Laser Hair Removal
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure in which your provider uses laser energy to eliminate hair follicles and prevent future hair growth in undesirable areas, such as your:
- Upper lip
- Bikini area
Laser hair removal reduces the need to shave, wax, pluck, or use electrolysis. It can help you gain confidence, giving you a better quality of life.
Is laser hair removal right for me?
To find out if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal, the team at Ovation Wellness reviews your medical history, discusses your desired outcome, and examines areas of your face or body containing unwanted body hair. They let you know if the procedure is a good match for your personalized needs.
How should I prepare for laser hair removal?
Follow your provider’s pre-procedure instructions prior to undergoing laser hair removal at Ovation Wellness. Protect your skin from the sun, avoid sunless tanning creams, and don’t pluck, wax, or use electrolysis for several weeks. Stop taking certain medications if your doctor recommends it and shave the treatment area the day before your scheduled procedure.
What should I expect during my treatment?
During laser hair removal, you rest in a comfortable chair in a relaxing room and wear goggles to protect your eyes from the laser’s light. Your provider applies a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to numb it so you don’t feel any discomfort.
Using a handheld device, the team applies laser energy to targeted areas of your skin to inhibit hair follicles. Treatment can last just a few minutes for smaller areas, or over an hour for larger surface areas.
What happens after laser hair removal?
After laser hair removal, you might experience some redness or swelling. You can apply ice to the treatment area or take over-the-counter medicine to reduce discomfort as needed. Protect your skin from the sun and don’t use tanning beds.
The Ovation Wellness team might recommend a series of two to six laser hair removal treatments combined with periodic maintenance sessions to give you optimal, long-lasting results. Over time, unwanted hair sheds over a period of several days and weeks.
