The Pain-Free, Hair-Free Laser hair Removal Treatment
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser — an intense, pulsating beam of light — to remove unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.
What are the Benefits of laser hair removal?
Precision: Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Speed: Every pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs all at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Predictability: 90% of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of 4-6 treatments.
Why choose Motykie Med Spa?
Doing Laser hair removal is more than just ”zapping” unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure requiring training, experience and expertise. At Motykie Med Spa you know you are in safe hands with credentialed technicians performing the procedure, in the comfort of our state-of-the-art medical spa.
What can you expect?
We recommend that you come to the office with a fresh shave of the area being treated. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.
A cold gel is applied to protect the outer layers of your skin and to help the laser light penetrate the skin. When the procedure is completed, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory ointment, or cold water to ease any discomfort.
For a day or two afterward, the treated area of your skin will look and feel like it’s sunburned. Cool compresses and moisturizers help. If your face was treated, you can wear makeup the next day. Over the next month, your treated hair will fall out. Wear sunscreen for the following month to help prevent temporary changes in the color of the treated skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I do before the treatment?
If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should stop all plucking, waxing, and electrolysis 4-6 weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking. We also recommend that you avoid sun exposure or actively tanning for 6 weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.
Is it safe?
Laser hair removal is the most popular aesthetic procedure performed annually. Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry’s most eminent and widely researched uses of lasers and the Pain-Free, Hair-Free treatment has provided safe and effective permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide. Because Pain-Free, Hair-Free utilizes our IN-MOTION and low-heat settings we’re able to provide a level of safety unlike any other laser hair removal procedure. Blisters are extremely rare but are more likely in people with darker complexions. Other potential but very rare side effects are swelling, redness, and scarring.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, 4-6 treatments are adequate to provide permanent hair reduction. Treatments are scheduled 4-8 weeks apart depending on the area of the body being treated. Treatments are received until hair stops growing. After a one-on-one consultation, we may determine that based on the density of your hair, hair color and skin color, you may require less or additional treatments.
Will my hair ever grow back?
Actively growing hairs that are treated should not grow back. Once a hair follicle is damaged it cannot grow hair. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for patients to have a touch-up 1-2 years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes.
Why do I need 4 – 6 treatments?
Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (actively growing hair), Catagen (regression), and Telogen (resting, not growing). Laser hair removal only affects the Anagen stage, (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately twenty-five-percent of hair is removed with each treatment. After 4 to 6 treatments, the area should be free from hair.
Do I need to arrange time off from work for treatments?
No. Just like a massage, facial or hair-cut, Pain-Free, Hair-Free has no “down time” and requires no recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work, school or other normal activities immediately.
How do I know it really won’t hurt?
Most people find the Pain-Free, Hair-Free laser hair removal treatment comfortable, especially when compared to other hair removal methods and lasers. This is one of few laser hair removal procedures where numbing cream is not necessary. If you find that you are typically sensitive and have a low tolerance for discomfort, simply talk to us about applying numbing cream prior to treatment for complete comfort.
“After menopause I noticed that I had more facial hair. It was on my chin and my upper lip. The terrible hairs were so thick I used my husband’s razor to get rid of them. Nothing else helped. After my Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ treatment my hair is gone and I feel so much better about my appearance.”
