Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures at Thrive Skin + Wellness. So if you’re not happy with waxing to remove unwanted hair, tweezing, or shaving, laser hair removal may be a good alternative option for you.

Laser hair removal will give you permanent results so that you can pack your razor, tweezers and wax away for good. If you’re seriously considering this type of hair removal, there are a few things you should know about it first.

How long will it take to see results?

Every type of hair is different so the number of sessions required will vary for each individual. Hair can be removed when it’s actively growing and the hair in different parts of the body experience different rates of growth. As a result, it will take longer to remove hair in some areas than others. In most cases it will take 6 – 8 treatments on average

Which hair types see the best results?

Laser removal works best on hair that is thick, dark and coarse because the color or pigment found in the hair follicle attracts the laser. Finer hair may need a longer treatment time since it can be more resistant.

Is it important to go to all my sessions?

It’s easy to get distracted and not follow up with all of your sessions when you start to see the hair growth slowing down. Make sure that you attend all of your sessions through to the end to experience full results.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Thrive Skin + Wellness uses the most advance in laser hair removal technology. You’ll experience what feels like a warm, light pinching sensation. Additionally, our hair removal lasers are equipped with a cooling device that helps reduce the discomfort.

Laser hair removal destroys the root and once it is destroyed the hair can no longer grow. This is an investment that provides long-term benefits and results. When you consider the amount of money that you’re currently spending to keep your hair growth at bay and the time and energy that you’re spending on it, it really makes sense to take the plunge and get laser hair removal.
