Are You Ready to Remove Unwanted Body Hair?

Laser hair removal has been a safe and effective treatment for men and women for years. A small handheld device is used to target each hair follicle with a highly concentrated beam of light energy. The heat generated from the laser pulses is delivered with precision to ensure the surrounding skin is not affected. Once heated, the hair follicle can no longer produce hair, leaving you with smooth, silky skin.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Let’s face it: everyone has some hair where they don’t want it. Laser hair removal is a great option whether it’s on your back, bikini area, underarms, chest, or the upper lip or chin. Available for both men and women, laser hair removal is an effective way to remove growing in less desirable areas. However, lasers are attracted to pigment and work best on dark colored hair. Patients with light colored hair including gray, light blonde and/or light red are not great candidates for laser hair removal. Coarse hair responds better to the laser than thin, fine hair.

How Many Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?

Your hair grows in cycles. This means you will need to have a few laser hair removal sessions to ensure every hair follicle has been treated. Typically, this means spacing your sessions about 8 to 10 weeks apart. To achieve maximum results, you will need in the range of five to ten treatments.

Is the Procedure Difficult?

Laser hair removal can be, at times, uncomfortable because the laser feels like a slight pinching or a snapping sensation. After your treatment, skin may be slightly sensitive, as if you have a light sunburn. Moisturizers and a cool compress can help with any lingering discomfort. Generally, the recovery is easy to experience.
