Laser Hair Removal Q&A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal uses the latest innovations in technology and techniques to get rid of unwanted facial or body hair — without any pain or downtime. With laser hair removal treatments, they provide a permanent solution to waxing, shaving, or plucking.

El Paso Women’s Clinic uses Alma Soprano ICE® for their hair removal treatments.  

Which areas can laser hair removal treat?

Laser hair removal at El Paso Women’s Clinic gets rid of unwanted hair on your:

  • Face
  • Upper lip
  • Neck
  • Underarms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Bikini area
  • Thighs

To determine if you’re a candidate for laser hair removal at El Paso Women’s Clinic, the team reviews your medical history, examines areas of your face or body containing unwanted hair, and customizes a treatment plan. Laser hair removal is highly effective for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

How should I prepare for laser hair removal?

To get ready for laser hair removal at El Paso Women’s Clinic, follow the team’s instructions carefully. Avoid taking certain medications or using self-tanning lotions prior to your scheduled appointment. 

Don’t wax, pluck, or have other hair removal procedures for several weeks before laser hair removal at El Paso Women’s Clinic. However, the team might ask you to shave the treatment area the day before your session.

What should I expect during laser hair removal?

During laser hair removal, you rest in a comfortable, reclining chair. The team then uses a handheld device to apply laser energy to targeted areas of your skin to heat and destroy hair follicles. Your treatment might last just a few minutes to more than an hour, depending on your treatment goals. 

What happens after laser hair removal?

After laser hair removal sessions, there’s no need for downtime. You can resume normal activities immediately afterward but may have some redness, swelling, and tenderness at the treatment site. 

Over time, treated hair begins to shed, and you can expect smoother skin and less facial or body hair. You might need multiple treatment sessions to achieve the best possible results.
