Laser Hair Removal Q & A

Why choose laser hair removal?

Lasers have transformed many areas of medicine and aesthetics, and hair removal is no exception. Laser hair removal harnesses the power of concentrated beams of light to eliminate unwanted hair and give you soft, smooth skin.

Many men and women choose laser hair removal because they’re tired of the never-ending hassle of shaving, waxing, plucking, or using depilatory creams. Laser hair removal allows you to achieve lasting effects with just a few brief treatment sessions.

Is laser hair removal expensive?

Getting laser hair removal requires an initial investment, but will save you money in the long run. Waxing strips, depilatory creams, high-quality tweezers, and threading or salon services add up. Nice razors aren’t cheap, and low-quality razors are uncomfortable or ineffective.

When you factor in the value of the time it takes you to address unwanted body hair daily, you can see why laser hair removal is among the most highly sought-after laser services.

What does laser hair removal feel like?

Elation MedSpa & Laser Center uses the GentleMax Pro, which is among the most advanced options of its kind currently available. GentleMax Pro combines the 755nm Alexandrite and 1064nm Nd:YAG lasers to deliver results that were impossible just a few years ago.

GentleMax Pro treats multiple hairs with each burst, reducing your treatment time. A brief cooling cryogen spray keeps your skin at a comfortable temperature during treatment, reducing any discomfort.

You might feel a brief stinging or tingling sensation during the pulses, but the sessions shouldn’t be painful at all. If you have especially sensitive skin, the team may apply numbing cream prior to your treatment.  

Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Early lasers were not very good at treating highly pigmented skin, because they had difficulty distinguishing between pigments in the skin and targeted hairs. As a result, men and women with darker skin tones were told they were not good candidates for the procedure.

GentleMax Pro, however, is a next-generation laser with the capacity to treat all skin tones. It can also be used on any part of your body, giving you plenty of options.
