Laser Hair Removal in Louisville
Shaving. Waxing. Plucking. These are grooming chores that start with early adulthood and continue for life. Unwanted hair can be removed. But then it grows back. And you do it all again. Unless—you decide you’ve had enough and look at a permanent way to remove hair with laser technology. Lasers have been used for years to provide precise, permanent hair removal, and Vibrant Med helps people with laser hair removal in Louisville and North Central Kentucky.
Our specially trained technicians can help you target the hair you’d like to do without and make sure it stays away.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal occurs in stages because hair grows in cycles and must be at the right maturity level for the follicle to be destroyed. Typically, several treatments over a period of time are used to remove hair from an area.
In preparation for treatment, you should avoid waxing or plucking for six weeks before the treatment (shaving is still OK). This assures that the laser will have maximum impact on the follicle and prevent it from regenerating. We also caution patients to avoid sun exposure during this time—again, so the light from the laser has full effect.
Before the treatment, hair is trimmed. Then a topical solution desensitizes the skin and our technician calibrates the laser to match your skin type and color. Just before treatment, a cooling gel is applied to protect the skin.
Then laser energy is applied to the treated area. Discomfort is minimal, and the treatment usually only takes a few minutes. The treatment may be a little longer if a larger area, such as the back or legs are being treated. Afterward, lotion and ice may be used to cool and soothe the treated area.
Once the treatment is complete, you’ll begin to see results in the next few days, as hair falls out. Your skin may look reddish or sunburned for a day or two, but this dissipates quickly, and you can continue with your daily routine without much disruption.
With the next treatment, you’ll see less hair, and soon, you’ll have smooth skin that doesn’t require constant hair maintenance. Because the hair doesn’t grow back.
