Laser Hair Removal Reviews
Do I qualify for laser hair removal?
Men and women alike make great candidates for our LHR treatments. At Lynch Vein & Aesthetics, we can drastically reduce facial and/body hair in just a few sessions. To find out if you are a candidate, we ask that you make an appointment to have a consultation with Dr. Lynch. He can speak with you one-on-one to go over your hair reduction goals and tell you if using a laser is appropriate for your hair and skin type.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
At your appointment, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are washed to eliminate dirt, oil, and moisturizers. During laser hair removal, a team member will slightly stretch the area to create a clear pathway between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The laser beam will focus on and destroy the hair follicle, which stops it from growing back. Usually, you will need 3 – 5 sessions to see your ideal results. Your sessions are spaced out 3 – 4 weeks in order to give the treated areas a chance to heal. This also allows time for hair follicles in the dormant phase to change to the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The specialized laser technology we use at Lynch Vein & Aesthetics targets the hair follicle alone, which preserves the skin in the treated area.
What CAN I Expect AFTER LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Although the treatment is mostly gentle in nature, the treated areas of your skin may look like it has a slight sunburn when lasers are used. After your session, you are free to go back to all normal activities, but you need to avoid exercise or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least 24 hours to let the treated skin recover. At home following your appointment, we suggest applying soothing creams or cold packs to alleviate any mild discomfort.
Because your hair follicles grow in cycles, it may take several sessions to have access to hair growing at different rates. When some hair follicles are in a live growing phase, others can remain dormant. Scheduling your treatments out every few weeks can help you get better, smoother results.
Laser hair removal FAQ
What causes excess body hair?
There are many potential causes of excess body hair. Hormonal imbalances, such as those that can occur during puberty or menopause, increase hair growth. However, most candidates for laser hair removal in Peoria, AZ, simply have a genetic predisposition for dark or excess hair. This can be due to factors like ethnicity and family history.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Dr. Lynch is a highly experienced professional who has performed countless successful laser hair removal procedures. Our team has the skill and training necessary to ensure that your procedure is as safe and effective as possible. If you have concerns about the safety of laser hair removal, please don't hesitate to call a member of our staff.
How many laser sessions do I need?
Lynch Vein & Aesthetics can estimate the number of laser hair removal sessions needed during an initial consultation. The exact number of sessions will vary from patient to patient, depending on factors like the size and location of the treatment area, the density of the hair growth, and the patient's individual response to the laser treatment.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Considered an effective treatment, laser hair removal produces lasting results. While you can enjoy the benefits of the procedure for a long time, it's technically semi-permanent since some follicles may be unaffected. However, patients find the majority of the hair are gone once their plan has concluded and even if some hairs pop up, it is easier to deal with. Additional laser sessions can also be scheduled to address any stragglers or new growth as well.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Your laser hair removal session may cause some discomfort, but it isn't considered a painful procedure. Patients will feel a slight snap as the laser targets and removes each follicle. We can use a local anesthetic to the surface of the skin prior to the start of the treatment session. For patients who are used to getting waxed, they think that laser hair removal causes more comfortable than getting waxed.
Can I shave between laser hair removal sessions?
Unlike waxing or plucking, shaving doesn't remove the hair from the root, which is necessary for the laser to effectively target the hair follicles. Avoid any form of hair removal that pulls hair from the root, as this can interfere with the efficacy of your laser treatments and prolong the process of achieving smooth, hair-free skin.
