If you’re fed up with the hassle of regular, at-home hair removal, get ready to transform your life with laser hair removal, and enjoy silky smooth skin while saying good-bye to shaving, waxing, and tweezing!
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S. and thousands of individuals, both men and women, seek laser hair removal every year.
With laser hair removal you can enjoy silky smooth skin without the hassles of regular shaving, waxing, or tweezing, freeing up all that time so you can enjoy more of your life!
Let’s face it, almost anything you wear will be enhanced if your skin is hairless and silk-smooth when you wear it. This is why the vast majority of adult men and women practice some form of ongoing cosmetic hair removal regularly, such as shaving, waxing, and/or tweezing unwanted hair from parts of the body such as the face, underarms, arms, back, and chest.
Once you try laser hair removal, you’ll wonder how you ever found the time (and money) to keep up with years of shaving, waxing, and tweezing treatments in an attempt to maintain silky smooth skin and look great in any outfit.
There are countless ways in which we express who we are. As we shed away the things that hide our true identity, we gain the ability to live more freely and confidently. From pronouns, to lifestyle, to physical appearance, each step in exploring our true selves brings us closer to living life genuinely and openly.
Laser hair removal can be an especially liberating experience for patients in transition. Laser hair removal offers our transgender patients the ability to live their truth without the burdens of continuous appointments, razor burn or skin irritation, ingrown hairs, or stubble attributed to temporary hair removal methods.
Pryor Health takes the comfort and confidence of our transgender patients seriously, and we are excited to help you live life on your terms!
Laser treatment is effective at removing unwanted hair from all the common treatment areas, such as the face, legs, back, arms, underarms, bikini line, as well as almost any other area on the body.
At Pryor Health in Rockford Laser Hair Removal treatment may be focused to achieve very precise results on delicate areas such as the chin, upper lip, and eyebrows. There are countless benefits to laser hair removal, not the least of which include the money you’ll save on years worth of shaving and other hair removal supplies. Other benefits include:
Laser hair removal will save you considerable amounts of time each month on the hassles of regular hair removal treatments. Lasers work quickly and efficiently to cover large treatment areas. Each laser pulse takes only a fraction of a second and treats many hairs simultaneously.
The procedure can offer permanent removal of about 80 - 90 percent of unwanted hair. Darker and coarser hairs can typically take an average of about three to seven sessions, but you won’t have to worry about hair re-growth in those areas once completed.
Lasers may be precisely directed to selectively treat the desired areas without affecting the surrounding skin. You can even hone in on delicate or small areas such as the eyebrows and upper lip, with exact precision.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) presents a number of challenges for those who live with it, including weight gain, irregular menstrual cycles, and acne. Hair growth may increase on the face and body due to increased androgen levels.
Fortunately, excess hair growth can be easily, effectively, and permanently eliminated with laser hair removal. This simple solution can prevent embarrassing stubble, razor burn, and ingrown hairs, and leave you with smooth, flawless results.
While laser hair removal will stop the growth of every treated hair, PCOS can cause new hair growth if not properly managed. It is important to develop and maintain a plan to most effectively manage all aspects of your PCOS.
In addition to hair removal, PCOS therapeutic regimens often include lifestyle changes, menstrual cycle management, weight management, and fertility treatments. With the help of Pryor Health, you can gain control over your PCOS and live your life with confidence!
In preparation for the procedure, the hair that will be treated must be trimmed to a length of only a few millimeters. We will apply a topical numbing ointment 20 - 30 minutes prior to the procedure, to help keep you comfortable during treatment and alleviate the potential stinging sensation that the laser pulses may cause.
The laser device is extremely versatile and can be adjusted precisely, according to the specific treatment area, as well as the specific color and thickness of the hair being treated, and even the color of your skin. During the actual treatment, the device beams direct highly concentrated pulses of light directly into hair follicles. The light is absorbed by pigmentation in the follicles, which over time, makes the hair follicle dissolve.
During a laser hair removal treatment, light energy converts to heat, destroying hair follicles, which inhibits future hair re-growth in the treatment area. Once the procedure is completed, which usually takes under an hour, depending on the treatment area and the density of your hair in that area, you may use ice packs, anti-inflammatory lotions or creams, or cold water to alleviate any stinging or burning sensation or discomfort.
Bodybuilding requires work, both in and out of the gym. Between training, focusing on nutrition, and the countless other tasks required to prep for each competition, spare time just doesn’t seem to exist. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to eliminate even one thing from your competition to-do list? Laser hair removal can do that!
Laser hair removal can give you the ability to invest more time into other areas of your competition prep. You can be confident that the physique you’ve worked so hard to achieve won’t be blemished by unwanted hair.
Are you ready to be competition-smooth all the time? Highlight your hard work on stage with a completely sleek, lustrous appearance. Laser hair removal can eliminate the ongoing time-related and monetary expense of temporary hair removal treatments so you can reach that next level!
Laser hair removal has benefits that reach far beyond cosmetic concerns and may prove especially impactful for amputees.
Hair removal has long been recommended for amputees to prevent or alleviate skin issues as a result of amputation or the use of a prosthetic. Hair removal has also been shown to improve the emotional state of amputees.
Typically minor issues such as ingrown hairs, razor burn, or any kind of skin irritation can be exacerbated by a prosthetic covering. Skin issues such as itching and pain are also common at amputation sites, as the nerves in the area struggle to sort out the change. Hair removal has been shown to alleviate many of these symptoms and has also been shown to decrease sweating.
Sweating, while simply a nuisance for many people, can reduce traction between the skin and a prosthetic and allow for the prosthetic to slip. This is especially problematic for people who enjoy an active or athletic lifestyle. The use of botulinum toxins such as Botox is also an effective treatment for reducing sweat and prosthetic slippage.
Laser hair removal offers amputees an effective, permanent, and non-inflammatory solution to numerous issues associated with living with an amputation and prosthetic.

Over the course of the next several weeks, you will notice that the treated hair begins falling out, and your skin will start to become gradually smoother, with less and less hair as time passes.
Don’t forget to use a good sunscreen every time you go outside during the first month following treatment, in order to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and prevent possible reaction of the treated skin.
Your follow-up treatments should be scheduled about four to six weeks apart, and you may require several treatments to achieve sufficient hair removal from target areas. Once you achieve your aesthetic goal, follow-up treatments once or twice yearly will help you maintain fabulous results!
