Laser Hair Removal

How does laser hair removal work?

Lasers can safely remove hair from any skin type, even if you have delicate skin, because they operate at controllable levels of energy. When they’re set to a specific wavelength, they target hair follicles without harming the surrounding tissues. Each follicle absorbs the laser energy, which heats and destroys it so that it can’t continue to grow hair.

Why do you need more than one laser treatment?

Have you ever wondered how you can lose so many hairs in your hair brush yet never go bald? The answer to that question explains why you need multiple treatments.

Each hair follicle goes through growth cycles. They actively grow hair for about 3-5 years; then they enter a short transitional stage before going into the third resting stage. The follicle goes dormant, and the existing hair falls out. After about three months, the follicle begins another growth phase and grows a new hair.

Lasers can only destroy a hair follicle when it’s in the growth phase. Each follicle has its own timing: Some are dormant while others are growing. One laser session won’t treat the dormant hairs, so you’ll need to get a few more treatments at 6-8 week intervals until all of the hair follicles are dead.

What should you expect during laser hair removal?

The amount of time needed for your laser hair removal session depends on the area of the body being treated. If you’re only having hair removed from your upper lip, it won’t take long (compared to your back, which could take an hour).

Most people tolerate the laser treatment, but the team at Revive Wellness Center can apply a numbing cream to ensure your comfort. Afterwards, your skin may be slightly swollen or red, like you have a mild sunburn, but those symptoms should resolve in a few days, and you won’t need any downtime.

Can you get other cosmetic treatments at the same time as laser hair removal?

The team at Revive Wellness Center offers many different cosmetic treatments that can be done during the same appointment as your laser hair removal. They offer injectable dermal fillers and Botox that eliminate lines and wrinkles on your face, and body contouring that permanently eliminates fat in trouble spots like your abdomen, love handles, and thighs.

When you decide it’s time to put down your razor for good, contact Revive Wellness Center or schedule an appointment online so that you can be permanently done removing body hair.
