Thinking about laser hair removal? You’ve come to the right place! The Med Spa at Utah Cosmetic Surgery is the convenient, painless, and affordable choice for laser hair removal in the Salt Lake City area.
When laser hair removal was first introduced, it was very painful, expensive, and only patients with light skin could be treated. Things have changed! Thanks to advances in technology, it is more versatile, comfortable and affordable than ever!
The development of unwanted hair can occur for a number of reasons including:
Laser hair removal is growing more and more popular every year. This is because millions of people suffer from undesirable hair that needs to be constantly shaved or waxed. Some of the most common areas for laser hair removal include the underarms, legs, bikini area, upper lip, and back.
The technology used to remove unwanted hair is relatively simple. During the procedure, a laser is passed over the skin where the hair needs to be removed. When the pigment inside each hair follicle absorbs the laser energy, the follicles become permanently disabled.
This treatment is very desirable not only because it permanently rids the body of unwanted follicles, but because it is also only mildly uncomfortable and patients can return to normal activities immediately. Laser treatment is more effective than electrolysis because it has the capacity to remove more than one hair at a time.
Utah residents seek laser removal for several different reasons:
Imagine spending less time shaving and more time doing the things you love!

Laser Hair Removal Q & A
Your body has three different growth cycles:
What will I look/feel like after a treatment?
It depends on the area. Face and neck should be treated every 4-6 weeks. Underarms, bikini, abdomen, arms, back, chest and buttocks should be treated every 6-8 weeks. Legs should be treated every 10-12 weeks. Your results will be gradual and cumulative with each treatment. We all want instant results but laser hair removal is a process, one that is well worth it!
Do Not tweeze, wax, sugar, use depilatory creams or electrolysis as a method of hair reduction at least 4 weeks prior to your first treatment or throughout the course of your laser treatments; instead, you can shave the area.
Avoid swimming, hot tubs/Jacuzzis, and excessive exercise for 48 hours or until redness resolves.
