Laser Hair Removal Questions Answered: Our Esthetician Spills the Tea

Considering laser hair removal but have some lingering questions? You're not alone! We understand the importance of making informed decisions about your body. That's why we've tapped into the expertise of our Esthetician to address your most common concerns. This blog post dives deep into everything you need to know about laser hair removal!

Q: Is laser hair removal safe?

A: Yes, laser hair removal is generally safe when performed by a qualified professional using appropriate equipment. However, as with any medical procedure, there's a small chance of side effects such as blistering, burning, or peeling. Here at Age Management, we prioritize safety and use advanced laser technology to minimize these risks.

Q: Does laser hair removal work for everyone?

A: Laser hair removal is most effective for individuals with lighter skin tones and darker hair colors. However, there's good news! Our Diolux laser is specifically designed to treat a wider range of skin tones and hair colors than traditional lasers.

Q: Is laser hair removal permanent?

A:While laser hair removal isn't truly permanent, it significantly reduces hair growth. You'll likely experience a dramatic decrease in hair density, and some hair follicles may be permanently destroyed. However, maintenance treatments may be necessary to maintain long-lasting results.

Q:Why are appointments spaced 4 weeks apart?

Hair growth occurs in cycles, and laser hair removal targets follicles in their active growth phase. Spacing appointments 4 weeks apart ensures we target all hair follicles throughout their growth cycle for optimal results.

Q: How painful is laser hair removal?

Many patients describe the sensation during laser hair removal as similar to a rubber band snap. At Age Management, your comfort is our priority. Our Diolux laser is adjustable to your comfort level, has a built-in cooling head, and we offer numbing cream for extra sensitive areas.

Q: What areas can be treated with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can be used on most areas of the body. We offer a comprehensive menu of treatment areas. If you have any questions or concerns about a specific area, a consultation with our esthetician is recommended to determine if you're a good candidate.

Q: What should I do before and after laser hair removal?

Before your appointment, we recommend exfoliating the treatment area and shaving the hair. This ensures the laser targets the follicle and not the hair itself. We'll provide detailed pre- and post-care instructions during your consultation.
