Shaving can be a time-consuming hassle, especially if it leaves behind red bumps or gets itchy. Before you know it, it’s time to shave again and you have to start the process all over. Simplify your life and make itchiness and ingrown hairs a thing of the past with laser hair removal. At Timeless Rx, we can help you permanently rid yourself of unwanted hair in just a few sessions.
the benifits of laser hair removal
In addition to getting rid of unsightly hair, laser hair removal has several benefits over traditional waxing and shaving.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal such as:
- Never get razor burns, or ingrown hairs again
- Precise targeting: Our lasers have settings for different hair types and are also calibrated to only target certain areas that have hair, leaving the rest untouched.
- Fast treatments: Our hair removal lasers have the largest spot size to enable the treatment of several hair follicles at once. This makes for an efficient, fast, treatment. You can get your upper lip done in under one minute.
- Money Savings: Laser Hair removal has an upfront cost, but once you’ve has your hair removed, its permanent. That means you will save big in the long term since you’ll no longer be paying for waxing, razors, or shaving gel.
- Targets all locations: You can do laser hair removal on any region of the body. We’ve got you covered whether its armpits, bikini area or buttocks, you can count on us to make sure you get rid of any unwanted hair on any and all body areas.

What can I expect during the laser treatment?
After the skin is cleansed and eye protection is applied, a small hand-piece will be used to deliver each laser light pulse. A light spray of coolant onto the skin will be felt just before each laser pulse. A treatment can take a few minutes to an hour depending on the treatment area and condition being treated.
Does it hurt?
Some patients may feel slight discomfort with each laser pulse, sometimes described like a snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimized by the patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™). For some patients a topical anesthetic may be used prior to treatment.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment, there will be redness and swelling and the area will feel sunburned. A cool compress or aloe vera gel may be applied for comfort following your treatment. Any redness or swelling should resolve within a few hours, but sometimes can last for two to three days.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of sessions depends on the treatment you require and condition of your skin. For laser hair removal, reduction of hair can be seen after one treatment but because hair grows in cycles, not all hair is affected in one treatment. Everyone usually requires at least 3-8 treatments, about 6-8 weeks apart. Other skin conditions may require 1-3 treatments.
How do I prepare for treatment?
Avoid the sun 4-6 weeks before and after treatment. Patients who are actively tan or sunburned will need to re-schedule their treatment session. Additionally you cannot be treated if you have a spray or artificial tan.
For hair removal:
Hair removal patients should avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing for six weeks prior to treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus (cold sores), prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed. Skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed, removing any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products before laser treatment.
What precautions should I take after treatment?
Sun exposure after treatment can increase risk of hyperpigmentation, so we recommend sun avoidance and use of broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen SPF 30 or higher. In the first few days after treatment, don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers. Written post treatment guidelines will be provided after your treatment.
Are there side effects?
There is temporary redness and swelling that occurs immediately after treatment. Other potential side effects include hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (a laser bruise) in the treated area.
How much do treatments cost?
Cost depends on the area and condition being treated. This can be discussed at your consultation
