Where Can I Have Laser Hair Removal?

  • Chest
  • Back 
  • Stomach
  • Upper lip
  • Toes

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

This treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses laser technology to remove unwanted hair. The laser device emits high-energy light that penetrates the skin and targets the hair follicles during their growth stage, destroying or disabling them and preventing further hair growth. Within a few days of the treatment, the portion of the hair shaft below the skin is pushed out, leaving the remaining, damaged hair follicle inactive and empty. Several treatments over a period of time are required to address each follicle during the growth stage of the hair.

Your Initial Consultation

For those considering laser hair removal in the Northbrook area, you can visit any of our five upscale Chicago locations for an initial in-person consultation. Additionally, we offer virtual consultations for added convenience. During this appointment, our team will assess your skin and hair in the specified treatment areas and discuss your treatment objectives. You will receive comprehensive details about the procedure, anticipated recovery, and recommended post-treatment care. Moreover, our team may perform a patch test on a small skin area to determine the best laser settings for your skin and hair type.

The Day of Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Shave the treatment area the day before laser hair removal, but do not pluck or wax the area. Laser hair removal will take 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and location of the treatment area. During the treatment, our team will use a laser device to target the hair follicles. The laser emits high-energy light to target the hair follicles, destroying them and preventing further hair growth. The procedure is relatively painless and usually well tolerated, with most patients reporting only mild discomfort. Many patients describe the sensation to be similar to having a rubber band snapped against the skin.

Recovery and Results after Laser Hair Removal

The recovery period after laser hair removal treatments is quite minimal. Most patients can return to their regular activities immediately afterward. Some redness and swelling may occur in the treatment area, but this is expected and typically subsides within a few hours to a day. Patients may also experience mild discomfort, such as heat or tightness in the treatment area. This is easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication. To ensure the best possible outcome, do not expose treated areas to the sun or hot baths and showers during the first few days. Do not pluck or wax the area for several weeks after your procedure. Following your treatment, you can expect a significant reduction in hair growth in the treated area. Patients typically notice a visible decrease in hair growth within the first few weeks after treatment.
