Laser Hair Removal

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Are you tired of having to shave, wax, and pluck? Laser hair removal will remove the unsightly hair from your face, underarms, back, legs, bikini area, and elsewhere on the body. Using the advanced Cutera® Cool Glide, we can effectively eliminate unwanted hair for up to 17 weeks at a time. Best of all, it’s a non-invasive, painless procedure that is safe for almost all skin types and hair colors.

Beauty Essentials would be happy to set up a one-on-one consultation with you to go over your specific hair removal goals, as well as to discuss laser hair removal costs and show you some laser hair removal before and after pictures. Please call our Salon DaySpa today to schedule an appointment.

How Is Laser Hair Removal Performed?

Using Cutera® Cool Glide, the laser hair removal procedure works by directing bursts of light at the hair follicles to destroy them and, in effect, inhibit any re-growth. It is a relatively painless procedure that lasts anywhere from 10 minutes to one hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Prior to the treatment, a trained technician will apply a topical anesthetic to any sensitive areas as well as provide you with protective eyewear. Your technician will then use a small hand piece to touch your skin with flashes of Cutera® Cool Glide. Most areas require six to nine treatments for optimal results.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is generally a safe and effective procedure for almost anyone who wants to get rid of unsightly hair on their face or body. However, results will vary depending on your hair growth cycle, thickness and color, and treatment area. The best candidates tend to be those with dark, coarse hair and light skin. If you have blonde, grey, or red hair, it may be more difficult to treat. Also, pregnant women and anyone with a skin disorder such as psoriasis or dermatitis should not undergo laser hair removal.

What Kind of Post-Operative Laser Hair Removal Care Can I Expect?

The most common reported side effects of laser hair removal are swelling, soreness and redness of the treatment area. Your technician will go over the proper after-care routine, which includes gentle cleansing of the treatment area with a mild soap and the application of prescribed lotions or ointments. It’s best to stay out of the sun or to wear a strong SPF sunscreen if you’re going to be exposed to any sunlight.

The best part about laser hair removal is that it requires little to no downtime, and you can resume normal activities immediately. You should, however, discontinue waxing or using depilatory creams after the treatment.

What Are the Typical Results of Laser Hair Removal?

Our patients love the convenience of laser hair removal, especially that they no longer have to undergo painful waxing or plucking.

Laser hair removal tends to be long lasting, but the duration depends on the treatment area. Upper body hair removal typically lasts from seven to 11 weeks; mid-body results last 10 to 16 weeks; and leg treatments last from 11 to 17 weeks.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?

Laser hair removal prices are based upon on the size and number of the areas to be treated, so they will vary from patient to patient. We recommend calling our DaySpa, where a member of our friendly and knowledgeable staff will help you schedule an appointment with Patricia or Paul to discuss your specific case.

Note that laser hair removal can end up costing less than waxing over time. Please call us today and let us answer any questions you may have about this procedure.
