Laser Hair Removal Treatment Elmhurst, IL
Is unwanted body hair keeping you from the silky, smooth skin you desire? Are you tired of constantly shaving or painful waxing? Laser hair removal is a quick, non-invasive way to remove unwanted hair on your face, legs, bikini line, underarms, back and stomach for both men and women.
We utilize the most advanced lasers available to ensure you receive optimum results. During your consultation appointment, we will determine which type of laser will be used, discuss the details of treatment, realistic expectations for your treatment, any risks involved and the cost of laser hair removal.
How does it work?
Lasers transmit a beam of highly concentrated light that is absorbed by the pigments in hair follicles. The fast pulses of light emitted by the lasers significantly hinder the follicle’s ability to regrow hair.
What to Expect During Treatment
Laser hair removal is performed in our office and can take anywhere between a few minutes to hours to complete, depending on the area(s) being treated. We apply local anesthetic to the treatment area to help with any discomfort. Most people compare the sensation of the laser pulses to the feeling of being snapped by a rubber band. You are welcome to take over-the-counter pain medications before or after the procedure as well if you have a low pain tolerance.
What to Expect After Treatment
Much like a sunburn, your skin will be red and irritated for a couple of days. In addition to cold compresses and ice packs, you can soothe your skin with aloe vera. Protect your skin throughout the day by wearing sunscreen and be sure to reapply often if you are outdoors for an extended period of time.
We strive to achieve the most optimum results for each of our patients and while permanent hair reduction is common, we cannot guarantee it for everyone. Results vary from person to person and repeat treatments may be necessary.
