What to expect during your appointment
A few days prior to your laser hair removal appointment, you will be instructed to shave the treatment area. The day of your procedure, we will apply a topical cream to numb your skin and you will be given special glasses to protect your eyes from the light of the laser.
Your technician will then adjust the laser according to your skin color, hair color, hair thickness and the location. From there, he or she will focus the laser energy on the unwanted hair follicles. Most of our Michigan patients report no discomfort during this process, other than a slight stinging sensation.
Recovery + Downtime
Although you may experience some swelling and redness in the treatment area, most of our laser hair removal patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately. Any side effects are temporary in nature and should resolve within 24 hours. In the meantime, you can apply ice and aloe lotion to minimize any discomfort.
FAQ: How many sessions will I need?
Hair grows in cycles. For optimal effectiveness, laser hair removal should be performed when your hair is in the growth stage. As such, your appointments will be spaced approximately one month apart, with most of our Detroit patients requiring four to six laser sessions.
