Getting rid of unwanted hair isn’t just about how you look; it’s also about how you feel. If you have hair in unwanted places, you’re probably tired of plucking, shaving, waxing, and other irritating forms of hair removal that you have to repeat again and again. Laser hair removal from Madison MediSpa is a safe and effective option for permanent results. We use BroadBand Light (BBL) treatment and laser removal to help make your skin soft, smooth, and youthful. Cosmetic hair removal does more than just remove hair from the body. Both laser and BBL technology use light energy to effectively disable hair follicles from producing more hair in the future.

The most frequent question we receive about these procedures is, “How many sessions for laser hair removal?” We have to perform treatments during each follicle’s active growth cycle for them to be effective. Because not all follicles have the same growth cycles, a series of treatments may be required to meet your goals. If hair does regrow from treated areas, it will be finer and lighter than before. Our hair removal full body treatment technologies are effective on almost every area of the body, excluding the eyes and surrounding areas. If you need all-over hair removal or in a small, defined zone, we can do that.

Laser Hair Removal: Full Body Packages and More

Removing unwanted hair is a relatively fast procedure with laser hair removal. Full body sessions take longer, but appointments can be as short as 15 minutes. This makes it possible to do hair removal full body treatments without a huge time commitment. 

Almost any area can be treated, including:

  • Lips
  • Chin
  • Beard
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area, including Brazilian treatments

We offer various packages to make treatments as convenient and cost-effective as possible.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal is a safe, non-invasive procedure that harnesses the power of light energy to disable hair follicles. Dark hairs contain a high pigment content that absorbs the heat from the laser. The hair then transfers that heat down into the follicle, preventing new hair from growing.

Traditionally, laser hair removal was considered most effective for people with contrasting hair and skin colors. Because we use both laser and BBL technologies, we can treat all skin types and tones.

How Many Sessions Will I Need? 

During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your hair removal needs and work with you to create a treatment plan to meet your goals. How many sessions for laser hair removal depends on several factors. 

We strive to give every patient an accurate assessment so they can be fully prepared when treatment begins. Sessions may take 15 minutes to two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area and the amount of hair that needs to be treated.

We will give you a full set of instructions for preparation and aftercare. Typically, we ask that you stop other types of hair removal, full body or in smaller areas, at least two weeks prior to your appointment. Please come to the clinic with clean, bare skin — no makeup, lotions, or perfumes.

There’s no downtime required with laser hair removal. The treated area may feel slightly warm after your procedure. Avoid using any harsh cleansers or exfoliants on the treated areas until healing is complete. You should also avoid intense sun exposure and use sunscreen to keep skin fully protected.

What Is BBL Phototherapy?

We are pleased to offer our patients BBL HERO phototherapy technology. BroadBand Light uses intense pulsed light to treat skin discolorations, smooth fine lines, and create a more even texture and tone on the skin. We also treat spider veins and other small skin imperfections with BBL.

Darker pigments, such as those found in sunspots, absorb the intense pulsed light from the handheld phototherapy wand. The heat created by the light causes the targeted cells to die, and as they slough off, new, more youthful skin is revealed.

Benefits of BBL include:

  • Fast treatments — we can treat large areas of the body in a short time
  • Comfortable procedure — a cooling mechanism keeps patients comfortable
  • Safe treatment — almost all body areas can benefit from BBL

During your BBL session, we will apply a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable. We use the most current BBL HERO technology that quickly delivers short pulses of high-intensity light to targeted areas. BBL treatments also have a cooling technology to prevent overheating.

Most patients return to their daily routines immediately after their BBL treatment. You can expect to see smoother, more vibrant skin in as little as two weeks after the first treatment. 

The total number of sessions required depends on your personal goals. However, because we use the upgraded HERO technology, you may notice visible results after only one session. With proper aftercare, which includes good sun protection, results can last up to a year. 

Combining BBL with laser hair removal (full body or smaller problem areas) results in skin that looks rejuvenated and feels silky smooth.
