Why now is a good time for laser hair removal

Even though it seems far away, summer will be here before you know it, ushering in the perfect weather for sundresses, shorts and swimsuits. That’s why now is a good time to get laser hair removal and achieve the beautiful, silky smooth skin you’ve always wanted. Read on to learn more about laser hair removal and how it works.

How does laser hair removal work?

Our state-of-the-art laser technology effectively and gently removes hair of many different colors and type from all skin tones. It works by targeting a beam of light through the skin to the hair follicle, which absorbs the heat from the light. The heat destroys the hair follicle, which reduces the hair’s ability to reproduce. Hair will fall out within 10 days to three weeks after treatment. Most people need a minimum of 5-6 treatments to achieve optimal results.

Why do you need multiple treatments?

Your hair grows in different phases. The laser technology used in laser hair removal targets and treats hair in its active growth phase. About 20-30 percent of hair is in the active growth phase at a given time, which is why you’ll need multiple treatments.

What is recovery like?

You may experience minor redness and swelling at the treatment site, which lasts a few hours or up to a few days in some cases. A cool pack and creams may be applied to help prevent irritation. You’ll want to avoid the sun for the next few weeks and use a recommended sunscreen when you’re outdoors.

How do I prepare for treatment?

If you are interested in getting laser hair removal, you will want to avoid sunlight for 4-6 weeks before the treatment and use a good sunscreen as recommended by your licensed aesthetician. Bring a list of medications to your consultation and be sure to discuss any medical concerns or conditions with your aesthetician. Avoid other hair removal methods as directed.

Laser hair removal is a great way to remove unwanted or excess body hair and help you show off smoother skin during warm-weather months. Call 425-455-2131 today for a consultation.

  • All employees, visitors and patients are screened daily with health questions and temperature scans by our medical team.
  • Any Brilliant Distinction points should be redeemed prior to your appointment. After all transactions, the credit card terminal will be disinfected.
  • Hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap is available in each examination room, receptionist station, waiting room and restroom.
  • We will be cleaning exam chairs after each patient, all surfaces, ophthalmology lamps, and computer key boards after every patient.
  • If you do not feel well, we will be rescheduling any and all patients who don’t feel their best and/or suspect possible exposure. Please know this is for the safety of other patients and staff.
  • The office will continue to follow its regular disinfecting protocols for the front desk counter, waiting room counters, restrooms and door handles.
  • Our large facility and multiple patient rooms should accommodate social spacing to minimize unnecessary contact.

We will be scheduling patients far enough apart to provide an atmosphere where you will feel that your clinic provider is just there for you. We will be doing our best to practice social distancing. We appreciate your patience and understanding so that we can create a positive environment where you can come to your appointment and feel comfortable.
