What to Expect From Laser Hair Removal Treatment

by | Aug 25, 2022 | Uncategorized

Lasers are the most effective hair removal treatment option that provides long-lasting results. Laser treatment of unwanted hair does require a great deal of expertise and experience to produce an optimal outcome.  It is always best to have laser hair removal treatments with a board-certified dermatologist who performs the procedures themselves to ensure safety and efficacy of the treatment.

At Laser Skin & Surgery Center of New York, we have multiple lasers for hair removal and our physicians will choose the correct device for your skin type and hair color.

What Happens During the Laser Hair Removal Procedure?

The laser hair removal process is relatively comfortable, thanks to the application of a topical numbing cream before the procedure begins. The laser also utilizes a cooling spray to enhance patient comfort.   

This device delivers bursts of laser energy that target the hair follicles where your hair originates. By damaging the follicle, the laser causes current hair to shed. It also makes it difficult for future hair to grow, which is why laser hair removal is considered a long-lasting form of hair reduction. 

Laser hair removal can only treat follicles that are in the growth phase. Since follicles are at different phases of the hair growth cycle at one time, multiple treatments are required to produce full results. Once all follicles are treated, hair regrowth is usually minimal.

How Long Will the Treatment Take?

Topical numbing cream usually takes up to 60 minutes to take effect. Once the area is numb, the actual hair removal process is relatively quick as we are using the most up-to-date lasers that provide the fastest treatments while maintaining safety for the patients.

 

What To Expect Expect After Your Laser Hair Removal Appointment

You may experience some redness to the treated area following your procedure which should resolve quickly.

 

How Many Appointments Are Needed for Full Results?

Multiple treatment sessions are required to obtain the maximum benefit of this therapeutic approach and this will vary from patient to patient.  Some hair colors including gray, blonde and red do not respond to laser hair removal.
