Each of your hairs springs out of a hair follicle, where it’s rooted in your skin. Laser hair removal works by zapping your hair follicle with an intense pulse of laser energy that heats and destroys it, preventing future growth. The laser emitted by the Elite MPX machine specifically targets the pigment found in your body hair, bypassing your skin.
Your body hair also grows in cycles, and the follicles don’t all follow the same cycle. Laser hair removal treatments must destroy the follicle while it’s in a growth cycle, which means you will need to have a series of appointments spaced four weeks apart to ensure the laser treatments target your hair at the right time. After your initial course of laser hair removal, you may need annual touch up appointments to maintain your hair-free skin.
Depending on the size of the area being treated, your laser hair removal appointments can last between 30-90 minutes. You can apply topical numbing cream 30 minutes before your treatment to ensure your comfort.
During your treatment, you undress enough to reveal the body area being treated. Both you and your laser hair removal technician wear protective goggles. Your aesthetic specialist uses the handheld Elite MPX device to direct the laser toward your skin. In addition to the laser, the Elite MPX also delivers a cooling blast of air to regulate your skin temperature.
You may feel a stinging sensation as the laser zaps your hair follicles. You can apply an ice pack after your treatment to cool and comfort your skin. Any warmth or redness usually subsides within a few hours of your appointment.
