What Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
At your hair removal procedure, you can relax in a private treatment room as the areas of your face and body being treated are washed to remove dirt, oil, and creams. During laser hair removal, a team member will smooth out the area to provide a clear path between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. At Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa, we use the state-of-the-art Lutronic Clarity II™ to perform laser hair removal while preserving the skin and other tissue in the area being treated. The laser's energy will focus on and destroy the hair follicle, preventing the hair from growing again. On average, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to get your optimal results. Your appointments will be spaced out in order to give the treated areas time to recover and allow time for follicles in the dormant phase of growth to change to the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. After your session, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from strenuous activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for a period of a day to let the treated areas recover. You may look and feel like you have a sunburn, but this shouldn't last too long.

Laser Hair Removal FAQ
Is laser hair removal permanent?
An effective treatment, laser hair removal offers long-lasting improvements. While patients can enjoy the benefits of the procedure for many years, it's technically semi-permanent because some follicles may continue growing. However, patients find the majority of the hair will be gone after their treatment plan is complete, and even if a few hairs pop up, it's easier to deal with. More laser hair removal treatments can also be needed to address any stragglers or new growth as well.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair growth happens in cycles. When some hair follicles are growing, others are dormant. Since every follicle grows in various stages, multiple treatment sessions are usually recommended to target each follicle when it's in a growing phase. Getting your sessions over several weeks helps you get better, smoother results.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Your laser hair removal session can cause mild discomfort, but it isn't considered painful. Patients will feel a small snap when the laser zaps each hair follicle. Your technician can apply a numbing ointment on your skin prior to the treatment session. For patients who are used to getting waxed, they think laser hair removal feels more comfortable than a normal waxing session.
