What happens during laser hair removal?
When you arrive at a laser hair removal appointment at The Stella Med Spa at Nurture Women’s Health, you relax in a comfortable chair. Your physician gives you special glasses to wear to protect your eyes. They numb the treatment area to make your procedure feel comfortable.
Your practitioner uses a handheld device to apply laser energy to your skin. It might feel like warm pinpricks or a rubber band snapping, but numbing cream diminishes this sensation. The length of time your procedure lasts depends on the size of the areas treated.
What should I expect after the procedure?
After laser hair removal, your skin might be a little red or swollen. You can take over-the-counter pain relievers or apply ice to the area to relieve discomfort. Make sure to protect your skin from the sun.
Over the next few days or weeks, treated hair begins falling out. Multiple laser hair removal treatments with periodic maintenance sessions can offer you the best outcome.
