How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

You may be wondering how laser hair removal differs from other hair removal treatments. By using a high-powered Sciton Broad Band Light and laser energy, we can target your hair at the root. Traditional hair removal methods may not reach that far, allowing your hair to grow back quickly. Laser hair removal destroys the hair follicle under your skin to prevent future regrowth. However, it only works when your hair is at a certain stage in the growth cycle.

During the hair growth cycle, your hair goes through three phases of growth: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. Laser hair removal is only effective against hair in the Anagen or growing phase. Your hair goes through all growth phases at the same time. Therefore, you will need more than one treatment to permanently destroy all your hair.

You may see regrowth between sessions. This is the hair that has not been destroyed yet. After a few sessions, you can enjoy smooth, hair-free skin for longer. 

Permanent Hair Removal

If laser hair removal destroys hair at the root, is it a permanent hair removal treatment? After the required number of sessions, most of your hair will be gone for good. You may notice some regrowth. However, the hair is usually finer and sparser than before. Compared to other hair removal treatments, laser hair removal results are long-lasting. 

Laser hair removal destroys your hair follicles forever, making it a permanent hair removal treatment. If you notice hairs on the treated area after a while, you can schedule a touch-up session with us. These follow-up sessions will be quicker and less frequent than your initial treatment sessions. 

Bikini and Brazilian Treatments

Your bikini area is often the most challenging place to remove hair. You may experience ingrown hairs, rashes, and sensitive skin. We understand this is frustrating and even painful. We offer bikini and Brazilian hair removal services. It is highly effective at keeping your intimate areas free of hair. You can enjoy smooth skin without the usual pain and discomfort. 

What’s Best For You?

We need to create a customized treatment course to map out your hair removal sessions. The best way to do this is with an initial consultation. You can visit us in Waunakee, WI, to discuss your desired outcome. This is also a great time to ask questions about the treatment. We look forward to meeting you! 

How Long Do Treatments Take? 

Most laser hair removal is quick and easy. A session can be anywhere between 15-120 minutes, depending on the size of the area and the number of areas we are treating. Of course, it will take longer to remove hair from your legs than your upper lip. We can also split your treatments up to treat different areas at different times if you prefer shorter sessions. 

As we mentioned, touch-up sessions will be much quicker since there is less hair to remove. Keep in mind that laser hair removal will save you time and money in the long run. Although one session can be 120 minutes long, it is still more efficient than shaving every week or waxing every few weeks. 

How Many Treatment Sessions Do I Need? 

Since we can only treat the hair in the active Anagen phase, we need to schedule more than one treatment. The treatment course will be different for each patient. On average, patients need 4-8 laser hair removal treatments with 6-week intervals between them. Spacing the sessions apart is a vital part of your hair removal treatment. It helps us reach as much hair as possible as it goes through the various growth stages. 

Once your treatment course is complete, you can schedule follow-up sessions as you require them. After your final treatment session, you will notice significantly less hair growth. This means you can enjoy long-lasting laser hair removal results.

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful? 

Laser hair removal is not entirely pain-free. However, it is less painful than waxing or plucking your hair and won’t result in ingrown hairs and irritable skin. The sensation can be compared to a rubber band snapping on your skin. In general, patients are able to tolerate this sensation easily. At the end of the day, most patients feel it offers more relief than shaving and waxing.
