Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a treatment that reduces or eliminates unwanted body hair on your legs and other areas. The Skin Glow Medical staff offers two in-office laser technologies to address unwanted hair without invasive procedures or the need for downtime. 

Alma Soprano ICE laser system

The Soprano ICE system uses multiple wavelengths of diode laser energy to destroy the hair follicles beneath the skin’s surface without harming surrounding skin. Laser energy targets the pigment in the hair follicle, breaking down its structure to prevent new hairs from growing.

Soprano ICE offers advanced cooling technology to protect your skin and keep you comfortable during treatment. The laser system is especially effective in treating hair on people with light-colored skin and thin hair.

Aerolase® laser technology

The aerolase laser uses YAG 1064nm lasers to destroy unwanted hair follicles, even on dark or tanned skin tones. The laser energy increases the temperature of the follicle until its structure is destroyed and it can no longer produce new hair.

What can I expect during laser hair removal treatment?

Laser hair treatments are in-office procedures that are both safe and effective in reducing unwanted body hair. The Skin Glow Medical team places the laser handpiece against the surface of your skin to deliver the laser energy. 

While there may be some discomfort during your treatment, the Skin Glow Medical staff ensures your comfort and safety are a top priority. Procedure times vary based on the areas of hair being treated but generally last less than an hour. 

Outside of some mild swelling and redness that resolve on their own in a few days, laser treatments require no recovery.

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

Each person has different needs when it comes to hair removal. The Skin Glow Medical staff customizes treatments based on a number of factors, including:

  • Skin type
  • Skin tone
  • Hair thickness
  • Size of the treatment area

Because laser technology can only treat hair in the active growth phase, you can expect to need more than one treatment to achieve your desired results. Your Skin Glow Medical provider determines how many treatments you’ll need based on your specific goals. 

After your procedure, your Skin Glow Medical provider can recommend skin care products, like Nature by Heidi, to rehydrate your skin and prevent flaking and irritation.
