Frequently Asked Questions: Laser Hair Removal

How does hair removal work?


Advances in medicine now make it possible to supplement surgical treatment with laser technology, leaving patients with minimal pain and scarring. With laser treatments, a high-energy beam of light transfers energy into select areas of tissue, treating damaged skin and preserving healthy tissue.

Hair removal is a popular non-surgical, non-invasive technique for permanent removal of unwanted hair. During laser hair-removal treatment, a low energy laser passes through the patient's skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. With each treatment, a percentage of the follicles are instantly and permanently disabled. No anesthesia is typically necessary.

What should I expect following a hair removal treatment?

You will experience very minimal, if any, discomfort and can return to normal activities immediately following the procedure. Sometimes patients experience localized, temporary skin redness or swelling following treatments.

You may need to use a specially-formulated skin care product following laser treatment for hair removal. You will also need to use sunscreen for treated areas during sun exposure.

Multiple laser treatments are typically required to achieve desired result.
