At your appointment, you will be allowed to relax in one of our treatment rooms as treatment areas are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and lotions. Numbing cream is applied for 20-30 minutes to reduce discomfort. During laser hair removal, a technician will slightly stretch the skin to provide a direct path between the laser and the hair follicle root. The laser beam will target and kill the hair follicle, preventing it from growing back. On average, you will need 6 – 8 sessions over a period of 6 – 8 weeks to achieve your best results. Your treatments will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth, to cycle into the active growth phase so they can be treated. The specialized laser hair removing technology we use at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center is able to target the hair follicle alone, preserving the skin in the treatment area.
What to Expect
While laser hair removal is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a slight sunburn due to the use of lasers. When you leave our office, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from exercise or sun exposure for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after your session, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to alleviate any discomfort.
