Xeo Q & A

What is xeo?

Xeo is an advanced laser system that uses laser energy to destroy hair follicles and stop unwanted hair from growing. The xeo laser is equipped with varying wavelengths of energy, making it safe to use on all skin types, including light, tanned, and dark skin tones.

The aesthetic experts at Pineapple Health can use the xeo laser to remove hair from almost any area of your body, including your:

  • Face
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Legs
  • Bikini area

The laser is gentle and has special attachments to take care of small and large areas quickly and with minimal discomfort.

How does xeo remove hair?

The xeo laser energy targets the hair follicle under your skin and destroys it, preventing further growth. In order to get the most effective results, you need to have some hair growth in the follicle, which means you may need to refrain from plucking, shaving, or waxing for a period of time before coming in for treatment.

What can I expect during laser hair removal?

During laser hair removal, your aesthetic specialist places the laser wand over your skin, and the light energy zaps your hair follicle. The xeo laser is equipped with a device to reduce discomfort, but you may feel a snap sensation as the laser works over your skin. If you’re sensitive to pain, be sure to let your specialist know so they can take extra precautions.

Treatment time varies depending on the area being treated. It may only take a few minutes to remove the unwanted hair from your upper lip, but it can take an hour or more for removal of back hair.

Due to the hair growth cycle, you may need a series of treatments to get the best results. Your specialist at Pineapple Health develops a treatment plan for you before you get started so you know what to expect. In general, you may need two to six treatments set at one- to four-month intervals.

Is the hair gone for good?

Once the hair follicle is destroyed, hair won’t grow back. But new hair follicles may develop, and you may continue to have small amounts of very fine hair appear in the treatment area. To maintain your hair-free look, the aesthetic specialists recommend you come in as needed for additional treatments.
