Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal uses the latest medical technology to help you get smooth, hair-free skin – permanently. Using a laser, hair removal experts at Better U Skin and Body Care Medical Spa can target unwanted hair, leaving your skin soft and smooth. Their laser hair removal treatment can be used virtually anywhere on your body, including

  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Face
  • Arms
  • Chest

How does laser hair removal work?

Better U Skin and Body Care Medical Spa has chosen the Ellman Cheveux™ Diode Laser for their hair removal treatments because of its proven effectiveness in delivering consistent, impressive results.

A hair removal expert targets the laser’s concentrated light energy into unwanted hair follicles. Because the hair follicle is darker than the surrounding skin, it absorbs the laser’s energy. As it absorbs more energy than it can safely hold, the follicle begins to break down, eventually becoming completely destroyed.

Once the hair follicle is destroyed, it is no longer able to produce hair. This leaves you with smooth, hair-free skin in the treated area.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Most patients report that laser hair removal is significantly less painful than waxing or tweezing. They say the sensation is similar to having a rubber band lightly snapped against your skin. If you feel uncomfortable, Better U Skin and Body Care Medical Spa can use a numbing cream to help you relax during your treatment.

You may experience some redness and tenderness at the treatment site right after your visit. This is completely normal and will go away on its own within a few hours.

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

Each laser hair removal treatment targets your active hair follicles. Unfortunately, not all hair follicles are active all the time. By spacing out a small number of treatments, usually between four and six weeks apart, your skin removal expert can maximize your results, giving you permanently smooth skin.

The number of treatments you need depends on your individual hair and skin, but between three and seven treatments will usually deliver the results you want. Touch-up treatments are available as needed to maintain hair-free skin, should any dormant hair follicles activate after your scheduled treatments are complete.
