A Guide to Laser Hair Removal

If you have coarse, excessive, or unwanted body hair, you should consider visiting a medical spa for laser hair removal treatments. Laser hair removal is much more effective and long-lasting than waxing, tweezing, or shaving. While it may take multiple sessions, you can attain permanent hair removal, and remaining body hair will become lighter, finer and less noticeable. Keep reading for some important information on laser hair removal.

Laser Hair Removal in St. Louis

Benefits and Results
Laser hair removal procedures use a small, highly precise laser to remove unwanted hair from the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, back, hands, feet, and butt. The lasers used are able to target dark, coarse hair while leaving the surrounding skin healthy and undamaged. The majority of patients have complete and permanent hair loss in the treated area after three to seven sessions.

What to Expect During the Procedure
Prior to your laser hair removal treatment, the hair that will be treated is trimmed to a few millimeters in length. The laser is adjusted to match the color, thickness, and location of the hair that will be treated. Your skin will be protected and numbed with cold gel and a cooling device, and you will need to wear protective goggles. Your doctor, aesthetician, or dermatologist will treat small areas of skin, and then monitor the skin's reaction before moving on to another area. After the procedure, you will be given ice packs, and anti-inflammatory painkillers and creams. Most patients report that the procedure itself is no more painful than being snapped by a rubber band, or having a mild sunburn.

Recovery Period
For a few days after the procedure, your skin may appear red. You may experience a mild burning or stinging feeling. You may use cold compresses, moisturizers, and ibuprofen to ease your discomfort.
