What is laser hair reduction?

Laser hair reduction involves using laser energy to attack the source of unwanted hair, the follicle itself. The laser light is absorbed by the hair pigment, which damages the hair-producing follicle, rendering it less able to produce hair. To achieve the best results, a series of treatments are required, as only the hair currently in the growth phase can be addressed.

What does laser hair reduction feel like?

The sensation you will experience during your treatment will be like a light snap against your skin. To make the treatment comfortable, a numbing cream can be applied before the procedure, which takes a few minutes to activate. Once the area is numbed, the laser is directed to the unwanted hair, zapping it with energy, disabling the hair-producing follicles. The treatment is reasonably easy to tolerate, and well worth the lasting results, particularly if you are constantly shaving, plucking, or waxing to keep unwanted hair at bay.

Where can laser hair reduction be used?

Laser hair reduction in Phoenix can be performed on any area of the face or body, including:

  • Upper lip
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Back 
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Torso
  • Bikini line

Laser hair removal can work on all skin types with our next-generation laser system at Matisse Medspa.

How many treatments will I need?

Hair goes through several phases of growth: growth, transition, and rest. To attack as many of the unwanted hairs as possible, a series of treatments will produce the best results. Six sessions, spaced at four to eight week intervals, is most effective in treating most hairs in any body area. Some clients who have very excessive hair growth may require a bit more. A yearly touch up may be needed to address any new hair that has appeared.

What is the recovery time with laser hair removal?

After your treatment, you may experience reddened skin or swelling, but this is typically minor and won’t affect your usual activities. If you experience any discomfort, you can apply a cold compress. For the best results and fastest recovery, avoid shaving, plucking, or tweezing the hair a few weeks before your appointment, and stay out of the sun, or tanning beds.
