Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

The heat energy from the Cutera CoolGlide Xeo Laser penetrates your outer layer of skin to reach the hair follicles beneath. The pigmentation in the hair follicles absorbs the energy and when the follicles heat up, they’re rendered ineffective at producing hair. Your results? Smooth, hair-free skin that no longer requires shaving or waxing appointments.

Where is laser hair removal effective?

You can receive laser treatments just about anywhere you have unwanted hair. This includes the:

  • Back and chest
  • Arms and legs
  • Bikini area
  • Upper lip and chin
  • Underarms

Men and women can enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal. Talk to the team at Laser Advantage of East County to develop a customized treatment plan for your goals.

How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?

Your individual number of hair removal sessions depends on your hair density, skin type, and area treated. Usually, you see results in 3-7 sessions. It’s often recommended you go through laser sessions until your unwanted hair stops growing altogether.

The reason you need multiple sessions has to do with the hair growth cycle. Laser hair removal is effective when hair is in a growth cycle, but not all of your follicles are in that stage at the same time. Multiple sessions ensure each hair is targeted during this stage.

Will laser hair removal treatments hurt?

Most people tolerate laser hair removal without topical anesthetics or numbing cream. You should expect to feel some heat and prickling as the laser passes over your skin. Following treatment, the team provides you with ice packs and a cooling gel to ease lingering sensations.

Do I need to schedule downtime following laser hair removal sessions?

You don’t need to take time off from daily life, including work, chores, or exercise, following laser hair removal. Each session lasts about 30 minutes. Any lingering redness or swelling in the treated areas subsides within a few hours.
