Are you tired of dealing with unwanted body hair? While tweezing, shaving, and waxing can eliminate the issue temporarily, the results are not long-lasting. At RSVP MedSpa, we are proud to offer cutting-edge laser hair removal treatments to help eliminate your unwanted hair for smooth, soft skin. Read on to learn more about this treatment and how it can benefit you.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-surgical treatment option to reduce the growth of body hair. At RSVP MedSpa, we offer the GentleMax Pro to treat unwanted hair. With this advanced technology, we can safely reduce hair on all Fitzpatrick skin types for amazing results.

During laser hair removal treatment, a laser will emit a light that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair. The light energy is then converted into heat, which causes damage to the hair follicles that produce hair. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth so you can enjoy silky smooth skin. Plus, this treatment is versatile and can be applied to almost any body part, including, but not limited to, the legs, bikini line, abdomen, back, armpits, upper lip and chin.

Benefits of Choosing Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal offers many benefits, as it is a versatile and generally safe treatment. Benefits include the following:

  • Long-term reduction of unwanted body hair.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Associated with minimal side effects.
  • Quick treatment.
  • Reduces ingrown hairs.
  • Safe treatment.
  • No pain, no razor burn.
  • Long-term cost savings, shaving over a woman’s lifetime costs $15-20k!

Ideal Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is effective on both men and women of almost any skin type and skin tone who desire a permanent reduction of body hair. Ideal candidates will have dark hair in the targeted area, as the laser light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair. However, laser hair removal may not be right for some, including those who are pregnant, are taking certain medications, have a history of keloid scarring, or have skin cancer. To learn if you are a candidate for laser hair removal, please contact RSVP MedSpa today to schedule a consultation.

The RSVP MedSpa Laser Hair Removal Experience

Prior to your laser hair removal treatment, you will be given specific instructions on how to prepare. This will involve avoiding tanning beds and creams, photosensitizing medications, and avoiding waxing, tweezing, and shaving for 6 weeks prior to treatment.

During treatment, you may be given protective eyewear, and the machine settings will be placed for your individual treatment. A cooling device called a Zimmer cooler may be used to ensure your comfort during treatment. During laser hair removal treatment, pulses of light will be delivered to the treatment area. The length of the treatment will depend on the size and number of areas being treated.

Following laser hair removal, you may experience mild swelling and redness at the treatment site, which will reduce over the next few hours. You should avoid heat such as steam rooms, saunas, jacuzzies, and strenuous activity for at least 48 hours after treatment. Our team will provide you with a complete list of aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results.
