What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is the most popular method of permanent hair reduction. Both men and women prefer laser hair removal to the hassle and short lasting results of shaving, tweezing and waxing. With Laser hair removal, unwanted body hair that grows on the chin and lip, chest, back, legs, underarms, the bikini area and virtually any other area of the body is safely and effectively targeted, providing long term results that leave behind smooth and silky skin.*

Laser Hair Removal Before and After
While results may vary, Laser hair removal before and after pictures reveal how effectively unwanted body hair can be reduced to produce long lasting areas of smooth and silky, bare skin.
What Areas of the Body can be treated with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can reduce unwanted body hair from head to toe, but the most common treatment areas include the chin and upper lip, under arms, legs, and the bikini area. Men typically opt for laser hair removal to reduce unwanted body hair from their back and chest.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal works by targeting melanin, the pigment in our nails and hair that absorbs light. During a laser hair removal session, the cosmetic laser safely blasts each hair with bursts of high energy light which is absorbed by the melanin in the hair’s root. Absorbing this energy effectively destroys the hair follicle, halting hair growth and damaging the hair’s ability to grow back.*
Laser hair removal requires several sessions to effectively treat the entire area of unwanted body hair. This is because hair grows in 3 different phases. During the anagen phase, or the stage of active growth, the hair contains the most melanin. In order for the energy from the cosmetic laser to destroy the hair follicle, the light must be absorbed by the melanin found in the hair’s root during the anagen phase.¹
How many Laser Hair Removal Sessions will I need?
Laser hair removal can remove hair from nearly anywhere on the body, but some areas require more sessions than others. The amount of sessions needed for smooth, long lasting results depends on the patient and the area being treated.
Hair does not grow in sync with one another. Strands in the same area can be in different phases of the growth cycle. Laser hair removal will effectively reduce the hairs that are currently in the anagen stage, but treatment must be repeated at a later time to catch the hairs that were in other growth phases. The percentage of hair in the anagen stage also varies throughout different regions of body hair. Arm pit hair or hair in the bikini area has more strands in the anagen phase than hair found on the face. Since more strands of hair in the arm pit or bikini region are affected during a laser hair removal session, these areas require less cycles than facial hair to achieve optimal hair reduction.
During your free consultation your hair removal specialist will discuss how many treatment cycles are expected for the specific area you want to remove hair from.*
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Laser hair removal is FDA approved for permanent hair reduction but many patients still wonder “will hair grow back after laser hair removal?” While results may vary, the vast majority of patients see long lasting results. When hair is targeted by the hair removal Laser, high intensity bursts of energy severely damage the hair follicle. When hair follicles are damaged, they typically will not grow back.*

What Type of hair removal laser does Numa Spa Use?
Numa Spa uses state of the art technology with the GentleMax Pro from Candella Medical. There are several types of lasers used for hair reduction, and the GentelMax Pro laser is recognized World Wide as one of the best hair removal lasers in the buisness.
