Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. The procedure itself involves using a highly concentrated light beam to destroy unwanted hair on your body.
Using concentrated energy, laser therapy directly targets your unwanted hair follicles. When these pulses of light are released, the pigment in your hair follicles reacts by absorbing the light, ultimately destroying them, and hindering hair growth.
How can I benefit from laser hair removal?
Laser therapy can help remove hair on almost any part of your body, but it is most effective in treating your:
- Bikini line
It is especially effective in eradicating dark, thick, coarse hair without damaging the surrounding skin. Laser hair removal is an extremely precise treatment and can dramatically reduce the amount of unwanted hair on your body. For those tired of shaving, razor burn, and painful tweezing, laser hair removal is a fast, convenient solution to get rid of unwanted hair.
What can I expect from laser hair removal?
Once you decide on laser hair removal, it’s important to limit waxing and tweezing until your first appointment. This helps Dr. Soleymani target your hair roots — which are temporarily removed during waxing and plucking — eliminating hair from the inside out to prevent future growth.
To ensure the treatments are as effective as possible, avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after you begin the laser hair removal process, as the sun reduces your chances of completely eliminating your unwanted hair.
If your unwanted hair is still relatively long, Dr. Soleymani will trim it down to a few millimeters before adjusting the laser to suit the thickness, darkness, and location of the hair you want treated.
Next, your skin must be coated in a cooling gel to help the light beam effectively penetrate your skin. Over the next several minutes, pulses of light will target your hair follicles, gradually eliminating them. Many patients describe laser hair removal as feeling like the slight snap of a rubber band against your skin.
While you may see immediate results following your very first session, laser hair removal typically takes several treatments before you see your desired results. To learn more about this procedure, call Dermio Dermatology or schedule a consultation today.
