Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment that uses laser technology to stop unwanted hair growth. Luxe Medical Aesthetics is a state-of-the-art medical spa that uses the most advanced aesthetic tools available, so you get the best results.

For laser hair removal, the team uses DiolazeXL by InMode. This hand-held aesthetic tool combines pulsed laser energy with a skin cooling tip to maximize results and comfort. The team uses the innovative laser hair removal tool to get rid of unwanted hair from many areas of the body, including:

  • Face
  • Chin
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Stomach
  • Legs

The versatile laser tool has numerous laser settings, allowing Kara and the team to treat many skin types.

Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

Schedule a consultation at Luxe Medical Aesthetics to see if you’re a candidate for laser hair removal. The team completes a thorough initial consultation before making any specific treatment recommendations. 

During this visit, they review your concerns and medical history. They also ask about your skin health history and whether you’re taking any medications that might affect the results of your treatment.

Kara and the team then answer your questions about the laser treatment. Laser hair removal effectively delays future hair growth but isn’t a permanent solution for removing unwanted hair. You need follow-up laser treatments to maintain results.

If laser hair removal makes the right choice for you, the team provides you with instructions on how to prepare for your treatments to get the best results. This includes staying out of the sun for a set period of time and no waxing or tweezing the hair in the area undergoing treatment.

What happens during laser hair removal?

While you relax in the treatment chair, your provider at Luxe Medical Aesthetics shaves the treatment area and applies a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort.

Your provider presses the hand-held laser tool against your skin and activates the device. The laser energy passes through the skin, heating the hair follicle and damaging it to inhibit growth. 

Laser hair removal treatments take less than an hour. You may experience some swelling and redness following your session, but these side effects disappear within a few hours.

Hair grows in cycles, and you need a series of two to six laser treatments every one to four months to get the best results.
