What to Expect During a Laser Hair Removal Treatment
All of our laser hair removal treatments are performed in our Denver, Colorado med spa locations. During a laser hair removal treatment, a beam of light penetrates a follicle of hair and targets the dark pigment. The light disables the hair during its growth stage, which stops growth. Eventually, your body will push the disabled hair through the skin in a few days. Because your hairs are in different stages of growth, multiple treatments are required. Most patients require 6-8 laser hair removal treatments.
This is a medical procedure, so it is important to make sure that you use a licensed clinician. All of our laser specialists are licensed and have performed hundreds of procedures and have undergone certification.
Most of our lasers will treat an area of about the size of a quarter. If you are treating small areas, like lips, it will only take a few minutes. On the other hand, if you are treating large areas like legs or your back, it can take an hour or more. We advise all of our clients to hold off on plucking and waxing for a period of six weeks before treatment.
Some discomfort during the procedure is normal, but we take steps to reduce the discomfort. Our lasers have a cooling tip and we can also provide you with cooling gel if you desire.
The cost for a laser hair removal treatment varies based on the size of the area that is treated and the number of treatments required. Give our experienced team a call at Laser Beauty Works for more information.
