About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic treatments in the United States. It is a convenient option for the long-term reduction of hair follicles on the body and face. This procedure frequently leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and produces long-lasting results compared to other methods. Dr. MaryAnn Millar M.D. at Level Up Med Spa in Andover, MA offers safe and fast laser hair removal treatments for women and men in frequently needed areas, including the arms, legs, back, face, chest, armpits, and intimate areas.
Laser Hair Removal Reviews
"My husband and I both had amazing experiences with Chelsea. She answered all of our questions thoroughly and professionally. Before my procedure, Chelsea explained everything she was doing clearly and calmly. When I first met Chelsea I asked her about every procedure and what the risks/benefits were of each. She very patiently explained each treatment and it’s purpose. Chelsea was also very honest and kind when she recommended certain services over others. Top notch med spa. I am a nurse and I couldn’t be happier with the quality of service and acumen of the professionals that work there."- N.S. / Google / Sep 30, 2019
Reducing hair follicle growth with a laser is a gentle process that is suitable for most patients. In your consultation, we will talk about your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other hair removal methods (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in good overall health
At your laser hair removal appointment, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and moisturizers. During laser hair removal, a technician will stretch out the skin to provide a direct path between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The laser's energy will target and disable the hair follicle, which stops it from growing back. Usually, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to reach the active growth phase so they can be treated. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Level Up Med Spa is able to target the hair follicle alone to preserve the skin in the area being treated.
What to Expect
While the treatment is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a light sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after your appointment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to treat any discomfort.
