Laser Hair Removal

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a lasting method of removing unwanted hair. It’s an effective approach that works on virtually all areas of your body, including:

  • Back
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Face
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures and is both safe and effective. If you’re tired of the hassle of shaving every few days, the discomfort of waxing and the inconvenience of ingrown hairs or razor burn, laser hair removal is definitely worth consideration.

Best Impression Med Spa uses the Vectus® laser from Cynosure® for laser hair removal treatments. The platform offers reliable results and has an impressive record of safety and quality.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by damaging treated hair follicles to impede the growth of new hair. During sessions, your Best Impression Med Spa practitioner moves the treatment handpiece over the surface of your skin.

The laser pulses carefully controlled beams of light that penetrate your skin. That light is drawn to the melanin in your hair, which is the pigment that gives your hair color. As the melanin absorbs the light it becomes heated, which damages the root at the base of each hair follicle.

During each treatment session, this process damages many of the targeted follicles, impeding future hair growth. You’ll need multiple sessions to achieve optimal results, but there will be a noticeable reduction in regrowth after your first treatment.

Is laser hair removal painful?

A patented cooling technology keeps the surface of your skin at a comfortable temperature during treatment sessions. As the laser pulses, you may feel a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band against your skin, although some men or women report virtually no sensation.

After treatments, your skin may be sensitive for a few hours and might feel as though you’ve had a sunburn. Avoid hot baths or using lotions or creams to give your skin a chance to normalize.

If you have sensitive skin, a numbing cream can help make your sessions easier to tolerate. Just mention your concerns to the Best Impression Med Spa team during your consultation or when you schedule your session.
