There are so many methods for hair removal: shaving, waxing, plucking, and depilatory creams are only a few. Each of these methods can be time-consuming, and results just don’t last. With laser hair removal, our patients in the Edmond and Oklahoma City areas can enjoy thorough and long-lasting hair removal after just a few sessions.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

At True Blue Aesthetics, we are proud to employ Lumenis LightShear® laser technology with vacuum assistance and/or a Chill-tip for hair removal. This diode laser precisely targets hair follicles without harming surrounding skin. The pigmented cells in the hair (melanin) absorb the laser light, which is converted to heat to destroy hair follicles in their active growth phase.

  • Long-lasting hair removal

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

When you meet with your provider for your personalized laser hair removal consultation, you will be given instructions on how to prepare for treatment so that you will enjoy optimal results and fewer side effects. This may include:

  • Avoiding sun exposure
  • Discontinuing use of tanning beds and sunless tanning products
  • Discontinuing use of hair removal methods like waxing, depilatory creams, and threading (shaving is ok)
  • Discontinuing use of exfoliants
  • Hair must be shaved at your appointment.

The Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Before laser hair removal, your nurse will assess the treatment area and determine which handpiece is appropriate. Then, the nurse will cleanse the area with alcohol and apply a clear gel to your skin if needed. Both handpieces are designed to ensure a comfortable treatment – The unique vacuum mechanism included in the LightShear handpiece is used for larger treatment areas for a quicker treatment. The Chill-tip handpiece is used for smaller areas that require more contour and shaping.

You will recline in a comfortable treatment chair as the LightShear handpiece is applied to the treatment area. You may encounter sensations of warmth or mild stinging, but treatment should not be painful.

Laser Hair Removal Recovery & Results

No downtime is necessary after laser hair removal with the LightShear system. The treated area may be slightly red, swollen, or irritated after treatment, but this will quickly subside.

Many of our patients report seeing a visible improvement in hair density after just a few laser hair removal treatments.

FAQs About Laser Hair Removal

Is laser hair removal painful?

No. One of the reasons we love the LightShear system for laser hair removal so much is that the vacuum technology helps to make treatment faster and more comfortable.

How much is laser hair removal?

The cost of laser hair removal is different for each patient, because it depends on the size of the treatment area, the number of treatments, and factors such as skin type and hair color. When you attend your personalized laser hair removal consultation, you will be given a detailed cost break-down for your treatment plan.

How many treatments will I need?

Hair growth happens in cycles, so you’ll need to come in for a few laser hair removal sessions to achieve optimal results. The number of treatments you’ll need depends on your hair type, the size of the treatment area, and your hair and skin color. Most of our patients require four to six treatments, spaced a few weeks apart.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal is the best way to get rid of facial and body hair for the long term. Still, new hair may grow following your treatment, so you may want to come in for a touch-up.
