Laser Hair Removal in Brooklyn

There’s a big reason why laser hair removal is such a popular medical spa service. It saves time because you don’t need to constantly shave; it’s not extensively painful like waxing, and it can boost self-esteem if you have trouble with excessive body hair. 

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an alternative to shaving, waxing, and/or electrolysis. It’s a very popular service because of how convenient it is and its semi-permanent results. The treatment uses laser energy to damage the hair follicle so that it’s unable to grow hair anymore. 

Laser hair removal works by using laser light energy. The energy is applied directly to the hair follicles, where the hair’s pigment absorbs it and turns it into heat. Once this happens, the hair follicles lose their ability to grow hair.

I had hair laser removal done at JunoMediSpa. Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. The procedure was not painful at all. I’m very satisfied with the results. It was a great experience! Definitely will come back to this place!

How to prepare for a laser hair removal treatment

We recommend that you avoid sun exposure for three days before your laser hair removal treatment. We ask this so that you don’t experience pigmentation. For six weeks prior to your appointment, do not wax or tweeze any hairs in the areas where you will be receiving treatment. You will need to shave the area that you’re having treated the day before your appointment using a fresh new razor. 

What happens in a laser hair removal treatment?

If you’re having laser hair removal done in an area that requires you to get undressed, be sure to wear comfortable, easy-to-remove clothing. Layers are always a good idea. We will give you protective eyewear and cleanse your skin. You may also be given a topical numbing cream.

The laser energy is administered using a hand-held device that focuses on each hair follicle in the area. Patients say that the laser “zaps” feel very tolerable — something like a tiny pin prick or a hot rubber band snapping on the skin. The amount of time your treatment takes will depend on the area(s) you’re having treated.  

How many treatments will be needed?

It’s important for those who have laser hair removal done to understand that every individual is different, and the amount of treatments needed will vary from person to person because everyone has different types of skin, hair, problem areas, and hair thickness.

Multiple laser hair removal treatments are necessary to achieve the desired results. This is because our hair grows in phases, and some of the follicles will be dormant when you come in for your first session. In order to target all of them, typically 4 to 6 treatments (scheduled 4 to 8 weeks apart) are required. With each of these treatments, there will be about a 10% to 15% reduction in hair growth.

Aftercare and results

A few days after your laser hair removal treatment, you will notice hair beginning to fall out. These hairs will grow back, but they’ll be much finer, and then they’ll fall out again. This process continues until the hairs don’t come back at all.

We recommend the following for laser hair removal aftercare:

  • Use aloe vera as needed.
  • Avoid extremely hot water for at least 48 hours.
  • Do not apply makeup or perfume to the treated area for 24 to 48 hours.
  • Avoid sun exposure for one week.
  • If you see stray hairs in the treated area, leave them alone.
  • If you see any blisters, leave them alone.
  • Try your best to avoid sweating for at least 24 hours.
  • Avoid any other skin procedures for two weeks.

Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?

If you’re in the Brooklyn area and you’re considering laser hair removal, it may be the ideal procedure for your needs and lifestyle. The best candidates for laser hair removal are women and men in overall good health who want to decrease or remove unwanted body hair growth, and who do not want to use shaving, waxing, or electrolysis to accomplish this.
