Laser Hair Removal

Trade Shaving and Waxing for Long-Term Results in Fruitland, Idaho

Still wasting your time shaving? The MedSpa by CT Derm team offers a convenient alternative in the form of laser hair removal. Our Fruitland, Idaho, practice utilizes the state-of-the-art Vectus by Cynosure—an extremely effective technology that produces energy selectively absorbed by pigmented cells in the hair follicle.

As the hair bulb cells absorb light energy, they produce heat, which damages them, diminishing the follicle's ability to grow hair. Future hair growth is also diminished after a laser hair removal treatment. Any re-growth is usually finer and lighter, making it more difficult to see. Multiple treatments are needed to reduce hair growth for prolonged time periods.

Since the light energy in laser hair removal targets darker-pigmented cells, avoid tanning, intentional or otherwise, in the days before your appointment. Because contrast is critical for laser hair removal, we can't treat hair that is light blonde, white, gray, or light red.

How to Prepare for a Laser Hair Removal Session

We recommend that you obtain Epionce Medical Barrier Cream and Epionce Ultra Shield Lotion SPF 50 in advance of your visit, so that you have it on hand for your post-treatment at-home care.

The Laser Hair Removal Treatment

What to Expect Prior to Treatment

Laser hair removal

We request that you shave the area that is to be treated as close to your laser hair removal treatment time as possible. Make sure to cleanse the region well, but avoid applying any lotions, creams, and deodorant to the area. Please dress with exposing the treatment area in mind.

What to Expect During Treatment

The energy from the laser hair removal device will be delivered in pulses. Each pulse may feel like a "warm pinch." The intensity of the sensation will depend on how many hairs are in the area being treated and the amount of laser light dose. Many patients say they find the feeling uncomfortable, but tolerable.

Only active hair follicles are affected with each pulse of the laser. The settings on the laser are adjustable to maximize results while minimizing side effects, but no single session will be able to target all follicles in the treatment area. Ideal results are typically achieved with eight or more treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart to allow new follicles to move into the active phase.

What to Expect After Treatment

If the treated area feels hot once the session is over, the esthetician will apply cold compresses as needed. You will also get an application of Epionce Medical Barrier Cream, followed by Epionce Ultra Shield Lotion SPF 50. You can resume your normal activities after your laser hair removal treatment, but be aware that you should avoid excessive sun exposure for 24 hours—even with the sunscreen on. Your skin may appear red, have a warm sensation, or both for a few hours after your treatment.

Post-Laser Hair Removal At-Home Care

We recommend that you apply Epionce Medical Barrier Cream for the first one to three days after your laser hair removal treatment. If the targeted area can be exposed to the sun, you will want to apply Epionce Ultra Shield Lotion SPF 50 in two layers, with 30 minutes in between layers, before going out. For treated areas that are typically covered by clothing, loose fabric may be more comfortable for the few days after a laser hair removal session.

What You Should Know

Your skin may shed hair for up to a month after a laser hair removal session. Note that it may be uncomfortable to expose the treated areas to heat for the first 24 to 36 hours.

Decades of research went into the physician-strength, clinically tested skincare line, which uses botanical ingredients to boost the skin barrier, improve radiance, and more.

Here is What our Patients Think

All of the interaction with the staff, technicians and doctors have been professional and friendly. The staff is efficient, the wait times are minimal, and the care is exceptional. I highly recommend CTDerm.

Wade W. (Patient since 2019)

I have known from a distance that Dr. Thornfeldt and his staff were very good. But in just one visit, I realize that I had underestimated how good they are. Our son and daughter's skin issues, as well as my own, were not noticed by our dermatologist where we live. It was fully worth the trip from Florida.

Robert H. (patient since 2016)

My experience with Dr. Thornfeldt and his staff has been nothing but pleasurable. The staff are friendly and helpful going the extra mile to meet the patients needs. Dr. Thornfeldt is dedicated to the care of his patients, actively listening and responding as he seeks to see the bigger picture.

Dezra. R (patient since 2019)

The staff at CT Derm is very friendly and helpful. I found the visit very comfortable. Dr. Thornfeldt is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and understanding. I am a former patient of his from when he had an office in Nampa, but due to improved skin issues and major life changes, -- a divorce and move, I didn't follow him to his Fruitland office. After over 12 years, and new skin problems, I knew it was time make the drive. I trust him completely and appreciate his experience and expertise.
