Laser hair removal can be a total game changer when it comes to your routine and confidence. But you’re probably asking

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a common cosmetic procedure that is designed to stop hair growth. This is accomplished by using advanced laser technology to prevent hair growth from the root. Typically, laser hair removal is a safe and pain-free way to rid your body of pesky hairs.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal uses concentrated light to target the hair, which is then converted to heat to destroy the hair follicle.

LivSmooth uses top-of-the-line laser technology to gradually destroy the hair follicle without causing harm to surrounding skin.

About Laser Hair Removal Before After

What to Expect

With LivSmooth, your care and experience is top priority. When it comes to laser hair removal, the number of sessions varies depending on
skin and hair type and the size of the treatment area. It’s important to note that multiple sessions are typically needed.

Before Your Appointment

There are several things we ask that you do before your laser hair removal: 

  • Wear sunscreen on the treatment areaswe can’t treat over a sunburn but we can treat an established tan!
  • Avoid plucking, body hair waxing, depilatory creams, and bleaching the hair as all of these prevent the laser from finding the hair bulb.
  • Shave the treatment area at least 24 hours before your laser treatment for hair. The laser finds the hair below the skin’s surface and external hair follicles interfere with the process.

Following these steps can help ensure you have a safe laser hair removal treatment!

When You’re Here

Here’s what you need to know about laser hair removal and what to expect during the process:
  • Laser hair removal usually requires a series of treatments for full clearance
  • The nurse will apply ultrasound gel and glide the laser over your skin where you’ll feel a cooling sensation. 
  • The laser damages the hair follicles, which inhibits hair growth.
  • A single laser treatment for hair can range from a few minutes for a small area to up to an hour for a large area
  • Don’t worry about the pain! When lasering, pain-free laser hair removal is always a guarantee. 

After Your Treatment

Here’s what you should know about post laser hair removal treatment: 

  • Typically, your skin will look and feel like nothing has been done, but you might notice a little redness and irritation for the first few hours after laser hair removal.
  • After laser hair removal and between scheduled treatments, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.
