Are you ready to permanently reduce unwanted body hair? Do you get tired of constantly having to wax or shave off unwanted body hair? MedSpa 22 offer laser hair removal treatments to permanently reduce unwanted hair growth.
Laser hair removal works by permanently disabling hair follicles. Concentrated pulses of laser energy are directed at the treatment area. The light and heat energy emitted by the laser is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle, which destroys the follicle at its root. At MedSpa 22, we use Cynosure laser technology for our hair removal treatments. This system features two wavelengths, allowing our technicians to choose the appropriate wavelength for your treatment. Our technicians can also switch between the two wavelengths during a treatment session to best target the hair follicles and ensure you achieve optimal results.

How many treatment sessions will I need?
The number of treatment sessions required to achieve optimal results can vary from patient to patient depending on a number of factors, including hair thickness, the area being treated, the hair growth cycle, and the patient’s aesthetic goals. Most treatment areas require between five and ten treatment sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. Multiple treatments are necessary because laser hair removal targets the hairs in the active growth phase and each hair follicle in a treatment area does not grow at the same rate.
During your initial consultation, our expert staff will review the condition of the hair in the treatment area and your desired results and recommend a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
When will I see results?
Most patients experience a noticeable reduction of hair in the treated area after the first treatment session. The results will become more noticeable with each successive treatment session.
Am I a candidate?
Laser hair removal is effective on patients of all skin types and skin tones. Laser hair removal is not effective on patients with blonde, white, red, or gray hair as these hair colors lack the melanin that attracts the laser energy. Light-based and laser-based systems are unable ineffective on very fine hair, like peach fuzz.
Are there any side effects?
Immediately following a treatment session the skin in the treated area may look and feel like it has a mild sunburn, this can last for a day or two. Some patients may experience other temporary side effects including mild itching, swelling, redness, tingling, or numbness in the treated area. These side effects are temporary and should resolve on their own.
