Laser Hair Removal at a Glance
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser Hair Removal goes right to the root of an unwanted hair problem: the hair follicle itself. Laser Hair Removal disables the follicle’s ability to produce any more hair. Results with Laser Hair Removal can depend on the darkness of the hair and the stage of growth of the hair follicle – these things will determine the number of sessions required to get rid of all the unwanted hair.
Hair must be in a growth stage during treatment, which is one of the reasons why Hair Laser Removal requires several sessions: all follicles are not in the same stage at the same time. Plus, stages can last anywhere between 2 to 6 months. The three stages of hair growth are growth, regression and resting.
What Does Laser Hair Removal Treat?
Laser hair removal treats unwanted hair. The quickness of the treatment, combined with the long-lasting effects and large areas that can be treated at one session, definitely make it the solution of choice for thousands of people. Laser hair removal works on the face, armpits, bikini areas, back, legs, arms, chest and many other areas. Dark hair is more successfully treated than light hair and hair must be in an active growth stage. However, when you seek treatment at our medical spa in Virginia, we can assure you that you’ll get the results you desire!
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal:
- No more irritation from shaving or cream
- Large areas treated at one time
- Sessions are short
- Most parts of the body treatable
What Are Laser Hair Removal Treatments Like?
Sessions happen in our state-of-the-art treatment rooms in a relaxing and comfortable setting. The area to be treated is properly cleansed before the laser process begins. A wand or hand piece goes over the treatment area and delivers the light of the laser. Most treatments last approximately 15 minutes with additional sessions every 4 to 6 weeks; treatment duration and intervals depend on the size and location of the treatment area.
Does It Hurt and What Can Go Wrong?
Laser hair removal in Northern VA is a very safe treatment with few side effects. Some patients describe the actual therapy as feeling like mild stinging or pinching, but this discomfort subsides when each treatment ends and anesthesia is not required. Some people experience temporary redness or swelling after treatment.
What should I expect from Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
Laser hair removal reduces unwanted hair and saves you time from plucking, tweezing and shaving! You will see results immediately after each session, with less and less hair growth happening during the weeks after each session. Results depend on hair color, density, and the area that is treated. Maintenance appointments are encouraged to target hair that was in a dormant stage during previous sessions.
