Laser hair removal used to be only for light-skinned patients with dark hair. However, technology has continued to improve over the years and now patients of all skin types and hair types can enjoy permanent reduction and removal of unwanted hair on the body. This treatment targets the follicles and keeps them from growing hair. This can only be done on hair in the active growth phase of the hair growing cycle, so several treatments will need to be done to ensure patients are able to enjoy full removal if that is what they seek. Patients seeking reduction will benefit from a few treatments in our practice to thin out the hair in the area.
Laser hair removal is a comfortable procedure. Patients can have numbing cream applied to the treatment area before the laser is used to target the unwanted hair. Then, a special laser is used to target hair follicles. Some patients will hear a snapping sound as the light pulses onto the skin. However, the skin is completely safe from the laser and remains unharmed.
After laser hair removal, patients will notice a reduction in the hair in the treatment area. In fact, many men and women will see hair falling off throughout the day. These hairs will not return over time. Patients are to book several sessions with their dermatologist weeks apart to target all hair follicles during the growth cycles.
