At Westport Medispa, the team uses laser hair removal to achieve permanent hair reduction for a wide range of skin and hair types and works on many parts of the body as well as the face.
Traditional hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing, and tweezing, offer only a temporary solution and can result in ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal targets the dark pigment (melanin) within the hair follicle without damaging the pores or the integrity of the skin.
Laser hair removal is effective pretty much anywhere you have unwanted hair. This includes the:
You can have multiple areas treated in one laser hair removal session.
Skip waxing, electrolysis, or plucking any hair for about six weeks prior to your appointment. These methods temporarily remove the root, which the laser must target in order to be effective.
Laser hair removal is less effective when your skin is tanned, so also avoid the sun and tanning beds for about six weeks before treatment. It’s also wise to stay out of the sun for about six weeks following a session because your skin is temporarily more sensitive.
You feel heat and tingling during a hair removal session, but most people tolerate the treatment quite well. The laser is equipped with a cooling mechanism to protect the outer layer of skin and help keep you comfortable throughout treatment.
The exact number of sessions you’ll need depends on your hair and skin type and your ultimate goals. Most people need between two and six treatments for effective reduction or elimination of unwanted hair.
