Laser Hair Removal Reviews
am i a candidate for laser hair removal?
Reducing hair follicle growth with a laser is a safe treatment that works well for many men and women. During your consultation, we will discuss your concerns and needs so we can determine if laser hair removal meets your cosmetic goals. Ideal patients for laser hair removal want to:
- Reduce hair on their face or body and have light skin and dark hair
- Decrease the use of other hair removal techniques, such as shaving, waxing, bleaching, or depilatory creams
- Maintain good, overall physical health
how is laser hair removal performed?
On the day of your appointment, we will ask you to relax on a comfortable treatment chair. Next, we start by cleaning the treatment area to eliminate dirt, oil, and moisturizers. During laser hair removal, a team member will stretch out the area to provide a direct path between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The energy from the laser will target and destroy the hair follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again. On average, you will need 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to experience optimal results. To allow the affected areas time to recover, we will stagger your follow-up appointments. This also allows the dormant hair follicles to cycle into the active growth phase so the laser can effectively remove all the hair. At Nirvana Med Spa, this revolutionary technology enables us to only target the hair follicle, which protects the skin in the treatment area.
is there any downtime after laser hair removal?
While laser hair removal is relatively gentle, your skin may feel like it has a slight sunburn after the treatment. After your session, you can resume all normal activities, but you should avoid strenuous activity or extended time outdoors. For at least a day and to help the treated areas heal, we highly recommend avoiding these types of activities. Following your treatment, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions, such as using anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to alleviate any mild symptoms.
