Put Your Razor Away and Experience Laser Hair Removal

Eighty-five percent of women shave their legs. Even though a majority of women take the time to shave, most would agree they don’t enjoy doing it. The worst part about shaving is that once the job is done, painful razor burns and knicks always tend to appear. They do all this work, only for stubble to grow back hours later. 

Shaving can tack on more than 20 extra minutes to your morning routine. And for all you early risers, you probably know how luxurious 20 extra minutes of sleep could be!

Now there’s a permanent option for those who wish to put time back into their morning routine — laser hair removal. It may sound too good to be true, but Skin Care Essence has helped women in Rochester, Minnesota, be bikini-ready all year round after a few 30-minute procedures. 

How it works

If you’re like most people, you’re probably wondering how laser hair removal works. During a session, your laser technician first applies a cooling gel to your skin. Next, they use a handheld device with a concentrated laser and move it gently across your skin. 

The laser uses light energy to get rid of the hair follicles that produce hair. Our top-of-the-line laser technology allows us to target unwanted hair follicles without damaging your skin. The process is more gentle and pain-free than ever before and allows you to ditch the razor once and for all. 

Can I shave before treatments?

One of the best things about laser hair removal is that when you start treatments, you don’t even have to miss a shave. That’s right, you can still be clean-shaven between treatments. We actually suggest you shave right before each laser hair removal treatment. Why?

A clean shave allows the lasers to better target hair follicles to give you the best possible results. Your laser technician won’t even be able to treat areas with hair growth above the skin because this can damage the laser and make the process more painful for you. 

Shave with a clean razor within 24 hours of your next laser hair removal appointment. However, we suggest shaving as close to your appointment as you can. This will ensure your treatment goes as smoothly as possible--pun intended!

The after care

Most patients need four to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to get the results they want. Between treatments, they are surprised how easy the after care process is. 

One of the best ways you can ensure the best results from your procedure is by avoiding the sun for a week following the treatment. After that, be sure to wear a broad spectrum SPF 30 or greater to protect your skin. This is important because your skin is more susceptible to getting a sunburn or damage while it’s healing. 

If you experience mild discomfort, you can take acetaminophen to ease it. Exfoliate the treated areas to minimize the risk of growing ingrown hairs. And last but not least, always make sure to keep up with your treatment during the designated intervals suggested by your technician.
