Laser Hair Removal Q & A

Laser Hair

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an aesthetic treatment that uses laser technology to destroy the roots of individual hair follicles wherever you have unwanted hair.

Laser hair removal is an effective, permanent way to get smooth, hairless skin without painful waxing and constant shaving. It works for any area where you have unwanted hair, including the:

  • Legs
  • Chin
  • Upper lip
  • Arms and armpits
  • Bikini area
  • Back 

Laser hair removal uses a handheld device to focus light energy at the roots of the hairs inside individual hair follicles. Laser-generated heat is absorbed via the hair's pigment cells and damages the follicle so it can't regrow hair. Over time, the treated hairs fall out naturally.

While laser hair removal is especially useful for patients with light skin and dark hair, it works for all skin types and most hair colors. Serendipity Lifestyle & Wellness Spa uses a laser that is safe for all skin types, especially BIPOC individuals who want to have hair removed without the fear of burning their skin.

What can I expect during a laser hair removal session? 

Laser Hair

Your laser hair removal begins with an initial consultation where Dr. Warfield discusses your goals and individualized treatment plan. 

During your laser hair removal session, you are seated comfortably. Dr. Warfield prepares your skin by using a cooling gel that prevents discomfort or damage to the surface of your skin.

You and Dr. Warfield both wear protective eyewear, and she uses a handheld device to target each hair. Sessions usually last 15-60 minutes, depending on the size of your treatment area. The thicker the hair in your trouble spots, the longer your session. 

Most people don't experience pain, though you may feel a mild snap or pop as Dr. Warfield applies the laser energy to each area. Most people tolerate this very well, but if you're uncomfortable, let Dr. Warfield know. 

How soon can I see results? 

Laser Hair

For effective laser hair removal, treatment must occur during a specific phase of your hair growth cycle. Because hair follicles don't all grow at the same rate, each area needs multiple treatment sessions to get optimal results. 

Typically, a treatment plan involves about 6-10 sessions with 4-8 weeks between sessions. Once your treatment plan is complete, you won't ever have to shave or wax again. 

If you have unwanted hair, the team at Serendipity Lifestyle & Wellness Spa is skilled and experienced at helping you achieve permanently smoother skin anywhere on your body.
