What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal sets you free from the cycle of shaving or waxing by providing long-lasting to semi-permanent hair removal. The treatment involves directing a laser at the hair follicles. The laser’s wavelength specifically targets the pigment in the hair shaft, damaging the follicle to inhibit hair growth.

Because different follicles are continually entering different stages of their growth cycles, a series of laser sessions is typically scheduled to target the maximum number of follicles. Our experienced laser technician will provide you with safe and non-invasive treatments that let you enjoy smooth, silky skin anywhere on your face or body!

Below, we outline some things to avoid before treatment and general guidelines for pre-treatment care. Laser Hair Removal Preparation:

  • Stay out of the sun and apply sunscreen. Sunburned skin cannot receive laser treatments.

  • When you come in for a laser session, make sure the skin in the treatment area is free of lotion, makeup, deodorant, or other topical products.

Stop the Growth Cycle

Your Laser Hair Removal Procedure

During a laser hair removal appointment, your Skinn Suite aesthetic specialist directs a laser over the treatment area. They will expertly target specific areas of hair growth for precise removal. The laser emits concentrated light that is absorbed by the pigments in the hair follicles. This inhibits their ability to grow. Most Burbank laser hair removal patients experience a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin but describe it as tolerable. The length per session will vary depending on the areas being treated, with appointments usually lasting between 15 minutes and one hour.

Laser Hair Removal Results

Most people see noticeable results after the first few laser sessions, with a significant reduction in hair growth. It’s important to understand that laser treatments do not always result in complete hair removal. However, any hair remaining grows in much finer and lighter.

Achieving optimal results usually requires multiple sessions spread over several weeks to target hair in different growth cycles. Occasional maintenance sessions are sometimes necessary. Overall, laser hair removal drastically reduces hair growth, delivering silky smooth skin you can enjoy every day. 

How to Ensure Optimal Results

Laser Hair Removal Recovery and Aftercare

Side effects are typically minimal and include redness and mild swelling. Post-treatment care following laser hair removal focuses on protecting the skin, which will be more sensitive after a laser session.Laser Hair Removal Aftercare:

  • Avoid the sun and other kinds of UV light for a week after treatment.
  • Do not engage in strenuous activities or expose yourself to excessive heat until any post-procedure redness has faded. 
  • Do not pick or scratch at the skin, as this can impair good healing.
