Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal treatments are:

  • Long-lasting: Unwanted hair growth can stop for months – or sometimes even years – following laser treatment. In some cases, it is permanent.
  • Low-maintenance: Minimal shaving or upkeep required!
  • Quick and easy: Treatment sessions are short and can last anywhere from five minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment site.
  • Painless: Say goodbye to accidental razor cuts and hot wax! Laser hair removal is pain-free, as numbing cream can be provided for most areas to provide comfort.
  • Convenient: While you may need more than one laser treatment to achieve the results you want, laser hair removal still takes far less time than you’d spend shaving and grooming.

Laser Hair Removal Process

Colair’s laser hair removal process is simple and affordable. Here’s what you can expect.

We’ll perform a short exam to determine your skin type and review your medical history to ensure the process is safe for you at that time.

Depending on the site, you are required to shave the area and apply a topical anesthetic to your skin prior to the laser treatment to make your experience as effective and comfortable as possible.

Our staff will run a handheld laser instrument along your skin in the target site(s), which will penetrate the hair follicles underneath your skin and damage them to prevent future hair growth.

Side effects from the laser hair removal process are unlikely, but you may notice some redness and/or swelling immediately following the treatment.

How to Prepare

There are several things you can do in advance of your laser hair removal treatment to make the process quicker and more effective. While the below steps are commonly recommended, be sure to check with your clinician about any preparations they may want you to make prior to your treatment.

  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning, both indoors and outdoors
  • Wear broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 50 when outdoors
  • Shave the treatment area the day of treatment so that surface hair doesn’t interfere with the laser reaching below your skin
  • Avoid other hair removal methods in the weeks prior to your treatment, including waxing and tweezing
  • Don’t use sunless tanners, spray tans or other products that may impact your skin tone
