Understanding Your Treatment
This procedure uses photodynamic light energy to target the dark pigment in hair follicles. Once the follicle is heated, it is disabled and hair re-growth is diminished. Only hair that is in the active phase is affected so multiple sessions are required to achieve complete results.
Our patients in the Kansas City metro area request laser hair removal to eliminate unwanted hair from areas such as:
- Bikini area
Laser hair removal is a great cosmetic treatment for men who want to minimize stubble and look polished and professional day after day. Many people also combine laser hair removal with other skin care treatments to pamper their newly hair-free skin.
What to Expect
One of our licensed estheticians will evaluate your skin and hair color to determine if laser hair removal will work for you. The laser hand piece is carefully guided over the treatment area, delivering the laser energy to the hair follicles without harm to the skin. Most people typically describe this process as a light stinging sensation comparable to a rubber band snap. The total procedure time varies depending on the size and number of areas treated.
After laser hair removal, you can return to your normal activities. You may notice some redness or sensitivity immediately after treatment. These side effects are temporary and should fade over the next several hours. The treated hair falls out within a week or so, and hair that was inactive during treatment should grow in. Subsequent treatment sessions are needed to fully remove all hair until the desired results are achieved.
