How Does Laser Hair Reduction Work?
At your appointment, you will lie in one of our treatment rooms as areas of your face and body get cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and creams. During laser hair reduction, a technician will smooth out the area to create a direct pathway between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The laser's energy will focus on and kill the hair follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over 3 – 4 weeks to get your best results. Your appointments are staggered to allow the affected areas a chance to recover. The staggered appointments allow time for follicles in the dormant growth phase to change to the active growth stage so they can get treated. The GentleMax Pro technology we use at Pristine Med Spa can target the hair follicle alone, which preserves the skin and other tissue in the treatment area.

Laser Hair Reduction FAQs
How much does laser hair reduction cost?
A laser hair reduction treatment varies in cost based on the coverage area being addressed on the body, as well as how many treatment sessions you will need to attain a smooth result. To help you consider the benefits of choosing laser hair reduction, consider the energy and time you are putting into waxing, shaving, or other temporary hair removal methods. By comparison, laser hair removal is generally cheaper ultimately and will save you time and energy in the long-run. Our team will create a personalized treatment plan that includes the total number of appointments we suggest and pricing options to consider.
Why do I need multiple laser hair reduction sessions?
Follicles grow in phases. While some follicles are growing, others are resting. Since every hair follicle grows in various stages, multiple treatments are usually needed to target each hair follicle when it's active. Getting your treatments over a few weeks so you get the smoothest, most effective result.
Is laser hair reduction permanent?
An effective treatment, laser hair reduction offers lasting improvements. While patients can enjoy the results of the procedure for many years, it is considered semi-permanent because some follicles may not be affected by the laser. However, patients find most of their hair is gone once their plan is done, and even if stray hairs are still growing, it is easier to deal with. Additional laser hair reduction treatments can also be scheduled to take care of any stragglers or new growth.
Does laser hair reduction hurt?
Laser hair reduction can cause mild discomfort, but it is not painful. Patients may feel a slight snap as the laser targets and removes the follicle. Your technician can apply a local anesthetic on your skin before the start of your treatment. Patients who have been getting waxed report that laser hair reduction causes much less discomfort than a normal waxing session.
Which laser is best to remove hair?
There are many great lasers on the market today, Pristine Med Spa uses cutting-edge hair removal technology for men and women of varying hair types. The laser we invested in provides excellent results, but we upgrade our technology as newer lasers enter the marketplace. We encourage you to ask us for more information on our system in your initial consultation.
Is laser hair reduction safe to be used on the face?
Yes. Laser hair reduction is both safe and effective for reducing the amount of hair on your face. It should be noted, however, that normal side effects include mild redness and swelling. For this reason, it may be better for patients having laser hair reduction on the face to plan ahead rather than try to return to work or go out after the procedure.
