What to expect during laser hair removal
Your laser hair removal procedure will be done in the comfort of Dr. Kotis’s Chicago office. Prior to beginning the treatment, you will be given special glasses to protect your eyes from the light of the laser. The technician will then numb the treatment area and tailor the laser to your skin.
From there, the laser energy will be administered directly into your unwanted hair follicles. The technology that we use in our office is focused on optimizing results and comfort levels. As such, the procedure is not painful and typically feels like the snap of a rubber band on your skin.
You will be free to return to work and your normal daily routine immediately after laser hair removal. Some swelling and redness is to be expected in the treatment area, though these effects should subside within 24 hours. In the meantime, applying ice and anti-inflammatory lotions can minimize your discomfort.
In general, our patients achieve the hair reduction they need in about seven sessions, each of which are scheduled one month apart. However, if your hair is particularly dense you may require additional treatments. After your initial round of sessions, you will likely require yearly touch-ups to maintain your results.
