Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Noninvasive laser hair removal at the Center for Women's Health and Aesthetics employs innovative laser technology to destroy hair follicles, causing hair fall out permanently. 

Choosing laser hair removal can save you time and money in the long run by eliminating the need for shaving, waxing, plucking, and electrolysis.

What is laser hair removal used for?

The Center for Women's Health and Aesthetics team can use laser hair removal to get rid of unwanted hair on your:

  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Chest 
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Bikini area
  • Face 
  • Upper lip

The procedure can get rid of undesirable hair just about anywhere on your body without pain or downtime.

How should I prepare for laser hair removal?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal, your provider reviews your medical history, examines your skin, and discusses your desired outcome. Follow your provider’s instructions to prepare for the procedure, including: 

  • Shaving the treatment area the day before 
  • Protecting your skin from the sun
  • Avoiding sunless tanning creams
  • Abstaining from plucking, waxing, or electrolysis 
  • Skipping certain medications

Properly preparing for treatment ensures you experience the best outcome.

What happens during laser hair removal?

During laser hair removal at Center for Women's Health and Aesthetics, you relax in a comfortable chair. Your provider gives you glasses to protect your eyes from the laser and applies numbing cream to your skin.

They use a handheld device to emit laser energy to the treatment area. Numbing cream diminishes a warm pinprick or rubber band snapping sensation associated with the laser. 

Your treatment might last 10 minutes for small areas or more than 60 minutes for larger or multiple areas.

What should I expect after treatment?

After laser treatment, expect some swelling or redness but no downtime. You can apply ice to the area if you’d like. Make sure to protect your skin from the sun. Over the next few days and weeks, hair begins to fall out. 

Multiple laser hair removal treatments at the Center for Women's Health and Aesthetics will be most effective for long-lasting results.
