About Laser Hair Removal: How does it work?

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Is Laser Hair Removal permanent?

“During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.” – Mayo Clinic

About Laser Hair Removal Before After

What to Expect

Before your
first appointment

  • Wear sunscreen on the treatment areas- we 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.


 you’re here

  • 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


your 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does It work?

The laser targets and destroys hair follicles below the skin’s surface.

What Are the Risks?

Skin damage such as blistering, redness, or irritation is uncommon but possible with modern laser technologies.

Does It Hurt?

With our state-of-the-art Motus AX by Deka, the pain previously associated with Laser Hair Removal is a thing of the past. 

Will It Work on My Skin Type and Hair Color?

With the Motus AX, we can treat every skin type with equal safety and efficacy! We can even treat you when you’re tan and it’s just as effective!

How Long Does It Take?

The actual procedure time depends on the area being treated. A small area (such as underarm hair removal) will take less than five minutes to complete, while a larger area (such as full legs) might take a half hour.
