Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal at Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care uses laser technology to permanently get rid of unwanted body hair on your:

  • Bikini area
  • Face
  • Chin
  • Upper lip
  • Neck
  • Underarms
  • Shoulders
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Legs

Laser hair removal can get rid of unsightly body or facial hair in just about any area of your body without invasive treatments or downtime.

Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?

The Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care team lets you know if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal after reviewing your medical history and examining problem areas. 

Just about anybody can benefit from hair removal, with optimal results occurring in people with dark hair and light skin.

What should I expect during treatment?

Prior to laser hair removal treatment at Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care, stay out of the sun and shave the treatment area a day before the procedure. When you arrive for treatment, your provider can use a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area if you’d like.

They give you special goggles to wear to protect your eyes from the laser’s light and apply a hand-held device to your skin to emit laser energy to hair follicles. A cooling mechanism in the device or a special gel keeps your skin cool to enhance comfort and reduce side effects. 

The laser passes through your skin to hair follicles, damaging them to inhibit future growth. You might feel the sensation of warm pinpricks during the procedure, but it’s not painful. 

Laser hair removal might last just a few minutes for small areas or more than 60 minutes for larger treatment areas.

What happens after laser hair removal?

After laser hair removal, you might experience swelling or redness at the treatment area that usually subsides within a few hours. You can apply ice to the area as needed to reduce discomfort. 

Your Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care specialist might recommend a series of several treatments every few weeks or months to help you achieve the most desirable outcome. 

While undergoing laser hair removal treatments, protect your skin from the sun using a broad-spectrum sunscreen.

When will I notice results?

After laser hair removal treatment, you should notice hair shedding over a period of several days or weeks. Hair removal results can last several months or years, but you may require periodic maintenance treatments to help you achieve the best possible results.
