Laser Hair Removal

Conveniently located to serve St. Louis, Des Peres, and surrounding areas

If you have embarrassing thick hair growth in areas it shouldn’t be in, or if you’re tired of keeping up with shaving your legs or waxing your upper lip, hair removal treatments may be your answer. Laser hair removal is a scientific FDA-approved method to remove unwanted hair.

During treatment, specific hair follicles are targeted using concentrated light technology. The follicles absorb the laser energy and are damaged, making them unable to grow new hairs in the future. Because of this, laser hair removal often leads to permanent hair removal results.

What Areas Can Laser Hair Removal Treat?

Although laser hair removal treatment works on nearly any part of the body, there are particular areas that are proven to show the most beneficial and lasting results. The most common regions of treatment are the bikini area, underarms, back, legs, chest, upper lip, and various other areas of the face.

The Hair Growth Cycle

Before undergoing laser hair removal, it’s important to understand how the process works in order to receive the most effective results.

Hair growth on the body occurs in three phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen. Every strand of hair on the human body is going through different growth cycles at any given time. Once a hair has gone through all three phases, new hair will grow, starting a new growth cycle.

Multiple treatments are needed to ensure that the aesthetic professional who is administering treatment can target hairs in their anagen (growth) phase.

What to Expect

Prior to receiving laser hair removal, you will go over a treatment plan with your aesthetic professional. During this consultation, you can discuss possible appointment lengths, your expected number of treatment cycles, and any additional questions or concerns you have.

Laser hair removal is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment. Depending on the area of treatment, your appointment may last as little as 15 minutes.

There is typically no downtime or recovery time needed after laser hair removal. Although most experience little to no pain during treatment, some report feeling slight discomfort due to the laser administration. There are little to no side effects when receiving laser removal treatment. Possible side effects include mild swelling, redness, itching, rash, or temporary changes in skin coloration.

 

I love Avani Derm Spa ★★★★★

Everything I have done at Avani Derm Spa is amazing. This specific visit was for laser hair removal on my legs. It was my first treatment and it was fast, easy and pain free. Very different than the old laser treatments I had years ago for underarm and bikini. I enjoy talking with everyone that works at Avani, they always make me feel so comfortable. And Emily was no acception. The 30 or so minute treatment flew by and the conversation was a nice way to pass the time.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

The number of sessions needed will vary on the area of treatment. For the best results, you’ll need to receive multiple treatments in one specific area to ensure that all hairs are treated during their anagen phase. Most patients achieve optimal results in as little as 4-6 treatments.

Permanence of Treatment

The effectiveness of your treatment will depend on personal circumstances, such as the exact areas being treated and the patient’s willingness to maintain their treatment plan.
You typically do not want to go more than 2-3 months without a procedure once you start your laser hair removal journey. Your treatment plan will include a window for your upcoming treatment since you don’t want to miss an anagen phase!
