How does laser hair removal work?

Excess body hair is caused by factors like genetics and ethnic background. While shaving and waxing are common methods of hair removal, they can be tedious and often result in razor bumps and ingrown hairs. Additionally, these methods are temporary and need to be repeated frequently. Laser hair removal is a long-lasting solution that uses laser energy to disable the follicle, preventing the hair from growing back.

Rejuvenation Wellness Center offers top tools and technologies to ensure your laser hair removal treatment is as effective as possible. Laser treatment can be used on many areas, including the arms, legs, chest, back, and bikini line. The number of laser sessions needed varies based on the area being treated and the amount of hair present, but most people see results after just a few appointments.

How do I prepare for laser hair removal?

There is no need to prepare your skin for laser hair removal, and rejuvenation Wellness Center has a state-of-the-art laser system that is gentle and effective. However, we encourage you to avoid sun exposure and tanning beds before treatment. Harmful UV rays can greatly increase your risk of skin damage and discoloration. We also recommend avoiding plucking or waxing the treatment area in the weeks leading up to your appointment in Plainview, NY.

What happens after laser hair removal?

No downtime is required after laser hair removal, and you can resume your normal activities almost immediately. Most patients experience some redness and swelling after laser treatment that subsides within a few hours. Patients can protect their smooth skin and improve their results by following our post-treatment guidelines. These may include:

  • Continue to avoid UV exposure as directed

  • Apply a cool compress to the treatment area

  • Use a topical cream or ointment

  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing

  • Take over-the-counter pain medication if needed

Does hair grow back after laser treatment?

Laser hair removal provides long-lasting results, but patients should understand that some hair growth may eventually return. Of course, any new follicles will likely be much lighter and finer than before. The length of time in between sessions varies from person to person, but touch-up treatments can help maintain your outcomes and prevent unwanted hair from returning.

Remove unwanted body hair with laser treatment

Shaving is the most common way to achieve smooth skin, but it can be tedious and often results in ingrown hairs. Waxing is also popular, but it may be painful for people with sensitive skin. Laser hair removal is a great option for individuals who are tired of temporary or ineffective hair removal methods.
