Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal at Butterfly MedSpa and Wellness uses cutting-edge laser technology and targeted energy to heat and destroy unwanted hair follicles, causing treated hair to fall out over time. Laser hair removal is often a permanent hair-elimination procedure that’s safe, FDA-approved, and extremely effective. 


Which treatment areas does laser hair removal address?

Butterfly MedSpa and Wellness’s laser hair removal treatments help eliminate undesirable hair on your:

  • Neck
  • Face
  • Upper lip
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Buttocks
  • Bikini area
  • Legs

Your specialist can remove hair from nearly anywhere and can treat multiple areas during the same laser hair removal treatment session.


How should I prepare for laser hair removal?

To prepare for laser hair removal at Butterfly MedSpa and Wellness, follow your provider’s instructions. They often ask you to avoid shaving until the day before your scheduled appointment, protect your skin from the sun, and steer clear of tanning beds.


What happens during laser hair removal?

During laser hair removal sessions, you rest on a comfortable chair or table while your Butterfly MedSpa and Wellness provider cleans the treatment area. They may also numb it to maximize comfort and avoid pain.

During treatment, wear goggles to protect your eyes from the laser. Your specialist applies a handheld device to your skin to emit laser energy into targeted follicles without damaging the surrounding tissues. You might feel a rubber band-snapping sensation during treatment, which often lasts 30-60 minutes.


What can I expect after laser hair removal?

Treated tissues are often tender, swollen, and red for a short time after laser hair removal treatments. You may experience the feeling of a mild sunburn. Avoid sun exposure, apply a cool compress to your skin if needed, and attend repeat laser hair removal sessions as directed until you achieve the desired results.

Over time, treated hair sheds as it enters new phases of the hair growth cycle. You might need periodic maintenance treatments to ensure the best outcome.
