About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment wherein laser energy is used to stop hair growth in targeted areas. The cosmetic provider uses the GentleMax Pro laser device to release laser energy, which is absorbed by the pigment in your unwanted hair follicles. The laser energy destroys the hair follicle, thus stopping hair growth in the targeted area. However, most patients need 4 to 6 sessions for optimal results because each session only targets some of the hair follicles in the area.

Hair grows in three stages — anagen, catagen, and telogen. The hair follicle is connected to the root and actively growing in the anagen stage, but it disconnects from the root and starts shrinking in the catagen and telogen phases. That’s why laser energy can only destroy the hair follicles in the anagen phase during the treatment, so you need successive sessions over multiple months to destroy all the unwanted hair follicles. Once the hair follicles are destroyed, they won’t grow again. Contact us at SkinScience for more information about the best laser hair removal, Pleasant Hill has to offer.

What happens during laser hair removal?

During laser hair removal, the cosmetic provider cleanses the treatment areas of your body. You have to wear protective eyeglasses during the treatment. The GentleMax Pro device is carefully adjusted and moved around the treatment areas on your skin to deliver laser energy. You’ll feel mild warmth on your skin, similar to the sensation of a rubber band snap. The entire process concludes within 30 minutes, depending on the treatment area.

What is the recovery process after laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal in Pleasant Hill doesn’t involve downtime or an extended recovery period. You may notice puffiness and redness in the treatment areas, but you can resume your daily activities and work immediately.

How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?

Most patients need 4 to 6 laser hair removal sessions spaced a month or two apart. However, the precise frequency of your treatments will depend on your specific hair quality and treatment area.
