Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Laser hair removal is an effective and long-lasting alternative to traditional methods of hair removal, such as shaving, plucking, and waxing. Review the following information to learn more about laser hair removal.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal utilizes laser light to permanently reduce unwanted hair. The laser works by damaging the hair follicle and preventing future hair growth.
What areas can be treatment?

Laser hair removal can be used to eliminate unwanted area from virtually any area of the body, including the legs, arms, back, bikini area, stomach, chin, and upper lip.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Most people find that discomfort experienced during a laser hair removal session is minimal and comparable to the discomfort experienced during waxing. The sensation is similar to the feeling of a rubber band being snapped against the skin.
How many treatments will I need?

Because hair growth occurs in phases, patients will require multiple treatments to effectively reduce hair growth. Most patients will require four to six sessions to achieve optimal results. Treatments are typically spaced six to eight weeks apart.
Are they any side effects from laser hair removal?

The most common side effects associated with laser hair removal are redness and swelling. Most patients are able to return to work and other daily activities immediately following their laser hair removal treatment.
