Laser Hair Removal

16-04-2015

¡With Boston spring now in full swing, you should consider treating yourself to laser hair removal!

Are you wondering what to expect from your laser hair removal experience at The Laser Skin Center Medical Spa in Boston’s Back Bay? Here is a quick primer.

Preparation & Timing:

  • Discontinue waxing and tweezing six weeks before your first laser hair removal treatment; however you can continue shave or use depilatory products. Also, use sunscreen on any exposed areas.
  • Right before your first visit shave the area to be treated.
  • Plan on five to ten separate laser hair removal treatments, each scheduled between four and six weeks apart.
  • Treatment session length depends on the size of the area to be treated. Smaller areas such as upper lip, sideburns or chin, can take just a few minutes, while larger areas like the back or legs can take up to an hour.

 During Treatment:

  • Laser hair removal can cause some discomfort, which has been described as similar to pin pricks or rubber bands snapping against the skin.
  • All of the laser hair removal machines used at The Laser Skin Center Medical Spa in Boston incorporate some form of proprietary skin chilling technology. We also offer topical anesthetics to numb the area prior to treatment. 

 Post Treatment:

  • You might experience some residual pinkness and/or irritation of the treated area after your session. This is normal, but you may use ice packs to calm the skin.
  • By three weeks post treatment, you should see a decline in hair growth and you will begin shed the hair that was in the growing phase cycle, which looks like blackheads or stubble that is being released through the hair follicle.
  • Be sure to follow these post treatment procedures: exfoliate with a scrub or washcloth in the shower three times a week. Only cut or shave hair regrowth--don’t tweeze, pluck or wax. Continue to use sunscreen.
