What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a cutting-edge cosmetic treatment designed to drastically reduce unwanted hair. The technique harnesses the power of concentrated light to target and neutralize hair follicles, preventing future growth. During the treatment, a specialized laser emits pulses of light that are absorbed by the pigment in the hair. This energy transforms into heat, effectively disabling the hair follicle without harming the surrounding skin.
Patients can expect a series of treatments, each lasting from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated. Throughout the procedure, comfort is maintained, with many describing the sensation as a light snap or flick against the skin. Laser hair removal can be used to reduce hair on almost any area of the body, including:
- The upper lip
- Bikini line
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Precision With Hair Removal
The laser specifically targets hair follicles, ensuring that the surrounding skin remains untouched. This precision ensures that only unwanted hair is treated, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
Unlike traditional methods, laser hair removal provides results that last. Over time, treated hairs become finer and less noticeable, leading to extended periods of smooth skin.
Speed and Efficiency
Each laser pulse lasts a fraction of a second and treats multiple hairs simultaneously. This means large areas, like the legs or back, can be treated in less time than you might expect.
Reduced Ingrown Hairs
By eliminating hair at the root, laser removal reduces the occurrence of painful ingrown hairs.
The procedure is generally well-tolerated and produces only mild discomfort, often likened to the snap of a rubber band.
Return to your daily activities immediately after treatment – no recovery time is needed.
Less Skin Irritation
Say goodbye to razor burns and skin irritation caused by constant shaving.
Customized Treatment Plans
Based on skin type and hair color, treatments can be tailored to achieve the best results for each individual.
Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal
How does laser hair removal work?
There are two key components to effective laser hair removal. For one, laser hair removal focuses laser energy on the melanin or pigment in the root of your hair. If your hair root is blonde, gray, or white, the laser will be unable to detect and disable the follicle. For two, hair grows in stages. Since laser hair removal only works on active hair follicles, it typically takes multiple treatments to catch every hair follicle in its active phase.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal reaction feels like a rubber band snapping against your skin while the laser is treating your targeted area. This sensation is well tolerated and dissipates as soon as the light stops.
What are the side effects of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can cause temporary redness or swelling, which subsides on its own in the hours following treatment.
Is there any downtime with laser hair removal?
There is little to no downtime with laser hair removal. You should be able to resume your regular schedule immediately following your treatment.
What do I need to do before my laser hair removal treatment?
Stop shaving, plucking, waxing, or electrolysis for at least a month before your treatment. Also avoid sun exposure, since increased melanin in your skin can raise your risk for adverse side effects. Be sure to avoid sun exposure after your treatment as well to avoid a reaction.
How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?
The number of treatments you need depends on a number of factors, including your goals and the color and quantity of your hair. We typically see optimal benefits after a series of 6 to 8 treatments spaced 8 to 10 weeks apart. Darker skin types may need a longer duration of treatment, due to energy adjustments needed to avoid damage to the skin. We can help you devise your optimal treatment plan during your personal consultation.
