Popularized over the past decade, one of Mia Aesthetics’ latest MedSpa offerings is laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. Done over the course of several treatments, laser hair removal has the ability to leave your skin buttery smooth and hair-free. Treatments are typically sold as single sessions or as a package of six or more treatments. Depending on hair thickness and color, however, some patients require more treatments than others, and may need to continually get touch-up treatments three to six months apart. Laser hair removal works best on patients with dark hair and a light skin tone. But regardless of your unique hair type and genetic makeup, the outcome will still typically be smoother skin and less grooming time.
Depending on the area being treated and the patients’ pain tolerance level, the laser pulses given during treatment may be slightly uncomfortable. Many patients compare the pain to a rubber band snapping over the skin. However, there are preventative measures that can be taken to reduce the overall pain of the treatment. Before heading into the clinic for treatment, patients can take an over-the-counter pain reliever like Tylenol to take the edge off of the laser. Additionally, a topical numbing cream can be applied to the treated area to minimize the sting of the laser. Lastly, women who are undergoing laser treatment should avoid going into the office for treatment just before or during their period, as their pain tolerance decreases during this time.
Where Can I Get Laser Hair Removal?
Almost every part of the body can be treated by laser hair removal. For women, some of the most popular treatment areas are the armpit, bikini line, full Brazilian bikini area, upper lip and legs. Mia Aesthetics splits up treatment areas up by size: small, medium, large and extra-large. Areas where the skin is thin or where there are more nerve endings will likely be more painful than other areas. For example, the armpit, bikini line and Brazilian area tend to be extra sensitive and can be treated with a numbing cream beforehand for added comfort. The following is a list of areas that can be treated according to size:
- Upper lip
- Bikini Line
- Full Face
- Neck (Front or Back)
- Linea Alba (Upper or Lower)
- Large areas:
- Back (Upper or Lower)
- Arms (Upper or Lower)
- Legs (Upper or Lower)
- Whatever your unique needs are, laser hair removal can offer you with a refined aesthetic and a confidence boost. We also offer packages for full body hair removal at a reduced rate!
Men can benefit from laser hair removal just as much as women. For men who struggle with abundant, hard to reach body hair that makes them feel self-conscious, laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to achieve significant hair reduction. Or perhaps you are a male who simply prefers to have smooth skin allover – laser hair removal can do that too! Some of the most popular treatment areas sought after by men are the back, shoulders and chest. Depending on how coarse or thick the hair being treated is, some hair areas on men may require a few additional treatments. Similar to the package we offer for women, Mia Aesthetics also offers a full body hair removal package for men at a reduced rate.
Laser Hair Removal Cost
Laser hair removal costs vary from clinic to clinic. The main thing to look for when researching where to have laser hair removal done is the quality of the laser. A high-quality laser may cost a little bit more than a lower tier laser, but typically, the results will last much longer and be more noticeable.
