What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal has become one of the most common cosmetic treatments in the United States. It is an effective method for the long-term removal of hair follicles on the face and/or body. This procedure usually leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother while providing longer-lasting results compared to other hair removal methods. Our experienced team at Body Werks Chicago in Chicago, IL, performs safe and fast laser hair removal services for both men and women in frequently needed areas like the back, legs, arms, face, chest, and bikini area.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

  • Are in good physical health

What Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?

ProcedureOn the day of your procedure, you can lie in a private treatment room as areas of your face and body being treated are washed to eliminate dirt, oil, and lotions. During the procedure, a technician will stretch out the skin to provide a direct path between the hair follicle root and the laser. The laser beam will focus on and destroy the hair follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again. Typically, you will need to get 6 or more sessions with 4-6 weeks in between to achieve your optimal results. Your sessions are spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to heal. This also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase of growth to change to the active growth phase so the laser can be effective. The specialized technology we use at Body Werks Chicago is able to target the hair follicle alone, preserving the skin in the area being treated.

Laser Hair Removal FAQ

How much does laser hair removal cost?
Getting laser hair removal will vary in cost based on the size of the treatment area, in addition to how many sessions are needed to attain optimal results. To understand the benefits of laser hair removal, think of the energy and time you are spending on waxing, shaving, or other temporary methods. By comparison, laser hair removal is typically less expensive overall and can save you time and energy in the long run. We will create a personalized treatment plan with the number of sessions you need and the costs.

Is laser hair removal permanent?
Considered an effective treatment, laser hair removal produces lasting results. While you can enjoy the results of the treatment for many years, laser hair removal is considered semi-permanent since some hair follicles may continue growing. Regardless, patients find the majority of the hair is dormant after their treatment plan has concluded, and even if some hairs pop up, it is easier to address. More laser hair removal sessions can also be needed to address new growth and any stragglers.

Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal can cause some discomfort, but it isn't considered too painful. Patients should feel a small snap when the laser targets and removes each follicle. We can use a numbing ointment to the surface of the skin before your treatment. Patients who have been getting waxed report that laser hair removal feels much less uncomfortable than a normal waxing session.
