Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a permanent solution to unwanted body hair that utilizes laser technology to destroy hair at the roots and prevent regrowth. Dr. Averilla has advanced training in laser technology in order to provide you with a safe, effective laser hair removal experience so you get the results you want with minimal discomfort.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal works by pulsing high-intensity light onto hair follicles to destroy the hair root and prevent it from growing back. Dr. Averilla customizes your laser treatment based on the location, thickness, and color of your hair to avoid discomfort on sensitive skin while effectively destroying hair at the roots.
During your procedure, you’ll wear light-blocking glasses to protect your eyes. Your body hair will be trimmed down as needed to allow easier access to the roots. Dr. Averilla will press the handheld wand against your skin and pulse the laser on and off.
When the laser is turned on, you may feel a mild warming or snapping sensation – like a rubber band – on your skin. Once your procedure is over, you can return to your normal activities, though you may want to use ice or ibuprofen if your skin is sore.
Where can laser hair removal be used?
Laser hair removal can work in many of the same areas as shaving and waxing. The most popular areas for laser hair removal are:
- Bikini line
- Arms and underarms
- Upper lip and chin
The length of your procedure will depend on the size of the treatment area. Small areas – like the face and underarms – only take about 10 minutes, whereas larger areas can take up to an hour to complete.
What results can I expect after laser hair removal?
After your laser hair removal session, you may notice finer, thinner hair regrowth. Typically, it takes three to seven sessions to see permanent results. Dr. Averilla will recommend an appropriate number of sessions based on the area that is being treated and the thickness and color of your hair.
Each session is scheduled four to six weeks apart. In between appointments, you’ll notice less hair regrowth until your skin is smooth and hair-free.
