How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal uses laser light pulses to selectively destroy hair follicles by targeting the melanin (color) in them. The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser’s light pulse, which damages the follicle enough to significantly slow hair regrowth. Laser hair removal provides permanent hair reduction by up to 90 percent after a series of six-to-eight treatments.
What’s a laser hair removal treatment like?
The size of the area being treated determines how long a treatment will take. During the treatment you my feel a prickling and or burning sensation. Most patients describe the sensation as similar to that of a rubber band being snapped against the skin.
How do I prepare for a laser hair removal treatment?
Prior to a laser hair removal treatment, you’ll be asked to avoid sun exposure for a minimum of four weeks beforehand. This is because suntans can reduce the effect of the laser treatment. You’ll also be asked to discontinue waxing or tweezing three weeks before a laser hair removal treatment. Make sure to follow all pre-care instructions your medical professional gives you.
How many treatments will I need?
It depends on the area being treated. Because only hair follicles in the active growth stage can be successfully targeted during a laser hair removal treatment, you may need between three and eight treatments spaced five-to-eight weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
What are the side effects?
Potential side effects include skin irritation that can last up to 24 hours after laser hair removal treatment. You might also notice hair shedding and regrowth. While complications are rare, they can still occur. The most common complications include blisters, swelling, pigmentation changes, redness, and scarring. Scabbing and bruising can also occur, but these symptoms generally disappear within a few days. Connect with your medical professional if any side effects do not subside.
