Laser Hair Removal Q & A

 What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is the process of removing your body hair with a medical-grade laser. At Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa, the team uses the Vectus® laser by Cynosure®, a diode laser with a cooled tip, to help you remove or greatly reduce the amount of hair on your:

  • Face
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bikini area
  • Arms
  • Legs

The Vectus laser can remove large areas of body hair evenly and consistently during a single treatment.

What happens during laser hair removal?

When you come to Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa for your laser hair removal treatment, the team gives you safety eyewear to protect your eyes during the procedure. During the treatment, the  Vectus laser emits a concentrated beam of light energy that targets your hair follicles without damaging the skin surrounding them. 

The light energy heats the follicles in your skin, damaging them permanently. After laser hair removal, many of your follicles can no longer produce hair at all, while others can only produce fine, virtually invisible hairs. 

The Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa team recommends booking 3-5 laser hair removal sessions to complete your treatment. Your body hair grows in phases, and you must target each follicle with laser hair removal during its growth phase. If your body hair grows back over time because of hormonal fluctuations or treatments, you can easily book maintenance laser hair removal sessions.

What are the advantages of laser hair removal?

While shaving, waxing, sugaring, and other hair removal methods maintain some popularity, many people who prefer hairless skin change their routine to include laser hair removal because of its many advantages. You might prefer laser hair removal for these reasons:

  • Minimal discomfort
  • Fast treatment times
  • Long-lasting results
  • Low maintenance 
  • Fewer ingrown hairs
  • No razor burn, bumps, or cuts

With laser hair removal, you don’t need to put valuable time and effort into maintaining your smooth skin on a weekly or even monthly basis. The long-lasting, predictable results are highly convenient for busy men and women who prefer hairless skin. 

Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?

In order to know for sure whether or not you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal, you should sit down for a quick consultation at Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa. Thanks to Cynosure’s one-of-a-kind Skintel® Melanin Reader, the Vectus laser assesses your skin type and tone so the team can adjust the laser’s settings accordingly. Your treatment is safe and effective for your specific skin type.

If you’re ready for smooth, hairless skin with less hassle, call Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa for a laser hair removal consultation or book your visit online today.
