5 Things You Need to Know About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is finally here at Revive Med Spa and today we’re giving you a closer look at this highly sought out procedure. Let us help you get rid of any unwanted hair today!

1. Does laser hair removal get rid of ingrown hairs?


Ingrown hairs are arguably one of the most annoying byproducts of shaving. Because laser hair removal targets hair growth at the follicle, it is the most effective way to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs, leaving you with beautiful smooth skin.

2. How long does laser hair removal last?


Although laser hair removal greatly slows down the hair regeneration process, it is not permanent. This means that although the hair grows back much slower and finer, touch-up sessions will be necessary.

3.How much does laser hair removal cost?


The exact cost of laser hair removal can vary depending on the area the hair is being removed from. Although this procedure can seem far more than the price of a razor or waxing, because of the long lasting effects of laser hair removal, it will not only save you money in the long run but it will also save you time.

4. Does laser hair removal work for all skin tones?


Thanks to technological advancements, newer machines are able to safely and effectively differentiate hair as long as it is darker than the skin color. Hair color is what matters.

5. Is laser hair removal painful?


Though many patients report little to no pain, experiences may vary due to varying levels of pain tolerance. Many people say that it feels like a small zap (if they feel it at all).

Other things to know: 

  • Shaving before your appointment is required
    Long hair can make the treatment less effective therefore we ask all clients to shave the area prior to their appointment. We can shave for you, however, there will be an additional fee. 
  • Your skin will need time to heal
    We recommend that patients who have undergone laser hair removal keep the treated areas out of the sun. This is important to keep in mind if you are someone who does a lot of outdoor activity as this could affect the time of year you decide to get this procedure done.
