Laser Hair Removal in Vancouver WA
Laser hair removal has become one of the most sought after procedures for removing unwanted hair in the United States. It ranks second in the frequency of procedure carried out, right after wrinkle-relaxing injections. This method of permanent hair reduction utilizes highly concentrated laser beams to penetrate into selected hair follicles in order to completely eliminate the hair within that follicle.
A number of lasers have been developed over the past few years and this procedure was previously intended to be used to remove darker hair on light skin. However, latest developments in laser treatment have made the technology suitable for removing pigmented hair on all skin types. Various types of laser wavelengths are used to perform the procedure, including YAG and alexandrite.
Why choose Laser Treatment for removing hair?
Laser treatment is an effective way for removing unwanted hair from a number of places, including the armpits, legs, facial hair as well as bikini hair removal, regardless of whether the excessive growth of hair is a result of a medical condition or not. The majority of people who want to have the procedure performed on them will have to undergo a number of sessions every 4-6 weeks.
Depending on each individual case, the results typically last for years to come with occasional maintenance treatments.
The best way to find out how many sessions you will need is to consult with our experienced estheticians.

When will the Laser Hair Removal results be visible?
Some patients start to see results right after their very first treatment. However you may notice the difference after your third session is complete. The laser hair removal treatment starts with the laser let on a low setting, and this is gradually increased as we proceed through the number of sessions. This may cause the results to appear slowly, but it is undoubtedly the most effective way to carry out the procedure to ensure long lasting results.
How long is the wait between treatments?
The growth of hair has a three stage cycle: growing, resting and transitional. This is why not all hairs can be treated at the same time. In order to achieve maximum results just like you’ve always wanted, we recommend a gap of 4 to 8 weeks between the laser treatment sessions. The exact time will be made clear when you go to VIP MEDISPA for consultation.
Does the Laser Hair Removal procedure hurt?
The laser does result in slight discomfort during the procedure. However, most of our patients tell us that the discomfort was much less than they had expected. Laser hair removal provides a comfortable experience as compared to waxing or plucking.
