Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Light from the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle, thereby disabling the follicle and its ability to grow hair without damaging the surrounding skin. An ideal candidate for laser hair removal has dark coarse hair with fair skin. Blonde, grey and light red hair will not respond to the laser and optimal results will not be achieved.
Hair grows in three cycles. The most effective time for hair removal is during the growth phase. At any time about 10-30% of your hair is actively growing. Since there’s no way to know which hair is growing, treatments need to be repeated approximately every 4-6 weeks. Usually four to six treatments will be necessary for full results though depending on hormonal drive, results may vary. Some hair may grow in the weeks between treatments. This hair is usually finer, lighter and thinner after each treatment.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
Laser Hair Removal is FDA approved and is both safe and effective.
What Happens After Laser Hair Removal Treatments?
The skin may become slightly red and puffy, like mild sunburn. This usually dissipates within an hour and most people return to normal activity immediately.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Laser hair removal is FDA approved to be up to 80% permanent hair reduction. Once a satisfactory level of hair removal has been achieved, the results can persist for years. Very often genetic and ethnic hormonal drive for hair growth can cause the need for maintenance treatments.

People, who have had problems with scarring or keloids in the past, or problems with skin darkening from inflammation, may not be good candidates for laser hair removal. Those who have taken Accutane® for acne should discontinue it for six months before laser treatments.
