How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal is a gentle process. A high energy beam of light goes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. Heat generated by the laser will destroy the hair follicles which ultimately limit future hair growth in the treated area.

Laser Hair Removal 

Laser hair removal treatment sessions vary from each individual depending on the patient’s age, gender, and hormonal balance. Each session can last for a few minutes to a few hours depending on the area being treated. However, it is necessary to have a course of treatments to achieve the optimal long term benefits as hair grows in different cycles. Laser hair removal can be done on almost every part of the body. Nevertheless the common areas which are generally treated are the underarms, tummy line, arms, necks, legs and even on the upper lip.

 Should I shave before the treatment? 

Shaving the day before or just prior to treatment is recommended and you may shave again twenty-four hours after treatment unless your provider tells you otherwise.


Is it safe?

How many treatments will I need? 

Typically, 4 to 6 treatments is adequate to provide permanent hair reduction. However, after a one-on-one consultation, your provider may determine that based on the density of your hair, hair color and skin color, you may require additional treatment. Your provider will advise you. It’s not unusual to require a touch-up treatment two years after completing laser hair removal treatments.


Will my hair ever grow back? 

Actively growing hairs that are treated should not grow back. Once a hair follicle is damaged it cannot grow hair. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for patients to have a touch-up two years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes.


Why do I need 4 – 6 treatments? 

Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (active hair growth) Catagen (regression) Telogen (resting, not growing) Laser hair removal only affects the Anagen stage, (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately twenty-five-percent of hair is removed with each treatment. After 4 to 6 treatments, the area should be free from hair.
