Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a minimally invasive treatment that uses laser (light) energy to destroy unwanted hair and reduce its ability to grow back.

St. Pete Wellness & MedSpa uses the Venus Velocity™ system’s intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal function to effectively target unwanted hair.

How does laser hair removal work?

IPL technology uses a broad spectrum of pulsed light wavelengths that penetrate the pigment in the hair follicle, which then absorbs these pulses of light. This light then converts to heat energy, permanently damaging the hair follicle itself. Gradually, this process destroys the follicle and slows the regrowth of hair by up to 90%.

Which areas can laser hair removal treat?

Laser hair removal can help eliminate unwanted hair nearly anywhere on your body, but the treatment works best on the legs, arms, underarms, face, chest, and back.

Although IPL treatments work best on fair-to-medium skin tones, the Venus Velocity has a variety of different settings to effectively remove unwanted hair if you have a darker skin tone.

What happens during a laser hair removal treatment?

You shouldn’t apply any lotions, creams, or makeup before the treatment to prevent skin irritation. Fortunately, the Venus Velocity has a built-in cooling system that eases your discomfort during the treatment.

Laser hair removal with the Venus Velocity shouldn’t be painful, but it may feel like a small rubber band snapping against your skin.

After the treatment, your skin may feel similar to the rawness of a sunburn. To ease discomfort over the next day or two, you can apply a cool compress.

How long does laser hair removal take?

How long your first session takes depends on the area you want to be treated. Most treatments take about 60 minutes or less. You may notice results shortly after your first visit, however, most people need about six to eight sessions, spaced four to eight weeks apart, to see permanent hair reduction.

Hair grows in stages and it’s only during its growth cycle, when the hair is still in its follicle, that the removal process is most effective. The Venus Velocity™ Hair Removal applicator combines a high level of light energy (Intense Pulsed Light technology) with maximum heat distribution to multiple hair follicles at a time.

The energy penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin, targeting the pigment in the follicle beneath the skin’s surface, but without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. Destroying the underlying follicle gets rid of the existing hair but also inhibits future hair growth in that area.

The SmartPulse™ technology ensures safe and consistent heat distribution, while the real-time cooling system keeps skin protected.

Laser hair removal is an effective treatment to permanently reduce thick, dark, unwanted hair on your face and body. To schedule an appointment with St. Pete Wellness & MedSpa, call the office, or book online today.

What to Expect

Venus Velocity™ hair removal is safe for all skin types and tones. That said, while each session will noticeably reduce the appearance of hair, several sessions are necessary for the best, most long-lasting outcome—the number of sessions depends on the area being treated and the coarseness of the hair.

Most patients receive 7-10 treatments performed 6 weeks apart for the face and 4-8 weeks apart for the body. Now you too can enjoy being hair-free and carefree! ​With Venus Velocity™ hair removal treatments, you’ll always be ready for your close-up, or at least comfortable with getting close!

Hair-Free and Carefree – Results That Last Longer

​Unwelcome hair growth is a source of embarrassment for both men and women. For women, it’s usually the presence of facial hair between the brows or on the upper lip, but it also often includes other areas of the body, like the underarms, legs or bikini line. For men, it might be excess ear, shoulder or back hair, or hair that’s too thick on their arms or chest.

Whatever the case, unwanted body hair is a big problem for a lot of people. Shaving and depilatory creams might seem like an easy fix, but they just get rid of the hair at the surface. It’ll grow back very quickly; not to mention the added risk of cuts and ingrown hairs. While waxing may deliver longer-lasting results, it’s painful, time-consuming, and can cause an adverse reaction with your skin.

Are you ready to stop wasting your time with these futile, out-of-date approaches? Advanced hair removal treatments with the Venus Velocity are changing the game with innovative technology that’s proven to leave you with longer-lasting results than ever before.
