Does it Hurt, and is it Safe?

Some people only feel the heat; others say it feels like snapping a rubber band against your skin. It all depends on your personal threshold. The good news is that laser hair removal is safe. The FDA-approved the use of lasers to remove hair back in 1997. The only caveat is that you need a professional team to ensure your results are delivered safely.

At BodyLase®, we’re staffed by experienced providers who specialize in laser treatments. Our providers are certified experts and are happy to work with you to give you the results you want.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

When you come in for a laser treatment you will be asked to lie down in a comfortable position and may change into a robe if you wish. You will also be asked to wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser light. 

The Process is Simple

  • We will mark the treatment area with a white pencil.
  • The laser will be applied to your skin. At this point, you may hear beeping and notice the odor of singed hair.
  • Some discomfort may be felt as the laser goes to work.
  • After a few minutes, your procedure will be done.

Once you’re all set, you are free to return home – It’s that simple! There’s no downtime or bed rest needed after laser hair removal. You may experience some redness, but this is temporary and should go away in a few hours.

Are There Side Effects?

Side effects are mild – that’s the main benefit of laser hair removal. Some people can have temporary redness, itching, and swelling after treatment. But, these side effects usually go away within a few hours, and most can be soothed by applying aloe vera to the skin.

Scars, burns, or blisters can occur in rare cases. However, their appearance is usually due to not following aftercare instructions. After your session, we’ll give you all the info you need to make sure your skin remains healthy.
