Laser Hair Removal in Portland
Laser hair removal has become one of the most sought after procedures for removing unwanted hair in the United States. It ranks second in the frequency of procedure carried out, right after wrinkle-relaxing injections. This method of permanent hair reduction utilizes highly concentrated laser beams to penetrate into selected hair follicles in order to completely eliminate the hair within that follicle.
A number of lasers have been developed over the past few years and this procedure was previously intended to be used to remove darker hair on light skin. However, latest developments in laser treatment have made the technology suitable for removing pigmented hair on all skin types. Various types of laser wavelengths are used to perform the procedure, including YAG and alexandrite.
WHY CHOOSE LASER TREATMENT FOR REMOVING HAIR?
Laser treatment is an effective way for removing unwanted hair from a number of places, including the armpits, legs, facial hair as well as bikini hair removal, regardless of whether the excessive growth of hair is a result of a medical condition or not. The majority of people who want to have the procedure performed on them will have to undergo a number of sessions every 4-6 weeks.
Depending on each individual case, the results typically last for years to come with occasional maintenance treatments.
The best way to find out how many sessions you will need is to consult with our experienced estheticians.

Unsightly and excessive body hair can actually be quite embarrassing for both men and women. It can be a lifelong hassle to regularly shave off unwanted hair, not to mention the inconvenience involved is immense. That’s what makes laser hair removal an excellent option.

IS THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE?
When performed by qualified professionals, the laser hair removal procedure is completely safe. To ensure maximum safety, your skin type will be analyzed prior to the treatment to confirm that your skin can be safely treated using this method.
Some people may experience slight side effects such as redness, pink skin or swelling around the areas that were treated – this is nothing to worry about and is very common.
HOW LONG DO THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL RESULTS LAST?
There are no permanent hair removal methods available; however, laser hair removal is the most effective that gives long lasting results. This is a method approved by the FDA to reduce unwanted hair (facial and body) in a quick and efficient manner with long lasting results. At VIP MEDISPA, our patients usually expect a 80 to 90 percent reduction.
The results will vary from one individual to another and you will have to consult with our estheticians to determine a treatment plan that will be best for you.
WHEN WILL THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL RESULT BE VISIBLE?
Some patients start to see results right after their very first treatment. However you may notice the difference after your third session is complete. The laser hair removal treatment starts with the laser let on a low setting, and this is gradually increased as we proceed through the number of sessions. This may cause the results to appear slowly, but it is undoubtedly the most effective way to carry out the procedure to ensure long lasting results.
HOW LONG IS THE WAIT BETWEEN TREATMENTS?
The growth of hair has a three stage cycle: growing, resting and transitional. This is why not all hairs can be treated at the same time. In order to achieve maximum results just like you’ve always wanted, we recommend a gap of 4 to 8 weeks between the laser treatment sessions. The exact time will be made clear when you go to VIP MEDISPA for consultation.
DOES THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCEDURE HURT?
The laser does result in slight discomfort during the procedure. However, most of our patients tell us that the discomfort was much less than they had expected. Laser hair removal provides a comfortable experience as compared to waxing or plucking.

"Thank you all for everything! I will continue to “dance” through life and look as good as I feel!!"
"I just want you all to know how much I appreciate your office and staff. I am doing well – it has been nearly two weeks. I am still sore but the bruising is going away nicely. I am still a little swollen but can definitely see and feel the difference I was hoping for. I thought it was pretty funny when Dr. Max was so candid and said – “I hope you don’t think you will ever have a completely flat tummy…” No, believe me after 5 kids – 4 births – and my mid-life I just don’t want to feel pregnant anymore and that is how I felt. So I already feel better in my clothes and my ego at this stage of my life is good. My emotions are in check right now and I am starting to think about my future as a single, but elderly lady. Thanks so much for the boost. Good work, everyone. Keep it up! I will check in the next time I am in Portland."
"I love it when I look in the mirror now!! The difference is remarkable. I feel that I look natural, but so much better. It is such a joy to come into the spa, the staff is so warm, and make you welcome. You have a lifetime client and friend. Thank you!!"

"My experience at VIP MediSpa gave me freedom to be the young and healthy me that I feel I am – and to look the part. For the first time in many years I am not ashamed of my body! After years of wishing there was just some way to really be rid of my cellulite, I finally actually achieved what I thought might be impossible, and sometimes it still seems too good to be true. I would do it again in a second. Nothing that I experienced in my mesotherapy procedure was more painful than the years of hiding my body. I would do it again in a second!"
