What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a quick, easy, and comfortable way to eliminate unwanted hair from your face and body. For some people, the treatment even permanently removes the hair. Laser light targets hair follicles and disrupts the growth cycle. Hair simply falls out, leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Laser Hair Removal?
We recommend laser hair removal for the:
- Bikini area
How is Laser Hair Removal Performed?
Our laser hair removal treatment is performed with a special handheld device. Laser light is applied in short bursts to target the hair follicles. The laser is only absorbed by the hair follicle, and not by your skin. Heat from the laser warms the follicle and damages it so it falls out. You may notice that some hairs are still intact after the treatment. These follicles are in the early stages of growth and will fall out over the course of a few days or weeks.
Laser Hair Removal Recovery
No recovery is needed after laser hair removal. You can return to your normal activities. We may recommend a follow-up treatment a few weeks after your first treatment to remove any remaining hairs. After a few sessions, you will notice that the hair grows back thinner and lighter. It is also sparser than before the treatment.
Do Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
Compared to other types of hair removal, laser hair removal is very comfortable. Additionally, you won’t have stubble or skin irritation that is common with shaving. Administering the laser light feels like snapping your skin with a rubber band.
Will I Still Need to Shave After Laser Hair Removal?
You won’t need to shave or wax the area after laser hair removal. In fact, we recommend that you not use these two techniques because the hair may grow back darker and thicker than with laser hair removal alone. If you notice hairs growing in the treatment area, schedule a follow-up treatment.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The cost of laser hair removal is based on the size of the treatment area and characteristics of the hair. We provide details about pricing during your consultation. At Colorado Ophthalmology and CosMEDics, we strive to keep our prices affordable, and we also offer financing options for our services.
