Ideal Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

Are you tired of shaving, plucking, or waxing? It may be time to consider laser hair removal in Holly Springs, NC. Lasers can remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively. Removing unwanted hair usually takes 6 sessions or more. The ideal candidates for laser hair removal are those with dark hair and light skin, but it can still work on any skin type. Laser hair removal is not suitable for candidates with cystic acne, psoriasis, or dermatitis; pregnant or breastfeeding candidates; candidates with metal screws in the treatment area; or candidates with a pacemaker. Candidates taking Retin-A or Accutane will need to discontinue use of those medications for a period of time prior to having laser hair removal, and they will need a consultation with our providers prior to starting laser hair removal treatments. book a consultation

At Thrive Skin + Wellness, we like to focus on the after results because how you look and feel post – treatment is what counts the most.

The Procedure

Laser hair removal damages hair follicles using highly concentrated light to delay them from growing again for long periods. It targets actively growing follicles, so it takes a few sessions before significant hair reduction shows. A handheld laser is held above the skin, usually with a cooling device on its tip for the skin’s protection. When the treatment starts, the laser beam will penetrate the skin to reach the hair follicles, damage them, and stop them from growing new hairs. The patient might feel a little warm pinprick sensation. The duration of the procedure varies depending on the size of the treatment location. Small areas are quick, whereas the back can take over an hour.

Your Consultation

We will ask about your overall health, complete medical history, and expectations during your consultation. Expect us to take photos for before and after comparison. We will tell you about the treatment plan, potential cost, preparation, aftercare, and more.


There might be mild swelling and redness for a few hours after the laser procedure. You can treat discomfort with ice. It is best to avoid the tanning bed and sunlight after the treatments, and wearing sunscreen with a proper SPF is vital.


Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal offers long-lasting results, but it may not be entirely permanent. It can significantly reduce hair growth, and any regrowth tends to be finer and lighter. Maintenance sessions may be required to keep the area hair-free.

Is laser hair removal safe?

When performed by a trained professional using appropriate equipment, laser hair removal is generally safe. The procedure has been FDA-approved and is widely used for hair removal.

Does laser hair removal work on all skin and hair types?

The effectiveness of laser hair treatments can vary depending on the contrast between the color of the hair and the color of the skin. It tends to work best on individuals with light skin and dark hair. However, advancements in technology have made it more suitable for a wider range of skin and hair types.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Most people describe the sensation as similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Discomfort varies depending on the individual and the treatment area, but it’s generally well-tolerated. Cooling methods and numbing creams can be used to minimize any discomfort.

Can I go out in the sun after laser hair removal?

It’s important to protect the treated area from sun exposure immediately after treatment to avoid potential complications. Using sunscreen and avoiding direct sunlight is recommended.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?

The cost of laser hair removal treatments varies based on the size, number, and location of the treatment areas. Be sure to ask about our available financing plans to cover the price of the chosen procedure.
