Shaving and preparation of the area should be done at home and is not part of the clinic pricing. The laser treatments kill the hair under the skin at the hair follicle. Top hair just gets in the way. For areas like the bikini, shape it with shaving the way you want it to look.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Below are some of our answers to the most common FAQs about our laser hair removal service in Kansas City, Overland Park, Shawnee, KS and the KC Metro. We hope they help and please call us at (913) 962-1869 if you have any additional questions we can help with.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a common cosmetic procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair from the body. Over one or multiple treatments, the laser destroys the hair follicles, preventing future hair growth in the treated area, making it a great solution for those wanting hair removal in Kansas City and Johnson County, KS.
Is Laser Hair Removal Considered To Be Safe?
Yes, laser hair removal is generally safe when performed by a trained and licensed professional, like the laser specialists at Laser Derm Med Spa. However, like any medical procedure, there are some risks and potential side effects following treatments, such as minor skin irritation, redness, and discoloration.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Laser hair removal is permanent hair reduction, not permanent hair removal. It’s not uncommon for patients to require maintenance treatments once a year, even after the area has been fully treated. The reason: The laser targets and destroys your current hair follicles, but new follicles can develop due to hormonal changes or shifts in weight.
How Long Does It Take to Recover From A KC Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
Generally, there is no recovery time needed for laser hair removal. However, some patients may experience some minor redness and skin irritation in the treated area, which typically resolves within a few hours to a few days.
What Are the Risks of Laser Hair Removal?
The biggest risk with lasers is eye damage. Both you and the person operating the laser should be wearing goggles specific to the type of laser that’s being used. Other risks can include blistering, scarring, and burns that can discolor your skin. It’s normal for there to be some redness and swelling, but if you’re getting burned or blistered, then the technician is using the wrong type of laser for your skin type.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
The procedure can sting-but not a lot. It’s often described as feeling like a rubber band snapping against your skin. But it only stings for a millisecond, which is the time it takes for the laser to target your hair follicle and zap it away (of course, this means that it will sting for each hair follicle zapped). While your skin may be slightly red or puffy after the procedure, you shouldn’t feel any pain in the area by the time you leave our med spa.
How Many Treatments Does It Take?
Each person is different, and the number of treatments needed to meet your goals can vary based on many factors. In our experience, most clients achieve about a 50% reduction in hair after just three sessions. And by approximately 5-8 sessions, there’s typically about an 80-90% improvement. We recommend scheduling sessions every four to eight weeks, depending on the area being treated.
What Kind of Laser Do We Use?
We use the Vectus Laser for our laser hair removal, which is a diode laser designed for all skin types. It uses a patented cooling system that chills the skin on contact before and after every pulse of laser light, which provides increased comfort as well as increased efficacy. The Vectus also includes an exclusive “SkinTel” device, which takes measurements of the patient’s melanin content and provides recommended treatment parameters to ensure both safety & efficacy.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Most laser hair removal procedures work from a laser emitting a light that is quickly absorbed by the pigment in the hair (we use the Vectus laser). The laser’s light energy is then converted into a concentrated and targeted heat, which damages the hair follicles within the skin that help produce your body’s hairs.
This laser heat impact on the hair follicles causes future hair growth to be inhibited or at least delayed, in a good amount of cases, multiple Kansas City hair removal treatments are usually necessary to get to the desired level of hair removal.
How Do You Prepare For Laser Hair Removal?
Our local team recommends that you are recently showered with completely clean skin, with no lotions, creams or oils applied to your skin before coming in for your laser hair removal appointment. We also ask that the area you are having treated be completely shaved between 4 hours and 24 hours of your appointment time.
We also ask that you avoid heavy sun exposure or tanning beds, as well as Botox or chemical peels on the area to be treated, for the two weeks prior to your laser hair removal appointment.
