How does laser hair removal work?

Hairfree Solutions uses an advanced modern technology laser that works for a wide range of skin and hair types. Hairfree Solutions is the area’s premier permanent hair removal treatment provider!

Laser hair removal is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure involving the use of laser energy and highly concentrated beams that damage your unwanted hair follicles. The laser wavelength is absorbed by dark pigment in the root, called melanin, which creates heat and destroys the growth centers of the follicle. In doing so this causes permanent hair destruction inhibiting future hair growth.

Will it grow back?

The short answer is no. Once the hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow new hair. However, there are invariably a few hair follicles that manage to escape the laser during treatment.

Laser Hair Removal is proven to permanently reduce unwanted hair. Clients are 90-95% hair free after completing all 6-8 sessions. To properly target your active (antigen) growth cycle, the treatments are spaced four to six weeks apart. Hormones, pregnancy, medications, and medical conditions may affect your results.

Treatments are effective for dark hair, multiple hair types, regardless of skin color. Laser does not affect blonde, gray, red, or very fine hair called vellus hair.

Hairfree Solutions is the only one-stop location in the area for all your hair removal needs! Electrolysis may be incorporated into your treatment regimen to tackle the light or fine hairs.

Who can be treated?

Any area (excluding eyebrows) and any person with dark hair can be treated successfully with laser hair removal. We recommend treatments no earlier than puberty.

Can I laser over my tattoos?

No, you cannot laser over a tattoo. The laser will explode the ink and burn the skin. Please advise your laser technician of any visible and non-visible tattoos.

Will it hurt?

Hairfree Solutions’ laser is extremely unique in that it is virtually painless!!! Yes! You have read that right! You may feel a warming sensation and an occasional pinch. Some have compared it to having a hot rock massage! Our state of the art laser has a cooling head that chills to -3 degrees. The sweeping in-motion technology keeps the laser in constant motion ensuring full coverage of the treatment area and delivers results with shorter treatment times. No more blotchy, jolting, slow laser treatments!

How do I prepare for my laser treatments?

You can shave! In fact, you NEED to shave!

This applies for laser clients only. Electrolysis clients please leave 3 days of hair growth prior to your treatment. If you arrive unshaven, there will be a $25 shaving fee added to your service.

Prior to your laser treatment, be sure to:

  • Avoid sunbathing, tanning beds, and spray tans two weeks prior
  • Avoid removing your hair root, such as plucking, threading, or waxing
  • Avoid all cosmetic procedures and treatments to the skin two weeks prior
  • No lotions, perfumes, deodorant, or makeup
  • Come clean!!

What can I expect after my laser treatment?

You might see some pink in the area and have mild swelling. Most individuals notice no reaction! There’s no downtime, and you can get back to your day immediately. You should avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for two weeks. Also avoid heat such as hot showers, saunas, hot tubs, and extreme workouts for two days after your treatment.
