Laser Hair Removal

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Both men and women often have excess hair on their bodies that can be unattractive and embarrassing. Most temporary methods such as waxing, shaving, tweezing, and applying depilatory creams to get rid of the unwanted hair can be time-consuming and very painful. Laser hair removal is a great way to permanently eliminate unsightly and embarrassing hair on the back, chest, legs, underarms, hands, feet, stomach, face, bikini area, and other areas on the body. During the laser hair removal procedure the laser is focused on hair follicles in places where hair is to be removed. The power, pulse frequency, and size of the laser’s beam are adjusted for the comfort of the patient.

Laser Hair Removal Process

Most patients experience little to no discomfort during laser hair removal treatment while others describe the sensation as tingling or “prickly,” similar to the light snap of a rubber band against the skin. Patients may experience some redness following treatment; it might feel like sunburn which should go away in a couple hours. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after their scheduled laser hair removal treatment. Each patient has his or her own level of skin sensitivity and pain threshold. Different areas on the body are also more sensitive than others.

Laser Hair Removal Treatment Duration

The duration of treatment can last up to an hour or be as short as ten minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated, and there is no downtime after the procedure. It is important to remember that there are three phases of hair growth – Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. Only hairs in the active Anagen growth stage can be successfully treated. Not all hairs are in the same phase at the same time. You may need to be treated about 5-6 times at approximately 4 to 6 weeks intervals.
