Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a minimally invasive procedure that uses lasers to destroy hair follicles and prevent regrowth of facial and body hair. Laser hair removal offers a long-lasting solution to unwanted hair growth that avoids the hassle and inconvenience of other traditional hair removal methods like shaving and waxing. Laser hair removal can reduce unwanted hair growth permanently, though follow-up visits once or twice a year may be needed to maintain the results.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by using laser light energy to destroy hair follicles at the root, which prevents the hair from growing and allows the root to fall out naturally. At Weight Loss and Vitality, the team uses different lasers with specific wavelengths to manage finer hair on the face and thicker hair on the arms, underarms, bikini, and legs for a safe, effective treatment.

Where can laser hair removal be performed?

Laser hair removal is available for most areas of the face and body. Popular areas to get laser hair removal are:

  • Upper lip
  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Forehead
  • Underarms
  • Forearms
  • Bikini area
  • Thighs and lower legs

Laser hair removal can save you time getting ready each day, so you don’t need to shave, tweeze, or wax regularly. It can also improve facial aesthetics by removing unwanted or distracting facial hair that alters your appearance in an unpleasant way.

What should I expect when getting laser hair removal?

Before your session, the Weight Loss and Vitality team may recommend that you shave the treatment area for a smooth surface and better laser penetration. Once you arrive for your session, your provider has you relax on a comfortable reclining chair and wear protective eyeglasses.

Your provider then presses the handheld laser wand against your skin and emits a quick pulse of laser light. This feels like a rubber band snap. This is repeated over the treatment area. Sessions can last anywhere from 10-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

The team typically recommends 6-8 laser hair removal sessions to see the best results. Thinner, lighter colored hair may take fewer sessions than thicker or coarser dark hair to be fully removed. After each session, you’ll notice less regrowth as the hair follicles become smaller, thinner, and fewer in number due to fall out.
