How does laser hair removal work?
This aesthetic treatment uses targeted laser energy to disable hair follicles and prevent any future hair growth. Laser hair removal targets hair follicles that are in the active growth phase and not all hair follicles in a given area grow at the same rate, so multiple treatment sessions are required to correctly treat one area.
Common treatment areas:
- Bikini area
How many treatments will I need?
We typically recommend a series of at least six to eight treatments spaced approximately four to six weeks apart. The number of laser hair removal treatments needed to achieve optimal results can vary from patient to patient depending on the area being treated, thickness of the hair, and size of the treatment area. Some patients may need additional maintenance treatments to maintain the results of their treatment.
What are the potential side effects?
Laser treatments can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so we recommend patients avoid excessive sun exposure following a laser hair removal treatment and use additional sun protection if planning to spend time outdoors. Some patients may experience redness or swelling in the treated area after a treatment session. These are temporary side effects and generally subside within a week of a laser hair removal treatment.
Am I a candidate?
Laser hair removal is an option for men and women of all skin types who are interested in a long term reduction of unwanted body hair. This treatment is not effective for patients with white, gray, red, or blonde hair because of the lack of melanin in the hair follicles. The melanin in the hair is what attracts the laser energy that disables the hair follicle, so without the presence of melanin, the laser is unable to detect the follicles. During your consultation, we will review your specific hair color and determine if laser hair removal will be an effective treatment for you.
