What to Expect During Treatment
Before each laser hair reduction session, it’s important to make sure that your hair hasn’t been plucked or waxed in the preceding two weeks, as this can alter the effectiveness of the treatment. We will supply you with cold packs and will use chilled air to keep you comfortable during the procedure. You’ll be given protective eye shields before the laser handpiece is applied to the treatment area. The length of your treatment session will depend on the size of the treatment area and how much hair is present. After each session, you’ll experience some mild sensitivity and redness similar to a sunburn. You should be sure to use sunscreen and avoid sun exposure since laser treatments can make your skin photosensitive. You should also make sure to keep the area moisturized. We will ensure that you are comfortable and understand all post-procedure care instructions before leaving our office.

Getting rid of unwanted hair can be extremely frustrating and time-consuming. Whether it’s plucking, shaving, or waxing, it can come at a high cost to your time and budget.

Not all laser hair reduction is created equal, so it’s important to select a board certified dermatologist for safe, effective results.
What is Laser Hair Reduction?
Laser hair reduction, or laser hair removal, is a treatment that reduces the growth of unwanted hair using laser energy. The laser works by targeting pigment in the hair shaft, generating heat and damaging the follicles, gradually slowing their growth. Laser hair reduction works most effectively on dark hair. Most patients require a package of treatments for the best results. This allows the area to be treated at different stages of the hair growth cycle. During your consultation, we’ll discuss the best treatment package for your goals and the number of sessions you can anticipate. The result of laser hair reduction is a drastic reduction in hair growth, although you may still need to shave, wax, or pluck the area to fully get rid of hair. Laser hair reduction can make it much easier and less labor-intensive. You can also return for maintenance treatments as needed.
