While it is a very low-risk procedure, laser hair removal does not come without strict guidelines. This is not only for your safety, but also to ensure you get results in as little time as possible. At Refresh Palm Beach Medical Aesthetics, we want to ensure you get the best value on laser hair removal in Jupiter, FL. Follow these simple instructions to quickly and safely get sexy, smooth skin that never needs shaving, waxing, or plucking again.

What to Avoid Before Laser Hair Removal

Avoid sun exposure for at least one month prior to having laser hair removal, though six weeks is ideal. This includes the use of tanning beds that expose you to UV rays, as well as sunless tanning products, that can burn or otherwise irritate your skin. To be most effective, lasers need as much distinction between your skin tone and hair color as possible. Tanning reduces the contrast, so it should be avoided.

Do not wax, undergo electrolysis, or tweeze at least two weeks before treatment. These hair removal methods remove the hair from the follicle, rendering laser treatment ineffective. For maximum results, the laser must be able to find and destroy as many hair follicles as possible so you will no longer grow hair.

What to Expect After Laser Hair Removal

The treated areas may look and / or feel like a sunburn, so taking care of your skin afterward is very important. If you do not follow your post-treatment instructions from our laser tech, your results will be compromised and you put yourself at risk for infection.

To protect your skin after laser hair removal:

  • Avoid deodorant or perfumes of any kind on the treated areas for 48 hours.
  • Avoid using hot water on the treated areas. Use lukewarm water for bathing for at least a week.
  • Avoid sun exposure, especially tanning beds, for at least two weeks after your treatment. If being outdoors is completely unavoidable, be sure to stay in shaded areas and use sunscreen.
  • Apply cold compresses to reduce pain and inflammation.

Our cutting-edge lasers are designed to achieve maximum results is as few visits as possible. Since we use the highest powered lasers available, it is critical that you follow these instructions. This will help you avoid skin irritation or infection and to ensure treatment is successful.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Many people report that each time the laser is triggered, it causes a rubber-band snapping sensation on the skin. It ranges from mild discomfort to somewhat painful for those with a low pain threshold. We use a topical analgesic to minimize discomfort, along with a cooling gel on the laser wand to cool your skin’s surface.

Do I Need More Than One Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

While laser hair removal is effective for permanent hair removal, more than one session is necessary to achieve the best results. This is because hair grows in cycles, and none of the follicles are in the active cycle all at once.

Your first laser treatment will stop hair growth of hair that is active, but dormant hair is not affected. After your first appointment, we schedule a follow-up visit within 12 weeks to treat the previously inactive hair once it has re-entered the growth phase.

How Long Does It Take to See Results With Laser Hair Removal?

You will not experience full results immediately as with waxing. During the session, the laser destroys hair at the top of your skin and through the deeper layers of the skin as well. The hair on top will start to shed immediately, but the deeper hairs take up to 10 days to shed completely.

Many people report achieving results including noticeably smoother and hair-free skin after just one visit. Though you may need subsequent visits as hair growth changes, desired results are typically attained after just one follow up.
