Your Laser Hair Removal Experience at Palm City Med Spa
What is it like to have laser hair removal done at Palm City Med Spa?
When you arrive at our medical spa for laser hair removal you will be greeted by our friendly staff and helped to complete any necessary paperwork in our luxurious and welcoming space.
You will then meet your medical professional and be escorted into one of our beautiful, clean and comfortable treatment rooms. Your medical professional will review your medical history to ensure your safety and to rule out any potential risks or contraindications to treatment.
Before the treatment begins, you may be asked to remove any clothing or jewelry that could potentially interfere with the laser device. You will also be provided protective eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser light.
Your medical professional will clean the treatment area and may apply a cooling gel or cream to help protect the skin and reduce the likelihood of any discomfort during the treatment.
The laser device will then be used to emit a beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles. The laser hair removal treatment on smaller areas such as the underarms is typically relatively quick. In general the procedure can take anywhere from just a few minutes to an hour depending on the size of the treatment area.
You may feel a sensation of warmth or a snapping or stinging sensation on the skin during the treatment. Some people describe the sensation as similar to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against the skin.
After the treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling in the treatment area, which typically resolve within a few hours.. You will be provided with clear aftercare directions which may include avoiding sun exposure, using a moisturizer, and avoiding certain skin care products, so you know what to expect and how to take care of the area. of course, you can call us directly with any question or concern at any time.
