Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does the laser remove my unwanted hair?

The laser leaves your skin undisturbed to move into the hair follicles. The melanin, the pigment in the follicles, absorbs the light and then breaks up into many small particles that you dispose of during normal waste-removal processes. The laser damages your follicles to curtail regrowth, as well. 

Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

The state-of-the-art laser at MiKO Med Spa can treat nearly anyone, but there are a couple of exceptions. Lasers need melanin as a target, so anyone who lacks melanin in their hair follicles (white or gray hair) isn’t a candidate. Sometimes, patients who aren’t a good candidate for laser hair removal might find that another option like intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal is a good alternative.

What parts of the body are best for laser hair removal?

If you have unwanted hair, the MiKO Med Spa laser can probably remove it! The most common areas for removal include:

  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bikini area
  • Upper lip
  • Lower arms

The only place that laser hair removal isn’t possible is delicate areas close to your eyes, like your brows.

What is the laser hair removal process?

MiKO Med Spa Medical Director Dr. Michael K. Obeng personally designed the laser hair removal protocol. Dr. Michael K. Obeng chose the spa’s aesthetic specialists carefully based on their specific background and training, so you always get treatment from a highly trained specialist.

First, you don protective eye goggles. Your MiKO Med Spa aesthetic provider typically applies a numbing agent. Then, they move the handheld laser over your unwanted hair field. 

You may experience some twinges as the laser works, but most men and women find laser hair removal comfortable. For small areas, like your upper lip, the treatment can take as little as five minutes. Larger areas, like your legs or chest, might take an hour or so. 

You might have some mild redness and swelling after laser hair removal treatment, but ice packs are very effective for fast relief. There's no downtime after laser hair removal sessions.

How long will it take to clear all my unwanted hair?

It depends on a few factors, including the amount of hair you’ve got and the size of the treatment area. Laser hair removal requires multiple treatment sessions because hair growth happens in cycles. 

Lasers only treat the hair in the active growth phase. At each appointment, usually around every six weeks, your MiKO Med Spa care provider targets the active growth follicles until they have treated all your unwanted hair.
