Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures.  Getting rid of unwanted hair greatly enhances many cosmetic areas, and is very convenient.

During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which stops future hair growth. 

Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair.

Before laser hair removal, schedule a consultation with us. We will use this visit to:

  • Review your medical history, including medication use
  • Discuss risks, benefits and expectations, including what laser hair removal can and can’t do for you
  • Take photos to be used for before-and-after assessments and long-term reviews.

After our consultation, if we decided that laser hair removal is the right treatment for you, please be sure to follow the instructions below:

  • Stay out of the sun. A tan increases the risk of side effects, such as skin lightening. If you have a tan — either from sun exposure or sunless tanning products — wait until the tan fades completely before undergoing laser hair removal.
  • Avoid plucking, waxing and electrolysis. These hair removal methods can disturb the hair follicle and interfere with laser hair removal.

During the procedure
A hand-held laser instrument will be pressed to your skin. Before the procedure begins, a numbing cream will be applied to numb the area(s) that are to be treated.

Once the laser is activated,it will pass through your skin to the tiny sacs (follicles) where hair growth originates. The heat from the laser beam damages the hair follicles, which stops hair growth. Some discomfort in the skin is possible, and you’ll likely feel a sensation of cold from the cooling device or gel.

Treating a small area, such as the upper lip, might take only a few minutes. Treating a larger area, such as the back, might take several hours.

After the procedure
You might notice redness and swelling for the first few hours after laser hair removal.

To reduce any discomfort, apply ice to the treated area.

After laser hair removal, avoid sun exposure — both natural sunlight and tanning beds. When your skin has healed, use sunscreen whenever you’re in the sun.

You might also prepare yourself for possible hair shedding in the first few weeks after treatment. Don’t mistake this for hair regrowth.

Although laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. It typically takes several laser hair removal treatments to provide an extended hair-free period. Periodic maintenance treatments might be needed as well.
