First, we ask that you see one of our Skin Care Specialists for a consultation so that we can discuss your personal goals and create the best plan for you. Not everyone is a candidate for LHR. Blonde, white, or gray hair may not have enough pigment to be a candidate for LHR. Having an active new tan or tweezing or plucking hair is a contraindication to treating that day. If you desire topical numbing medication (it is not necessary with our device), this will be provided during your consultation. Then, we will get you scheduled for your first treatment.
On the day of your treatment
LHR is performed by our licensed Nurse Practitioners or the Licensed Cosmetic Therapist. If you purchased topical numbing medication at your consultation, you will apply this 30 minutes prior to procedure. Laser energy is delivered through a small hand piece operated by your practitioner. The laser’s pulse is typically compared to the snap of a rubber band.
Skin absorbs the energy
The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the skin and converted to heat. The heat is then absorbed by the fair follicles being targeted, while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected.
What to expect
Over the next 1-3 weeks, you will notice the treated hair falling out.
With every subsequent treatment of laser hair removal in Cincinnati, you will see fewer and fewer hairs return. Returning for your next treatment within the 4 to 6 week window and finishing the entire series of treatments is critical to getting the best results. If you miss a treatment by more than 2 weeks, you will NOT have optimal results.
