What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a convenient, popular elective cosmetic service for the long-term reduction of unwanted hair on the face and body. This laser treatment leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother and provides longer-lasting results when compared to other hair removal options, such as shaving or waxing. Our team at The Skin Shop Medspa Scottsdale performs safe and efficient laser hair removal treatments for both women and men in common areas, like the arms, legs, back, face, chest, armpits, and intimate areas.

What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal
During your appointment, you will relax in a private treatment room and a member of our team will cleanse the areas of your body needing hair removal to get rid of oil, dirt, and residue. A laser technician will slightly stretch the targeted area to create a direct path between the laser and the hair follicle root. The laser's energy targets and disables the hair follicle, which prevents it from growing back. You will probably need to get 3 – 5 sessions over 3 – 4 weeks to achieve optimal results. Your treatments will be spaced out in order to give the affected areas a chance to heal. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to cycle into the phase of active growth so the laser can be more effective. The specialized laser technology we use at The Skin Shop Medspa Scottsdale is able to target only the hair follicle, preserving the skin and other tissue in the treatment area.
While the treatment is gentle, treated areas of your skin may feel like they have a mild sunburn. Following your treatment, you are free to resume your normal activities, but you should refrain from strenuous activity or extended time outdoors for a period of 24 hours to let the treated skin heal. Soothing creams and cold packs can alleviate any mild discomfort following your appointment.
Skin Shop Medspa Scottsdale Reviews
Made an appointment for my girlfriend and she had nothing but great things to say about Shelly and Cyndie. She'll be back and strongly recommends going here! Also, just sent you an email. Looking forward to your response :)
I had a great time at my first time in the Skin Med Spa! I got a hydra facial that was way over due, Cyndie did a great job and was very efficient and professional. She even did the light blue therapy on me with a jelly mask that smelled very very good and was cooling. My face wasn’t red after and was very glowy! I will definitely be back next month.
Cyndie and Shelly both were amazing!! The services they provided me came out great and more then what I could've imagined, they truly do GREAT work! The whole experience was very comfortable as well as personable because you almost feel like you've known them forever. I now have a membership with them and it is very much worth it!
Cyndie is by far the best in Az. She always does exactly what I need. She also works with my very difficult schedule. She’s like the fountain of youth. Botox amazing,filler incredible, skin care take all my money. Thanks again Cyndie at The Skin Shop MedSpa Scottsdale. Look her up!

Laser Hair Removal FAQs
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Considered an effective treatment, laser hair removal produces long-lasting results. While men and women can enjoy the results of the treatment for many years, laser hair removal is considered semi-permanent because some hair may be unaffected. However, patients find most of their hair will not grow once their treatment plan is complete, and even if some hairs pop up, it's easier to deal with. More laser sessions can be scheduled to take care of new growth and any stragglers.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair growth happens in cycles. When some hair follicles are growing, other follicles are dormant. Since every follicle is in a different stage, multiple sessions are typically needed to target each hair follicle when it is growing. By spreading out your treatments over several weeks, you will be able to achieve the smoothest, most effective result.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal may cause some discomfort, but it is not considered painful. Patients will feel a slight sting as the laser zaps the hair follicle. Your technician may use a numbing ointment on your skin before the start of the treatment session. Patients who have been getting waxed report laser hair removal feels more comfortable than a regular waxing session.
