Top Laser Hair Removal Questions Asked at Naples Medical Spa

While most people control their unwanted facial and body hair by shaving, tweezing, waxing or bleaching, Tru Glō Medspa offers its southwest Florida-area clients a more effective solution. That is, laser hair removal, which has emerged as one of the most long-lasting solutions for removing unwanted hair.

As a high-tech solution, the idea of removing unwanted hair with laser energy naturally raises many questions among our cliental. In particular, they tend to ask “is it painful and is it a “permanent” solution?”

For the first question we can respond that the treatment is relatively pain-free. Our laser hair removal applicator has a cooling mechanism. This is to ensure the comfort of even the most sensitive skin. The answer to the second question is a bit more complex. We have responded to this question below and have provided answers to the other top laser hair removal questions we receive from clients at our Naples medical spa.

Permanence of Laser Hair Removal is Conditional

Our affirmative answer to the question of permanence is conditional. The effectiveness of the treatment is dependent upon the laser energy’s ability to destroy every hair follicle in a targeted area. The laser energy effectively destroys follicles during hair’s anagen growth phase, but individual hairs in a given area can be in different stages of their respective growth cycles. Thus, patients may need from two to eight treatment sessions to achieve the best removal results.

Once hair follicles have been destroyed, they generally do not regenerate in most parts of the body. Women’s faces represent a distinct exception as hormonal activity can spur regeneration of facial hair follicles. On other parts of the body, patients may experience new hair growth months or years later due to surviving hair follicles. However, such new hair growth tends to be sparse. The new hairs thinner and lighter colored than previous hair growth. Many patients opt for maintenance laser hair removal sessions to address such new regrowth. In short, even if laser hair removal does not prove permanent for all patients, it is definitely a more effective and long-lasting solution than traditional hair removal methods.

How Long Does a Laser Hair Removal Session Take and How Many Will I Need?

The duration of a laser hair removal treatment session depends on the size of the treatment area and on how much hair is in the area. A small treatment area, such as above the lips, typically takes less than 10 minutes. Larger areas, such as legs and the back, might take up to an hour.

The hirsuteness (hairiness) of a given area can generally indicate how many treatment sessions might be needed. Hair thickness, color and treatment area location can also influence how many sessions might be needed. Given the cyclic nature of hair growth, a hirsute area will require more sessions to maximize the number of hair follicles destroyed during the key anagen growth phase. In general, most people experience a 10% to 25% reduction of hair in the first session of a treated area. There are even more noticeable results with each successive session.

Those needing multiple treatment sessions generally schedule them every four to six weeks. Your med spa professional will coordinate a schedule for your treatment based on treatment area, aesthetic goals, and other factors.

Is There Any Downtime and Do I Have to Worry About Side Effects?

Laser hair removal does not require any downtime. The only side effects are redness and swelling immediately after the treatment. Many describe this as being similar to having a mild sunburn. This usually subsides within a day and does not prevent people from conducting their usual everyday activities.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?

The cost of laser hair treatment depends upon numerous variables, including treatment area location, number of sessions needed, and specific hair features. Laser hair treatment costs are offset by the time, money, and pain you would otherwise incur with other treatment options. In fact, a study in Harper’s Bazaar concluded that laser hair removal is a third less expensive on average than a lifetime of hair removal through waxing.

Can’t Wait to Go Back

First time @ Tru Glo and had a wonderful experience. I had a hydra facial with Maddie – she was super knowledgeable and gave me lots of tips and tricks to glowing skin. Spa is gorgeous – clean and smells amazing! Everyone I encountered couldn’t have been nicer. Can’t wait to go back for another treatment!

Love Everything About this Place

I just love everything about this place! It is a little pricey but it’s really worth it if you want to see real results. Maddie knows my skin better than I do and knows every procedure & product inside and out. I’d highly recommend it to anyone that is looking to take their beauty regimen to the next level.

Definitely 5 star!

Tru Glo Medspa is top notch. The office is beautiful with calm aura. Gretchen is always so helpful and knowledgeable. Stacey Blake, who has performed multiple treatments on my face from filler, Botox, Dysport, BBL and laser peels, is just amazing. She is so gentle handed and always making sure you are okay during procedures. She has even went the extra mile to assist me addressing a skin issue which I didn’t even mentioned because I didn’t think there was much I could do about it. With her help I have cleared up an issue which was really affecting my daily life and I am so thankful for her help. After having had Tru Glo’s amazing staff I would never even consider going anywhere else ever for my cosmetic needs. Definitely 5 star!

Erica M

Highly Recommend

Highly recommend TruGlo MedSpa for all laser aesthetics. Stacy Blake, over 30yrs of experience and beautiful herself, transformed my face with just one HALO treatment($1600) as seen in my before and after pictures below. Dr Gardner(best plastic surgeon in all of South Florida) owns TruGlo MedSpa.

I had consultations with all of the top doctors in South Florida; Naples, Coral Gables, Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Jupiter. I decided to go with Dr Gardner & TruGlo MedSpa. Afterwards I went back to the same top plastic surgeons who complimented Gardner’s work.
