Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an innovative choice when it comes to removing or reducing body hair. While body hair is natural and you may not ever be able to stop its growth entirely, laser hair removal allows you to enjoy smooth hairlessness for longer periods of time than shaving or waxing and permanently reduce regrowth.

During a laser hair removal procedure at Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center, your provider uses a concentrated beam of single-wavelength light to target melanin, or pigment, in each hair follicle. 

The laser heats the hair follicles that produce and grow your body hair to disable them and stop their production. 

The existing hair vaporizes as a result of the heat, leaving you hairless when you exit the clinic. The procedure isn’t painful, but your provider might give you a topical anesthetic if you’re worried about discomfort.

What areas of body hair can I remove with laser hair removal?

With laser hair removal, you can target nearly any area of skin that you normally shave or wax. Patients of Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center frequently get the treatment to quickly and evenly remove the hair on their:

  • Chest
  • Back
  • Arms 
  • Legs
  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Jawline

When shaving such large or abundant areas, it’s hard to get an even result. You might leave patches and notice them later in the day when you can’t easily access your razor or waxing kit.

Laser hair removal eliminates such pesky issues. Your provider can treat large areas without missing awkward patches or hard-to-reach areas. It usually takes six initial sessions before you can achieve a permanent reduction or full removal of your body hair.

Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an enticing option, but it isn’t the best choice for everyone. You discuss the pros and cons of an initial consultation at Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center.

You might be a great candidate for the procedure if you:

  • Don’t have any active rashes or skin flare-ups
  • Don’t have open wounds
  • Haven’t gotten a tan recently
  • Have hair that’s darker than your skin
  • Can commit to multiple treatment sessions

The results of laser hair removal aren’t the same for everyone, but they’re easy to predict once you start on your treatment plan. 

To find out if you can toss your razor, tweezers, and home waxing kits in favor of laser hair removal, book a consultation at Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center by phone or online today.
