Laser Hair Removal

Why choose laser hair removal?

Traditional hair removal efforts take a significant amount of time. Whether you’re shaving, using depilatory creams, waxing, or heading to a salon for professional hair removal, those are minutes in your days you don’t get back. 

Laser hair removal at Femme Next Generation Women's Care delivers lasting results in a few short appointments. You’ll enjoy the convenience of not having to worry about shaving or plucking. If you have sensitive skin, you’ll also enjoy fewer ingrown hairs and the end of razor burn. 

How does laser hair removal work?

To understand laser hair removal, it helps to think about how your hair grows. Hair follicles, which are tiny sacs in your skin that contain a hair root where hair originates, cover the majority of your body.

In the very early stages of growth, your hair cells are alive, but they die before they reach or exit the surface of your skin. That’s why hair removal is effective, and also why it doesn’t hurt when you get a haircut!

Your hair goes through cycles of growth, transition, and resting before starting the cycle anew. Laser hair removal at Femme Next Generation Women's Care works by targeting hair in the active growth cycle. The process uses concentrated beams of light. 

That light is attracted to the melanin, or pigment, in each hair shaft. Once absorbed the light creates heat that damages the hair follicle and impedes regrowth while leaving surrounding cells untouched. 

Is laser hair removal painful?

Laser hair removal is not a painful process. There’s no need for anesthesia and no recovery or downtime. You’ll be able to return to your normal activities immediately after your sessions. 

Some men and women report a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band against the skin. Others notice virtually no sensations during treatments. If you have especially sensitive skin, you can use a special cream to numb the area prior to your appointments. 

It will take several sessions to achieve optimal results. The team at Femme Next Generation Women's Care will discuss the timing of your appointments and estimate how many sessions you’ll need.
