Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair treatment?

Laser hair treatment is an innovative procedure that uses laser technology to remove unwanted hair and reduce the amount of regrowth in an area. A laser is a precise tool that damages the hair follicle without harming the surrounding skin. Laser hair removal offers smooth, silky skin in a few short treatments.

Does laser hair reduction hurt?

Most people don’t find laser hair removal to be painful. If you have sensitive skin, you might experience some minor discomfort, but laser hair treatments are short, and your discomfort should end as soon as your session is over.

What areas can be treated with laser hair treatments?

The specialists at Contours LaserSpa have the training and expertise to use the laser tool to remove unwanted hair from almost anywhere on your body. The most common areas for laser hair reduction include:

  • Eyebrows
  • Upper lip
  • Jawline
  • Chin
  • Arms
  • Armpits
  • Legs
  • Hands and feet
  • Back
  • Navel and abdomen
  • Bikini line

Because laser technology doesn’t cause pain like electrolysis or waxing, it is often used for sensitive areas, such as the Brazilian bikini line.

How many laser hair treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed depends on your individual skin and hair type, and your personal goals. In general, a minimum of 3-6 laser hair treatments is necessary for optimal results.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

A series of laser hair treatments can significantly reduce the amount of unwanted hair that grows in the treated area. The experts at Contours LaserSpa have the skills to achieve maximum hair reduction for long-lasting results and skin that looks beautiful and feels lovely to the touch.

Are there any risks?

Laser hair removal is FDA-approved and considered to be very safe. Mild side effects may include redness, irritation, swelling, or itching, but these usually go away within 48 hours.

Be sure to follow your specialist's instructions following your laser hair treatment, and avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight for at least seven days.
