What is laser hair removal? 

By now you’ve probably heard of laser hair removal, but you might not know much about the procedure itself. Laser hair removal refers to a variety of treatments that all use laser energy to attack the pigment in your hair follicle. 

Once absorbed, the energy converts into heat, which destroys the follicle’s growth center. Unlike shaving, waxing, or other hair removal options, laser hair removal in Chicago eliminates hair at the source rather than just cutting or removing the existing hair. 

Many laser hair removal devices have to be calibrated to different skin types, tones, and textures, as well as different hair colors. That means you can’t trust just any laser hair removal treatment, it needs to be tailored to your specific skin and hair. 

The hair growth cycle

Effective laser hair removal takes about 5-10 sessions, and that’s all because of the hair growth cycle. Here’s a quick breakdown of the growth cycle and how that affects your treatment.

The growth phase

Cells in the root area of the hair divide rapidly, causing the hair to grow. Hair follicles during this phase–also referred to as the anagen phase–are rich in protein and melanin (aka pigment) which makes them especially receptive to the laser. That melanin is what absorbs the laser and produces heat to damage the follicle. About 85% of your hair follicles are in the growth phase at any time.

The transition phase

After the anagen phase, follicles enter catagen. We call this the transition phase because it is when the hair stops actively growing. Catagen lasts approximately 2-3 weeks and only about 5% of body hair will be in catagen phase at any given time.

The resting phase

The third and final phase of hair growth is telogen, the resting phase. During telogen, the hair begins to shed so the cycle restarts. We know healthy hair on the scalp stays in telogen for 100 days or so. Hair on other parts of the body vary significantly regarding how long they’re in telogen. The 10% of hair that isn’t in the first 2 phases is in telogen.

Dr. Ashley Fratello, a board-certified physician with extensive experience and training in offering aesthetic treatments also oversees our treatments.

How we customize treatment to your needs

Before we recommend any treatment, our expert providers take the time to get to know you and your treatment goals during our consultation process. 

We ask thorough questions about your specific skin, things like:

  • Do you deal with issues like ingrown hairs or folliculitis?
  • How often do you shave or wax?
  • Where on your body do you want your hair removed?

We try to get a big picture look of your skincare goals and desires. During this consultation process, we will also let you feel the laser treatment so you can experience how it’s truly the only painless laser hair removal device in town!

We offer multiple packages for treatment that fit both your needs and your budget, and depending on our schedule we can start your first treatment right after your consultation. 

How to prepare for your treatment

Prior to your appointment, you will need to shave the area you plan to have treated and do not apply any creams or lotions until after treatment. When you come in for your appointment, we apply a thin layer of gel to the skin to help the laser move smoothly. We then use the laser to painlessly and quickly treat the targeted area. You may return to normal daily activities after your treatment.

Frequently asked questions about laser hair removal in Chicago

When is the best time to schedule treatment?

With the Soprano Ice Platinum device, we can perform laser hair removal all year long! This treatment is FDA-approved for all skin types, even tan skin, so there’s no limitations on when you can schedule laser hair removal.

It does take 5-7 sessions of treatment to achieve optimal results, so it’s best to plan ahead if you want to ditch the razor and show off your beautiful, hairless skin by summer. 

What is the cost of laser hair removal?

Determining the cost of your treatment depends on a lot of factors, like where you want treatment and how many treatments you’ll receive. We will go over all of these factors during your consultation and can determine the right package for both your hair removal needs and your budget. 

Keep this in mind though, the lifetime cost of waxing or shaving alone can be as much as $24,000, not to mention all of the time spent shaving and waxing. Plus, the average Brazilian wax is around $65 before tipping. That can all add up quickly! 

When you factor in all of that cost, laser hair removal in Chicago can save you big in the long run.

Who is an ideal candidate for laser hair removal?

Because of the three different wavelengths used by the Soprano Ice Platinum device, nearly everyone is an ideal candidate for laser hair removal at Vesper! We can service all skin types, tones, and textures, as well as almost all hair colors. 

Who is not an ideal candidate for laser hair removal?

Our laser hair removal treatments do require pigmentation in the hair, so our only limitation is gray hair. If you’re worried about turning gray soon, schedule your laser hair removal today before it’s too late!

Is laser hair removal painful?

Unlike other hair removal by pulsed lasers, our treatment is completely pain free. During your consultation, we will even let you feel the laser yourself and see how it’s the only pain-free laser hair removal treatment inChicago!

How should I prepare for treatment?

Prior to your appointment, you will need to shave the area you plan to have treated and do not apply any other creams or lotions until after treatment. 

How long does laser hair removal take?

Depending on the treated area, your laser hair removal in Chicago can take anywhere from 10-60 minutes. With our advanced device, we can remove hair from a man’s full back in as little as 10 minutes!

When can I expect to see results?

Your hair should begin to fall out during the week following your treatment. During this time, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun, so apply a good sunscreen or wear layers if you’re going outside. This is why fall and winter are optimal times for laser hair removal treatment.

Is laser hair removal at Vesper in Chicago permanent?

Barring any hormonal changes, once your hair is gone after 5-10 treatments, it’s gone for good! If you do need any touch ups or maintenance, we will take care of those as well. Unlike other med spas, we are more concerned with your satisfaction than nickel and diming you for any touch ups.
