How to Navigate Through your Laser Hair Reduction  Treatments 

Written by: Melissa Miller


Women and men all around the world have hair on some part of the body.  Waxing and shaving can be expensive and time consuming, only to have it grow  back within a few days. My favorite option for those pesky follicles is laser hair  reduction at L Aesthetics and Longevity in Bee Cave, Texas. The staff here is very  knowledgeable and takes time to walk you through the process. If you have ever  wondered what the laser hair removal process is like, then read on. 

Laser hair removal, a non-invasive treatment, is nearly pain-free with virtually no  downtime after the procedure. The laser targets the pigment melanin in the root  of the hair follicle and therefore reduces the hair growth. A typical treatment plan usually includes six treatments spaced four to 8 weeks apart depending on the  

body area, as well as skin and hair type. 

First, you will be asked to fill out a Fitzpatrick skin type questionnaire. This is the  system that classifies skin type according to the amount of pigment your skin has  and your skin’s reaction to sun exposure. Arguably the most important factor in  your laser hair removal journey is your skin type. Unlike many other places, most  people are candidates for laser hair removal at our facility. L Aesthetics and  Longevity is committed to using the most cutting edge and state-of-the-art  technologies and techniques to get you your best result. 

You will be asked about your recent sun exposure or spray tanning. We ask that  you have had no active sun exposure or self tanner for two weeks, or if you are  very tan already, we prefer to wait until some of your tan has faded. Fall and  winter are the perfect times of the year for Laser Hair Reduction treatments! You  will also be asked to shave the area that we are treating the night before you  come in. Waxing or plucking are NOT acceptable during your treatments as we  want to have hair IN the follicle when you are treated for the best result. 

The day of your treatment at L Aesthetics and Longevity you will be brought back  to the laser room. You and the technician will wear glasses that protect your eyes  from the beam of the laser. It is important that you both wear these glasses  throughout the entire treatment. The area will be cleaned if you have any lotion  or deodorant on. We apply gel to the area to help with conduction of the laser

beam and then the treatment begins! You will feel a quick zap which has been  described like the snap of a rubber band. It is very quick and the mild discomfort  goes away almost immediately. After the session is over, we apply sunscreen on  the area if it is going to be exposed, like on the face or arms, and then you are  ready to go home! 

We have individual session pricing or if you are looking for a package, all of our packages at L Aesthetics and Longevity are competitively priced. Call us at  512-505-8645 to get started with your Laser Hair Reduction treatments.
