The 4-1-1 on Laser Hair Removal

The treatment, Laser Hair Removal, permant hair reduction is available for all skin types, including light and dark skin. Your provider will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.

  • How does it work? 
  • Light is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissue, so there is minimal risk.
  • How long does it take?
  • Permanent hair reduction treatments take just minutes for small areas and about a half hour for larger areas.
  • How many treatments will I need?
  • Several treatment sessions are recommended for the best aesthetic outcome. Permanent hair reduction technology can only affect hair in active phases of growth so several treatments are needed to affect all your unwanted hair. You do not need to let hair grow out between treatment sessions.
  • What will the treatment feel like?
  • Most people feel only a slight, momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure.
  • Are there any side effects?
  • Typically, most people experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling, immediately following the treatment. This usually lasts two to 24 hours. Ask your provider to discuss other possible side effects and the necessary post-treatment care with you.
