Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal
1. What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is an effective advanced procedure currently used worldwide over traditional methods of hair removal. We use the Candela GentleLase Laser, which delivers a special light absorbed by the hair follicle. The light creates heat which results in destruction of the individual hair follicle. The surrounding skin is protected during treatment by a Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) where cryogen is sprayed onto the skin, cooling the upper layers and providing patients with increased comfort which cools the skin before, during and after the treatment to minimize discomfort and protect the skin.
2. Is it safe?
Yes. Laser light is a non-ionizing energy which is not absorbed into the body.
3. Is it permanent?
The FDA has approved lasers for permanent hair reduction. Laser treatments will significantly decrease the amount of hair, and possibly completely remove it, but fine, baby hair may remain.
4. How many treatments will I need?
Most people will require an average of 6-10 treatments for a specific area. Results vary per individual; some people require more than 6. Laser hair removal is most effective when hair follicles are in the active phase of growth. However, not all hairs grow at the same time, this is why multiple treatments are necessary.
5. What is the duration between treatments?
Treatments will be spaced approximately 5-6 weeks apart. This allows for regrowth.
6. Will it hurt?
Most patients describe the sensation as being ‘snapped with a rubber band’. This is transient. To reduce discomfort, we recommend a topical anesthetic applied 1.5 hours prior to your procedure. This significantly reduces any discomfort.
7. How long do I avoid the sun?
Avoid sun exposure for 4 weeks after your treatment. If further treatments are necessary, you must commit to staying out of the sun. If you choose to go in the sun, please wear protective clothing and sunscreen. We recommend SPF 45 or greater.
