Laser hair removal utilizes concentrated beams of light targeted into hair follicles. The pigment within the hair follicles absorbs the light, which in turn damages follicles and destroys the hair, delaying the growth of new hair as well.
Raleigh Laser & Aesthetics utilizes an Elite IQ laser hair removal device. The device provides top-of-the-line technology that provides a custom laser hair removal solution based on a client’s unique skin and hair types.
Most patients do not experience any substantial pain with laser hair removal. Many equate the sensation to a tingling or a mild discomfort of a snapping rubber band. Temporary minor discomfort is generally worth the long-term results, as our patients have shared.
When preparing for laser hair removal, it is important to refrain from plucking, waxing, or performing any other manual hair removal techniques within six weeks of the procedure. This is due to the fact that laser hair removal targets the root of the hairs, so they need to remain intact. You can, however, shave the hair. This allows you to maintain the area without damaging the root of the hair, as shaving does not affect the root.
You may continue to shave, and in fact, you should shave your legs 24–48 hours before your treatment to avoid irritation. If hair is above the skin, the laser will target it in addition to the hair below the skin, and this may result in some discomfort.
Laser hair removal is most effective during the growth stage of the hair cycle. Since your treatment area hair will likely be in varied stages during the time of your treatment, it is necessary to undergo six treatments to make certain that all of the hair follicles are treated in the desired area.
Leg hair laser hair removal treatments generally take around an hour. Eight to ten weeks is the recommended amount of time in between sessions.
