How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal is a safe, non-invasive procedure harnessing powerful light beams. The innovative Elite+ technology concentrates one or two specific laser frequencies on unwanted hairs. The laser treats your follicles by pulsing over the treatment area for mere microseconds without harming your surrounding skin.

The melanin pigment in your hair follicles absorbs a near-infrared laser, eventually destroying 79% of treated hairs according to laser hair removal clinical trials for Elite+. Or, if you have a tan or a dark skin tone, an infrared laser is an even safer option for hair reduction.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a practical long-term option for many reasons:

  • Permanent: hairs that fall out never regrow
  • Non-surgical: no incisions
  • Convenient: easier than shaving, tweezing, and waxing
  • Quick: just minutes for small areas, or a half hour for large areas
  • Accurate: destroys follicles, not skin cells

How long does laser hair removal last?

The number of required sessions and percent of hairs removed varies, but usually, the effect is permanent.

Most women and men find it takes three to seven hair removal treatments to achieve their desired results. The Elite+ specialists at Total Wellness MediSpa safely treat a variety of areas:

  • Legs
  • Face
  • Groin
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Back

Is laser hair removal painful?

There's some discomfort during the laser hair removal procedure, but that’s perfectly normal and nothing to fear.

With each pulse, you feel a mild sting similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. If that sensation bothers you or you have sensitive skin, your Elite+ specialist can apply a topical cooling agent to ensure your comfort.

After each session, your skin in treated areas may temporarily appear or feel sunburned. Just apply ice, moisturizers, sunscreen, or topical anti-inflammatories as directed. Ask your technician about blisters and other less common side effects.

How do I prepare for laser hair removal?

Avoid plucking, tweezing, and waxing target hairs for six weeks before laser hair removal treatment. Wear sunblock and cover up as much as possible at the same time.

To maximize your comfort, your laser hair removal specialist trims the target hairs, provides you with protective eyewear and numbing creams as needed, and chooses the appropriate frequency before beginning.
