Laser Hair Removal Q&A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a light-based procedure that damages the follicles in your skin so they can no longer grow hair. Follicles are the sacs surrounding each hair root that support the hair’s growth. 

During laser hair removal at The Fountain of You, Mind & Body, the team can target almost any part of your body with excessive or unwanted hair. They use the laser to treat any place you normally shave or wax, such as your:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bikini area
  • Chin and neck

The only area you shouldn’t treat with laser hair removal is your eyebrows.

The laser works by heating and damaging your follicles. The pigment in your hair, called melanin, absorbs the heat from the laser and delivers it to the follicles. 

Most people need several laser hair removal sessions because hair must be treated while the follicle is in its growth phase, and they’re not all in the growth phase simultaneously. 

How does laser hair removal compare to other hair removal methods?

Many people wonder if it’s worth making the change from shaving or waxing their body hair to laser hair removal, which is the more modern alternative. If you’re on the fence or need more information, here are a few laser hair removal advantages:

  • No razor bumps or burns
  • No painful waxing strips
  • No accidental cuts or nicks
  • Less maintenance
  • Permanent or semi-permanent results

The team reviews your medical history and current health to make sure you can safely enjoy laser hair removal treatments without unwanted reactions. They perform laser hair removal while adhering to all sanitary and safety standards. 

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal results are long-lasting but difficult to predict with certainty. While you’ll experience a reduction in body hair, not everyone sees a permanent removal. 

You may go for months without seeing any hair growth in the treated areas. If more growth appears, it’s likely to be lighter in color and finer than before you started your treatment at The Fountain of You, Mind & Body. 

If your body hair starts to regrow, you can visit The Fountain of You, Mind & Body for additional touch-up treatments.
