LASER HAIR REMOVAL QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Summer has just about arrived throughout Southern Wisconsin and here at Total Body Laser Skin Care of Madison & Milwaukee this is our peak time for Laser Hair Removal Treatments. Laser Hair Removal has become increasingly popular for both woman and men across the county. Our expert staff combined with our state of the art laser hair removal equipment delivers amazing results to patients from Madison to Milwaukee every day. Part of the treatment process at Total Body Laser Skin Care is educating our clients and answering a wide variety of questions for them. Shaving around the scheduled treatment is a popular one.
Q. SHOULD I SHAVE OR WAX BEFORE HAVING LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?
Laser hair removal works by directly targeting the follicle, where hair grows. A concentrated pulse of light energy is harmlessly beamed through the skin into the hair follicle. The pigment in your hair absorbs the heat and light from our laser and damages the hair follicle without harming the skin surface. The hair follicle must be intact to successfully remove the hair through Laser Treatment so we request our patients arrive cleanly shaven before their scheduled appointment. Please do not wax or pluck as you’ll temporarily remove the hair from the follicle. The laser has nothing to target without the hair which will result in an ineffective treatment. Our Licenses Laser Technicians also recommend our clients do not apply any lotions, creams, or deodorants before their Laser Hair Removal session.

Premieres PicoSure with Total Body Laser Skin Care
Madison & Milwaukee December 12th, 2015 – Total Body Laser Skin Care now offers PicoSure, the world’s first and only picosecond aesthetic laser for multiple aesthetic applications including tattoo removal, acne scar treatment, removal of pigmented lesions and wrinkle treatment. This unparalleled breakthrough in laser technology delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the treated area in trillionths of a second.
This unprecedented advancement in laser technology erases tattoos with fewer treatments and better results. Even tattoos that have been treated previously but failed to clear can be removed. PicoSure’s ultra-short pulse duration goes beyond photothermal action creating an intense photomechanical impact, resulting in greater disruption of the target for better clearance with fewer treatments.
“This is an opportunity to treat unwanted tattoos more efficiently with far less recovery time” states Jeff Kohl, Owner of Total Body Laser Skin Care. “After evaluating the treatment and clinical studies, there’s no question that PicoSure’s innovative technology provides us with the most advanced tattoo removal treatment on the market.
If it’s a more youthful appearance you’re looking for, the PicoSure laser also offers a quick and easy non-surgical, non-invasive option that provides impressive results without the typical discomfort and downtime of traditional laser skin treatments. Unlike lasers in the past that relied on intense heat energy which may have caused pain and led to significant skin redness and downtime, PicoSure’s gentler treatment offers a unique combination of leading-edge technologies. Our light-based treatment targets all three layers of photodamaged tissue, epidermal pigment and mid-dermal wrinkles.
“We’re excited to offer this new laser treatment to our patients for treating acne scars, wrinkles, and removing unwanted pigment in fewer treatments. The results are impressive and patients are satisfied with the treatment experience.”

PicoSure Laser Hair Removal Facts
What is Laser Hair Removal Really?
Imagine a day when you no longer need razors, waxing or painful electrolysis to get rid of unwanted body hair. At Total Body Laser Skin Care of Madison & Milwaukee we offer the latest, state-of-the-art, PicoSure laser technology that awards patients with a safe, fast and effective alternative to dealing with unwanted or disliked body hair. It is affordable, fast, safe and there is no down time.
Laser hair removal can be done on almost all parts of the body. Some parts include the face, back, bikini lines, legs, arms and underarms.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Our PicoSure Lasers work by emitting a specialized light that is passed through the skin and preferentially absorbed by its target, be it an unwanted blood vessel, birthmark, tattoo or in this case, hair.
The laser used for hair removal targets the melanin, or color, in the hair follicle, damaging the follicle and removing the hair. Total Body Laser Skin Care features the PicoSure laser at our office conveniently located for our Plainfield and Chicago clients.
RESULTS: How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Hair grows in a cycle that spans six to twelve weeks. This is the amount of time that it takes hair to grow from the base of the follicle to the surface of the skin. Because hair does grow in these cycles, only a portion of your hair is being treated in the proper state with each laser treatment.
Initially, it is recommended that you undergo a series of four to eight treatments at three to eight week intervals to treat all the hair. These treatments will be followed up by a period of evaluation to determine how much hair will regrow and how fast the hair will return. This can be followed up with periodic “touch-up” visits.
**Once again, Total Body Laser Skin Care guarantees results and you won’t be charged a fee for touch up visits. Simply swing in to our Plainfield – Chicago office and we’ll make sure one of our PicoSure Laser Professionals finalizes the removal.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
In case you didn’t notice, the temperature is really heating up under the hot desert sun. How does this seasonal shift affect you? It’s bikini weather! We all experience those unsightly red bumps around the bikini line. While red bumps might be more attractive than a forest where it shouldn’t be, we’re here to offer alternatives to tame your nether tresses.
Tips for laser hair removal:
You’ve been primping this area for years, maybe even decades. You might want to toss in the towel and accept the fate of an untamed bikini line, but alas, it’s swimsuit season! There is still one last option: Wisconsin’s leader in laser hair removal —you guessed it…Total Body Laser Skin Care. Most people need five to six treatments before they achieve their desired results, but think about never having to shave or wax that area again! At Paradise Medspa we use the Cynosure Elite laser systems for hair removal. These laser uses two separate wavelengths of light, allowing customization for each patient’s needs based on skin tone. The laser targets the growing hair follicle by heating it and damaging its blood supply so the hair cannot grow back. Your skin will need to be treated every four to six weeks to make sure each growth stage is successfully destroyed, leading to permanent hair reduction. The feeling you will experience during laser hair removal is compared to a series of rubber band snaps against the skin, and mild, temporary redness can occur after the treatment. But no more shaving or ingrown hairs, meaning no little red bumps!
What’s your preferred method for reducing those little red bumps? Let us know and make sure to let us know if you have any questions about laser hair removal!
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Before the Procedure
What should you do before a laser hair removal procedure?
Schedule a consultation.
Feel confident that laser hair removal is for you.
If you decide you want in on this permanent solution for unwanted hair, the first step is to schedule a consultation. Speaking with a laser technician will answer any questions you may have about the hair removal procedure, although we wouldn’t be surprised if this article answers them all for you too. The technician will also review your medical history, address any concerns, and discuss what is expected during and after the in-office treatment. The two of you will talk about the amount of time the procedure is estimated to take and discuss the number of treatments recommended to reach your treatment goal.
Once you have an understanding of our laser hair removal service, the next step is to come in for your first laser treatment!
During the Procedure
What can I expect during my procedure?
Trimming of the area
Customized Elite Laser system settings
A laser hair removal treatment using advanced technology
Application of cooling gel
A first time for anything can be scary, but not if you know what to expect. When you come into Total Body Laser Skin Care for your first hair removal procedure, the laser technician will begin by trimming the area so that the hair ends just above the skin. After a short trimming of your hair, the technician will apply a small amount of cooling gel to your skin as a method of preparation before picking up the handheld laser.
The technician will then adjust the settings of the wavelength produced by the laser before application based on your hair color, thickness, location and skin tone. Once the correct settings are applied and the laser is activated, it’s time to zap those hair follicles so that they’re gone forever!
The hair removal process begins as the laser sends pulses of a highly concentrated beam of light down to the root of your hair follicles, where the beginning of hair growth originates. The pigment in each hair follicle then absorbs the light sent from the laser, causing damage to the follicle and eventually stopping the cycle of hair growth.
After the entire area is treated with the Elite systems laser, this life-changing procedures ends with an application of cooling gel that helps reduce any feelings of discomfort.
