Laser Hair Removal in Pueblo, Colorado
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive technique that uses highly concentrated light to penetrate hair follicles. The heat of the laser damages the hair follicle to inhibit future hair growth. Laser hair removal is effective for most parts of the body.
Because laser hair removal only affects actively growing hair follicles, it may take several laser hair removal treatments to provide significant hair reduction. Additionally, while laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. Periodic maintenance treatments may be needed
What to expect from your laser hair removal procedure
At our clinic, a doctor performs all of our laser hair removal procedures.
A beam of highly concentrated light is used to target unwanted hair follicles. There is some mild discomfort that does not last long. Most people tolerate the treatment just great. We offer topical numbing cream for appropriate areas and we also utilize cold packs to decrease any negative sensations.
Because hair grows in cycles, it typically takes three to four laser hair removal treatments to provide significant hair reduction.
We offer our laser treatments in both multi-treatment package pricing as well as individual treatment pricing to make it affordable to everyone.
Laser hair removal expectations
Laser hair removal doesn’t guarantee complete removal of every single hair. The results are usually amazing and dissatisfaction is extremely rare. Some hair could be resistant to the laser treatment or new hairs can grow again after treatment — although the new hair growth might be finer and lighter in color. Most new growth is not a failure of treatment but rather growth from previously dormant follicles. Simple touch-ups or retreatment of areas are always available if recurrent hair is noted.
Possible laser hair removal side effects include:
- Mild swelling around the hair follicles (usually resolves over a few hours)
- Slight redness of the skin (usually resolves over a few hours)
- Temporary irritation resulting in crusting, in grown hairs, or other changes in skin texture (this is uncommon and if it occurs you should contact the clinic for instruction)
