What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a method of reducing the hair growth on your body. At Radiance MedSpa DC, we achieve consistent results with the Cutera® laser hair removal system to remove the pesky unwanted hair on your body. Unlike other systems, Cutera’s cool glide is safe for all skin tones.

The laser targets your hair follicles, the tiny sacs that each hair grows out of inside your skin. The hair absorbs the laser and vaporizes as it is targeted. The follicles are disabled and do not grow hair for a period of two to eight weeks. One sees less hair growing back after each treatment until it returns no more.

Where can I get laser hair removal on my body?

You can choose to get laser hair removal on almost any part of your body where you grow hair. Commonly targeted areas for laser hair removal are:

  • Back
  • Chin
  • Chest
  • Arms & Under
  • Legs
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Upper lip
  • Bikini area

Laser hair removal works best on dark hair that can absorb a lot of light. If you have gray or light blonde hair, you may require another option.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

There are many benefits to putting down the razor and choosing laser hair removal instead. Laser hair removal:

  • Eliminates razor bumps
  • Targets ingrown hairs
  • Eliminates daily shaving
  • Has long-lasting results
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Requires no downtime
  • May yield permanent or semipermanent results

Since each laser hair removal session reduces the amount of hair that grows back, your appointments will be less frequent over time. Some patients completely stop growing hair and can eventually stop getting treatments altogether. Because of this, laser hair removal can have a lower lifetime cost than shaving.

Is laser hair removal safe?

The equipment used in laser hair removal is highly regulated by the FDA for safety. Laser hair removal is extremely safe, but a few mild side effects can occur. Reported side effects include:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Irritation

If you experience other, more severe side effects or any that don’t subside after a couple of days, you should call our office at your earliest convenience. If you have additional concerns about the treatment beforehand,feel free to call for additional details.
