Procedures and Effectiveness

Our laser hair removal process is designed for efficiency and comfort. During treatment, the laser targets hair follicles, effectively preventing future growth. The treatment areas we cover include:

  • Extra-small area: For delicate regions like the lip, chin, ears, hands, and feet, our precise laser treatment targets hair with accuracy, ensuring a smooth finish without the discomfort often associated with hair removal in these sensitive areas.
  • Small area: Underarm and bikini line treatments are popular choices, offering a long-term solution to daily shaving. Our laser effectively reduces hair in these areas, enhancing comfort and confidence, especially during the summer months.
  • Medium area: Our Brazilian bikini, chest, and lower leg treatments are designed for those seeking more extensive hair reduction. The Brazilian bikini treatment is ideal for a clean, well-groomed look, while chest and lower leg treatments provide a smooth, hair-free appearance, perfect for those who are active or prefer a cleaner look.
  • Large area: Comprehensive treatments for larger areas like the back and full legs are efficient and time-saving. Say goodbye to the hassle of regular shaving or waxing. Our laser therapy offers a convenient solution for maintaining a hair-free back and smooth legs with minimal effort.
  • Extra-large area: The extra-large area treatment, encompassing the neck, back, shoulders, and upper arms, is ideal for clients looking for extensive hair removal. This comprehensive treatment targets larger body regions, making it perfect for those who wish to significantly reduce body hair and enjoy a more carefree, low-maintenance lifestyle.

Most treatments typically take under 15 minutes, but large and extra-large areas may take 15-30 minutes. For best results, we recommend six to eight sessions, spaced four to eight weeks apart, depending on the hair growth cycle and the area being treated.

Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Patient Instructions for Laser Hair Removal

Before undergoing laser hair removal at The Skin Center, it’s important to follow specific guidelines to ensure the best possible results and a smooth treatment experience. Here’s what you need to know:

Preparing for Your Treatment

  • Avoid Tanning: Refrain from tanning for two weeks prior to your treatment. This helps in minimizing skin sensitivity and ensures the effectiveness of the laser treatment.
  • Avoid Waxing, Bleaching, Tweezing: Avoid waxing, bleaching, and tweezing in the treatment area for at least four to six weeks before your session. This ensures that the hair follicles are intact and can be effectively targeted by the laser.
  • Shave 24 Hours Prior to Session: Shave the area to be treated 24 hours prior to your session. This step is crucial for a more effective treatment, as it allows the laser to focus on the hair roots beneath the skin surface. Too much hair on the surface of the skin decreases the effectiveness of the hair removal and increases the risk of singed hair burning your skin.

Post-Treatment Care:

  • Skin Care: After treatment, you may notice some redness and swelling, similar to mild sunburn. These symptoms typically subside within a few hours. If needed you can apply cold compresses, ice packs or aloe vera gel to cool the treated skin post-treatment.
  • Avoid Heat: For 24 hours post-treatment, avoid hot showers, saunas, and strenuous exercise as heat can irritate the treated area.
  • Sun Protection: Protect the treated area from sun exposure between sessions and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to maintain skin health and prevent changes in skin pigmentation.

Unbelievable results is my review in a nutshell!!! : )

The staff is absolutely wonderful and everyone's always eager to help make you look and feel ten + years younger. My husband and I make sure we stop here every time we come back home to the Buffalo/WNY area to visit family and friends.

The Botox is great in moderation, the laser hair removal is also great and very effective. Can't forget the good old microdermabrasion for dark spots and wrinkles/fine lines which is a must do. Lastly , and from my experience the CoolSculpting fat removal is more than great!; - )

I love this place. I have been going here for over 10 years. Amanda is great. Had laser hair removal and achieved great results.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

How long does each session take?

Most sessions are completed in under 15 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Laser hair removal generally involves minimal discomfort. Most clients describe the sensation as a quick snap of a rubber band against the skin. The level of discomfort can vary depending on the treatment area and individual pain tolerance. At The Skin Center, we use advanced cooling methods to enhance comfort and minimize any pain during the procedure.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Your safety and comfort are our top priorities. The Skin Center’s laser hair removal is not only effective but also ensures minimal discomfort. Our Dual Cooling System, combining cooled air and a cooled tip, protects your skin and enhances comfort during the procedure.

How long does laser hair removal last?

Laser hair removal offers long-lasting results by targeting and reducing hair growth at the follicle. While individual experiences vary, many clients enjoy reduced hair growth for years after completing the recommended six to eight sessions. Periodic maintenance treatments may be necessary to uphold these results, especially due to factors like hormonal changes.

What Are the Potential Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal?

Side effects of laser hair removal are typically minor and temporary. Common side effects include redness, swelling, and slight irritation in the treated area, resembling a mild sunburn. These usually subside within a few hours to a few days. Rarely, some may experience temporary pigment changes in the skin, especially if post-treatment care instructions are not followed. At The Skin Center, we provide detailed care instructions and use state-of-the-art technology to minimize the risk of side effects.
