What is Laser Hair Removal?

Unwanted body hair has met its match. Laser hair removal focuses a beam of light that inhibits the growth of new hair, giving you hairless skin that stays smooth for much longer than if you had shaved or waxed.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal uses light technology to penetrate hair follicles and damage the chromophores, which are responsible for pigmentation, and diminish hair growth over time. As the laser pulses, the bulb and hair shaft get super-heated. Safe and effective, laser hair removal is less painful than waxing and is non-invasive. Skin tone or type does not matter, nor does the texture or color of your hair, as there are a variety of laser wavelengths that can be utilized to get you the results you want.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Who doesn’t want a body that is smooth, hairless, and healthy? Of course, the benefits to laser hair removal do not end there. You can expect:

 

  • A quick, painless session
  • Minimal maintenance
  • Less ingrown hairs and razor bumps
  • Zero downtime after your sessions
  • Less money and time spent on at-home hair removal methods

What is Laser Hair Removal Like?

Curious about what to expect at a session? Several steps are involved with laser hair removal. When you arrive for your in-office appointment, you will be prepped for the procedure and given protective eyewear.

Your skilled technician may ask a few questions to zero-in on the necessary laser wavelength to ensure you get the maximum benefit from each session. Depending on the thickness and color of your hair, you may require several sessions to fully inhibit hair growth.

Once your session begins, the technician guides the concentrated beam of light over the area you are having treated. You might feel some stinging or burning, but most patients have very little discomfort.

Here are some tips to make your laser hair removal a success:

Pre-Treatment Tips

  • Avoid tanning beds and sun exposure prior to your appointment. Do not use self-tanning products either.
  • Avoid Retin-A, exfoliants, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid for 3 days prior to your appointment.
  • Discuss the medications you are currently on with the DrSkin team before scheduling, as some antibiotics and medications have to be out of your system prior to your treatment.
  • Shave the area you are having treated beforehand. Do not use hair removal products that remove or damage the follicle for 6 weeks before the session.

Post-Treatment Tips

  • After laser hair removal, your skin is going to be more sensitive to sun exposure, so be sure to wear at least SPF 30 when outside.
  • Shave between appointments.
  • Use an ice pack to comfort your skin.

When Do I See Results?

The first treatment usually results in a 10-25% decrease in hair growth and thickness. Two weeks after your first treatment, you will notice that your hair starts to thin and fall out.

Generally, you will need between 6-10 sessions to fully remove the hair from the treated area. Your hair color, thickness, and skin type and tone can alter the course of your treatment. Each session is scheduled about 4 weeks from the last if you are getting hair removed from your face. For the body, you need about 6 weeks in between sessions.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Laser hair removal may not be 100% permanent, it significantly reduces the amount of hair and how fast it grows back. If hair does return, it is going to be much thinner and lighter, making it less noticeable. Want to stay smooth forevermore? Consider maintenance treatments every 1-2 years.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Although laser hair removal is safe for most people, there are some side effects to expect post-treatment, including red patches of skin and some irritation. Concerned about the side effects? Our friendly team is willing to answer any of your questions and help put your mind at ease.

Who Benefits Most From Laser Hair Removal?

If you want less body hair and prefer to shave less often, then laser hair removal is for you. Individuals with thicker, darker hair and fair skin may see better results than people with thinner, lighter hair or darker skin. However, there are different wavelengths and lasers that can be used to adjust the treatment to meet your needs.

Who Wouldn’t Benefit?

Unfortunately, there are some who will not benefit from laser hair removal. You should avoid laser hair removal if you:

 

  • Are using acne treatments
  • Have certain infections or are prone to cold sores
  • Have raised scars
  • Have or had skin cancer
  • Are pregnant
