Laser Hair Removal Milton
If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal in Milton may be an option worth considering. Laser hair removal treatment is available at all of our LightTouch Med Spa locations. Our team of doctors and nurses are specially trained and certified to administer this treatment to our valued patients who are seeking hair removal on areas of their body. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures and it involves beaming highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light and that is what destroys the hair.

What are some of the benefits of laser hair removal in Milton?
Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.
What to expect during your laser hair removal treatment
Just before the procedure, your hair that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color. Depending on the laser or light source used, you and the technician (doctor or nurse administering the treatment) will need to wear appropriate eye protection. It will also be necessary to protect the outer layers of your skin with a cold gel or special cooling device. This will help the laser light penetrate the skin.
Next, the technician will give a pulse of light to the treatment area and watch the area for several minutes to make sure the best settings were used and to check for bad reactions. When the procedure is completed, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, or cold water to ease any discomfort.
