Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is the best way to get rid of unwanted hair once and for all. Even though laser hair removal treatments have been around for quite some time, new technologies and innovations allow this sought-after hair-reducing method to be used on a wide array of skin tones and hair colors for long-lasting results.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal uses a concentrated light beam to target melanin in the hair follicle and destroy it. The laser emits pulsating rays of energy that are damaging enough to prevent future growth without causing any harm to the surrounding skin.

At Beyond Skin Aesthetics, we use the Gentle Max Pro laser system to eliminate unwanted hair from the face and body. The Gentle Max Pro releases short bursts of laser light into the skin, targeting the hair follicle and stunting its growth while keeping the surrounding skin intact. The advanced hair removal platform has the added benefit of cooling the skin with cryogen. Cooling the skin helps prepare it for the treatment and minimizes discomfort.

Most people who opt for hair removal need a series of sessions (at least six) to achieve optimal results because not all hairs in an area are growing simultaneously. After the recommended number of sessions, which you must space out over time, you can expect about a 70-90% reduction in both the quantity and quality of hair.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal has several benefits, with the most obvious being a significant, long-term reduction in body and facial hair.  

Unlike traditional hair removal methods like shaving or waxing, laser hair removal is a more permanent solution. Because it targets the root of the hair follicle rather than cutting the hair where the skin and hair meet or ripping the hair out of the follicle, which can regrow, the hair’s growth cycle is halted. This means less (or even no) time spent worrying about and tending to unwanted body hair and dealing with ingrown hairs and the post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation they can bring.

Each laser hair removal session is quick and, depending on the size of the treatment area, can usually be completed in about 15 minutes. 

What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal

Before your  treatment, we recommend having a full consultation. During your consultation, our team can assess the treatment area, discuss the number of sessions you’ll need, and analyze your skin to ensure you are a candidate for the treatment. You must also shave the area before your appointment to ensure effective results.

While it is generally well-tolerated, it’s important to know that there may be some mild stinging or tingling and the feeling of a rubber band snapping on the skin. Then, you and your provider will slip on protective eye goggles.

Then, your provider will hold a handheld laser device up to your skin and glide over it. With each pass, it will emit targeted beams of light that will target the melanin within the hair follicles, interrupting their growth pattern.

It’s common for the treated areas to appear slightly red immediately after treatment, which should subside within a few hours. In rare cases, there may be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin surrounding treated areas; these changes usually resolve on their own within weeks.
