Laser hair removal is the answer for smooth, silky skin.
Laser hair removal targets the pigment in your hair, destroying hair follicles, and inhibiting future growth. After undergoing regularly scheduled laser hair removal sessions, you will notice a dramatic reduction of hair returning to the areas treated, with plenty of hair-free time between treatments. Once the hair follicles are damaged, the hair in the treated area falls out, leaving your skin smooth, silky, and soft. Imagine no more shaving or waxing, with hair-free legs, upper lip, underarms, and a silky smooth bikini area.
What should I expect during my laser hair removal session?
A cooling gel will be applied prior to treatment. You will experience minimal to no pain or discomfort. The treatment itself is rapid and precise, as the laser can target many hairs in a fraction of a second, without damaging the surrounding skin.
During the treatment, our certified practitioner at Comprehensive Laser & Aesthetics at our Columbia medical laser clinic, in will apply the laser hair removal device to the treatment area. You will feel the light energy as heat as it targets the unwanted hair. Most treatments can be performed in twenty minutes or less, depending on the size of the area being treated. Book your treatments at least four to six weeks apart for optimal results. For best results, based upon the quantity of hair, maximum results require six to eight treatments.
What is the best way to prepare for laser hair removal?
A Comprehensive, Personalized Approach
- Remove any makeup, lotions, or creams, so that the treatment area is completely clean prior to treatment
- Shaving the area prior to treatment is also recommended within twenty-four hours of your scheduled session
- Avoid plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for up to six weeks or more prior to treatment, so that the hair follicles can be treated by the laser
- Avoid tanning or sun exposure prior to your treatment
