Laser Hair Removal Q&A

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure in which a high-tech laser directs light energy to the exact area of your body where you want to remove hair. The pigment in your hair absorbs the thermal energy, damaging your hair follicle without harming the surrounding skin. The laser treatment inhibits the damaged follicle from regrowing hair.

Since hair grows in stages and only responds to the laser during the active growth stage, you will need more than one treatment.

What areas can laser hair removal treat?

Laser hair removal is so technologically advanced today, it’s safe on nearly every area of your body where you’d like to remove unwanted hair. The latest lasers work on nearly every skin color and hair color as well.

The most common treatment areas include:

  • Upper and lower legs
  • Bikini area
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Back and chest
  • Neck and shoulders
  • Face
  • Abdomen

As the laser energy treats the active hair growth during each session, the hair grows back less and less and usually much finer than before, especially for those with coarse hair.

What can I expect during a laser hair removal treatment?

During a laser hair removal session, a member of Dr. Santa-Cruz’s medical spa team moves a handheld laser device over the surface of your skin to deliver the laser energy. Lasertique Spa uses the Pain-Free Hair-Free™ laser system that removes hair faster, more comfortably, and with fewer visits than many other types of lasers.

The Pain-Free Hair-Free laser system is virtually pain-free, long-lasting, and requires no downtime. It takes just a few minutes to treat a small area like your upper lip or underarms. Larger areas like your legs, back, and chest may take longer, but the whole procedure typically lasts an hour or less.

The Pain-Free Hair-Free system doesn’t usually cause your skin to appear sunburned or tender to the touch after treatment, making it a simple, effective, convenient method for permanently removing unwanted hair.

Call the office or schedule an appointment online to take the first step toward being hair-free without the hassle.
