Laser Hair Removal Q & A


How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by using concentrated beams of light to damage the root that produces new hair cells. To understand the process, it helps to think about how your hair grows normally. 

Your skin is covered with hair follicles, at the base of which sits a hair root. The root creates new hair cells that stack atop one another, eventually extending through the surface of your skin. 

Every hair on your body goes through a series of phases, including an active growth phase, resting phase, and shedding phase. 

When the laser pulses on the surface of your skin, the light is absorbed by the pigment in each hair. That light is converted into heat and damages the hair root enough to prevent normal regrowth. 

Which areas can be treated using laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can treat numerous areas of your body, including:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Underarms
  • Face
  • Abdomen
  • Chest

You can treat one area at a time, or schedule an appointment for multiple areas during the same visit. 

Is laser hair removal painful?

Indigo MedSpa uses the excel® HR laser hair removal system, a platform that offers a combination of laser wavelengths to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair. The system is also a great option for treating people with darker skin who were previously not good candidates for laser hair removal.

Many people who’ve had laser hair removal report a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band against their skin as the laser pulses. For others, treatments are virtually free of sensation.

Is laser hair removal expensive?

While the upfront cost of laser hair removal might seem expensive, when you think about the long-term benefits, the investment makes solid financial sense. To begin, all those razors, wax kits, depilatory creams, and trips to the salon are not free. Those costs add up over time. 

There’s also the value of your time to consider. Laser hair removal offers soft, smooth skin in just a few sessions. You won’t need to think about whether it’s time to shave, and you won’t have to deal with ingrown hairs or skin irritation.
