What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser therapy is now being utilized in several areas of medicine for its ability to target underlying skin and tissues without compromising the integrity of the skin surface. Laser hair removal harnesses controlled laser energy that emitted into the skin, targeting the pigment of the hair follicles. Once underneath the skin, the laser energy converts to heat, disabling the follicles and preventing future hair regrowth.
At Juvanni Med Spa®, our medical team has extensive training in laser technology, ensuring results that are professional, predictable, and long-lasting. Our laser technology treats multiple areas on the body, including the:
- Upper lip
- Bikini areas
For male patients who do not want to remove all of their hair, laser hair removal can also be an effective way to thin out areas of excess hair such as the arms, chest, and back.
Is the Hair Permanently Gone?
As hair follicles go through three different phases of growth, it may take multiple sessions to effectively disable all treated hair follicles depending on the areas being treated. Shaving, plucking, and waxing only temporarily remove hair shafts from the skin; they do not prevent the future regrowth of hair. Laser hair removal is one of the most permanent solutions to unwanted body hair, keeping your skin smooth and silky.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with all laser treatments, the skin may appear flushed or pink akin to a sunburn , which should subside within a day or so after treatment. Unlike other hair removal techniques, laser hair removal typically does not result in ingrown hairs or damaged skin, although various shades of hair and different skin types may require further evaluation before treatment is approved.
Results may vary, and during your consultation our medical team will advise you on how many laser hair removal sessions you may need in order to achieve your aesthetic goals.
