Laser Hair Removal
Painful razor burn, monthly waxing trips, and unwanted facial hair are all consequences of temporary hair removal solutions. Laser hair removal provides a permanent solution to the constant problem of unwanted body hair.
Our lasers target the hair follicles, destroying them, and preventing future hair growth. For this reason, we are FDA approved to promise permanent hair reduction for all skin tones.
What Should I Expect After Laser Hair Removal?
You will likely see the results immediately after treatment. The results vary from patient to patient. The color and thickness of your hair, area treated, type of laser used, and color of your skin all affect the results. You can expect a 10% to 25% reduction in hair after the first treatment.
To remove the hair, most patients need 2 to 6 laser treatments. After finishing the treatments, most patients do not see any hair on the treated skin for several months or even years. When the hair regrows, there tends to be less of it. The hairs also tend to be finer and lighter in color.
Most patients remain hair free for months or even years. When some of the hair regrows, it will likely be less noticeable. To keep the area free of hair, a patient may need a maintenance laser treatment, as needed.
The most common side effects of laser hair removal are minor and last 1 to 3 days. You may see some redness and swelling after treatment. This often looks like a mild sunburn. Applying a cool compress can help reduce your discomfort.
To avoid possible side effects, all patients need to protect their skin from the sun. After laser hair removal, we recommend:
- Avoiding direct sunlight from hitting your treated skin.
- Do not use a tanning bed, sun lamp, or any other indoor tanning equipment.
- Follow your providers after-care instructions.
Laser hair removal generally does not require downtime. Immediately after having laser hair removal, your treated skin will be red and swollen. Despite this, most people return to their everyday activities.
Most patients can have laser hair removal once every 4 to 6 weeks.
