Laser Hair Removal in Saint Louis
Do you live in the Saint Louis area and get sick of shaving multiple times a week? While laser hair removal isn’t a new procedure, recent advances in technology now allow for better results, with less irritation to the skin. The state of the art equipment used here at Find a Better You allow for patients to stop in on their lunch break, get a treatment, and head back to work, like any other day. Even better, our laser system uses a specialized dynamic cooling device to protect your skin while it is treated as well as minimize discomfort.
What Separates Find A Better You to Most Med Spas?
We offer the lowest prices but we don't sacrifice our quality. We use the GentleMax Pro Laser from Candela (also known as the YAG laser) that is able to be used on every person rather than a few types of skin types. Most lasers can only do lighter skin on the Fitzpatrick Scale (1-4). With our laser we can do all types of skin including the darker skins (5-6). Also, our laser has a full range of sensitivity for the more sensitive areas. All of that and we still have the lowest prices.
What are Laser Hair Treatments Like?
Everyone’s treatment plan will be different depending on several factors such as hair color / type, body area, and skin tone. These factors are then used to determine how treatments will be administered to achieve your goals. We can treat anyone with our great GentleMax Pro Laser from Candela. Once the treatment begins, a laser is delivered through a small handheld device used by your practitioner. Once the laser light is directed at the skin, the targeted area then absorbs it, and converts it to heat, effectively killing the hair follicle.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
Laser hair removal is not painful, you can feel a little discomfort but we also have numbing cream if needed. After you get laser hair removal, there is no pain. We use a specialized system to minimize any discomfort of the procedure. Micro bursts of cryogen are sprayed on the targeted area just milliseconds before the laser fires. This protects the surrounding cells thereby preventing much of the pain in the first place as well as minimizing post treatment redness.

IPL Laser vs. Medical Grade Laser
A medical grade laser penetrates deeper (as seen in the graphics below) by targeting the area without targeting the skin. The IPL laser works well on many skin treatments, but is just not as safe or effective as a medical grade laser. For Laser Hair Removal, we only use a medical grade laser (Gentlemax Pro aka YAG Laser). We use a medical grade laser for a variety of reasons such as: it's safer, and more effective than an IPL laser. To learn more about Laser vs IPL, check out our blog post here.

How many treatments does it take?
Usually it take 6-8 treatments to fully go away. The reason it take more than one is because the hair growth cycle is in four stages. And you can only go one stage at a time, going deeper until you reach the bottom. Here's a great explanation of the process.
Where can I have Laser Hair Removal Done?
Anywhere you have hair at, we can remove it for 6-12 months! And if the hair comes back, it's a lot lighter and thinner; so it's harder to see. That includes your: face, chin, arms, armpits, legs, and even a Brazilian.
Can I just use a Home Hair Removal instead?
The home use lasers you see on the internet are not safe. They are actually IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), which if not used correctly can: burn retinas, and they remove you hair like a razor and come back the same as a razor. Compare that time to 6-12 months and theres no comparison. Anyone that touches a laser here is Laser Certified. Whoever does your laser hair removal treatment, ask them if they are certified. And when done by a professional it is completely safe, it's not worth the risk or the lack of results from the home IPL lasers.
Is Laser Hair Removal for Men?
Yes; Laser Hair Removal is for anyone and works for anyone. If you want more information of Men's Laser Hair Removal check out our Men's Med Spa page.
Can LHR help with Ingrown Hairs and Acne?
A huge added benefit is that our laser also helps with ingrown hairs and acne. Our Gentlemax Pro laser gives us the ability to fade acne scarring and discoloration, making it a dual acne treatment. How awesome is that!
Avoid sun exposure for two weeks prior to your procedure. Also, do not bleach, pluck, or wax 4 to 6 weeks before your treatment. If you have recently tanned, wait for the tan to fade.
Laser treatments have been around for decades now and are infinitely safer than they were may years ago. At Find a Better You we only use the safest and most effective equipment, operated by our highly trained staff.
Initial redness will last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours depending on skin types. Afterwards simply do not bleach or pluck any remaining hair for 4 to 6 weeks after the treatment.
