Title: What to Expect During The First Laser Hair Removal Session

What to Expect During The First Laser Hair
Removal Session
  • There are many people each year who make the
    decision to go through with a laser hair removal
    process. It is our job at Touch MedSpa to inform
    clients through the process and make them feel
    comfortable. For many women and men excessive
    hair can be embarrassing and unwanted. It is not
    uncommon for unwanted hair to affect other parts
    of the body like self-esteem and confidence. We
    believe in being the best you holistically and
    strive to minimize the negative effects of
    unwanted hair.

  • During the first visit to one of our highly
    qualified aestheticians you will experience
    one-on-one personalized care regarding your
    treatments. The first session will start with a
    consultation with one of our aestheticians. We
    want to make sure that every hair removal is
    successful, so it is important to learn more
    about your health history and family history. The
    aesthetician will go through a series of
    questions to better understand your needs.

  • After the consultation session, your Fitzpatrick
    skin score is discovered using a FDA patented
    device called the Skintel Melanin Reader. This
    handheld device measures how much melanin the
    skin contains. Depending on the results you will
    be given a Fitzpatrick score between 1-6. 1 is
    very light colored skin that burns easily to a 6,
    which is very dark colored skin that rarely
    burns. This score well help determine how strong
    the laser settings should be to have the optimal
    effects, and minimize damage to the skin.

  • The length of the session and number of laser
    pulses will depend on how much hair you want
    removed and how large an area. Smaller areas like
    the chin will take less time than larger areas
    like the legs. Normally treatments last from
    15-30 minutes. If you have not shaved the area,
    the area will first need to be shaved. We
    recommend you do this before your treatments. The
    session will begin with lighter laser impulses to
    help ease the patient into the treatments.

  • The entire area will be treated with the laser
    on a lower level, and then a second time with a
    bit stronger impulse. There may be frequent
    pauses in laser impulses to allow for cooling and

How should you expect to feel during the
  • The laser head is built with an automatic
    cooling system in each head. So you will feel a
    combination of a cool sensation followed by a
    warm sensation. The lighter the setting of the
    laser impulse the less painful the treatment will
    be. The higher the laser the more discomfort you
    may feel. The strength of the laser will depend
    on the coarseness and color of hair. Many people
    attribute the feeling to a light snap of a rubber
    band or a quick sting. It is important to
    understand there may be some discomfort in each
    treatment, but there are many ways to alleviate
    the pain.

  • You may take anti-inflammatory pain relievers
    before or after treatment, you can use ice after
    the treatments, as well as numbing or a topical
    steroid cream.
  • After each treatment make sure to follow the
    post treatment guidelines. You may feel a
    slight warm or sun burn feeling in the area that
    can be cooled with ice as needed. The area may be
    red for a few hours after the treatment but
    redness should subside within 2-24 hours hours.
