Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal is the perfect solution for those looking for permanent hair reduction. While you may continue to need regular touch-ups, laser hair removal requires less overall maintenance and upkeep compared to other hair removal options.

What is laser hair removal?

A laser hair removal treatment delivers low-level laser energy to the hairs you no longer want. The pigment in these hairs will absorb the laser energy, which kills them while leaving the surrounding skin safe. The once growing hairs will slowly fall out over time. Patients typically will require a minimum of six treatments over six to twelve months to obtain their full results. However, once patients get their results, they are semi-permanent.

What benefits does a laser hair removal treatment offer?

Laser hair removal stops hair growth wherever you have the treatment, with permanent hair reduction with regular maintenance treatments. Laser hair removal reduces the number of hair follicles and their ability to produce hair for less hair growth over time (even between treatments!).

What areas can laser hair removal treat?

A laser hair removal treatment can eliminate unwanted hairs from all parts of the body. Common treatment areas include

  • Face
  • Arms
  • Axilla
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Areola
  • Back
  • Brazilian

Laser hair removal treatments are safe for sensitive skin, the chest, areolae and bikini areas. You will need to have a minimum of six sessions to get the results you want. The number of sessions you need will depend on your hair’s thickness and other factors. Your medical provider will recommend the ideal course of treatment after your consultation and a discussion of your goals.

Do I qualify for laser hair removal?

Laser treatments often cannot treat blonde, white, red or gray hairs effectively because they lack enough pigmentation to absorb the applied laser energy. As a result, individuals with darker hairs tend to make better candidates for this procedure. If you do not qualify for a laser hair removal treatment, your Spa Sydell medical provider will recommend alternatives to improve your concerns.

Laser Hair Removal Questions

What do I need to know before laser hair removal?

  • Avoid sun exposure and antiobiotics for 2 weeks ahead of treatment
  • Shave the treatment area before your visit. Do not pluck or wax the hairs as laser hair removal treats the hairs, not empty follicles

Does laser hair removal have any recovery?

While you will have mild symptoms similar to a sunburn immediately after your laser hair removal treatment, most patients find that these symptoms do not interfere with their normal routine. These natural and temporary side effects will naturally resolve in a few days. Your medical provider will recommend that you wear sunscreen for the next few weeks to continue to protect your skin.


When will I see my laser hair removal results?

Post-treatment temporary redness, tenderness and swelling usually subside within a few hours. Over the next week, treated hairs will begin to push themselves out of your hair follicles. It will take a minimum of six treatments and six months to a year to achieve optimum results. Once optimal results are obtained, we recommend having regular maintenance treatments to prevent new hair growth.


How long will my results last?

Individual results vary. However, most patients can enjoy permanent hair reduction in treated areas with regularly scheduled maintenance treatments. Your medical provider will recommend the best schedule for you based on your hair type and goals so you can continue to enjoy your look.


What can I expect during laser hair removal treatment?

Your treatment, once underway, will feel like repeated snapping sensations on the skin. These sensations are mild, and most patients do not require any pain relief. Afterward, your treatment will conclude with ice or cold water to soothe the treated area. Your skin may look and feel sunburnt after laser hair removal, and you may use cold compresses to increase your comfort. Sunscreen is also a must to protect the treated skin. If you wear makeup, you may do so safely to mask these natural and temporary side effects.

How much does laser hair removal cost?

Pricing is determined based on treatment area.
