What can I expect during the laser hair removal treatment?
At Lux Skin Lasers, our team has extensive training in the application of various lasers for laser hair removal. During your initial consultation, we will determine which laser will provide the best results and create a plan for your treatment.
We will ask you to refrain from shaving, waxing, or plucking hairs in the targeted area for several weeks prior to your treatment. During your session, you will be seated comfortably in a treatment chair and given goggles to protect your eyes. Most of our patients do not find the treatment very uncomfortable. Our esthetician will then place a hand piece against your skin and begin the treatment session. The hand piece is moved to a new location and the laser is activated again until the entire treatment area has been covered. GentleLASE is equipped with an advanced skin cooling mechanism that is used throughout the treatment to protect the surface of your skin and ensure your comfort.
What can I expect after treatment?
After your treatment session, you will be able to resume normal activities immediately. If needed, you can apply an ice pack to soothe the treated area and calm the skin. For the first few days, avoid exfoliating or scrubbing the skin and use gentle cleansers instead of abrasive ones. You will also need to avoid sun exposure during the entire course of your treatment to prevent the risk of pigmentation changes. Most of our patients require 6 to 7 treatment sessions, spaced at 3 to 8 week intervals. During your initial consultation, we will give you an idea of how many sessions will be required.
