Laser Hair Removal

Plucking, tweezing, waxing, and shaving can be frustrating and have unwanted side effects, so many people choose laser-based techniques instead to enjoy smooth, clear, and hair-free skin. Laser hair removal is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures in the United States. With laser hair removal, Rockland, Maine’s team of dedicated registered nurses at Skin Klinic & Day Spa can get rid of unwanted hair on the face and other areas of the body, including the legs, back, underarms, arms, and bikini line.

Not sure whether laser hair removal is the right hair removal technique for you? The Skin Klinic team is available to answer your questions and help you decide which treatment is most suitable for you based on your goals. We will guide you through each step of laser hair removal to help deliver satisfying results.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

There are close to five million follicles on the typical human body. The hair that grows from these follicles serves many purposes, including keeping us warm and providing some protection against stressors in the environment, like water, sunlight, abrasion, and strong chemicals.

Not everyone wants or enjoys all of their hair, however. Some people enjoy the smooth look of bare skin in certain areas or all over. Routine shaving can be a repetitive chore. Body hair can even be uncomfortable depending on a person’s outfit, activities, and other factors.

Laser hair removal is a treatment that directly targets the follicles that grow unwanted hairs, using light to shut down hair production for long-term results.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal works on a deeper level compared to other methods—like shaving—and gets to the underlying source of the issue: the hair follicles themselves. The laser device delivers pulses of highly concentrated energy into the skin, where the light is absorbed by pigmented cells in the follicles. This generates localized intense heat, which harms the hair follicles so that future hair growth is delayed or prevented.

Laser hair removal won’t kill the hairs for good, but it does slow the hair growth process for a considerable amount of time. It can also cause future hairs to grow in lighter and finer.

There are several benefits of laser hair removal, including its precision, its ability to target large areas of hair, and its reliability.

What Can Laser Hair Removal Treat?

Laser hair removal is a way of getting rid of unwanted hair on almost every area of the body, with the exception of the eyelids or skin that is tattooed. The licensed and registered nurses at Skin Klinic & Day Spa have extensive knowledge and many years of experience in providing safe, effective laser treatments. For those who might be wondering, “Is laser hair removal the best option for me,” the first thing you should do is meet up with one of our qualified providers, who can explain what you can expect from the laser hair removal process.

With laser hair removal, you can avoid the razor bumps and acne-like breakouts associated with other hair removal techniques. The treatment also prevents ingrown hairs, which can be a problem after shaving and other manual hair-removal techniques.

Why Choose Skin Klinic & Day Spa for Laser Hair Removal?

Our registered nurses at Skin Klinic & Day Spa are trained in medical aesthetics and handle each stage of the laser treatment process. We strive to provide the most aesthetically pleasing results for patients in a safe, comfortable environment.

What Is the Laser Hair Removal Experience at Skin Klinic & Day Spa?

Each laser hair removal session is delivered with precision and care by our Skin Klinic & Day Spa team. Our registered nurses aim to help each patient achieve the best possible results while ensuring that they are comfortable. A topical numbing solution will be applied to the skin around 20 to 30 minutes before the laser treatment begins, and a cooling gel may also be used during the session to minimize the risk of heat-related side effects. Patients may feel a warm, pinprick sensation when their skin is being treated, but the brief discomfort is typically handled well by patients. The length of the treatment itself can range from a few minutes to an hour depending on the size of the area being treated.

What Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal Recovery and Results?

It’s normal to notice some swelling and redness for the first few hours after laser hair removal. Your skin will feel as if it has been sunburned for a day or two. Moisturizers, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, and cold compresses can help to provide relief from any discomfort patients might experience. Our registered nurses can advise you on techniques to avoid pain and reduce side effects, although the symptoms will dissipate on their own.

For at least six weeks, it will be important to limit exposure to sunlight and wear broad-spectrum, SPF 30+ sunscreen each day. The impacted hairs in the treatment area will gradually fall out over several weeks to a month. Only follicles that are actively growing hairs at the time of the treatment will shut down. In order to clear all of the unwanted hairs from the targeted area, patients will usually need multiple treatments. Those with dark, coarse hair and fair skin usually get the best results from this procedure.

The results can last anywhere from several months to years.
