Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a safe procedure that is effective for most patients. During your consultation, we will go over your concerns, needs, and goals to help decide if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal:

  • Have unwanted facial or body hair
  • Want to stop using other techniques for hair removal (waxing, shaving, depilatory creams, bleaching)
  • Have darker hair with lighter skin
  • Are in overall, good physical health 

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

On the day of your appointment, you will be asked to lie in one of our treatment rooms as areas of your face and body being treated are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and lotions. During the procedure, a team member will slightly stretch the skin to create a clear path between the hair follicle root and the laser. The energy from the laser will focus on and disable the hair follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again. On average, you will need a handful of treatments over a month or more to get your best results. Your sessions are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to recover. It also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to change to the active growth phase so they can be treated. The specialized laser technology we use at Rejuvenation Wellness Center is able to target only the hair follicle, which preserves the skin and other tissue in the treated area.

What should I Expect after Laser Hair Removal?

Although the treatment is relatively gentle, your skin may look like it has a mild sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you are able to go back to your daily activities, but you need to refrain from exercise or extended time outdoors for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. At home after your treatment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or ice packs to minimize any mild discomfort.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

How much does laser hair removal cost?
Getting laser hair removal will vary in cost depending on the size and number of areas being treated, in addition to the number of sessions recommended in your consultation plan to attain a smooth result. As you consider the benefits of choosing laser hair removal, we recommend estimating the energy and time you currently spend on waxing, shaving, or other temporary methods. As you run the comparison, you will likely find that laser hair removal is typically more cost-effective and will save you energy and time long-term. We will create a treatment plan for you that includes the total number of appointments you need and pricing options to consider.

Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal is an effective treatment for long-lasting improvements. While you can enjoy the results of the procedure for years, laser hair removal is considered semi-permanent since some hair follicles may not be affected by the laser. Regardless, patients find most of their hair will become dormant after their treatment plan is done, and if stray hairs pop up, it's very easy to manage. More laser treatments can be needed to address new growth and any stragglers.

Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair follicles grow in phases. While some follicles are growing, other follicles are resting. Since each hair follicle grows in various stages, several treatment sessions are usually recommended to target each hair follicle when it is growing. Scheduling your treatments scattered throughout a few weeks should help you get better, smoother results.

Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal at Rejuvenation Wellness Center can cause some discomfort, but it is not too painful. Most patients may feel a small sting when the laser zaps the hair follicle. Dr. Natalia Levinskaya may use a numbing ointment on the surface of the skin prior to the start of the treatment. Patients who are used to getting waxed have stated that laser hair removal is more comfortable compared to a normal waxing session.

Which laser is best to remove hair?
There are many lasers available. Our Plainview, NY practice is proud to offer cutting-edge hair removal technology for women and men of varying hair types. The laser we invested in provides excellent results, but we upgrade our equipment as different lasers enter the marketplace. We encourage you to ask us about our laser system during your laser hair removal consultation.

How long does laser hair removal take?
The duration of laser hair removal treatments at Rejuvenation Wellness Center in Plainview, NY can vary depending on various factors, including the size of the treatment area and the color of the hair being targeted. Smaller areas, such as the upper lip or underarms, may take only a few minutes to treat. Larger areas like the legs or back may require more time, typically ranging from 30 minutes to an hour per session.
