How does laser hair removal work?
Laser energy is targeted to the hair follicles, causing them to shut down. Hair growth slows and eventually stops with continued treatment.
How long does each treatment last?
The average treatment ranges from 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the size of the area. The amount of time per treatment also depends upon the reaction of the skin to treatment and the patient’s sensitivity.
Does it hurt?
Some patients experience a sensation like warm pinpricks, or a rubber band being snapped on the skin, during treatment. For larger areas or patients who are particularly sensitive, we can use inhaled nitrous oxide to address discomfort.
How many treatments will I need?
One of the most important things about successful laser hair removal is consistency of treatment! We typically tell patients to expect between 6 and 10 treatments to see the results they want. Additionally, you might need a touch-up every year or two to keep skin smooth and hair-free.
Is there downtime, or things I should do or not do after treatment?
Sometimes patients have mild redness or swelling after a laser hair removal treatment. You can feel free to get right back to your daily activities after a treatment session. However, you need to be extra careful about avoiding sun exposure! It’s absolutely essential to cover up with a hat, long sleeves, or pants, and be generous with the sunscreen after laser hair removal.
