Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a treatment that Estea Medspa offers to give you smooth, hair-free skin wherever you want it. It’s an alternative to waxing, shaving, and other hair removal techniques that require a painful process and/or regular upkeep. For many people, the results of laser hair removal are permanent.
Your Estea Medspa provider can perform laser hair removal virtually anywhere on your body. It’s an extremely effective way to remove hair from your:
- Bikini area
- Face (e.g., upper lip, chin)
If you have unwanted hair, don’t hesitate to ask your Estea Medspa provider if laser hair removal is right for you.
How does laser hair removal work?
The Estea Medspa team uses the Gentlemax Pro® laser during this treatment because it’s safe for all skin types. It sends laser energy into your hair follicle, heating it. This heat permanently destroys the hair follicle. Once fully treated, the hair follicle won’t produce any hair in the future.
The laser works best when it can hone in on the hair follicle easily. It does this by differentiating the darker hair follicle from the lighter surrounding skin. As a result, laser hair removal is most effective for people with dark hair and light skin.
With the Gentlemax Pro, though, the team at Estea Medspa is able to perform laser hair removal for all skin types.
What should I expect during laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is fast and designed with your comfort in mind. Most people say it feels a little like a rubber band snapping lightly against your skin. The treatment takes anywhere from a few minutes for small areas to a couple of hours for full-body hair removal.
The laser can only target hair follicles when they’re actively growing hair, and not all of your follicles grow hair all the time. To ensure the maximum amount of hair follicles get laser treatment, Estea Medspa usually recommends between 3–5 treatments spaced a month or two apart.
For the best results, it’s important that you don’t tan before your laser hair removal appointment. That way, your skin is as light as possible, helping the laser identify your hair follicle so it can destroy it.
