What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-intrusive hair removal treatment that uses lasers to prevent hair growth at the root. It uses lasers to damage hair follicles which stops hair regrowth. The procedure provides permanent and long-lasting results that last longer than waxing or shaving. Laser hair removal is safe to perform on the full body or specific areas such as the upper lip, face, chin, bikini area, and more. 

Is laser hair removal safe?

An FDA-approved procedure, laser hair removal is safe to perform on humans. There are certified and trained providers who use skin-safe lasers. During the procedure, you might need to wear protective eyewear to safeguard your eyes from the laser. 

While most people don’t experience any side effects, people with sensitive skin might experience some temporary redness or irritation.

What areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal?

From specific areas such as the face, upper lip, chest, back, legs, and hands, laser hair removal can be done on the full body. 

How many treatments are required?

Laser hair removal is not a one-session treatment. You will need to take multiple sessions depending on your hair type and the area to achieve the best hair removal results. These sessions are spaced apart from each other over a period of weeks. You can talk to your treatment provider to develop a plan best suited for you. 

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal provides long-term results that last longer than temporary solutions such as waxing and shaving. Laser hair removal is not considered a permanent solution because, over a period of time, damaged hair follicles can repair and regrow hair. Occasional touch-up laser treatments easily solve this to stop the growth of hair in those areas. These touch-up treatments are not required as frequently and are less intense than your first round of full treatments. 

Is laser hair removal effective for all skin types and hair colors?

Yes, advancements in laser hair removal treatments have made it highly effective for people of all skin colors and hair colors. Earlier, technology limitations made laser treatment less effective for people with dark skin. Now, a different type of laser is available for dark skin colors to help prevent discoloration and hyperpigmentation. 

How can I prepare for a laser hair removal appointment? 

A few things you can do to get ready for your first appointment are: 

  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least two weeks before your hair removal treatment. 
  • Apply plenty of sunscreen when you are outside. Sun exposure can make your skin more sensitive. 
  • Avoid waxing or plucking your hair for at least four weeks before your treatment. You can shave your hair as it doesn’t damage your hair follicles.
  • If you have any questions or concerns, ask your treatment provider before your first appointment.
