Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Lasers use concentrated light beams that focus on highly specific targets like hair follicles. The light destroys the pigment cells in the hair follicle, which then dies. Once the follicle dies, it won’t be able to grow new hair, so when your treatment is complete, you’ll be hair-free.

It’s essential to only consult with qualified professionals who specialize in laser hair removal, as it’s a treatment that requires expertise and experience to carry it out safely and effectively.

The team at American Beauty Medi Spa in Lake Forest, California, uses the state-of-the-art excel® HR laser system for their procedures, ensuring the best possible outcomes for your treatment.

What are the advantages of laser hair removal?

The main benefit is that laser hair removal’s a permanent solution to the problem of unwanted hair, so no more daily shaving or painful waxing sessions. Other benefits are:

  • Lasers are equally effective at treating large areas of skin or individual hairs
  • Lasers work quickly, so the procedure doesn’t take very long
  • On average, it only takes three to seven sessions to achieve permanent results
  • It’s a far less painful procedure than waxing or epilating

How do you prepare for a laser hair removal session?

Before your treatment, avoid plucking, waxing, and epilating, as these remove hairs by the roots. Laser treatment depends on targeting hair follicles, so don’t pull your hair out by the roots for at least six weeks before your appointment. It’s also a good idea to limit your time in the sun, because if your skin soaks up too much sun, it can reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.

What happens during laser hair removal?

After you’ve booked into the clinic, the team trims the hairs on the treatment area, so they are only a couple of millimeters long. They then apply a cooling treatment to your skin to ensure you stay comfortable and also to help the laser work properly, plus you’ll have protective goggles for your eyes.

Your doctor adjusts the excel HR device according to your skin color and the thickness, color, and density of your hair. They then apply the laser treatment and if necessary adjust the settings before continuing, depending on how well the first application works.

What happens after laser hair removal?

Your skin might feel like it’s mildly sunburned and look a little red, but cooling gels and moisturizers usually take care of that within a few days. You’ll see the hair start to fall out, and your treatment is repeated every four to six weeks until your hair stops growing altogether.
