What is it?
Laser hair removal eliminates unwanted hair. The laser light destroys the hairs at the follicles to provide long-lasting results. The follicles that are destroyed cannot grow back. Hair grows in stages and cycles so multiple treatments spaced several weeks apart are ideal for the most optimal results. Maintenance treatments may be required as new follicles can occur with major hormone shifts. Ultimately, after laser hair removal, you enjoy smooth, hair-free skin without the need to shave, wax, or pluck as often — or even at all.
Does it Hurt?
The discomfort from laser hair removal may feel hot and like the snap of a rubber band against your skin. Cold air is utilized during the procedure to ease the discomfort. Blue Mussel Aesthetics also offers topical numbing and Nitronox (laughing gas) as pain relief options for an additional charge.
What is the Downtime?
There typically no downtime associated with laser hair removal. Certain activities need to be avoided during treatments such as tanning and sunbathing.
