Laser hair removal provides permanent hair reduction for all skin types. The hair removal process can target any area of the body. The pain reported is minimal and lasts seconds. A majority of patients report no downtime, experiencing only a small amount of redness at the treatment site. Laser hair removal uses targeted light, which travels down the shaft of the hair and into the follicle. The lasers heat destroys the hair follicle and prevents regrowth.
On average, we recommend between 6 to 9 sessions spaced about four weeks apart for maximum results. Patients see results within the first session. Yearly touch-ups are recommended to maintain complete hair reduction. We recommended patients have hair stubble before treatment – allowing the pigment of the hair to remain visible for treatment.
