Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works by using intense pulsed light to permanently destroy hair follicles. The heat produced by the IPL is absorbed by hair follicles in the active growth phase but it does not affect follicles in the dormant phase. For that reason, multiple sessions are needed to destroy all hair follicles in the treatment area. Thanks to the precision of the device, the surrounding skin is left untouched and undamaged.
For best results, we ask that you refrain from plucking, shaving and waxing several weeks prior to your treatment. You will also need to avoid sun exposure for several weeks prior to treatment and refrain from applying lotion, makeup and perfume on the day of your treatment. Our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for laser hair removal based on your skin type and tone.
Your laser hair removal treatment will be performed using the Venus Versa system, an innovative skin treatment device that is safe for different skin types and colors. To begin, we will apply a cooling gel to protect the outer layers of skin. The laser handpiece will be placed above the treatment area and calibrated to your skin color and type. The laser heat will be absorbed by the hair follicles to destroy them and discourage future hair growth. The handpiece is moved throughout the treatment area until all of the hair follicles in the active phase have been targeted.
How Often Do I Need Laser?
The number of treatment sessions needed will depend on a variety of factors; most people need six to 12 sessions spaced a few weeks apart to destroy all the hair follicles.
How Long Does It Take?
Depending on the treatment area, your treatment session can take anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes.
Is It Painful?
Treatment is not painful thanks to Venus Versa’s built-in cooling feature that keeps skin comfortable at all times. Most people feel only a slight sensation during treatment, like the feeling of a warm rubber band snapping against the skin.
Does Laser Hair Removal Have Any Side Effects?
Potential side effects from laser hair removal include temporary skin discoloration, and mild skin irritation.
