What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that targets unwanted hair and reduces new hair regrowth. The aesthetics experts at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic use the Splendor X laser hair removal system by Lumenis to perform laser hair treatments that leave your skin smooth, silky, and touchably soft.
How does laser hair removal work?
Splendor X uses dual-wavelength technology to gently heat hair follicles to the point of damage. After treatment, the follicle releases the existing hair and makes it so that new hair is unable to grow in the follicle in the future.
Which areas can be treated?
The most common areas for laser hair removal include:
- Upper lip
- Bikini area
The skilled specialists at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic can perform laser hair removal anywhere you have unwanted hair.
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal offers many benefits, such as:
- Minimal discomfort
- Short treatments
- Long-lasting results
The dual-wavelength technology of Splendor X makes it more effective than other laser hair removal systems.
What should I expect during laser hair removal treatments?
No anesthesia is required for laser hair removal. Still, you can request that your Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic expert apply a topical numbing gel to your skin before the procedure begins. You may feel some warmth or pinching during your treatment, but most patients don’t find this to be painful.
You may have a little irritation or redness afterward, but these typically subside within a day.
How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?
After your first treatment, you’ll notice a reduction of hair in the treated area right away. However, hair grows in stages, so a series of up to seven sessions is usually needed for optimal results. After your consultation, your Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic specialist designs a treatment plan based on your goals and other individual factors.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal can significantly slow down hair regrowth, but some follicles will heal over time and begin to produce hair once again. Maintenance treatments can extend your results and leave you with beautifully soft, smooth skin for an extended time.
