Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an advanced treatment that reduces unwanted hair on your face or body. It’s also one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the nation, and is backed by significant research. 

At Hush L.A. Medspa, laser hair removal is performed using the Gentle Max Pro®, a dual-platform laser manufactured by Syneron Candela, a leader in the laser technology industry. A great deal of research and effort went into selecting the best possible technology to deliver great results without compromising your health. 

How does laser hair removal work?

The process behind laser hair removal is simple. The treatment laser delivers carefully controlled beams of concentrated light into your skin. Your hair follicles absorb that light, which is then converted into heat. 

The heat damages the hair follicle, inhibiting the production of new hair. The hair cells already present within each treated follicle will shed or fall out in the days and weeks after your treatment, and new growth will be considerably less. 

The technology behind the Gentle Max Pro laser ensures the surface of your skin remains at a comfortable temperature. The laser can also be adjusted if you experience discomfort during your sessions. 

What is it like to get laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal requires no advance preparation, no anesthesia, and no recovery time. During your treatment, you may feel a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band as the laser heats each hair follicle. Many men and women, however, report very little sensation during treatments. 

After your appointment, you may experience some mild redness or swelling in the treatment area, which will quickly subside. You should avoid sun exposure and immersion in hot water as your body adjusts. 

Is laser hair removal a cost-effective choice?

Laser hair removal may seem more expensive than other hair removal options at first glance. When you take a long-term view, however, the value of laser hair removal becomes more clear.

To begin, all those razors, shaving creams, wax strips, depilatory products, and trips to the salon aren’t free. Those costs really add up over time. There’s also the issue of dealing with razor rash and ingrown hairs. 

Your time is also valuable, and traditional hair removal efforts take considerable time. It can also be inconvenient to remove unwanted hair every day or so, or in advance of a big event. Laser hair removal delivers lasting results in just a few short appointments.
