Hair Removal Q & A

Amour Medical Aesthetics, Inc

Where can I get laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a popular treatment that has the power to reduce hair growth all over your body, even in the most sensitive areas. Some of the most popular areas for laser hair removal include:

  • Legs
  • Bikini line
  • Face and lip
  • Underarms

Laser hair removal reduces the need for constant shaving or waxing in these areas. There’s no downtime, and you can resume daily activities right after.

How does laser hair removal work?

Amour Medical Aesthetics, Inc uses the ICON™ laser to target unwanted hair follicles.

The laser reduces and stunts hair growth with the use of a concentrated beam of light directed at the pigment in the hair follicles. The pigment absorbs the light, damaging the follicles enough to stunt future growth.

Because the laser targets pigment, those with lighter skin tones and darker hair see the best results.

How long does it take to see results?

Results vary, but you can start to see a reduction in hair growth after about 1-3 treatments. You might have to undergo anywhere from 6-12 treatments to see full results, sometimes more depending on your specific situation and goals.

To achieve the best results, the team at Amour Medical Aesthetics, Inc recommends that you receive treatment every six weeks. In between treatments, you should avoid sun exposure to the area and shaving or waxing. This ensures the best results for the following treatments.

Does laser hair removal last forever?

Laser hair removal can reduce hair growth for years on end. But, unfortunately, hair follicles can grow back. This typically doesn’t happen until about 6-8 years after your series of laser hair removal treatments, but the time frame on hair regrowth varies from person to person.  

If you begin to notice signs of regrowth, the come back to Amour Medical Aesthetics, Inc for another hair removal session. The staff is happy to perform touch-ups to stubborn areas.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Because laser hair removal uses a concentrated light beam to damage hair follicles, you might experience a sensation during each procedure. Most men and women report that treatment feels like a gentle pinch or snap of a rubber band.

To ensure comfort during treatment, a numbing cream is available. Your provider can apply the cream 20-30 minutes prior to treatment to numb the area for a pain-free experience.
