Laser Hair Removal Q&A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the medical cosmetic treatments offered at Good to Great: Medical Cosmetic Solutions. It reduces or eliminates unwanted hair from almost anywhere on your body, including:
- Bikini line
Laser hair removal isn’t recommended for use around the eyes.
The laser system works by emitting pulses of light into the hair follicles. The pigment in your hair follicle absorbs the light, which heats and destroys it to prevent further hair growth.
Because hair grows in cycles, we may recommend a series of treatments to get the best results. Good to Great: Medical Cosmetic Solutions offers individual treatment pricing as well as package discount pricing for your laser hair removal treatments.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
When you visit Good to Great: Medical Cosmetic Solutions for a laser hair removal consultation, we conduct an in-depth evaluation to fully understand your needs.
We then tailor a personalized laser hair removal treatment plan, which includes steps on how to properly prepare for your sessions.
We may recommend you stop plucking and waxing at least two weeks before you start your laser hair removal. These hair removal practices temporarily take out the hair root, which may affect the results of your laser hair removal treatments.
You also need to avoid sun exposure for up to two weeks before your sessions to reduce the risk of post-treatment complications, such as skin darkening.
What can I expect during laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal at Good to Great: Medical Cosmetic Solutions is quick and easy. After your initial preparation, we move the wand-like handpiece over your skin. The handpiece emits a light that disables the hair follicle.
The laser has integrated cooling to keep you comfortable so you feel minimal pain or discomfort during your treatment.
What happens after laser hair removal?
You may have mild redness and tenderness in the treated area shortly after you complete your laser hair removal session. However, these side effects shouldn’t interfere with your normal activities, and they generally subside in a day.
Over the next month or so, you should notice a reduction in hair in the treated area. We recommend you keep your treated skin protected from the sun with sunscreen or clothing.
Once you finish your laser hair removal sessions, we may recommend periodic touch-up treatments to keep your skin smooth and hair-free.
