Laser Hair Removal

What happens during laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal with the revolutionary elos Plus system involves exposing your hair follicles to laser and bipolar radiofrequency energies to disrupt the growth process. During treatments, every single burst of energy heats up hair follicles and pigments deep down in the root that lies below the surface of your skin.

Even though this laser and radiofrequency energy never significantly heat up or burn the surface of your skin, they seriously interrupt the growth cycle of your hairs. Treated hairs essentially die on the spot, and over the following couple of weeks, they wiggle their way out and shed entirely.

Eventually, new hair grows back. With each new growth cycle though, hair comes back lighter, thinner, and finer, until it stops growing back entirely. To this day, laser hair removal is the most effective way to permanently reduce hair growth by up to 85-90%.

Which areas can be treated with laser hair removal?

The elos Plus laser platform is so advanced, Dr. French can design laser hair removal packages to minimize hair growth just about anywhere on your body. Some of the most popular laser hair removal treatment areas for both men and women include:

  • Back or chest
  • Full or partial legs or arms
  • Bikini or Brazilian
  • Lower abdomen
  • Underarms

At French Med Spa & ºCryothérapie, you can even get laser hair removal treatments to reduce hair growth on your upper lip, chin, and jawline.

How many laser hair removal sessions are needed?

Laser hair removal is most effective on hairs that are actively growing in the anagen phase. The issue is that each and every hair on your body is at a different point in the hair growth cycle. This is why multiple laser hair removal sessions are needed.

Dr. French finds that most men and women who undergo laser hair removal treatments achieve dramatically smoother, silkier, nearly hair-free skin in as little as four to eight monthly sessions with the elos Plus system. You might need additional visits or touch-up sessions for stubborn or coarse hair.
