How does laser hair removal work?
The providers at Garcia Weight Loss Aesthetics & Hormone Therapy use some of the most up-to-date technology to administer laser hair removal. The Inmode Diolaze is unmatched in effectiveness, patient comfort, speed, and safety.
The device uses energy that targets the dark pigment within hair follicles. The laser energy penetrates the outer layer of your skin and does not damage its integrity.
The laser energy destroys the ability of hair follicles to grow hair.
What areas can laser hair removal treat?
Laser hair removal is effective just about anywhere you have unwanted hair. This includes your:
- Bikini area
- Upper lip and chin
- Arms and legs
- Back, and chest
Both men and women appreciate laser hair removal. You can get more than one area treated in a single visit.
How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?
The exact number of sessions you need depends on the thickness and density of your hair and the size of the area being treated. Most people see clear skin in 4-6 treatments, but some people may need more.
Your provider from Garcia Weight Loss Aesthetics & Hormone Therapy customizes your treatment plan at your first visit and gives you an idea of how many sessions to prepare for.
What do I need to do before laser hair removal?
Before laser hair removal, avoid any methods of hair removal that remove the hair root for six weeks. This includes waxing, plucking, and electrolysis. You want the hair root to be present for laser hair removal to work. You can shave before your appointment.
You should also minimize sun exposure before your visit, as tanned skin is harder for the laser to treat. Your avoidance of the sun continues after treatment, too, because your laser-treated skin is more sensitive.
Will laser hair removal hurt?
The Inmode Diolaze laser is one of the most comfortable laser hair removal treatment devices available. During your session, expect to feel tingling and some heat. The laser has a cooling mechanism that intermittently sends bursts of air during your session to protect your outer layer of skin.
After treatment, your provider offers cooling ice packs and gels to ease discomfort. Most people find laser hair removal quite tolerable.
