How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Your laser hair removal procedure at Javani Med Spa will be performed in a private treatment room. Once you are relaxed, the targeted areas will be cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and lotions. Next, your technician will stretch out the skin to create a clear path between the laser and the hair follicle root. The laser's energy will target and disable the hair follicle, which stops it from growing back. Usually, you will need to get several sessions over a month or longer to get your ideal results. Your treatments will be staggered to give the affected areas a chance to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles in the dormant phase to change to the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective.
What Should I Expect Following Laser Hair Removal?
Although laser hair removal is relatively gentle, the treated areas of your skin may feel like they have a slight sunburn when lasers are used. When you leave our office, you are able to resume all normal activities, but you should avoid exercise or extended time outdoors for about a day to let the treated skin recover. At home following your treatment, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to minimize any discomfort.

How much does laser hair removal cost?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that varies in cost, depending on the size and number of areas being treated, plus how many treatment sessions you will need to get optimal results. To help put the cost of laser hair removal into perspective, estimate the time and energy you currently spend on shaving, waxing, or other methods. By comparison, laser hair removal is generally more cost-effective and can save you time and energy long-term. Our team will create a custom treatment plan for you that includes the total number of sessions recommended and costs.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal is a tried and proven treatment that usually offers long-lasting results when conducted regularly as your practitioner recommends. The superior implementation of the Soprano ICE laser generates fantastic outcomes. The procedure, for both men and women, is technically semi-permanent because it may not entirely shut down hair production in every hair follicle on your skin. Still, patients find the majority of the hair follicles are dormant after their treatment plans have concluded. More laser hair removal sessions may also be conducted to take care of any stragglers or new growth.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Follicles grow in cycles. While some hair follicles are growing, others are dormant. Because every hair follicle is in a different stage, multiple treatments are usually suggested to target follicles during their active periods. Spreading out your sessions over a few weeks ensures you get the most effective results and smooth skin.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal can cause minor discomfort, but it is not considered a painful procedure. Patients should feel a small snap as the laser targets and removes the follicle. The "ICE" of the Soprano ICE technology is a cooling system that will help you experience comfort throughout your treatment. However, your technician may apply a local anesthetic to the surface of the skin before we start your treatment appointment for even more comfort. Most patients agree that laser hair removal is highly comfortable compared to a typical waxing session.
