Laser Hair Removal in Chicago, Illinois (IL)

Laser hair removal can be performed on many parts of your body, including your face, arms, underarms, chest, back, shoulders, and legs. Laser hair removal selectively heats the dark pigment melanin in your hair, which damages the hair follicle to slow or even stop future growth.

How laser hair removal is performed

Laser hair removal is a fast and almost painless in-office procedure. Your treatment will begin with your skin care specialist applying an anesthetic cream or cooling gel to the treatment area. Some lasers have built-in cooling systems for your comfort. The hand-held laser is then passed over your skin and you’ll feel a “zapping” sensation as the laser pulses on and off.

Laser hair removal works best for people with light skin tone and dark hair because the laser light specifically targets the dark pigment melanin in your hair. You will be advised to shave the treatment area beforehand and avoid sun tanning to help the laser penetrate into your hair follicles.

Recovery and results

You may have some skin irritation for a few hours after treatment. The treated hair will fall out over the next few days. Complications from laser hair removal are rare, but there is a risk of skin darkening that could last up to six months. The effectiveness of laser hair removal can vary. Some people may need up to six sessions spaced six weeks apart for best results.
