Laser Hair Removal

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses laser energy to stop hair growth on your legs, underarms, bikini line, back, or practically any other area of your body or face. Your hair grows in cycles; sometimes it’s actively growing (anagen phase), while other times it’s getting ready to shed. The laser is drawn to pigments in your hair and is most effective when hair is in the anagen phase.

As pigments absorb the laser energy, it’s converted to heat, which destroys the hair and disrupts the growth cycle. But each hair is at a different point in the growth cycle on any given day, meaning you need several laser hair removal sessions to achieve a dramatic reduction in hair growth.

With each laser hair removal treatment, hair sheds out within a couple of weeks, then grows back in finer and lighter. After several laser hair removal sessions, eventually, most targeted hair stops growing back altogether.

Is laser hair removal right for me?

Because of advancements in medical laser technology, more and more men and women are candidates for laser hair removal than ever before. Since the laser is drawn to dark pigments, it’s generally most effective if you have darker hair and lighter skin. But you may still be a candidate for laser hair removal at Rénove Medical Spa if you have:

  • Fine hair
  • Dark skin
  • Tanned skin
  • Light or reddish hair

When you come into Rénove Medical Spa for your laser hair removal consultation, Dr. Naqvi examines your target area and lets you know if laser hair removal is right for you, as well as how many sessions you may need (four to eight monthly sessions is common).

Do laser hair removal treatments hurt?

Laser hair removal clients explain that treatments feel like tiny rubber bands hitting their skin. Even though this sensation is well-tolerated, it can become a little uncomfortable in certain areas, like your upper lip or underarms.

Dr. Naqvi offers a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort. All you have to do is come in about 20-30 minutes before your laser hair removal session at Rénove Medical Spa to apply the numbing solution (if needed).

Can I shave after laser hair removal?

Yes! Unlike waxing, you don’t have to let your hair grow out between laser hair removal sessions at Rénove Medical Spa. You can shave the treated area as needed up to 24 hours before your scheduled session.

Don’t waste another day shaving or waxing by getting started on laser hair removal treatments at Rénove Medical Spa. Book your laser hair removal consultation online or over the phone.

Individual results may vary.
