What is Laser Hair Removal?
ReWind Medical Solutions uses the safest, most cutting-edge laser technology in the wellness industry to target and destroy hair follicles in your skin wherever you’re experiencing unwanted growth. The laser passes through your skin, heating up and destroying hair follicles with minimal damage to surrounding tissue.
Laser hair removal is a popular choice for people who want a convenient method of permanent hair removal that’s virtually painless and minimally invasive. Our board-certified professionals will determine if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal based on factors such as skin color, thickness, medical history, and more, creating a personalized treatment plan that suits your needs, goals, and skin type.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
You’ll spend less time and money shaving, waxing or tweezing. You’ll no longer have to deal with bumps on your skin from ingrown hairs, painful tweezing sessions that leave your skin sore for days, or any unsightly razor burn and redness. Laser hair removal treatments are an efficient way to remove unwanted hair for good.
No matter how fast your hair grows back after you shave it off, it won’t be a problem once you get laser treatments!
What Should I Expect from a Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
During a laser hair removal session, a device emits light that is directed at small portions of your skin. One laser is typically used in each area where you want to treat hair. For example, if you have facial hair you may choose to use two different types of lasers — one for light skin, one for dark skin — that work in tandem with each other to disable most or all of your follicles.
Typical sessions last between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on how many hairs you’re treating. You may feel a little bit of heat from your treatment area during a session, but most people find that to be more soothing than uncomfortable.
Treating hair with laser light can take several sessions — sometimes as many as 10 or 12 — in order to disable all of your follicles. This is because some will grow back faster than others, meaning you have to repeat treatments at regular intervals until they stop growing back altogether.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
Safety is at the forefront of all laser hair removal treatments. Before undergoing a session, you’ll be consulted about your medical history. Any past or current issues can have an impact on treatment safety, so it’s important to disclose anything that could cause complications during a session. Your clinician will also conduct a skin analysis to determine whether you’re suitable for laser hair removal.
Clinical studies have shown there are few, if any, risks associated with undergoing a session. To ensure continued safety and efficacy for you, certain rules are also in place about what you should do in between sessions. For example, after each session you’ll be asked to refrain from swimming or showering for 24 hours. Depending on your skin type and preferred treatment area(s), these requirements may vary slightly.

Laser Hair Removal for Body Areas
Since different body areas contain varying amounts of hair, laser hair removal for larger body areas can take up to one hour to complete. In most cases, an individual will need multiple treatments before they see their desired results. However, new technology is helping increase efficiency across all body areas.
It’s important to note that laser hair removal on certain parts of your body can be more painful than others, but at ReWind Medical Solutions we use a variety of techniques and products that help minimize discomfort. Our staff is well-trained in administering painless treatments, so you’ll be able to focus on getting rid of unwanted hair without feeling any pain or discomfort!
After Your Treatment
Make sure to avoid excessive sweating or friction on treated areas for at least 24 hours after your treatment. If possible, you should wear loose clothing that doesn’t rub against treated skin for a few days following treatment. You may also want to apply a soothing lotion like aloe vera or coconut oil (or even cold cream) to soothe and moisturize your skin.
Keep in mind that laser hair removal isn’t permanent, but it is effective for many people and lasts longer than shaving! The best way to maximize results is by returning for additional treatments every four weeks until all hair follicles are removed from treated areas.
