What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Hair removal with a laser has become one of the most popular elective treatments in the United States. It’s a convenient option for the long-term removal of hair follicles on the body and face. This procedure frequently leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother and produces great, lasting results compared to other common options.

What to Expect Before And During Laser Hair Removal

On the day of your appointment, you will relax in a private treatment room as the needed areas of your skin are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and moisturizers. During the procedure, a member of our team will smooth out the skin to create a direct pathway between the hair follicle root and the laser. The energy from the laser will focus on and disable the follicle, preventing the hair from growing again. Usually, you will need 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to achieve your best results. Your sessions are spaced out in order to give the affected areas time to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase of growth to cycle into the phase of active growth so they can be treated.

While the treatment is mostly gentle in nature, your skin may look like it has a mild sunburn due to the use of lasers. When you leave our office, you are free to go back to your daily activities, but you need to refrain from heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for a period of a day to let the treated areas heal.
