“I’ve been getting laser hair removal treatments here for a few months now. I’m extremely happy and impressed with my results. I did 3 treatments several years ago at a different place in Bellevue and was less than thrilled after. I have fair skin with dark unwanted facial hair, which means I’m a perfect candidate for treatments. The staff is really friendly.

Seeing as how I had done laser hair removal before I had a lot of questions about what I was paying for this time. The staff gave me a detailed description of the previous laser used compared to theirs. It’s a step up and after one treatment I could tell the difference. Everyone responds differently to laser hair removal but you certainly get what you pay for. I’m really happy I gave it another shot and can’t wait to continue with other areas, it’s worth it!” *

“The laser hair removal and Botox was hands-down the best of three places I’ve been to in the Puget Sound area.” *
Demandforce (2017)

Using a true laser, the laser light is attracted to the melanin, or pigment, naturally found in each hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, cutting off the supply of nutrients, which can often prevent any future growth. Our hair removal laser emits a powerful beam of light that passes through the skin and targets many follicles at once, making this treatment very quick and effective.

Those with red, blonde, or gray hair are typically not good candidates for laser hair removal as there is not enough pigment to attract the laser’s heat, making treatment unreliable. To assist with the treatment, but a consultation is needed first. We also provide waxing services for those who are not good candidates for laser hair removal.

The difference between Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) for Laser Hair Removal

Not every form of light-based technology used for hair removal is the same. Knowing and understanding the difference is important in achieving long-term successful results. A true laser emits a single concentrated beam of light that is extremely focused onto one precise spot at a time, penetrating deeply down to the root, making it very powerful and accurate. Single beam which doesn’t allow penetration to go as deep as opposed to "penetration is shallower" Additionally IPL is not safe or effective on dark skin types. At Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center, even though we have an IPL, we use only a true laser for laser hair removal and leave the IPL for its best use, which is treating skin pigment, redness, vascular issues, and promoting collagen.

Treatments are virtually painless and will vary patient to patient. Patients describe a range of sensations during treatment from tingling to the snapping of a rubber band.

Client comfort is one of the top priorities at Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center, which is why our laser hair removal head has a continuous cooling mechanism that eases any patient discomfort. Numbing cream can be purchased at Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center and applied 60 minutes prior to coming in for treatment.

When you meet with our laser hair removal specialist for your consultation, we’ll address any concerns you may have. Individual results may vary.

The number of treatments is generally determined by the amount of hair, phase of hair growth, area of the body, skin color, hair color, and coarseness.

Generally, 6 to 8 treatments are recommended at 4 to 6 week intervals between treatments. Patients with the combination of lighter skin with darker hair typically are the best candidates.

Why are multiple treatments needed?

Our hair naturally grows in 3 different stages. All our hair is not in the same stage at the same time, so when an area is treated only a percentage of hair follicles will be affected. Therefore, to effectively reduce your unwanted hair, multiple treatments are necessary. Our hair naturally grows in 3 different stages.

After treatment, redness and some slight swelling may occur, typically lasting anywhere from 2 to 48 hours. These minor effects can also be improved by icing the area or by using an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream after treatment.

You can expect to see a gradual decrease in the hair thickness and in the amount of hair present. In addition, you may also see a decrease in stubble, rashes, and ingrown hairs.

“I can’t believe how much less hair I have after just one treatment! I’ve been dealing with embarrassing hair my whole life and it’s surreal that it might one day be all gone. Thank you for being so kind and helpful during my consultation and first visit. I felt well taken care of and the treatment I had done on my lip and chin was only 15 minutes (with 3 minutes under the laser). I am going to recommend your services to everyone I know! *
