Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal permanently reduces or removes unwanted hair using a focused beam of light. During the procedure, a handheld device emits pulses of light that the melanin (pigment) in the hair follicles absorbs. 

This process effectively alters the hair follicles to significantly reduce hair growth nearly anywhere on the body, including the:

  • Upper lip
  • Cheeks
  • Sideburns
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Bikini area
  • Back and shoulders
  • Legs

Your provider at Rejive Medical Aesthetics can develop a comprehensive treatment plan to target one area or more. The practice uses the Lutronic Clarity II 755/1064 nm dual wavelength laser with advanced capabilities that allow for faster, more efficient hair removal than previous models.

What are the benefits of Clarity II laser hair removal?

Clarity II laser hair removal is the ideal choice for men and women looking to permanently reduce unwanted hair. Essential benefits of Clarity II include:

  • Uses IntelliTrak technology to cover larger areas in less time
  • Removes hair up to twice as fast as other devices
  • Has shorter pulse widths to remove finer hair
  • Offers temperature sensing for improved comfort
  • Includes adjustable wavelengths for varying hair colors and skin types

With Clarity II, your provider at Rejive Medical Aesthetics can deliver quick, convenient treatments with minimal discomfort and downtime.

How should I prepare for laser hair removal?

Ensuring your skin is in the healthiest condition possible is the first step in preparing for laser hair removal. Before your appointment, make sure to:

  • Limit sun exposure
  • Wear sunscreen and reapply often
  • Shave the area 
  • Avoid tweezing or waxing
  • Wear loose-fitting clothes
  • Don’t use any creams, fragrances, or serums
  • Discontinue using retinol, benzoyl peroxide, and salicylic acid

Your provider at Rejive Medical Aesthetics also gives you detailed instructions to prepare for your visit.

What does laser hair removal feel like?

Laser hair removal with the Clarity II device is relatively comfortable compared to previous treatments. The device’s temperature sensing helps keep your treatment area cool, and your provider can also apply a topical numbing cream. Most people describe laser hair removal as a quick snapping sensation that resolves quickly.

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

Most people need at least 2-6 treatments for permanent hair reduction. Spacing these treatments by 4-6 weeks ensures your skin has time to heal before the next session.
