Patients with dark hair and light skin often respond to laser hair removal the best. Darker skin tones may require a long pulse YAG laser (which is less likely to alter skin color) to see optimal results. The Cutera XLHR laser offers the safest, most effective high-volume hair reduction on all skin types, and the cooling sapphire ensures your treatment is comfortable and quick. A consultation with our team is needed to ultimately determine if laser hair removal is a good match for you.
During laser hair removal, a topical anesthetic can be applied to minimize any discomfort. The laser handpiece is then passed over the skin, targeting and damaging hair follicles once the laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in each hair. Treatment can last anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
The Envee Aesthetics team uses Cutera XLHR for laser hair removal. This is among the safest and most effective hair removal technology available, and works for all skin types and tones. Read more about Cutera here.
Following treatment, you should avoid the sun as much as possible and be sure to use sunscreen for at least a couple of weeks. Also, you should avoid waxing or plucking the treatment area. Your treated skin may appear red or irritated, though this is temporary. Cold compresses can be used to help alleviate redness and discomfort.
Most patients need a series of treatments, usually 6 within 4-8 week intervals, for optimal results.
One of the most important ways you can prepare for your treatment is to avoid sun exposure prior to the procedure. Exposure to the sun makes your skin much more sensitive to the light energy used in the hair removal process.

Laser hair removal is permanent. You should not have to repeat the treatment after all of your sessions have been completed.
Laser hair removal will permanently remove between 80-90% of the hair on average. It is usually most effective for those with fairer skin tones with darker hair.
The number of sessions required for laser hair removal varies on a case-by-case basis. Most patients will require between 4-6 sessions.
