What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a technique to remove excess, unwanted hair using laser treatments. Once complete, the hair removal may be long-lasting allowing patients to forgo repeat treatments to temporarily remove unwanted hair.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal has become very popular because of its ability to remove hair long lastingly.
It also provides the following benefits:
- Safe and effective
- Quick and very little, if any, discomfort
- More cost efficient than other temporary hair removal treatments
Is Laser Hair Removal Right for Me?
Laser hair removal is right for you if you have unwanted hair that makes you self-conscious. Laser hair removal is very effective at eliminating unwanted or excess hair.
How is Laser Hair Removal Performed?
Laser hair removal is performed using pulses of intense light energy targeted at hair follicles in the area where the unwanted hair exists. When the laser hits the targeted area, the pigment in the follicles absorb the light, which in turn, turns it to heat to eliminate the hair follicle so that the hair falls out. Laser hair removal requires several treatments to eliminate all the hair in the targeted area since each hair is typically in a different stage of the growth cycle. Each treatment is spread out over several weeks. There is little to no discomfort with laser hair removal.
On What Areas of the Body is Laser Hair Removal Possible?
Laser hair removal can be performed on the face, back, legs and arms, as well as the bikini line and underarms.
How is the Recovery from Laser Hair Removal?
Initially, the skin may appear to have a pink tint to it, similar to a sunburn. If necessary, cold compresses may be applied but is typically not needed. Patients are urged to stay out of the sun to prevent any discoloration of the skin. The hair typically falls out about a month after the treatments.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
Laser hair removal cost differs for each patient as it is based on the area to be treated and the number of treatments required. Dr. Man goes over the costs associated with laser hair removal during a consultation along with the payment options and financing.
