Laser Hair Removal

If you’re tired of ongoing plucking, shaving, or waxing, laser hair removal could help simplify your life and decrease ingrown hairs. Lash and Company Fort Collins offers safe, comfortable, and affordable laser hair removal treatments.

How Does IPL hair removal work?

The laser precisely targets and removes hair, while leaving the skin undamaged. Our IPL Laser hair removal treatments use light energy to permanently damage or destroy hair follicles—usually on the legs, back, underarms, and face—with the goal of preventing hair from growing back. You’ll need about six to eight laser hair removal treatments staggered every four to eight weeks to see these results. It’s smart to start a series of treatments in the late fall or early winter, so you’ll see smooth skin by summer.

How long does laser hair removal take?

In most cases, an entire area can be treated in a few minutes. We love IPL hair removal because it delivers broad-spectrum visible light at many wavelengths, so it can target a large section of hair at one time. Other types of lasers only target a single hair, by comparison.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate for laser hair removal?

This treatment works best for people with light skin and dark hair, since the contrast makes it easier for the laser to target the pigment in the hair follicle. Light hair (blonde, red, or gray) on fair skin may not yield good results.

Does IPL laser hair removal hurt?

The treatment is relatively painless. A better way to describe it would be mild discomfort. You might notice redness and swelling for the first few hours after laser hair removal. To reduce any discomfort, apply ice to the treated area. If your face was treated, you can safely wear makeup the next day unless your skin feels irritated.

Lash and Company also offer waxing hair removal services.
