Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal involves exposing your unwanted body hair to beams of intense pulsed light (IPL). With each burst of light, pigments in your hair (known as melanin) absorb the light and begin to heat up. This elevation in temperature disrupts your hair growth cycle, essentially stopping hair growth.

Targeted hair sheds on its own within a few weeks. Hair does grow back but, over time, treated hair comes in finer and lighter. Eventually, most of it stops growing altogether.

Which areas are treated with laser hair removal?

The aesthetic team at Forever Young Medical Spa specializes in designing laser hair removal packages for both men and women. They use IPL to reduce unwanted hair on the following areas:

  • Back
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Underarms
  • Bikini line
  • Face and neck

No area is too large or too small. You can even have multiple areas treated during a single visit, coming one step closer to having dramatically smoother skin.

Forever Young Medical Spa offers topical numbing creams so you don’t have to worry about discomfort if you have a sensitive area treated.

How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?

Laser hair removal is most effective when hairs are actively growing (anagen phase). Because some hairs are resting, some are growing, and others are getting ready to loosen and shed, it’s important to undergo several laser hair removal sessions to target all hairs as they’re growing.

The team at Forever Young Medical Spa usually finds that a course of 6-10 laser hair removal treatments is most effective. Sessions should be booked about 4-6 weeks apart, depending on your hair growth, texture, and color.

Since new hairs can start developing over time due to hormonal changes or the effects of aging, you may need occasional maintenance laser hair removal sessions. The dedicated team at Forever Young Medical Spa provides spot treatments as needed after your laser hair removal package is complete.
