Sick of shaving? Laser hair removal may be just what the doctor ordered. Read on to learn how it works, who it can help, and what to expect during a laser hair removal treatment.

Plus, discover which laser hair removal special we’re currently offering!

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

With laser hair removal, beams of pulsating light target and break down hair’s dark pigment. Within 10-14 days, this hair falls out. Because several follicles of hair are treated at the same time, large areas of the body can be targeted with the laser in just one session.

What Can I Expect During a Laser Hair Removal Session?

laser hair removalDuring laser hair removal, one of our experienced aesthetic technicians will apply the laser to the area you want treated. The laser will damage the hair follicles, preventing hair from growing back.

The process is relatively painless, feeling similar to a warm pinprick.

The length of your appointment will depend on the size of the area being treated. Smaller areas—like the upper lip, for example—can be treated in just a few minutes. Treatment of the legs or back takes longer, and your appointment may run closer to an hour.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions Will I Need?

Typically, it takes 4-6 laser hair removal sessions to get the results most patients desire.

However, a whopping 94% of patients find the procedure well-worth it.

What Laser Hair Removal Special Are You Offering?

At Esteem Medical Spa, we’re currently offering an amazing special. If you buy a series of six laser hair removal sessions in a primary area (arms, abdomen, back, bikini, chest, legs, shoulders, or underarms), you’ll receive a series of six treatments on your upper lip, chin, hairline, or ears—for FREE!

Who Makes a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal typically works best on fair-skinned people with dark, coarse body hair. People with darker skin tend to absorb more of the laser light into their skin, rather than into the hair follicle itself.

The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal is to schedule a complimentary consultation.
