What is Laser Hair Removal?

Lasers work by targeting the individual hair follicles and damaging them so that they cannot regrow hair. The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser energy, so the treatment is most effective for those with high-contrast coloring, such as light skin and dark hair. However, today’s advanced laser technology is effective for those with darker skin tones as well. Because hair grows in cycles, patients may need several sessions in order to achieve their ideal hair removal results.

Who is a Candidate?

Thanks to recent advances in laser technology, most men and women are now good candidates for laser hair removal, although the treatment is most effective for those with lighter skin and darker hair. During your private consultation, our team will assess your skin and select the best laser settings and devices for your unique needs.

How is the Procedure Performed?

During laser hair removal, a handheld device is pressed to the skin. The potent beam of laser energy targets the pigment in the hair follicles, destroying them at the roots. Since there is contrast between the skin and the hair color, the laser focuses on the hairs and does not disturb the surrounding skin cells. Since the hair grows in phases (anagen, catagen, telogen, and exogen) and lasers treat only the hairs in the active growth stage, complete hair removal may require 2-6 visits.

What Can I Expect After My Laser Hair Removal Session?

Laser hair removal comes with little downtime and mild side effects. Patients may experience minor redness and swelling for a few hours. Applying an ice pack to the skin can help alleviate any discomfort. After your session, it is wise to avoid direct sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions for each patient.
