Unwanted body or facial hair can be time-consuming and costly to get rid of. Time and money spent shaving, tweezing, epilation, or waxing can make your skin irritated, only to have the hair grow back soon after. All of these factors can cause unnecessary stress over unwanted hair, making the need for a long-term solution: laser hair removal.

At Renew Wellness & Aesthetics, laser hair removal in Oklahoma City permanently reduces hair on the face or body by killing the hair follicle and the hair’s ability to grow. The laser technology behind this treatment targets the melanin, or pigment, of the hair to zap the hair follicle at the source. Laser hair removal can work on many body zones, and patients love the long-term effects and smooth skin from this treatment.

The Laser Hair Removal Process

What to Expect

Consultation

Before your laser hair removal in Oklahoma City, you'll meet with a Renew provider for a consultation. We will assess if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal. Certain skin and hair colors do not respond well to laser hair removal, so it's important to ensure that you are an ideal candidate before the treatment. Once we determine that you are a candidate for laser hair removal, we will determine how many treatment sessions you'll need based on your desired results.

Laser Hair Removal Treatment

For your laser hair removal treatment, your provider will give you protective eyewear and ensure you are comfortable before beginning. Then, they will start and run the handpiece over the treatment area(s). You will feel a heat and tolerable snapping sensation from the laser, similar to a rubber band. Laser hair removal is relatively quick, though treatment time varies based on the size of the area being treated.

Next Steps

After your laser hair removal session at Renew Wellness & Aesthetics , your provider will explain any aftercare protocol. A series of laser hair removal treatments produces the best results, so will set your next session appointment(s) afterward.

Pre-Care Instructions:

  • Avoid sun exposure and self-tanners for 14 days before and after treatment.
  • Come to your appointment cleanly shaved to allow the laser to easily target the follicle, not the hair itself.
  • Come to your appointment with clean bare skin without oils, creams, or lotions.
  • Consult with your doctor about any medications that may interact with laser hair removal.

Post-Care Instructions:

  • Avoid sun exposure and self-tanner for 14 days after treatment.
  • Protect your skin with SPF.
  • Do not use products that increase photosensitivity.

Frequently Asked Questions

How painful is laser hair removal?

For most people, laser hair removal pain is minimal, especially when compared to other hair removal treatments like waxing. Many describe the feeling as the quick snapping sensation of a rubber band against the skin and find it easily tolerable.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal is absolutely safe with the qualified providers and top-of-the-line equipment at Renew Wellness & Aesthetics in Oklahoma City.

What types of hair can be treated?

Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair. Temporary hair loss almost always occurs after each laser treatment, regardless of hair color. However, the laser’s effectiveness for permanent hair reduction is strongly correlated with hair color. Patients with light-colored hair are less likely to experience permanent hair reduction compared to those with darker hair.

How many treatments are necessary?

Laser hair removal works by disabling hairs that are in their active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter the growth phase at different times, a series of treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart are necessary to disable all hair follicles in a given area. During your complimentary consultation, your provider will discuss the number of treatments needed to disable all of the follicles in a given treatment area.
Following multiple, appropriately timed treatments, a long-term growth delay is typically seen. Following several treatments, any remaining hair is much finer, lighter, and more cosmetically acceptable than before treatment. Many patients obtain permanent hair removal, but some people require periodic maintenance treatments to keep unwanted hair away.

Are there any side effects?

In the vast majority of cases, patients experience only temporary redness in the treated area.

How much does laser hair removal cost?

The cost of laser hair removal treatment varies, depending primarily upon the size of the area you wish to have treated. During your free consultation, our expert team will be happy to discuss the cost of your laser hair removal treatment plan.

What will the treated area look like after the procedure?

Immediately after treatment, the area will be slightly red in color and will feel like a mild sunburn. This reaction subsides over a few hours, and then the treated sites usually return to their normal appearance. The amount of discomfort after this procedure is usually minimal and does not limit most normal physical activities.

How permanent is laser hair removal?

How permanent laser hair removal is for you depends on your hair's density, growth cycle, and other factors. Many people may need a yearly maintenance session to make their results permanent. Any hair regrowth after laser hair removal is usually less dense, finer, and lighter color. 

Is it worth getting laser hair removal?

For those bothered by unwanted facial or body hair, laser hair removal can make a meaningful impact. Removing unwanted hair takes a great deal of time and energy while continuing to grow back. Those with painful irritation from shaving or waxing treatments love the smooth skin and long-term results of laser hair removal.

What are the benefits of getting laser hair removal?

Compared to electrolysis, laser hair removal is a faster, less painful process. It is also a safer, gentler, and more effective alternative to waxing. Laser hair removal also eliminates the after-effects of shaving, including redness and ingrown hairs.
