What Can Laser Hair Reduction Achieve?

Smoother Skin


With laser hair reduction or reduction, your skin will remain hair-free for significantly longer periods than with other methods — maybe even permanently. You won’t have to worry about shaving or waxing to get that soft, silky skin. All you’ll need to do is wake up in the morning and enjoy the smooth feel and look of your skin.

Less Hassle


Many men and women are self-conscious about the appearance of hair on their bodies, whether it be unsightly back hair, facial hair, or arm and leg hair. Some people worry so much that they cover up their hairy skin with long sleeves and pants, but with laser hair reduction, you can proudly show off your skin to the world without daily shaving.

Long-Term Results


Laser hair reduction treatments target hair follicles at different growth stages. Because the laser damages the hair at the follicle, the hair will not regrow — or not regrow as fast or thick. This provides patients with long-term results that may even be permanent.

Most patients who experience regrowth often note that the hair is lighter and thinner. Touch up treatments may be needed one to two times per year depending on the patient.

What Does Laser Hair Reduction Entail?

Anesthesia


A topical anesthetic is sometimes applied to the skin to improve comfort for the patient; however, much of the time, this is not necessary.

Lasers Directed at the Hair Follicle


Your technician moves a handheld device over the areas of your skin where hair will be removed. The lasers are concentrated pulses of light that target and damage the hair follicle without affecting the surrounding skin. The handheld device allows for controlled precision so that the hair you want to be rid of is gone and nothing else is harmed.

Results


After you are finished with the recommended number of laser hair reduction sessions, you should have smooth skin that is free of any unsightly hair. You won’t have to worry about keeping unwanted hair managed. Instead, you will be able to go out in public with renewed confidence in yourself and your appearance.

Concerns

Recovery


One of the best parts of laser hair reduction is that there is no downtime associated with it. Your skin in the treated areas may feel tender, as if sunburned, though this will dissipate within a few hours. Additionally, your skin may feel sensitive to sunlight for at least six weeks, so you will want to make sure to wear sunscreen when you go outside.

Sessions


For optimal results, patients usually require six laser hair reduction sessions, spaced five to seven weeks apart. This ensures that the hair follicles are treated at different growth phases.

Cost


The specific cost of laser hair reduction varies with each patient. At your consultation, your technician can gauge the extent of the hair reduction procedure and give you a full cost estimate. Packages are available for additional savings.

Pain


Laser hair reduction is non-invasive and non-surgical, which means that pain should be minimal at most. Most patients have reported the feeling to be that of a rubber band snapping against their skin during the procedure and a feeling of a mild sunburn after it is finished.

Cold compresses may be used to alleviate any soreness after the procedure.
