Laser Hair Removal

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal utilizes concentrated light beams to target and destroy hair follicles, reducing or eliminating unwanted body hair. In the procedure, a handheld device emits laser pulses, absorbed by hair pigment (melanin), causing follicle damage without harming surrounding skin. Over multiple sessions, damaged follicles lose their ability to produce new hair, ensuring long-term reduction. This precise and relatively discomfort-free method is commonly used on areas like the face, legs, underarms, and bikini line. Trouvaille Tinley Park utilitzes InMode’s Triton Hair Removal laser, a cutting-edge solution that combines diode laser, radiofrequency, and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technologies. Triton’s versatility and comfort-enhancing features, such as a sapphire cooling tip, make it a reliable and effective choice for achieving smooth, hair-free skin.

FAQs for Laser Hair Removal

What should I do to prepare for my fist laser hair removal appointment?

4 weeks before – Do not wax, tweeze, bleach, or use hair removal creams or electrolysis on treatment area. These activities can reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. Avoid direct sun exposure. If unavoidable, use minimum SPF 30.

1-2 weeks before – Discontinue tanning (includes bed, self-tanning creams and sprays)

24 hours before – Shave treatment area

Day of treatment – Remove any lotions, make-up and deodorants prior to treatment

Wear loose fitting clothing that will leave the treatment area exposed and easily accessible for treatment. Tight or rough clothing may cause you to feel uncomfortable if the skin becomes sensitive after treatment

You may feel a slight pricking or stinging. Some people compare the feeling to a rubber band snapping onto the skin. We try our best to make the process as tolerable as possible.

How many sessions for laser hair removal? How long between sessions?

8-10 Treatments are usually required for optimal results. We recommend coming every 4-6 weeks for treatment.

Is laser hair removal permanent? How long does it last? Does it work?

Laser hair removal is permanent hair reduction, not permanent hair removal. At Trouvaille Med Spa, it’s not uncommon for patients to require maintenance treatments once a year, even after the area has been fully treated. The reason: The laser targets and destroys your current hair follicles, but new follicles can develop thanks to hormonal changes or shifts in weight. 

Can laser hair removal make my hair grow back thicker or in different colors?

Laser hair removal doesn’t change the color or texture of your hair. It targets hair follicles to reduce hair growth over time.

Can laser hair removal help with excessive sweating in certain areas?

Laser hair removal primarily targets hair follicles and is not specifically designed to treat excessive sweating. However, reducing hair in certain areas may indirectly help manage sweat production.

Is it possible to get laser hair removal on areas with tattoos?

Laser hair removal can be challenging on areas with tattoos because the laser targets pigment in the hair follicles, which can also be absorbed by tattoo ink, potentially causing damage to the tattoo or skin.

Can I get laser hair removal if I have a tan or sunburn?

It’s best to avoid laser hair removal on tanned or sunburned skin to reduce the risk of skin damage. Wait until your skin returns to its normal color.

Can I get laser hair removal while pregnant or breastfeeding?

It’s generally recommended to avoid laser hair removal during pregnancy and breastfeeding due to potential risks. Consult with your healthcare provider and laser specialist for guidance.

Can I shave between laser hair removal sessions?

Shaving is typically allowed between sessions, but avoid other hair removal methods like waxing or plucking that can disrupt the hair follicles targeted by laser treatment.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Laser hair removal can cause some discomfort, but the pain level can vary depending on individual pain tolerance, the area being treated, and the type of laser used. Some areas with thicker skin may hurt less than more sensitive areas. Many people find it less painful than waxing, and topical anesthetics can be used to minimize discomfort​.

How many laser hair removal treatments for bikini area?

Typically, 6 to 8 laser hair removal sessions are needed for the bikini area. Treatments are spaced about 6 to 8 weeks apart to effectively target hair in different growth stages. The exact number of sessions can vary based on individual hair growth patterns and skin type.

Can you work out after laser hair removal?

It is generally advised to avoid intense workouts for at least 24 hours after laser hair removal. Physical activity can increase body temperature and sweating, potentially leading to irritation and complications in the treated area.

Can you have sex after laser hair removal?

It’s advisable to wait at least 24 hours before engaging in sexual activity after laser hair removal, especially if the treatment was done in sensitive areas like the bikini line. This waiting period helps reduce the risk of irritation and infection.
