Laser Hair Removal FAQs

It is using energy from a laser to permanently remove your hair. For most people, after 7-10 treatments, over 85% of hairs in the treated area will be gone forever.

The pigment in your hair absorbs the energy from the laser. That energy travels down the hair shaft to the hair follicle and destroys the follicle – permanently. This is different than waxing, tweezing or threading where the hair is pulled out of the follicle, but remains intact to grow a new hair.

The laser is only able to permanently destroy the hair follicle when the hair is in the anagen phase, also called the growth phase. Not all of your hairs are in the growth phase at one time. For example, your underarm hair only has about 30% of hairs in the growth phase about every six weeks.

For most people, it usually takes between 7 and 10 treatments to reach over 85% hair reduction in any given area. You can expect to see between 10-30% hair reduction after each treatment, and the effect is cumulative. For some people, more treatments are needed to reach the goal of over 85% reduction. The following are examples of the types of people that may require more treatments:

  1. Individuals on hormone replacement therapy.
  2. Individuals who have experienced a change in hormones. Example: An increase growth in pubic hair or facial hair after pregnancy.
  3. Individuals with little contrast between their hair and skin. Example: Fair skin with very light brown hairs.

*For the individuals referenced in the above examples, an Unlimited Laser Hair Removal Package will give you the best results.

Yes. Individuals with medical conditions that make their skin sensitive to sunlight (example: Lupus) and/or are taking medications (example: some antibiotics) that make the skin sensitive to sunlight. Our Registered Nurse will review your medical history and medications and make sure Laser Hair Removal is safe for you.

Burning, hyperpigmentation, and hypopigmentation of the skin. These events are rare, and the risk is reduced here at Xanadu because our laser technician is a Registered Nurse with expert knowledge of lasers. She ensures the laser settings are safe for your skin. The risk is also reduced by not exposing treatment areas to sunlight and/or tanning beds.

  • No more shaving, waxing, tweezing, threading, or using chemical hair removing products.
  • No more in grown hairs.
  • You are always ready to wear that tank top or dress or swim trunks. No need to try to rush to shave your armpits anymore, change what you are wearing all together, or ask your son to shave your back!

With Xanadu Med Spa’s Cutera excel HR™ laser and its sapphire contact cooling technology, there may be some reddening of the skin after a treatment, but it keeps your skin cool while it works.

Laser hair removal at Xanadu Med Spa feels like a rubber band snap on your skin, but with our Cutera excel HR™ laser and its sapphire contact cooling technology, your skin stays cool and comfortable throughout your treatment.

There is no recovery time. You can resume regular activities immediately after treatment.

Xanadu Med Spa uses the Cutera excel HR™ Laser.  Cutera’s unique sapphire contact cooling technology keeps your skin cool, which dramatically lowers the risk of injury and pain.

You should stop any waxing or tweezing you do six weeks before coming in for your laser hair removal. You can still shave and should shave within 24 hours before your treatment. The hair needs to be in your skin, but not above the skin, for laser removal to work.
