What is Laser Hair Removal?

Hair removal with the Forever Bare BBL™ laser is one of the most popular treatments in the United States. Laser hair removal is an effective procedure for the long-term extraction of unwanted hair on the face and body. Compared to other hair removal options, this treatment leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and provides long-lasting results. At JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL, we perform laser hair removal on common areas, such as the legs, back, arms, face, armpits, and bikini area.

What Are The Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal?

A personalized laser hair removal treatment at JEM Medspa lets you ditch the razors and painful waxing for sleeker skin with benefits like:

  • Less painful than plucking or waxing
  • Effective for multiple body areas
  • Leaves skin smoother and softer
  • Can achieve long-lasting to permanent results
  • Helps prevent ingrown hairs
  • You don't have to let hair grow out between treatments
  • Saves time and money overall

Ideal Candidates

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective procedure that works well for many men and women. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic needs, concerns, and goals so we can determine if this treatment works best for you. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:

  • Have unwanted facial or body hair
  • Want to stop using other hair removal methods (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
  • Have darker hair with lighter skin
  • Maintain good health

Our Laser Hair Removal Technique

We will perform your procedure in a private and spacious treatment room. To start with, the treatment area is cleaned to remove any dirt, oil, and creams. During laser hair removal, a technician stretches out the skin to create a clear path between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The laser focuses on and kills the follicle, which prevents it from growing back.

Over a period of 3 – 4 weeks, you will need about 3 – 5 treatments to attain your best results. We will stagger your treatments to give the affected areas a chance to heal. Also, this allows the dormant follicles to cycle into the active growth phase so the laser effectively targets the remaining hair. Using state-of-the-art technology, we can target the hair follicle alone, preserving the skin near the treatment area.

What to Expect

Although this procedure is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a slight sunburn because of the laser. When you leave our office, you can resume all normal activities. However, for a day, you should avoid exercise or excess sun exposure. This will help the treated skin recover. After you get home, we suggest using soothing creams or cold packs to manage any discomfort. About 1 – 2 weeks after your appointment, you should start to notice less hair, but you will also experience shedding. During the shedding phase, it tends to look like blackheads or stubble on the treatment areas. We will provide detailed post-treatment instructions and information after your procedure. 

Laser hair removal FAQs

Why should I get laser hair removal?

Unwanted hair on the legs, arms, or bikini area can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Laser hair removal is perfect for individuals who are tired of removing hair through constant shaving and waxing. JEM Medspa can review the benefits of this cosmetic procedure and help you achieve your desired results.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Our clinic is proud to use the most advanced laser technology to minimize any discomfort associated with laser hair removal. During the procedure, you may experience a temporary stinging sensation, but it's not any more painful than traditional waxing. After your treatment, you'll be given instructions on how to take care of your skin.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

While laser hair removal produces lasting results, it can only be considered semi-permanent. This is because some follicles may continue growth after treatment ends. Regardless, our patients in Elmhurst and Orland Park find that any remaining hair is much easier to remove. Feel free to return to our clinic as often as needed for future sessions.
