Laser Hair Removal
Say goodbye to unwanted hair
Most of us know what it’s like to have hair growth in areas that you’d much rather stayed smooth. That area might be the arms, underarms, back, shoulders, legs, or other parts of the body. If you’re tired of constantly waxing and shaving the areas with unwanted hair, it might be time to consider laser hair removal.
At Vilate Med Spa in Salt Lake City and Bountiful, we use the latest IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technologies to painlessly remove unwanted hair from all skin types.
The advantage to Laser Hair Removal
The most common areas with unwanted hair growth include the underarms, back, legs, and the bikini area, though some also prefer keeping a clean face. Traditional methods of hair removal, such as tweezing, waxing, and shaving, lead to extremely temporary results. Laser hair removal is the ideal non-surgical cosmetic procedure for long-term or permanent hair removal from the targeted regions.
Laser hair removal is a simple procedure wherein highly-concentrated laser energy is delivered into the targeted hair follicles. The melanin in the follicles absorb the light energy and eventually die.
Laser hair removal also leads to temporary results, though the hair growth is spaced a lot further apart than other traditional methods. However, regular laser hair removal treatments in the same region can also induce permanent hair loss.
Vilate Med Spa leverages the latest IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) devices for advanced laser hair removal procedures. Traditional laser hair removal is often unsuitable for individuals with darker skin colors, but IPL technologies make the procedure viable for all patients. Unlike lasers, IPL devices deliver multiple scattered wavelengths customized to address extremely specific skin concerns and unwanted hair in different skin types.

Laser Hair Removal Overview
Laser hair removal is a fairly simple and straightforward procedure. The clinicians will trim your hair to a few millimeters and apply a numbing cream to the treatment areas to ensure a comfortable experience.
The doctor uses the IPL devices to deliver pulses of light energy into the targeted regions with unwanted hair follicles. The devices will be adjusted and customized according to the location, color, and thickness of your hair follicles. Soon, your hair follicles will absorb the light energy and die.
Your unwanted hair will gradually fall out over the next few weeks. You might experience some redness and irritation in the treatment areas, but the discomfort will dissipate soon. If you want to induce a permanent loss of hair from the targeted regions, your doctor will also provide a treatment schedule with your follow-up sessions.
