What Will My Skin Look Like After Laser Hair Removal?
Shaving, waxing, and other traditional hair removal techniques can be a regular hassle and rough on the skin. Even worse, the skin is still riddled with stubble. At The Skin Lab, our team works with individuals throughout Owensboro, KY to provide them with numerous ways to enhance the natural beauty of their skin. Registered nurse Taren Jarvis and her experienced team are equipped to provide highly tailored laser hair removal sessions to remove unwanted hair for a sleek finish.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure used to remove unwanted hair from various parts of the body. Our team utilizes Soprano® ICE technology to safely disable hair follicles without damaging or burning the skin. Laser hair removal treatment can be used just about anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, armpits, legs, arms, back, and intimate areas. At The Skin Lab, Taren and her team assess the current condition of your skin to determine if you can safely undergo laser hair removal treatment sessions.
Benefits of laser hair removal
Laser hair removal provides men and women with multiple benefits, including:
- No need for waxing, shaving, or plucking
- Long-lasting results
- A highly customized treatment experience
- Near painless treatment
- Removing hair from almost any portion of the body
- Quick and easy treatment with no downtime
- Smoother skin
What will my skin look like after laser hair removal?
Since laser hair removal technology targets hair follicles, each hair structure is removed at its root. This provides the patient with smoother skin without the stubbles left from shaving or other techniques that only remove hair above the surface of the skin.
Am I an ideal candidate for laser hair removal?
You may be a viable candidate for laser hair removal if you:
- Are in good general health
- Have healthy skin
- Are looking for long-lasting hair removal results
Taren will evaluate your skin and review your medical history to determine if laser hair removal is an appropriate treatment approach for you. Patients with specific skin conditions or active infections may not qualify.
What the treatment session looks like
Each patient attends their scheduled appointment at The Skin Lab, where Taren and her team will administer the Soprano ICE laser to each treatment site. Although the Soprano ICE emits a cooling sensation, patients typically feel a mild stinging sensation as the laser is passed over the skin. A local anesthetic is available for added comfort and ease. Once your treatment session is complete, you may leave our office and resume normal daily activities.
Will my hair grow back after laser hair removal?
In some cases, stray hairs may grow back after laser hair removal treatment. This is because a few hair follicles may be dormant and not responsive to laser technology until a later time. For most individuals, laser hair removal produces long-lasting results.
How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?
We recommend that patients participate in at least 3 – 5 sessions spaced over a period of 3 – 4 weeks. This treatment schedule helps capture all hair follicles at each treatment site to produce desirable outcomes.
