Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. The light emitted by the laser is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair, generating heat that damages the hair follicle. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth, giving you smoother, hair-free skin. It’s a popular treatment option for those seeking a long-term solution to tedious shaving or waxing routines.
Laser hair removal offers a range of benefits. It can significantly reduce hair growth, providing a long-term solution to removing unwanted hair. It’s precise, targeting hairs down to the follicle, and effective on large areas of the body. Laser hair removal saves time and money in the long run by eliminating the need for continuous shaving or waxing. It’s also a solution for ingrown hairs and razor burns. With repeated treatments, many people experience permanent hair loss.
Laser hair removal works by focusing a specific wavelength of light onto the skin, targeting the pigment in hair follicles. The light converts to heat, which damages the hair follicle and delays or inhibits future hair growth. It’s important to note that several sessions are typically required, as hair follicles respond best to laser treatment when they’re in the growth stage of their cycle.
The results of laser hair removal can vary between individuals, but generally, it results in significant reduction of hair growth. After a series of treatments, many clients experience a prolonged period where no hair regrowth occurs. When hair does regrow, it’s often finer and lighter in color. Keep in mind that multiple treatments are usually necessary to achieve optimal results, and maintenance treatments may be required.
Preparation for laser hair removal begins about six weeks prior to your treatment. You should avoid sun exposure as sunburned or tanned skin can negatively affect the results and increase the risk of side effects. You should also refrain from plucking, waxing, or electrolysis which disturb the hair follicle. Shaving is allowed because it preserves the hair shaft and follicle. On the day of treatment, the area should be cleanly shaven and completely clean of any creams or oils.
During a laser hair removal session, Dr. G will use a handheld device that emits intense light pulses into each hair follicle. The skin around the follicle remains cool during this process due to a cooling mechanism built into the device. The process can take from a few minutes to several hours, depending on the size of the area being treated.
Recovery from laser hair removal is generally straightforward. You might experience redness or swelling for the first few hours after treatment. Applying ice to the area can help alleviate these symptoms. It’s recommended to avoid sun exposure and to use sunscreen when out in the sun to protect the treated skin. You can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment, but strenuous physical activity is best avoided for 24 hours to minimize irritation.
While laser hair removal is generally safe, potential side effects can include skin irritation, redness, swelling, and discomfort similar to sunburn. These usually disappear within a few hours. Rarely, laser hair removal can cause changes in skin color and blistering. Also, the treatment is not as effective on hair that is grey, white, or light blond because there’s less pigment for the laser to target.
The cost of laser hair removal varies depending on the size of the area being treated and the number of required treatments to achieve the results you desire. During your consultation with Dr. G, you’ll receive a more accurate estimate based on your specific needs. Remember that while the upfront cost may seem significant, laser hair removal can lead to long-term savings by eliminating the ongoing cost of shaving or waxing.
