How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

During laser hair removal, laser beam wavelengths pass through the skin targeting the hair. The high-energy laser light is safely absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the root of the hair. The light energy converts to heat, which destroys the tube-shaped follicles and prevents future hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin.

The laser treatment is customized to your skin color, hair color, thickness, and location of the hair. Our certified medical laser specialists use the state of the art Triton laser hair removal system from InMode, the latest and most effective laser technology for all skin types available today.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?

The average cost of laser hair removal nationally is $285 per session, according to 2019 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The price depends on the size of the area being treated, time required for treatment, and number of treatment sessions.

Single Session vs. Series/Package Price

A full series/package of six (6)laser hair removal sessions is recommended for optimal results because of hair growth cycles. The laser only works on growing hairs (anagen phase). Not all hairs are growing at the same time (telogen and catogen phases), so not all hair falls out during a given treatment.

How Hair Color Affects Results

You will achieve fantastic results if have brown or black hair on your face or body. The Triton laser system is less effective if the skin and hair color are too similar. Here’s why. The hair follicle needs pigmentation for the laser to effectively target it. Therefore, blonde and red hair are more resistant. White and grey hair will not respond to laser hair removal.

Frequently Asked Questions: Laser Hair Removal

What Does Laser Hair Removal Feel Like?

There may be very mild discomfort. Most people will feel a slight tingling or stinging sensation when the light pulses are emitted — similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. Some areas of the body are also more sensitive than others.

To minimize discomfort, the Triton laser hair removal applicator has a cooling sapphire tip that keeps the skin cool before, during, and after treatment. Numbing gel (Lidocaine) is also available upon request.

How Long Does A Session Last?

Laser hair removal at Viva is ultra fast. The total session time depends on the size of the treatment area. For example, treatment of both legs usually only requires a 30-minute session.

Best of all, there is no downtime. So you can return to your daily activities immediately following your session.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions Will I Need?

Hair grows in cycles — some hair follicles are actively in a growth phase, while others are resting. Every four weeks or so, new hair will enter the growth phase. Laser hair removal only eliminates hair in its growth stage. Multiple treatments are necessary to ensure that all hair is treated.

Your certified laser specialist will help you create a custom plan based on your hair color, skin type, and target treatment area.

For best results, we recommend a series of 6 treatment sessions, spaced 4-8 weeks apart. Most people will need a touch-up session annually to maintain improvement.

What Should I Expect After My Treatment?

Slight redness and swelling will occur (a condition called folliculitis), which usually dissipates in a few hours. The treated hair will fall out anytime from 3-14 days after your laser hair removal session, leaving you with smooth hair-free skin until your next growth cycle.

After each additional session, you’ll realize a reduction in the number of hairs in the treated area, with the hair becoming finer and lighter.

How To Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal requires a little preparation to get the best results from your treatments. Here are the things to do before your hair removal sessions begin:

  1. Shave the Area: Please shave the treatment area 24 hours hours prior to or right before your appointment. The laser will target the pigment located root of the hair.
  2. Stop Waxing, Plucking & Bleaching: Do not wax or tweeze hairs 2-4 weeks before your treatment. The hair must be present — a very short stubble — with its natural hair color to be treated effectively.
  3. Avoid Sun Exposure: Keep the area being treated out of the sun for the two weeks prior to your laser hair removal, including tanning beds and self-tanners.
  4. Remove Make-up & Lotions: Arrive to your appointment with the area to be treated clean, freshly shaved, and free of product — no makeup, creams or lotion.

What Is The Minimum Age for Laser Hair Removal?

Viva’s laser professionals strongly advise to wait until after puberty before laser hair removal. The body goes through hormonal changes that can cause regrowth.

Parental consent is required for laser hair removal treatment for ages 13-17.

How Long Do Results Last? Are They Permanent?

Laser hair removal heats up the hair follicles to prevent new hairs from growing. The hair follicles enter a state of dormancy for a much longer time — significantly longer that with shaving and waxing.

After your laser treatments, the hairs will grow back finer, lighter, and far fewer in number. Results typically last two years. However, maintenance sessions are required to keep the area without hair permanently.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Technically, no. Laser hair removal is often referred to as “permanent” hair removal procedure. However, it actually reduces the number of unwanted hairs in a given area by 80-90%. That’s why it is sometimes referred to as laser hair reduction. Electrolysis is the only truly permanent hair removal treatment.

What Are The Benefits?

Laser hair removal causes permanent hair reduction. You will have less hair after each treatment, plus it will reduce the number of ingrown hairs and help prevent razor bumps, burns, and irritations. The hair in the treated area will also become very fine and lighter in color. The ultimate benefit? Smoother, hair-free skin.
