Laser hair removal is one of the most common medical procedures that uses a pulsating beam of light to remove unwanted hair. The laser targets dark pigment, called melanin, in the hair. When the light beam targets the hair follicle, the pigment in the root of the hair absorbs the light and destroys the hair causing permanent hair reduction. Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, legs, arms, underarms, stomach, bikini line and other areas.

Prior to your laser hair removal treatment, be sure you avoid anything that could remove your hair root, such as plucking or waxing. You should also avoid:
Laser hair removal works on a number of different areas of the body, such as the back, upper lip, and chest. It isn’t a suitable treatment for use around the eye area and is more effective for removing darker hair.
You might experience a tolerable, mild discomfort during your laser hair removal session.
For facial hair, your technician might incorporate electrolysis into the treatment regimen, depending on your hair color. Treating facial hair with laser hair removal only takes about 5 to 15 minutes.
Most people need around five to eight treatments to get noticeable and lasting results. To properly target your active hair growth cycle, the treatments are spaced around four to six weeks apart.
Your laser technician might also recommend occasional maintenance treatments in the future.
After your laser hair removal session, you might have some mild swelling and redness in the area, and your technician might give you an antiseptic cream to soothe your skin and help your skin heal.
There’s no downtime and you can get back to your day immediately. You should avoid direct sun exposure to the treated areas for about one week.
Laser hair removal is FDA-approved for safe and permanent hair reduction. It can treat larger areas quickly and conveniently and the hair sloughs off in about two weeks.
