Boston’s beauty queens are raving about this hair-free revolution. Ready to join?

Who hasn’t winced at the sting of waxing or cursed a missed patch after shaving? Getting rid of unwanted hair is often fraught with nicks, pain, and inconsistent results. Many of us have tales of woe involving rashes, in-grown hairs, and that moment when the hot wax is just a tad too hot. It’s no surprise that women (and men) often express frustration and exasperation over their traditional hair removal routines.

But what if we told you that there’s a method that offers a longer-lasting, almost permanent solution? No more weekly shaving or monthly waxing. You can do so with laser hair removal.


What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to remove unwanted hair. Unlike the temporary solutions of shaving or waxing, laser hair removal targets the follicles at their root. This slows down and even permanently stops hair growth in the treated areas.

At Laser MD Medspa, we use the gold standard for laser hair removal – the Candela GentleMax Pro. We can use this machine to eliminate all unwanted hair from multiple areas of the body, including the:

  • face
  • neck
  • shoulders
  • underarms
  • arms
  • chest
  • back
  • stomach
  • bikini zone
  • leg


How does it work?

Laser hair removal is precise, targeting only the hair follicles and sparing the surrounding skin. By focusing exclusively on the follicles, it ensures unwanted hairs are addressed without causing undue stress or damage to the skin.

Once damaged, the hair follicles can no longer produce hair, or at least not as thick and quickly as before. Over several sessions, the hair in the treated area becomes finer, lighter, and eventually might disappear altogether.


What can I expect during my laser hair removal treatment?

The treatment starts with a consultation. One of our highly trained specialists will evaluate your skin and hair type to determine the most effective approach for you. You might be asked to avoid sun exposure and certain medications before the treatment.

On the day, the area to be treated is cleansed, and you’ll be given special protective eyewear. Your aesthetician will then adjust the laser settings based on your specific requirements. A cooling gel is often applied to the skin to help the laser glide smoothly and mitigate any discomfort you might feel. The actual procedure feels like a series of quick, small stings as the laser pulses over the area.


How long does laser hair removal last?

While laser hair removal does offer a significant reduction in hair growth, it’s essential to know that it may not result in complete hair elimination. After a series of treatments (typically 4-6 sessions, spaced 4-8 weeks apart), many people experience 70% to 90% permanent hair reduction. To maintain the results, touch-up sessions might be needed every year or so.


Is laser hair removal permanent?

The FDA has classified laser hair removal as a method of “permanent hair reduction” rather than “permanent hair removal”. This means while a significant amount of hair will be reduced, some hair might grow back, although finer and less noticeable. Results vary from person to person, but the goal is to dramatically reduce the need for shaving or waxing.


Does laser hair removal hurt? Is there downtime?

Everyone’s pain threshold is different. Some describe the sensation as a rubber band snapping against the skin or a warm bearable pinch. The good news? Each session becomes progressively less painful as less hair is targeted.

As for downtime, laser hair removal is often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure”. Most people experience mild redness or swelling post-treatment, but this usually subsides within a day or two. You can resume your regular activities right away but do avoid direct sun exposure and strenuous exercise for a couple of days.


How much does laser hair removal cost?

Cost varies depending on several factors: the size of the area being treated, the number of sessions required, and where you’re having the treatment. For instance, smaller areas like the upper lip might cost less, while larger areas like the back or legs would be more expensive.

Laser hair removal is generally safe when performed by trained professionals. Common side effects include temporary redness and swelling.

This is why it’s important to get your laser hair removal treatment from a certified aesthetician and follow aftercare instructions and use sunscreen to minimize risks.
