • Upper lip and chin
  • Side of the face and neck
  • Chest, back, and shoulders
  • Underarm area
  • Bikini area and legs

Although the average laser hair removal patient is most interested in no longer having to deal with unwanted hair, the procedure has other benefits, too — after a full treatment cycle, many people notice that their skin is softer and more uniform in the treated area.

What is laser hair removal like?

Depending on the overall size and follicle density of the area you’d like to cover, laser hair removal can last anywhere from a few minutes to about an hour.

Before your session begins, the laser hair removal specialist at Ô de Rose Med Spa cleanses your skin and applies a topical numbing cream to ensure optimal comfort throughout the procedure. If you’re treating your chin, upper lip, or the sides of your face, you wear eye shields to protect your retinas and corneas from the laser.

During the procedure, the laser specialist holds your skin gently taut as they systematically pass the laser over the entire treatment area, spot-by-spot, sending quick pulses of energy into active hair follicles. Although each pulse of energy feels something like a tiny rubber band snapping against your skin, the sensation is brief and mild.

When can I expect to see results?

Because hair grows in cycles and the laser is only able to disrupt active-growth follicles, most people require several laser hair removal sessions to achieve complete results.

The average person sees a 10-25% reduction in hair after the first session, and permanent or near-permanent hair removal after about five to seven sessions, with each treatment spaced six weeks apart.
