How does laser hair removal work?
Which areas of the body can benefit from laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can be performed safely on the following areas:
- Along the Bikini Line
Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?
Men and women of all skin types can benefit from laser hair removal treatments. Women often seek treatment to remove hair from their underarms, bikini lines, and legs, while men most often desire hair removal from their backs and necks. When laser hair removal was initially introduced, it was originally intended for patients with light skin and dark hair. Thanks to more recently developed technologies, that’s not the case anymore. We are able to safely and effectively treat patients of all skin types, tones, and hair colors now.
How many treatments will I need for best results?
Since your hair follicles are at different stages of growth at any given time, it generally takes multiple sessions to experience the results you desire. A series of treatments must be scheduled to ensure every hair gets exposed to the laser. Follow-up treatment sessions are typically scheduled about four to six weeks apart until hair stops growing completely.
How should I prepare for laser hair removal?
In preparation for laser hair removal treatment, we recommend you limit any plucking or waxing for about six weeks before your appointment. That’s because the laser targets pigment in the roots of the hair, so these actions may cause treatment to be ineffective as there won’t be any roots to treat. Also, you’ll want to avoid sun exposure for six weeks prior to your treatment. The effects the sun’s rays have on the skin may interfere with the laser’s effectiveness and can exacerbate any potential side effects.
Is laser hair removal painful?
Laser hair removal isn’t considered painful by most patients, but the treatment area will likely feel tender and appear red (like a mild sunburn) for approximately 24-48 hours after your session. Once we’re done treating the hair, we’ll quickly apply ice packs to maximize your comfort. Afterwards, you’ll want to avoid any prolonged sun exposure for a few weeks following treatment. Most patients resume their daily activities when treatment is complete.
What results can I expect with laser hair removal?
It typically takes about two to three weeks after your first session to notice a difference in the hair growth. Full results usually occur after eight to twelve treatments. Since every situation is different, we’ll be sure to go over all the details of what you can expect during your consultation.
