For most people, pain from laser hair removal in Kansas City is minimal, especially compared to other hair removal treatments like waxing. Many describe the feeling as the quick snapping sensation of a rubber band against the skin.
Laser Hair Removal Means Lasting Results
Unwanted body or facial hair can be time-consuming and costly to get rid of. Time and money spent on shaving, tweezing, epilation, or waxing can make your skin irritated, only to have the hair grow back soon after. All of these factors can cause unnecessary stress over unwanted hair, making the need for a long-term solution: laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal with the Kansas City Skin & Cancer Center permanently reduces hair on the face or body by killing the hair follicle and the hair’s ability to grow. The laser technology behind this treatment targets the melanin, or pigment, of the hair to zap the hair follicle at the source.
Laser hair removal can work on many body zones, and patients love this treatment’s long-term effects and smooth skin.

Common Questions About Laser Hair Removal in Kansas City
Laser hair removal is safe if you go to a qualified provider. You should get an in-depth consultation with a trained laser professional, like the aestheticians here on the Kansas City Skin & Cancer Center team, to ensure you are a good candidate.
How permanent laser hair removal is for you depends on your hair’s density, growth cycle, and other factors. Most people may need a yearly touch-up session to make their results permanent. Any hair regrowth after laser hair removal is usually less dense, finer, and lighter color.
Whether it is worth getting laser hair removal depends on your individual priorities. For many, unwanted body hair takes up a lot of time and energy, and methods like shaving and waxing require more effort.
While the cost of laser hair removal is an investment, many patients find that getting laser hair removal is worth it for the long-term results and benefits.
