About Laser Hair Removal 

The basic premise of laser hair removal treatments is very simple.  To permanently reduce unwanted hair controlled short, safe bursts of light are directed at the target site. The release of light is then absorbed by the melanin in your hair.  Melanin converts the light to heat which travels down the hair, to the root, disrupting hair follicles that are in the active growth phase.  This prevents future hair growth.  When completed by a team of experts laser hair removal is a safe way to gain permanent results.

At any given time, only 25%-50% of hairs will be in the active growth phase. Therefore, several sessions will be needed to gain optimal results. However, appointments can last as little as five minutes (upper lip) and no more than an hour (back, legs, etc.), while most patients find that the pain is only minimal.

The full list of areas that can be treated includes; abdomen, arms, back, bikini line, cheeks, chest, chin, face, neck, underarm, and upper torso. As an increasingly popular choice of procedure, most patients declare themselves satisfied with the results they see.

Laser Hair Removal Cost

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons states that the average cost for laser hair removal is $285 per session. Given that most patients require four to six sessions to capture all hairs while they’re in the active growth phase, a rough estimate of $1,140-$1,710 is fairly accurate.

In reality, though, the costs will be influenced by a wide range of factors. Some of the most telling features are;

  • Anatomical location – removing hair from the lip will take less time and effort than the back, for example.
  • The number of sessions required – Dr. Christopher Weyer and his team will try to complete the process in the fewest number of sessions.
  • Geographic location – Dermatology & Plastic Surgery of Arizona is one of the most affordable in the Copper State.
  • Hair color – because the treatment targets hair follicle pigments, darker hair is easier to remove than lighter colors.
  • The number of treatment areas – opting to target two areas will bump up the overall cost, but can unlock better value for money.

The best way to gain an accurate insight is via a consultation that can discuss all aspects, as well as the benefits, expectations, and downtime.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

If body hair maintenance has become a major source of frustration due to the pain or frequency of hair removal requirements, laser hair removal provides the permanent solution that you require. However, it should be noted that people with a lighter hair color may struggle to see results as the laser target melanin. Conversely, individuals with dark skin tones may be at risk of bleaching their skin as a result of the treatment.

For those that do fall into the category of suitable candidates, it’s important to avoid fake tanning for at least one month prior to the first session.
