Laser Hair Removal Q & A
How does laser hair removal work?
With the Excel HR laser hair removal system, your aesthetician directs energy into your hair follicles, heating them up and destroying them. The system delivers precise pulses only to the targeted area without harming surrounding tissue.
The Excel HR laser has a cooling system for your comfort, but you may feel a snapping sensation during your procedure.
Where can I have hair removed?
The team at Revive Medical Spa, LLC uses the Excel HR laser for unwanted body hair in the following areas:
- Bikini line
In fact, the laser technology is safe enough to use almost anywhere on your body, except around your eyes.
How do I need to prepare?
It’s important that your aesthetician is able to visualize your hair follicles, so refrain from waxing or plucking your hair for a few weeks before your first laser hair removal appointment. You can still shave, since that only cuts the shaft of your hair, leaving your follicles intact.
How many treatments do I need?
The answer to this depends on the size of the area where you’d like hair removed. During your initial consultation, your aesthetician reviews the areas you want to tackle and comes up with a timeline for hair removal.
Bear in mind that your appointments are spaced six to eight weeks apart so your aesthetician can make sure to get to all of the follicles in your target area. Not all hair grows at the same time, and some follicles may be dormant. By waiting six to eight weeks in between appointments, it allows time for all of your follicles to reveal themselves.
How long do results last?
Results of laser hair removal vary from one person to the next. Some people enjoy several years of hair-free skin, while others may regrow hair within a year. Whether it’s one year or five years down the road, all you need is a touch-up generally.
