Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal involves using a concentrated beam of light, which is aimed at the hair. The laser will target the hair’s pigments, which will disrupt the hair follicles, and this consequently stops hair from growing in the future.

Is it Permanent?

Laser hair removal is not permanent. It is a semi-permanent procedure, offering long-lasting results.

Most people will require between three and seven sessions of laser hair removal treatment. After this, you can expect hair loss for around two years and sometimes even longer. 

You will then need maintenance treatments, but you won’t need as many sessions as you did to begin with.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

There are many benefits that are associated with laser hair removal, including the following:

  • Most patients will experience long-term hair loss after three to seven sessions. 
  • You will save money over your lifetime, as you won’t need to spend money on hair removal products. 
  • Laser hair removal is a fast treatment, as each laser pulse only takes a fraction of a second, treating many hairs at the same time. 
  • Precision is another benefit, as the lasers can selectively target coarse and dark hairs, ensuring the rest of the skin around the treatment area is undamaged. 
  • You can also say goodbye to ingrown hairs with laser treatment, which is something a lot of people experience because of shaving or waxing. Ingrown hairs can be sore and itchy, appearing like little red bumps on the skin. 
  • Your skin will also look smoother and more radiant, as waxing and shaving can irritate the skin. Rashes and dry skin are a common complaint of those who shave regularly.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Unfortunately, not everyone is going to be a candidate for laser hair removal. This treatment is most effective in patients with dark-colored hair and light-colored skin.

The reason for this is because the laser is attracted to the melanin within the hair. Therefore, to be treated by the laser, the treated hair needs to have color. 

If you have light-colored hair, this does not mean laser hair removal is not an option. It does mean that it can take more treatments, though, so do keep that in mind.

Patients with black or very dark brown skin are not usually good candidates for laser hair removal. This is due to the risk of the skin being bleached.

The best thing to do is to book a consultation with the certified medical laser technicians at Dermatology & Plastic Surgery of Arizona to determine whether you’re a good candidate.
