Laser Hair Removal Q&A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is your answer if you’re tired of shaving or waxing and want your hair removed forever.

Laser hair removal uses a device that sends a specific light beam to targeted follicles while bypassing your skin. The laser destroys the follicle, weakening your hair shaft and ultimately disables the reproductive growth cycle. 

With several treatments spaced apart, the follicle eventually dies, and your hair stops growing.

What areas can laser hair removal treat?

You can have laser hair removal performed on almost any part of your body, including your: 


  • Chest
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Stomach
  • Groin
  • Buttocks


The sky's the limit when it comes to areas where you want hair removed. You can also have laser hair removal performed on your ears, nose, forehead, scalp, and between your eyebrows.

How do I prepare for laser hair removal?

Before your procedure, your Je Lu Ja MedSpa provider consults with you about how to prepare, what to expect, and how many sessions you might need. This is your time to ask questions and gather the information you need.


Don't pluck or wax your skin six weeks before your scheduled laser hair removal appointment. You want your hair follicles to be intact for the procedure to work. You should also avoid tanning in the sun, lying on tanning beds, or using self-tanning lotions because these actions can increase the melanin in your skin.


Just days before your treatment, do your best to avoid pain relievers, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and blood thinners.


Right before your appointment, clean the targeted area well, and don’t use any moisturizers or creams. You want your skin to be clean and dry.


The number of treatments needed depends on your skin type and the size of the area being treated.

What can I expect after laser hair removal?

After your treatment, you might experience some slight discomfort. Redness and swelling might appear on and around the treated areas within a few hours after your procedure. 

For effective results, wear loose clothing to prevent sweating, stay out of the sun, and don’t work out for the first 48 hours to avoid aggravating the treated areas with perspiration.
