What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is an aesthetic treatment that gets rid of unwanted hair so you don’t have to pluck, shave, or wax anymore. The team at Premier Wellness uses the Icon system, which is an advanced laser that removes your hair quickly and without pain. It’s also safe and effective on all skin types.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal works by destroying the hair follicle so it doesn’t grow any more hair. During your session, the laser energy has the ability to target the follicle without causing any damage to your surface skin.
The team at Premier Wellness offers laser hair removal on your:
- Lips and face
- Arms and underarms
The team can also use the gentle Icon laser to perform a Brazilian, which is the removal of all the hair from your bikini area.
Do I need to prepare for laser hair removal?
Yes. In order to get the most effective treatment, your specialist provides guidelines to follow before you start your laser hair removal. Because the laser acts on the hair follicle, you need to avoid plucking or waxing the hair at least one month before treatment. However, you can shave and may be instructed to shave the treatment area before your laser hair removal session.
What can I expect during treatment?
Your laser hair removal treatment at Premier Wellness is painless with the Icon laser. Treatment time varies depending on the area being treated but usually doesn’t take more than an hour.
There’s no downtime following laser hair removal, but you should protect the area from the sun with regular use of sunblock or covering up with clothing.
Because your hair grows in cycles, you need more than one laser hair removal session to get the smoothest results. Your specialist creates an individualized treatment plan before you get started so you can properly prepare.
Laser hair removal permanently destroys the hair follicle, but it can’t prevent new follicles from growing. The team at Premier Wellness recommends you come in as needed for additional laser hair removal treatment to help keep your skin smooth and free of unwanted hair.
Your time is valuable and you don’t need to waste it removing unwanted hair when laser hair removal can get rid of it forever. To schedule your laser hair removal consultation, call Premier Wellness today or request an appointment online.
