Ready to toss all those razors and cancel yet another time-consuming waxing appointment? Thankfully a procedure exists that’s virtually pain-free and results in long-lasting silky-smooth, hair-free skin.
Laser hair removal is the answer to all your unwanted hair needs! Using the latest technology, the laser will successfully and quickly remove unwanted hair without pain.
Will Laser Hair Removal Work for Me?
Individuals with light skin and dark hair are the best candidates for this procedure. The technology will not work on blond hair.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
One of the most common cosmetic procedures, laser hair removal works by targeting the follicle with a highly concentrated light, heating the pigment with the laser and then killing the hair at the root. The lasers can target dark coarse hairs without damaging the surrounding skin. This technique slows the further growth of the hairs in that area.
Laser hair removal patients should expect to see an 80 percent reduction in hair growth after multiple sessions.
How Long Does the Procedure Take and How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
Several sessions are required for effective and long-lasting hair removal. It can take as little as 4 to 6 treatments, spread over 3 to 8 weeks, to remove all the hair. Each so-called pulse of the laser takes less than a second and targets multiple hairs at once. Expect to spend less than a minute lasering small areas, such as the chin or lip, versus larger areas, such as the legs or chest, which can take an hour.
- Women may need 7 to 9 sessions
- Men may need 9 to 11 sessions
- Easy maintenance: Once sessions are completed, follow-up treatments are only necessary 1 to 2 times a year
Where Can Hair Be Removed?
Laser hair removal can be completed on the following areas:
*Before removing hair from the face, the patient’s skin must be evaluated to ensure there are no issues.
For women, laser removal is not available for the upper arms and upper back because that area may react to the process by growing more hair.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Some patients experience a little redness and swelling at the removal sites. Make sure to wear a high SPF when outdoors to minimize any complications.
