What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a medical spa treatment that uses a concentrated beam of light to target the melanin in the hair follicle. The light destroys the follicle, which prevents the hair from growing back. This treatment can be used on any area of the body where unwanted hair growth occurs.
How Does Laser Hair Removal in Charlotte Work?
Laser hair removal treatments at LightRx in Charlotte are performed by our professional cosmetic technicians. Your technician will first clean the treatment area and then apply a gel to help the laser light penetrate the skin. A hand-held laser device will be passed over the treatment area multiple times to target the hair follicles, removing hair at the source. This helps to prevent future growth of unwanted hair on the treatment area.
How You Can Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
Before your treatment, it is important to avoid sun exposure for at least four weeks prior to your appointment. This will help ensure that the laser targets only the hair follicles and not the surrounding skin. It is also important to avoid waxing or plucking the treatment area for at least six weeks prior to your appointment. This will help ensure that the hair follicles are intact and can be targeted by the laser.
What You Can Expect From Your First Laser Hair Removal Treatment
During your first treatment, you can expect the area to be cleaned and a gel to be applied. The laser will then be passed over the treatment area multiple times. You may feel a warm sensation during the treatment, but this is normal and should not cause any discomfort. After the treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling in the treated area, but this should subside within a few hours.
