About Laser Hair Removal
Hair removal with a laser has become one of the most popular elective services in the United States. It's a convenient option for the long-term reduction of unwanted hair on the face and/or body. This laser treatment frequently leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother and produces longer-lasting results compared to other hair removal options. At Versailles Medical Spa in Darien, CT, we perform safe and effective Lumenis LightSheer laser hair removal treatments for both women and men in frequently needed areas, like the arms, back, legs, face, chest, and intimate areas.
Is Laser Hair Removal For You?
Lumenis LightSheer laser hair removal is a safe process that is effective for many people. In your initial consultation, we will talk about your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted hair on their face or body
- Want to stop using other hair removal techniques (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, or bleaching)
- Have light skin and dark hair
- Are in good, overall health
- Are not pregnant or actively trying to conceive.
During the procedure, the medical provider will cleanse and shave the area to smooth out the skin to provide a direct pathway between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The laser beam will focus on and destroy the hair follicle, preventing it from growing back. Most people initially will require at least 9 treatments over 4 – 6 weeks to achieve your best results. Your appointments are spaced out to give the affected areas a chance to heal. This also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to cycle into the active growth phase so the laser is effective. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Versailles Medical Spa targets only the hair follicle, preserving the skin in the treatment area.
Your Laser Hair Removal
Although this procedure is mostly gentle, the treated areas of your skin may look like it has a mild sunburn and could swell. Usually, these symptoms subside after a couple of hours. If your skin starts to have a reaction immediately after the procedure, our providers may apply a topical cream to the treated area to help it heal. There is no downtime to laser hair removal, once your treatment is done you are able to return to your daily activities, however you should refrain from immediate overly sun exposure, swimming and saunas to allow the area to heal.
