Laser Hair RemovalTucson, AZ

Dealing with unwanted body hair at home is never easy. From shaving to hair-removing chemicals there is no shortage of possible store-bought products. However, many do not use these products correctly or find they have no idea as to what they are doing. Other people will purchase faulty products that are ineffective or cause health problems after use.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

One medical treatment for hair removal that can remove unwanted hair without the pain from other techniques is laser hair removal. This procedure is efficient, effective and less painful than traditional shaving or waxing. Many people suffer from discomfort or pain in order to remove unwanted body hair. We can help to prevent that with our treatment.

If you are searching for an efficient and professional type of hair removal, then our laser hair removal is the treatment option for you.

Laser hair removal involves using a medical laser that directs highly-concentrated light to hair follicles on the body. The pigment within the follicles will absorb the light, which destroys the hair. Since this is a powerful medical device, patients cannot complete this treatment at home and must receive it at our med spa.

To see a lasting effect and the possibility of little to no hair regrowth in certain areas, the patient will need several appointments. Benefits of laser hair removal include:

  • The treatment will typically take less than an hour
  • No shaving or waxing necessary
  • Little to no pain during procedure
  • Investing in a professional medical procedure instead of a store-bought product

In most cases, the laser itself will cover the size of a quarter. We will use this device over the area we are treating. If we are treating multiple areas, the procedure may take longer. We will go over all these factors upon scheduling the appointment with the patient.

Understanding Laser Hair Removal

As a med spa, our team strives to create a comfortable atmosphere for the patient to relax during appointments. The effectiveness of the treatment will vary per the patient’s skin color in contrast with the hair color. The patient may need three to seven sessions for the hair to stop growing back. Areas of the body we can treat with laser hair removal include the:

  • Legs
  • Armpits
  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Chin
  • Chest/Stomach
  • Bikini line

While these are some of the main areas we treat, there are still more we can help to remove hair from as well. Since most patients want permanent hair removal, the patient needs at least several appointments. These appointments can be eight weeks apart or up to 16 weeks apart. In other cases, one or two treatments will only reduce unwanted hair instead of preventing it from growing back.

The Treatment Process

Since the length of time, the procedure takes will vary on the amount of hair we are treating. During a consultation, we will go over any potential risks and determine if the patient is a candidate for laser hair removal. Once we review the patient’s current condition and medical history, we will be able to determine if the patient is healthy enough for this treatment.

Before an appointment, it is important to avoid other hair removal methods such as plucking or waxing. Avoid direct sunlight for up to six weeks before the appointment, is possible. Shaving the treatment area the day before the appointment helps to remove hair above the skin so we can more easily target the root of the hair follicle without causing surface skin damage from burnt hairs.

We may use a topical anesthetic to help ease the chance of pain during the procedure. We will press the device against the skin. If we are only treating something like the upper lip, the procedure will only take a few minutes. Treating an area such as the back can take an hour.

Follow-Up Care

Patients may experience some temporary skin irritation following the procedure. This irritation can include some redness and swelling in the area of treatment. However, this irritation will only last for several hours after the treatment. If the patient has a skin reaction right after the procedure, we can help to reduce the inflammation. It is also necessary to avoid sun exposure to the area for around six weeks after treatment.

The patient will steadily shed the hair over the span of the next few days and weeks. If you are considering laser hair removal, call us today and schedule an appointment.
