Laser Treatment Q & A

What is laser treatment?

Laser treatment uses advanced technology to address many cosmetic concerns. At Lancaster Wellness Med Spa, the team offers laser treatment for tattoo and hair removal.

The medical spa has an intense-pulsed light (IPL) laser for treatment. IPL uses powerful flashes of light at varying wavelengths. The light targets the pigments under your skin without damaging the surface.

Lancaster Wellness Med Spa also has laser liposuction, which is a laser treatment they use to get rid of unwanted fat.

What happens during laser treatment for tattoo removal?

For tattoo removal, the IPL laser treatment targets the tattoo ink under the skin. The light energy heats the pigments in the ink, shattering it. Your body then removes the ink fragments, and your tattoo fades over time.

You may feel a snapping sensation when the light energy hits the ink under your skin. Though uncomfortable, most people tolerate tattoo removal without the need for anesthesia. If you’re sensitive to pain, let the team know so they can adjust your treatment to minimize discomfort.

The length of your laser treatment depends on the size of your tattoo. The larger the tattoo, the longer the session.

After your laser treatment, the team covers your tattoo with antibacterial cream and a bandage. Laser treatment makes your skin more sensitive, and you must protect the treated area from the sun to prevent complications.

You need a series of laser treatments to get the best results. The team at Lancaster Wellness Med Spa provides your personalized plan at your initial consultation.

What happens during laser treatment for hair removal?

For laser hair removal, the light energy in the IPL laser targets the pigmented hair follicle under the skin, heating and destroying the follicle so it no longer grows hair.

The team recommends you stop plucking and waxing at least six weeks before your laser hair removal session. They also request you shave the hair in the area undergoing treatment the day of your laser treatment to minimize discomfort.

Laser hair removal may take a few minutes or an hour depending on the size of the area being treated. Because hair grows in cycles, you need 2-6 sessions every 4-12 weeks to get the best results. 

The team reviews the details of your treatment plan at your initial consultation so you know what to expect.
