Why Choose Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is quickly becoming one of the most sought after aesthetic treatments available today. This is probably because laser hair removal provides patients with a long-term solution to one of the most frustrating aesthetic problems that people face — unwanted hair. And unlike waxing and chemical hair removers that can have a negative impact on your skin’s long-term health, laser hair removal only affects the hair follicles themselves, protecting the uppermost layers of the skin from long-term irritation. This treatment is provided under the supervision of one of our practice’s leading physicians, Lynette Stewart, MD, FACOG, so you can take comfort knowing you’re under the care of a skilled, experienced doctor.
How Does it Work?
During a laser hair removal treatment, laser energy is directed at the patient’s desired treatment area. The laser energy is of a specific wavelength that is absorbed exclusively by the hair follicles. As this laser energy is absorbed by the follicles, they begin to heat up and eventually rupture. Once a hair follicle ruptures, it is unable to produce additional hair in the future.
Unfortunately, not all of the hair follicles in a treatment area, no matter how small, can be targeted during a single laser hair removal treatment. Because of this, multiple sessions are required to see more permanent, long-term results.
What Areas can it be Used to Treat?
Laser hair removal can be used to treat nearly any area of the body, including the:
- Bikini line
- Upper lip
What can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
The amount of time that each laser hair removal treatment takes depends on both the size and amount of hair in the treatment area. Because the procedure can be uncomfortable, it’s important for patients to take special precautions to decrease their chances of feeling more pain than necessary. Women should avoid undergoing treatment during menstruation. Both male and female patients should avoid consuming caffeine before undergoing a laser hair removal treatment. Our practice can provide patients with a topical numbing cream before treatment begins that can help improve comfort during the procedure.
