Just The Facts, Ma’am, About Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair RemovalHere’s a great idea whose time has definitely come – No more waxing, shaving, ingrown hairs, plucking, razor burn, and pain!

One of the most popular services we offer at Keystone Cosmetic Surgery is laser hair removal. Our clients love being hair free and smooth.

Are you considering giving laser hair removal a try? Great! Here are a few things to know before your first appointment:

  • You should avoid shaving or waxing for about six weeks prior to your appointment. Why? Because laser hair removal targets the roots of your body hair, so if you’ve recently waxed or plucked, those roots will be temporarily gone and the laser will have nothing to target.
  • The laser will be calibrated specifically for you – your hair thickness, skin tone, and hair color. Next, a gel or topical numbing agent will be applied to protect your skin. You may experience some slight tingling, heat, or minor discomfort during the procedure, but overall the pain should be minimal, if any. You will be asked to wear eye protection to shield your eyes from the bright light of the laser.
  • Depending on the area being treated, your appointment will last about 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • After your treatment, you may experience minor swelling and redness. This is normal. You should be able to go about your regular daily activities immediately. If you need some mild pain relief, you can use over-the-counter pain relievers.
  • The targeted hair should start to fall out a few days after the procedure. You may have to return for a few follow up sessions to get the most optimum results. You should plan on a follow-up session in abut 4 to 6 weeks. Avoid waxing, plucking, and excessive sun exposure between treatment sessions.
  • After you have completed the necessary sessions, the laser-treated hair will be permanently gone – you won’t have to shave, pluck, or wax again.

Fall is here and holiday parties are just around the corner. Now is the perfect time to schedule a consultation appointment.
