Achieve Smooth & Silky Skin

Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated beams of light to target hair follicles and inhibit their ability to grow new hair. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, damaging it and preventing further growth. Unlike other hair removal methods, laser hair removal provides long-lasting results, leaving the skin smooth and hair-free. We use the cutting-edge Motus AZ+ laser at Willow Medical Aesthetics to ensure safe and effective hair removal for all skin types.

The Science Behind Laser Hair Removal

The scientific principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis. Laser hair removal in LaGrange involves using a laser that emits a specific wavelength of light that targets the melanin pigment in the hair shaft. As the pigment absorbs light energy, it is converted into heat, which damages the hair follicle and inhibits its ability to produce new hair. The laser targets only the hair follicle while leaving the surrounding skin tissue unharmed. Over time, your hair grows thinner and sparser with each session.

Advantages of Laser Hair Removal:

  • Long-lasting results compared to other hair removal methods
  • Targets hair at the root, preventing regrowth
  • Precision targeting with minimal damage to surrounding skin
  • Safe and effective on all skin types
  • Can be used on various areas of the body, including sensitive areas
  • Minimal discomfort during treatment
  • No downtime required, can resume regular activities immediately
  • Reduction in ingrown hairs

The 3-Stage Hair Growth Cycle

Understanding the three-stage hair growth cycle is important for laser hair removal. The anagen phase is the active growth phase, where the hair follicle is actively producing hair. The catagen phase is a transitional phase where the hair follicle begins to shrink and detach from the hair shaft. The telogen phase is the resting phase, where the hair follicle is inactive, and the hair is shed. Laser hair removal in LaGrange is most effective during the anagen phase when the hair follicle is actively producing hair.

Why You Need Multiple Sessions

Multiple sessions are necessary for laser hair removal because hair grows in cycles, and not all hairs are in the active growth phase simultaneously. Since laser hair removal only targets hairs in the anagen phase, multiple treatments are required to target all hairs during different stages of the hair growth cycle.

Typically, 4-6 treatments spaced several weeks apart are needed for optimal results. Each session will result in a significant reduction of hair.

Laser Hair Removal vs. Waxing & Shaving

Laser hair removal offers several advantages over traditional hair removal methods like waxing and shaving. While waxing and shaving only provide temporary hair removal, laser hair removal offers long-lasting results by targeting hair at the root and preventing regrowth. Additionally, laser hair removal is safe and effective on all skin types and can be used on sensitive areas of the body. Unlike waxing, there is no discomfort during laser hair removal in LaGrange.

Candidates for Laser Hair Removal:

  • Have unwanted hair on various parts of the body
  • Want long-lasting hair reduction
  • Want to save time and money on regular hair removal methods
  • Experience ingrown hairs, razor burn, or skin irritations from shaving or waxing
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Do not have any skin infections or active skin conditions
  • Are willing to commit to multiple sessions for optimal results

Your Laser Hair Removal Session

Before your laser hair removal session at Willow Medical Aesthetics, we assess your skin type and determine the best treatment plan. We use the Motus AZ+ laser system during the session to target hair follicles in the treatment area. The laser emits a gentle pulse of light, which may cause a slight warming or tingling sensation. Each session takes 15-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area for laser hair removal in LaGrange.

Side Effects

While laser hair removal is generally safe, there may be some side effects. These can include redness, swelling, and mild discomfort in the treatment area. In rare cases, blistering or changes in skin pigmentation may occur. These side effects are temporary and resolve naturally.


There is no downtime required after a laser hair removal session. You can resume your regular activities immediately. However, it is important to avoid direct sun exposure and apply sunscreen to the treated area. You may experience mild redness or swelling, which should resolve within a few hours.


Results from laser hair removal are not immediate and may take several sessions to achieve the desired level of hair reduction. Typically, patients will see a significant reduction in hair growth after the first treatment. However, you may need 4 to 6 treatments spaced a few weeks apart for optimal results.


Laser hair removal offers long-lasting results compared to other hair removal methods. Once removed, the destroyed hair follicles can’t regrow hair. However, maintenance sessions may be necessary once or twice a year to target hair follicles that may have been missed.
