Hair Removal Q & A
How does hair removal work?
If you prefer to have hairless skin, there are several different ways to remove the hair from your body. Shaving and plucking are two ways to do it at home, but you might find yourself missing patches, getting razor burn, or getting tired of the constant maintenance. As a solution to these inconveniences, Revive Medical Aesthetics offers several hair removal options:
Waxing pulls out your body hair and the roots of the hair for longer-lasting results than shaving, which cuts the hair off and keeps the root in place. Before a wax, your face or body hair should be about half an inch long.
The Cutera CoolGlide laser targets and disables your active hair follicles with heat. Because different follicles are in different stages of growth, you need several sessions to disable all of the follicles in your treatment area. CoolGlide is unique because the handpiece delivers a cooling effect to your skin to keep you comfortable.
ProWave laser hair removal specializes in removing darker, pigmented hair. The heat from the laser disables the active follicles, and you need several sessions to affect all of the follicles in your treatment area.
From which areas of my body can I remove the hair?
You can remove the hair from any part of your body that you normally shave, pluck, or don’t bother to reach at home with waxing or laser hair removal. At Revive Medical Aesthetics, the team can remove the hair from the following parts of your face and body.
- Chin and jaw
- Upper lip
- Bikini area
- Feet and toes
The team advises against getting laser hair removal to shape your eyebrows because the laser can potentially damage your eyes. However, waxing services are available for your brows, as well as microblading.
How many treatments do I need for laser hair removal?
You need several initial sessions with both ProWave and CoolGlide laser hair removal. Most patients need between five and seven treatments with ProWave or three to six with CoolGlide to see a major difference in body hair growth. About one year after your first rounds of laser hair removal, you may need to come back to Revive Medical Aesthetics for a follow-up treatment.
The results of laser hair removal are different for everyone: You might see a complete, permanent removal of your body hair or a notable reduction that needs maintenance. However, you must refrain from waxing or plucking between laser hair removal sessions so that the laser can target the pigment in your hair.
For long-lasting hair removal via waxing or state-of-the-art laser hair removal, call Revive Medical Aesthetics or reserve an appointment online today.
