Laser Hair Removal is the most effective treatment for the reduction of unwanted hair. It works by selectively destroying individual hair follicles and discouraging growth from that follicle in the future. When properly administered, lasers target the pigment in hair follicles but leave the skin unharmed.
At Ageless Remedies SouthPark, we use only the latest laser technology, providing clients of all skin types with safe, effective hair reduction. It’s time to say goodbye to your razor for good.
Laser hair removal works by using lasers to target and damage hair follicles. The process relies on the absorption of laser light by the melanin pigment in the hair, which converts the light energy into heat, damaging the follicles. Multiple sessions are required for effective hair reduction, and it’s most effective for individuals with dark hair and light skin due to the contrast in melanin levels. Proper cooling mechanisms are often used to protect the skin during the procedure.
Hair growth is affected by many factors: hormones, medication, age, hereditary issues, skin color, and even the weather. No two people have the same response to a laser treatment and the treatments need to be individualized. Generally, you can obtain an 80% or greater clearance level. Touch-up treatments may be needed in the coming years especially if you start at a young age.
A typical laser hair removal session involves the following steps:
After the session, you’ll receive post-care instructions, which typically include avoiding sun exposure and certain skincare products. You may experience temporary redness and mild swelling in the treated area.
Multiple sessions, usually spaced several weeks apart, are required to target hair in different growth cycles and achieve your desired hair reduction.
Laser hair removal is a treatment done by many men and women alike who have unwanted body hair, whether that’s on their legs, underarms, or other areas.
Oftentimes, laser hair removal can bring long-term cost savings. Rather than routinely buying razors or hair removal creams, or scheduling wax appointments, laser hair removal can stop hair growth before it even happens. Additionally, there are plenty of time savings with this treatment. The convenience of never having to spend time in the shower shaving your legs again is preferred by many.
Laser hair removal is also a precise treatment; in contrast to waxing, it targets specific hairs without damaging the skin. Bumps or cuts are uncommon with laser hair removal, while razors or creams like Nair can often bring those side effects.
If you’re looking for a simple and effective treatment for your unwanted hair, laser removal may be right for you. You can have a boost in self-confidence knowing you’ll never have to be afraid to show off your body by the pool again.
After a consultation and the decision that laser hair removal is right for you, you’ll be given certain guidelines on what to do before the treatment. You should:
After initial treatment, you may have to schedule follow-up sessions to see visible results and ensure long-term effectiveness of the treatment. However, there are certain immediate post-treatment care guidelines you should follow to maximize the laser’s effect:

Anyone who has unwanted hair growth is a good candidate for laser hair removal, but there are certain hair and skin types that are better suited to the treatment than others.
Laser hair removal is most effective on individuals with lighter skin tones and darker hair. This is because the laser targets the contrast between the pigmentation in the hair (melanin) and the surrounding skin. Light skin and dark hair mean the laser can easily distinguish between the two. However, advancements in laser technology have made it possible to treat a broader range of skin tones safely and effectively.
Light or fine hair, such as blonde, white, or gray, may not respond as well to laser hair removal because they contain less melanin. People with these hair colors may require more sessions or alternative hair removal methods, which can be discussed with our staff.
Before ever undergoing laser hair removal, you’ll have a consultation, during which your hair and skin type may be assessed to determine your suitability for the procedure. You also may have a patch test on a small area of the skin to see how it reacts to the laser and to check for any adverse reactions.
The consultation and patch test are crucial steps to ensure the safety and effectiveness of laser hair removal. They help identify any potential risks or concerns and allow Ageless Remedies SouthPark practitioners to tailor the treatment plan to your specific needs and characteristics.
