With laser hair removal in Oklahoma City, patients can enjoy a 70-90 percent reduction in stubborn hairs in around just 6 sessions. The treatment is appropriate for all skin types. Our team at Highwater Aesthetics will customize our approach to help achieve your ideal results.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Many Oklahoma City patients are frustrated by excessive body or facial hair and are tired of the painful, tedious methods of removing it, such as shaving and waxing. Laser hair removal is an innovative method of smoothing the skin and achieving the desired clean-shaven look. At Highwater Aesthetics, our precision-based laser hair removal techniques can be used in virtually every area where hair grows.

We use a state-of-the-art device that accomplishes your goals with minimal downtime. The laser delivers potent energy to the skin, which is absorbed by the skin pigment, destroying the hair follicles. With a series of laser hair removal sessions, the hair will no longer grow back.

After laser hair removal, you must avoid the following for approximately two weeks:

Redness and bumps are common but can be treated with a cold compress. You can also use aloe vera or one of our recommended moisturizers immediately after your session to address these issues.

Some other examples of what to expect from laser hair removal recovery include the following:

  • You may wash the treated area gently with mild soap
  • The skin should be patted dry & not rubbed during the first 48 hours
  • Avoid makeup & lotion, moisturizer, and deodorant for the first 24 hours
  • Dead hairs shed between five and 30 days after your treatment
  • Because the hair grows in cycles, you may need up to eight sessions to achieve optimal results

What happens during laser hair removal?

Before laser hair removal, your practitioner will cleanse the area to be treated. Some patients also receive a numbing gel, such as when we treat a small space or the skin is sensitive, which takes up to sixty minutes to work. Everyone in the treatment room must wear protective eyewear during the procedure. The skin is pulled taut and treated with a laser to vaporize the follicle. Many patients say the laser pulses resemble warm pinpricks or a rubber band snapped against the skin.

How long does each laser hair removal session last?

Treatment time depends on the size and number of treatment sites addressed during each session. While treating the upper lip takes minutes, more extensive areas, such as the back or legs, last more than one hour.

When will I see the results of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal results are immediate, although these results vary from patient to patient. Some examples of factors that affect your results include: the color and thickness of your hair, the area treate, the type of laser use, skin tone and texture. After the first treatment, you can expect a 10% to 25% reduction in hair.

How long does laser hair removal last?

Most laser hair removal patients remain hair-free for several months or even years. Additionally, when some of the hair regrows, it will likely be less noticeable.

Is laser hair removal safe?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved laser hair removal as a safe method for hair removal in 1997. However, it is only safe when a licensed technician performs procedures like the highly-trained staff at Highwater Aesthetics.

How old do you have to be to get laser hair removal?

While there is no specific age minimum for laser hair removal, fourteen is generally the earliest age when people should begin. It is essential to wait until you’ve gone through puberty to begin laser hair removal treatments, so female candidates should wait until they’ve already started their menstrual cycle.

Can you get laser hair removal if you’re pregnant?

No evidence suggests that laser hair removal is unsafe when pregnant, but it is best to play it safe and avoid it. There are no long-term studies analyzing the effect of the laser on a pregnancy. To be safe, wait until you’ve given birth to begin laser hair removal.
