Laser Hair Removal Q&A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an aesthetic treatment that uses laser energy to destroy the hair follicle under your skin to stop further growth. It’s one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States. 

Dr. Johnson uses a cutting-edge laser tool for laser hair removal, treating many areas of the body, including:

  • Upper lip
  • Underams
  • Forearms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Buttocks

Laser hair removal at Rejuvenation For Her is safe, effective, and comfortable and available for all skin types. 

What do I do to prepare for laser hair removal?

Dr. Johnson gives you specific instructions on what you need to do to prepare for your laser hair removal. She first asks that you stop plucking and waxing the hair in the treatment area for six weeks before your treatment. These hair removal strategies disturb the hair follicle, making laser hair removal less effective.

She also requests that you avoid the sun and tanning lotion six weeks before you start treatment to improve results and prevent unwanted side effects. 

You can continue to shave your hair, and Dr. Johnson requests you shave the morning of your laser hair removal. 

What can I expect during laser hair removal?

At Rejuvenation For Her, Dr. Johnson takes an individualized approach to care. She customizes your laser hair removal based on the area undergoing treatment, your skin type, and your beauty goals. She reviews the details of your treatment at your consultation, so you know what to expect.

Laser hair removal may take anywhere from 5 minutes to more than an hour, depending on the  size of the treatment area. You may feel a snapping sensation when the laser hits your hair follicle. Dr. Johnson can adjust your treatment plan if you’re sensitive to pain.

You can resume your normal routine after your laser hair removal. However, laser treatment makes your skin more sensitive to the sun, and Dr. Johnson requests that you protect your treated skin with clothing or sunscreen to prevent hyperpigmentation.

When will I see the results of laser hair removal?

You may see improvements in your skin soon after your first laser hair removal session. However, hair grows in cycles, and Dr. Johnson recommends a series of 2-6 treatments every 4-12 weeks. She also provides touch-up treatments as needed.
