How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal sessions with CynoSure® Elite+™ send waves of safe and effective laser energy deep down into your hair follicles. As those follicles heat up, their natural growth cycle is impacted. It takes a couple weeks, but those targeted hairs do eventually shed away on their own.
The next time hair grows back it’s finer, thinner, and lighter. With each subsequent treatment, less and less hair continues to grow back until eventually, hair stops growing back at all. Laser hair removal can drastically reduce hair growth in almost all areas, including your legs, arms, underarms, stomach, back, and neck, to name a few.
Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?
Because the Elite+ system is so advanced, even if you weren’t a candidate for laser hair removal before, you certainly could be now. It’s still true that laser hair removal is most effective if you have lighter skin and darker hair.
Treatments with Elite+ may also work if you have darker skin or lighter hair. The best way to know if laser hair removal is right for you is to come into LH Spa & Rejuvenation for a consultation.
How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?
It depends, although most men and women need a series of six to eight treatments, each spaced about four to eight weeks apart, for optimal results. Although laser hair removal is permanent, in some cases, it’s possible to have new hair growth.
This is most common during periods of hormonal fluctuations, particularly around pregnancy. If you ever have new hair grow in the treated area again, you can always come back to LH Spa & Rejuvenation for touch-up treatments as needed.
Is laser hair removal painful?
It’s normal to feel some slight discomfort, such as in sensitive areas (like your underarms), but you shouldn’t be in pain. Most men and women explain that laser hair removal feels like tiny rubber bands flicking your skin.
It’s helpful to apply a topical numbing cream, which you can get over-the-counter from your local pharmacy, before heading in for your treatment at LH Spa & Rejuvenation. This way, your skin is thoroughly numbed by your appointment time. As an alternative, you can apply an ice pack to have the same effect.
