Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal at Trussville Urgent Care uses cutting-edge IPL and laser therapy to remove unwanted hair on your face or body. This new technology is a also a solution for treating dark, red, and even light hair- which has been difficult to treat in the past. This laser technology is also indicated for the treatment of over 60 skin conditions (such as hyperpigmentation, loose or sagging skin, scarring, and many more).

Laser hair removal helps permanently remove hair on your:

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

The treatment is safe, FDA-approved, and highly effective. It can eliminate the need to shave, pluck, wax, or use other non-permanent hair removal methods.

Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

To determine if laser hair removal is right for you, the Trussville Urgent Care team discusses your goals and medical history. They also examine hair in areas of concern and tailor a treatment plan best suited for you. The treatment can eliminate hair in just about any part of your body, with the exception of your eyelids.

How should I prepare for my treatment?

Follow your specialist’s instructions before undergoing laser hair removal at Trussville Urgent Care. It’s vital to avoid unprotected sun exposure, tanning lotions, tanning beds, and using other hair-removal methods before your scheduled visit.

What happens during laser hair removal?

Before treatment, your Trussville Urgent Care cleans the area and uses numbing cream to optimize comfort. They emit laser energy into hair follicles to heat and destroy them. You might feel a sensation akin to a rubber band snapping, but laser hair removal isn’t painful.

Each treatment may last 5-60 minutes, depending on how large the treatment area is. 

What can I expect after treatment?

After laser hair removal, the treated skin is often red or swollen, sometimes tender. Continue to protect it from the sun and follow up with the Trussville Urgent Care team for repeat treatments whenever needed. They often recommend a series of six treatment sessions to maximize the results. 

During the next few weeks and months, as hair enters new growth cycles, it begins to shed. Your aesthetic specialist lets you know when to schedule your next laser treatment session.
