Laser Hair Removal

At Spa by OWM at OWM Integrative Wellness in Buffalo, New York, the team provides safe and effective laser hair removal treatments. Call the office or request an appointment online today to find out more about laser hair removal at the concierge medicine practice.
Spa by OWM uses the most advanced IPL technology for hair removal. The high frequency processor allows our aestheticians to slide the IPL head along the treatment, while delivering a rapid succession of high intensity pulses area instead of “stamping”. This technique allows for fast coverage of large regions of the body that need hair removal- perfect for backs, abdomen, and thighs.
The integrated cooling in the IPL crystal provides for a comforable treatment experience with no need to pre-numb the region.
What can I expect during laser hair removal?
Your Medical aesthetician will review the details of your laser hair removal treatments at your consultation, so you know what to expect.
While you relax in the spa chair, your provider cleans your skin with an antiseptic agent, places the laser tool over your skin, and activates the light energy.
You may feel a snapping sensation during treatment as the light energy hits the hair follicle. If you’re sensitive to pain, let your provider know so they can adjust your treatment plan.
Laser hair removal at OWM Integrative Wellness takes 15-90 minutes, depending on the size and area of your body undergoing treatment.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment that gets rid of unwanted hair. OWM Integrative Wellness uses intense pulsed light (IPL) for laser hair removal.
This treatment works by targeting the pigments in the hair follicle under your skin. The light energy heats the follicle and destroys it, preventing further hair growth.
The OWM Integrative Wellness team uses laser hair removal to get rid of unwanted dark hair from many areas of the body, including:
- Bikini line
If you’re tired of your usual hair removal routine, schedule a consultation with our medical aestheticians at OWM Integrative Wellness to learn more about laser hair removal and how it can benefit you.
What to Know Before You Go:
Our hair removal IPL system provides an effective, comfortable, fast, and pain free hair removal experience.
Preparation for Treatment
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
Your provider at OWM Integrative Wellness gives specific instructions on what steps you need to take to prepare for laser hair removal.
The team requests you stop tweezing and waxing at least six weeks before starting treatment. These hair removal treatments disturb the hair follicle, affecting the results of your laser treatment.
Before laser hair removal, you also need to avoid sun exposure and tanning lotions. Tanned skin makes your treatments less effective and increases the risk of hyperpigmentation.
When can I expect to see results from laser hair removal?
You should notice a reduction in hair after your first laser hair removal session. However, because hair grows in stages, you may need additional treatments to get the best results.
