What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses laser energy (high intensity light) to remove unwanted hair. The treatment requires no shaving, plucking or waxing.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Our patients prefer laser hair removal because it is less painful than waxing, plucking and shaving. You may also notice that laser hair removal does not cause the red bumps and ingrown hairs that often occurs with other methods. Treatment times for laser hair removal are typically less than one hour, depending on the size of the area and nature of the hair.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The intense light energy from the laser hair removal system targets and destroys hair follicles. This slows hair growth. You may notice some hairs remaining after the treatment, but these hairs will eventually fall out.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
The best candidates for laser hair removal are men and women who have lighter skin and darker hair. Even if you do not meet these criteria, you may still be a good candidate. Find out if laser hair removal is right for you by scheduling a consultation with one of our laser technicians.
What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal
A special tool is used to administer the laser energy. The laser technician sets parameters on the system to match your hair color and texture. The laser energy is applied in quick bursts, and each burst may feel like a slight pinch on your skin. Six to ten treatments may be recommended to completely remove the hair.
How Long is the Recovery After a Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
No recovery is required after laser hair removal. You will want to avoid any prolonged sun exposure for 1-2 weeks after your treatment. Because hair grows in cycles and is affected by changing hormone levels mild regrowth may occur at a later date. If regrowth occurs, schedule a follow-up appointment for an additional treatment.
Additional Treatment Information
Your medical insurance does not cover laser hair removal because the procedure is considered cosmetic and elective. For your convenience, we accept payment by cash, checks, major credit cards and some financing options. You may qualify for financing through CareCredit® and LendingUSA.
