Find Answers for Your Laser Hair Removal Questions
Read through our most frequently asked questions below to learn more about Laser Hair Removal and how it works:
At NuBody Concepts, we only use the safest, most up-to-date technology in our medical procedures. The laser we use for our hair removal treatments is two lasers in one, which lets us effectively and safely treat all skin types with superior results. We always have a surgeon on site, and our laser hair removals are performed by a certified, licensed, and trained aesthetician.
We combine laser technology with a cooling system in order to make the process more enjoyable and comfortable for everyone. Our patients typically relate the feeling to a small pinch on their skin—brief and gentle. However, some skin types are more sensitive than others, so your experience may differ slightly.
Laser hair removal will vary from person to person, depending on the condition of your hair and skin as well as the area being treated. During your personal consultation, you will be able to get an accurate estimate of a time frame. It will usually take somewhere between 6 and 8 treatments to completely kill the hair follicles.
You are free to shave as much as necessary, but we advise against waxing or tweezing before and in between each treatment. In order to kill the hair follicle, we’ll need the hair attached to it. Avoid sun exposure for 4 weeks prior to your treatment and for 2 weeks afterward, as the laser will make your skin more sensitive.
You may experience some redness near the treated area, which is completely normal. If you do experience redness, you can use hydrocortisone cream to treat it. There is no downtime after each treatment, and any long-term side effects are highly unlikely. If you are concerned about results or potential side effects, give us a call or ask your consultant during your personal consultation.
