Laser Hair Removal Q & A

Why choose laser hair removal?

After years of traditional hair removal efforts like shaving, waxing, and plucking, many men and women are ready to try something new. Laser hair removal offers a more lasting solution and one that makes good financial sense when compared to the cost of other methods. High-quality razors and replacement blades aren’t cheap, the cost of wax strips, depilatory creams, and salon visits really add up over time. When viewed from a long-term perspective, an investment in laser hair removal really pays off.

How does laser hair removal work?

Shoreline Medical Spa uses the elōs™ treatment platform. This revolutionary system combines the power of laser or light energy with that of radiofrequency energy, yielding more effective hair removal suitable for all skin tones.

The laser hair removal process sends pulses of concentrated light to each hair follicle, heating it to a high temperature. Next, radiofrequency current is sent to the same area, where the current is drawn to the pre-heated tissue. That one-two punch creates maximum thermal injury to your hair follicles, damaging them to the point where new hair growth is not possible.

The system incorporates a cooling applicator tip to keep the surface of your skin at a comfortable temperature and protect it from the full effect of the radiofrequency current as it moves toward the targeted follicles.

Some of the most common areas to receive laser hair removal include: 

  • Lip/Chin/Facial
  • Legs
  • Bikini, Brazilian bikini
  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Glutes


What happens during laser hair removal sessions?

Your appointment begins with a comprehensive skin assessment to determine if you have any special needs. A layer of water-based radiofrequency conductive medium helps direct the current from the elōs system to the deeper layers of your skin.

Next, your practitioner sweeps the hand-held treatment wand over your skin, pulsing light and radiofrequency energy into your hair follicles. You might feel a slight pinching sensation during sessions, but many men and women report no discomfort at all.

How many hair removal treatments will I need?

Your treatment plan depends on several factors. In general, you can expect:

  • 6-8 sessions spaced 8-12 weeks apart for arms, legs, and back, then 1-2 maintenance sessions each year
  • 4-6 sessions for facial hair, then 4 maintenance sessions each year
  • 6 sessions spaced 4-8 weeks apart for bikini and underarms, then 1-2 maintenance sessions each year

These are only guidelines, as everyone’s body responds to laser hair removal differently. To get started toward smooth, sleek, hair-free skin, book an appointment at Shoreline Medical Spa today.
