Laser hair removal is a wonderful procedure that removes unsightly hair on all areas of the body. However, if you are entering into your first treatment, you may be wondering what to expect. What areas can be treated, how many treatments will you need and “ouch”, does it hurt? Our office operates the Lumenis LightSheer Duet, which is a state-of-the-art laser hair removal system and one of the most advanced in the market. It has a multi-tip system allowing for faster virtually pain free treatments on larger areas, such as the legs and back. And, a smaller tip for quick effective treatment of the smaller areas such as lip, underarm and bikini area. Patients receive a complimentary consultation to learn more about laser hair removal prior to treatment.
Treatments can completed on nearly any area of the body including legs, underarms, back and bikini. Regardless of the area being treated, the technician will consult with you on the various treatment protocol and costs prior to treatment. Patients should plan on having 6 treatments per area for maximum results, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Most of our patients can expect to see approximately 80% hair loss after the first 3 treatments alone. The technicians will also go over other safety protocol and urge to patients to stay out of the sun prior to and following immediate treatment, which is why laser hair removal is most popular in the winter.
It is very common for our female patients to receive hair removal treatments of the face, especially if they have darker colored hair growing caused by hormonal issues such as pregnancy. One of the other popular areas for our female patients is bikini treatments. A simple bikini line treatment will constitute the area outside of the panty line where hair can often grow. From there, there are different bikini packages offered to remove more hair, all the way up to complete. If you are a women who has been receiving bikini waxes for a long time, this will be a welcomed change to be hair free following the treatment series.
However, when it comes to men, they typically lean towards laser hair removal of the back, chest or smaller areas like the fingers or ears. Treatments of large areas such as a full mans back, can be completed in less than an hour and will be virtually pain free. The treatments cause very minimal discomfort and do not require any downtime. The treatment area will be slightly pink and may have mild puffiness following treatment, which will subside in a few hours.
