Your Laser Hair Removal in Oswego
Areas of Treatment

15-90 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
Minimal to none
Frequency of Maintenance
Depending on the area being treated, subsequent treatments sessions are scheduled at the 8 or 10 week mark. Generally, body areas require longer intervals in between laser hair removal sessions as hair growth cycles on the body are more spaced out.
When you come in for your consultation for laser hair removal in Oswego, we request you not to shave the area so that we can see the amount of hair, its color, how coarse or fine it is, in order to develop the best treatment protocols suited for your skin.
After explaining the procedure and the science of how laser hair removal works, we can provide an idea of what kind of results you will see from your sessions.
On the day of your treatment, you will need to shave the area prior to the laser hair removal session. The best results can be achieved by shaving as closely as possible to your skin so that the maximum amount of energy can penetrate your skin, to provide more effective results in destroying the hair permanently.
At the time of your laser hair removal treatment, the technician will draw a grid-like pattern on the area of the body being treated so the pulses can be delivered in a more accurate form. You will be asked to wear protective eyewear before the laser hair removal treatment is performed. Using optimum parameters, your practitioner will deliver quick and painless pulses over the entire treatment area to completely destroy the hair follicles that are in the anagen phase.
Some minor redness and bumps will be noticeable immediately following your laser hair removal treatment in Oswego. This is actually a good indication that the follicular region has been adequately destroyed. These effects will be short-term and generally subside in a couple of hours.
Keep the area clean following your laser hair removal treatment. Application of sunscreen is necessary especially if you will be outdoors for prolonged periods. Following your laser session, in 4-5 days you will notice some shedding of the hair. It may take a few days for all of the hair to fall off completely. After the entire are has shed, your skin will be free of hair and silky-smooth for a while before you have to come in for your next treatment.

Laser Hair Removal Expectations
- It is best to follow the guidance we provide you for optimum results. The recommended treatment intervals are necessary to adhere to as each part of the body grows hair at differing intervals. Growth cycles will vary depending on the part of the body.
- The laser can only effectively target hair that is rooted and connected to the blood supply (dermal papilla). This growth is considered to be in anagen phase.
Our GentleMax Pro is the gold standard for laser hair removal and provides over 90% permanent reduction on all skin-types. Some key points to note:
- A small amount of residual hair growth may surface at some point in the months or years following your treatments. This is normal and is because it is impossible to treat every single hair in the anagen phase. It is very likely, some hair may never be in the optimum treatment window at the time of your session. We will provide you touch-up treatments at a very low cost should this occur.
- Hormone imbalances may contribute to hair growth in which case it is likely that the growth will significantly reduce but never be eliminated permanently.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many laser hair removal treatments are necessary to get permanent results?
Laser hair removal treatments will vary from person to person. Light colored skin is able to absorb heat more quickly with less adverse effects, so stronger energy settings can be used on the Alexandrite laser. 6-8 sessions are generally necessary to ensure best results for light skin. Dark colored skin needs a special YAG laser to effectively destroy the hair without creating adverse reactions. This may require 8-10 sessions however. At SMooth Solutions, we have both wavelengths for optimum results.
Can I tweeze, wax, or epilate the hair?
Epilating the hair will remove the entire shaft and bulb from the follicular tissue, which will leave an empty pocket with nothing to absorb the heat from the beam of the laser. As a result, during the laser hair removal treatment, none of the anagen hair will be present, so the treatment will not be effective in destroying the hair.
Is laser hair removal in Oswego painful?
When performed correctly, laser hair removal treatments do not hurt. Most clients compare the mild sensation from the pulses to a rubber band snap.
There are limitations to Laser Hair Removal treatments, and we know that. At SMooth Solutions Medspa, we offer you Electrolysis treatments for true permanent hair removal!
Hair that is gray, white or blonde cannot be targeted by lasers. We offer electrolysis at our Oswego location in combination with laser to clients who need both to achieve permanent hair removal.
