Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How do laser treatments work for hair removal?

Laser hair removal systems use beams of light that are highly concentrated. The light beams specifically target the darker pigment (melanin) at the base of your hair follicles.

In your hair follicle, the pigment absorbs the light and causes heat and damage to the follicle. The hair falls out and your hair growth is inhibited, leaving you with significant hair reduction and smoother skin.

Laser hair removal works to remove hair on many areas, including your:

  • Legs
  • Underarms and arms
  • Bikini line
  • Back
  • Face

Modern laser systems can even safely remove hair on sensitive areas like the bikini line. Some people might experience a mild pinching sensation, but the laser hair removal procedure is well-tolerated.

Some people choose to have topical anesthetic for more sensitive areas, but local anesthetic isn’t required.

When can I expect results from my laser hair removal treatment?

Typically, more than one laser hair removal treatment is necessary for the best results. Most people have noticeable hair loss after three to seven sessions with each session spaced around four to six weeks apart.

When you can expect optimal results from your laser hair removal depends on your hair and skin type and how your body responds to the laser treatment.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal provides numerous benefits. If you feel like you’re spending too much time shaving unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is a solution that saves you the time you’d spend shaving.

The Icon laser provides permanent hair loss for most hair colors and skin tones. The system delivers fast pulses that can quickly treat smaller areas, such as the upper lip, in just a few minutes, and larger areas like the back in less than half an hour.

The laser system is completely safe and protects your surrounding skin and tissues while targeting your hair follicles.

After your laser hair removal treatment, you can return to your daily activities. Your Studio Saai Skincare and Medspa specialist might recommend using a special sunscreen in the treated areas that frequently have sun exposure. You might experience mild redness in the treated area, but it should subside within a day or two.
