Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal is an ideal solution for patients who are tired of shaving, waxing, tweezing, threading, etc. During laser hair removal at SKIN & LASER AESTHETICS, the team uses a highly concentrated light. That light is beamed into hair follicles, where pigment absorbs the light, ultimately destroying the hair follicle. With this quick, precise laser, it usually takes just minutes to treat smaller areas and under an hour to do large-scale laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is effective on every area of the body, including the face, legs, underarms, bikini area, arms, feet, and more. The procedure is precise, so patients can target only the areas of hair they want removing while protecting desired hair (e.g. around the eyebrow).

Does laser hair removal work?

Absolutely. SKIN & LASER AESTHETICS uses top-tier laser technology to ensure that each patient’s treatment delivers maximal results. Patients leave each treatment with smooth, hair-free skin anywhere the laser was applied.*

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Yes! Laser hair removal is designed to permanently destroy the hair follicle, giving patients smooth skin for life. After laser hair removal, your hair growth will be so stunted that shaving, waxing, tweezing, and other hair removal techniques will no longer be necessary.

The number of treatments required to completely stop hair growth will depend on your skin, hair color and thickness, and other factors. The team at SKIN & LASER AESTHETICS can help you determine how many treatments may be right for you to achieve your desired results.

How do I get ready for laser hair removal?

There are two key steps you need to take to prepare for laser hair removal. First, you should avoid any type of plucking or waxing for six weeks prior to the treatment. These activities remove the hair’s root, which the laser aims to destroy. If the root is already missing, the laser becomes ineffective.

Secondly, you should minimize sun exposure. Skin that has been in the sun is less receptive to laser hair removal treatment. What’s more, sun exposure increases the likelihood of complications after the treatment.
