After just a few treatments, a person may be able to eliminate the need to constantly shave, wax or epilate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is appropriate for most people who are bothered or embarrassed by unwanted hair. The treatment can be administered on nearly any area of the body, including the chin, upper lip, underarms and legs. While not right for everyone, modern laser hair removal is effective on many different skin types.

What should I expect during a laser hair removal session?

Laser hair removal is performed from the comfort of our office. You will wear protective eyewear, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to your skin prior to the procedure. A concentrated laser beam will be guided over the treatment area, targeting the dark pigment of each hair and killing the follicle beneath. Most people experience a noticeable reduction in the amount of hair re-growth after a single treatment, though additional treatments will be necessary to achieve optimal results.

How long will it take to permanently remove all unwanted hair?

We typically recommend at least 6 laser hair removal sessions to achieve a significant hair reduction. Results vary from person to person, but most candidates for laser hair removal will enjoy hair that becomes increasingly lighter and finer as the treatments progress. Additional sessions may be necessary on occasion to maintain long-term results.

Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses laser technology to reduce or permanently remove unwanted hair from various parts of the body. It offers a long-term solution for individuals who are tired of dealing with traditional hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, or plucking.

During a laser hair removal session, a trained professional uses a handheld laser device to target the hair follicles. The laser emits a concentrated beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles. This absorption of light converts into heat, damaging the follicles and inhibiting future hair growth.

It’s important to note that laser hair removal works best on individuals with dark hair and lighter skin tones. However, advancements in technology have made it possible to treat a broader range of skin and hair colors.

The number of sessions required for optimal results can vary depending on factors such as the area being treated, the color and thickness of the hair, and individual response to the treatment. Multiple sessions are usually necessary to target hair in different growth phases and achieve the desired outcome.

Laser hair removal is generally considered safe when performed by a trained professional. Some individuals may experience temporary side effects such as redness, swelling, or mild discomfort in the treated area, but these usually subside within a few hours or days.

It’s crucial to choose a reputable clinic or provider for laser hair removal and to follow their pre and post-treatment instructions carefully. This may include avoiding sun exposure, discontinuing other hair removal methods before the procedure, and keeping the treated area clean and moisturized afterward.

While laser hair removal can significantly reduce hair growth, it may not guarantee permanent hair removal. Maintenance sessions may be required in the future to address any regrowth or new hair follicles.

If you’re considering laser hair removal, I recommend consulting with a qualified professional who can assess your unique situation and guide you through the process, addressing any concerns or questions you may have.
