Laser Hair Removal

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a procedure using a specialized laser focused primarily on melanin. Melanin is the pigment present in many hairs. When the beam pulses, the hair follicles absorb the light energy, which is converted to heat which damages the root of the actively growing hairs so the follicle is no longer able to produce hair as efficiently.  After  quality procedure and sufficient number of treatments are applied, you may expect the treatable hairs to be destroyed.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Reduction in unwanted hairs from the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini and nearly any area. Laser selectively targets hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. At Vivian Clinical Day Spa, we offer two laser light modalities so we may safely treat even darker skin tones. We operate one of the industry's leader in medical laser systems. Whether you are interested in eliminating ingrown hairs, the need to wax, reducing your shave time,  or eradicating leg veins, the Laser Specialists at Vivian Clinical Day Spa have got you covered!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What age can I receive laser treatment? Any adult of any age as long as the hair you want treated is pigmented and not red, blonde, white or grey can enjoy successful results.
  • Does it hurt? Everyone has different levels of sensitivities and certain areas may be less comfortable than others. Many of our clients are taken aback at how little discomfort they experienced. We ensure that any discomfort is manageable.
  • Will hair grow back? Sometimes. Laser hair treatment targets hair follicles, stopping new hair growth. So most of our clients do not experience new hair growth after laser hair treatment. Changes in hormones, however can lead to increased hair production. Usually one will come in for a touch-up for more permanent results. Even in cases of regrowth, the new hair is typically fairer and thinner than before treatment. Our laser specialists evaluate your health and treatment history to help you determine if laser hair treatment is right for your individual needs.
  • How many treatments do I need? We typically recommend a minimum of 6 treatments initially due to the fact that hair grows in cycles spaced weeks apart. This is why we space our clients treatments 4-12 weeks apart, depending on the areas they are having treated.

Before Treatment

Avoid sun exposure for a minimum of four weeks prior to treatment and always wear a broad spectrum sunscreen.

For your laser results to be optimal, ensure a close and thorough shave by taking your time and using a new blade the morning of your treatment. Also, skin must be clean and free of oils and lotions.

During Treatment

Your technician may prep the area to be treated by using a special pen for your skin to ensure a full and uniform treatment.

Bring your mobile device, headphones or a book to help pass the time. A targeted cooling device will be utilized to increase the comfort of your treatments.

After Treatment

Post treatment cooling by the targeted device will occur. In addition, cooling gel may be applied. 

Avoid hot showers, hot baths, hot tubs, steam room, sauna, working out, and excessive heat for 24 hours and sun exposure for 4 weeks. 

Treated hair appears to be growing, though they will fall out a few days up to a few weeks after treatment.
