Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an advanced cosmetic treatment for men and women that uses laser energy to reduce the appearance and growth of unwanted hair.

Treated areas include:

  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Bikini area
  • Back 
  • Chest
  • Upper lip
  • Chin 

Laser hair removal can be used anywhere on the body to remove unwanted hair except for around the eyes due to the risk of injury.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by penetrating your hair follicle with highly concentrated light, causing the pigment in the follicle to soak up the light, which destroys the hair and prevents future growth.

During your treatment, the laser aims at the dark pigment of your hair follicle, and the heat of the laser destroys it without harming the surrounding skin.

The team of professionals at Suburban Medical & Wellness Center uses the Elite+™ by Cynosure laser cosmetic machine for laser hair removal; however, the advanced technology can also treat spider veins, reduce the appearance of scars, and offer skin tightening and renewal.

How do you prepare for laser hair removal?

It’s important to limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for four weeks before your treatment. Leaving the roots of your hair exposed allows the laser to remove them.

Are there side effects from laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a safe procedure, but one or two days after your treatment, you may experience the feeling and appearance of a sunburn around the targeted area. On extremely rare occasions, you may see blisters, especially if your complexion is dark.

At Suburban MedSpa, your safety is always regarded with the highest level of importance so you can be confident and at ease.
