Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal from our Raleigh, NC med spa is a safe, long-lasting alternative to other hair removal methods. Waxing and shaving are only temporary, and while the results from electrolysis may be long term, this treatment can be both painful and time-consuming.

Our progressive CoolGlide® laser technology safely and effectively destroys hair at its root, providing long-lasting reduction of fine or coarse hair from virtually anywhere on the body. This advanced laser system can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies. Due to the system’s longer wavelength, patients of all skin tones can be safely and effectively treated.

Please Request a Consultation to learn more about how the benefits of laser rejuvenation and other medical-grade skin care procedures.

The best candidates for laser hair removal are women or men who have medium to dark hair. The pigmentation in the hair follicle absorbs the laser energy; for those with lighter hair, the energy that’s absorbed may not be enough to destroy the follicle for good. The most popular treatment areas are the legs, arms, bikini area, face, underarms and back.

At our med spa, we use the CoolGlide® laser for the best results. The CoolGlide handheld device delivers a cooling, soothing sensation during treatment to minimize any discomfort.

Before your treatment, we advise you not to tweeze or wax the area to be treated, but shaving is perfectly fine and encouraged. Why is this recommended? Tweezing and waxing can remove hair from its root, and the root of the hair follicle must be intact for the laser to effectively destroy the hair follicle.

During your session, the CoolGlide hand piece will be passed over the targeted area, cooling as it goes. The hair absorbs laser energy at the root, which destroys the follicle and prevents further hair growth. Some patients report a mild stinging or pinching sensation during treatment, which quickly subsides.

The hair on your body has three phases: growth, regression and resting. Not all hairs are in the same phase at the same time. Since laser hair removal can only occur during the growth phase, repeat treatment sessions will be necessary for optimum results. On average, this may take between three and eight sessions, depending on the size of the target area as well as hair growth and texture.

Although patient experiences vary, results of your laser hair removal may be apparent soon after your treatment, even after just one session. Although some patients may notice what looks like regrowth initially, this is actually the body’s elimination method to shed the dead hairs. Following your session, your skin may look red or feel irritated, but this should pass within a few hours. Extra sunscreen protection should be used on the treated area. Between sessions, you should avoid tweezing or waxing, however, shaving is fine. Although repeat sessions will be required, the hair regrowth is usually noticeably lessened as fewer and fewer hairs remain to be treated.
Imagine the freedom of having a lasting solution for areas of unwanted hair on your body. Our laser hair removal patients can enjoy remarkably smoother skin and have the confidence to look their best.
