LASER HAIR REMOVAL 101: Everything You Need to Know About Laser Hair Removal at The BAWR

Both men and women can agree, shaving is a big inconvenience that is often costly and time-consuming. Luckily, with new advancements in laser hair removal technology, there has never been a better time to make the switch. If you’re ready for smooth and hairless skin, then say goodbye to your razor and hello to laser hair removal.

What do you need to know about laser hair removal at The BAWR? Let’s get into it!

Is laser hair removal painful?

Traditional laser hair removal can be painful, usually feeling like a hot zap or slight sting. It’s important to remember that pain tolerance varies by person, and certain areas of the body may be more sensitive than others during treatment.

However, our laser hair removal is unlike the others. At The BAWR, we offer PAINLESS laser hair removal by utilizing the Motus AY. This game-changing technology eliminates the discomfort of typical laser hair removal, making the experience highly comfortable and pain-free.

How does laser hair Removal work?

Laser hair removal uses pulsed laser energy to target unwanted hair from various areas. These areas often include the underarms, bikini line, legs, upper lip, chin, and more. Specifically, our Motus AY laser breaks down the energy into smaller “packets” that repeatedly zap the hair bulb and blood supply of the follicles in rapid increments. The Motus AY laser utilizes Moveo technology–a handpiece that delivers fast, more efficient energy to destroy the hair, safe, and free from side effects.

Does laser hair removal work on all skin types?

Not all lasers work for all skin types, which is why it’s crucial to ask before you make an appointment. However, at The BAWR, we are proud to offer laser hair removal that is safe and effective for ALL skin tones. Whether you have fine, light hair or a darker skin tone, we can treat without limits.

How many sessions do I Need?

The number of sessions needed will vary depending on the area being treated and the specific hair type of the individual. We usually recommend anywhere between 6-8 treatments for up to 90% permanent laser hair removal. Because the Motus AY laser is so advanced, you may need fewer sessions and could possibly go longer before needing a touch-up treatment.

How many weeks between each appointment?

Time in between sessions will change based on the area being treated. Hormonal areas such as the chin, underarms, and brazilian are going to be anywhere from 4-6 weeks, while areas like the arms, back, and legs are going to range from 8-12 weeks.

How do I prepare for my first session?

Make sure to shave the area being treated the night before your appointment. We also ask that you limit your sun exposure two days before and after your laser hair removal session (as opposed to traditional laser hair removal that requires 14 days before/after treatment)! As laser sees pigment, no self-tanner should be used a week before treatments. Lastly, topical retinols shouldn’t be used three days prior to treatment.

Now that you are a laser hair removal expert, we think you are more than ready to meet us at The BAWR! We offer free consultations so you can receive a treatment plan that’s completely customized for your hair texture, skin tone, and hair-removing goals.
