Laser hair removal is a method you can use to remove your body hair (or at least reduce it) for good. If you get laser hair removal, you no longer have to shave every day or every other day. You can also use laser hair removal to avoid needing waxes every few weeks.
Compared to these other more traditional methods of hair removal, laser hair removal:
Most people require several laser hair removal sessions so that each targeted hair is treated during its growth phase. You can use laser hair removal to get rid of your body hair in almost any area excluding areas near your eyes.
Dr. Azar and the team use the Gentle Pro® series of lasers to conduct laser hair removal treatments in the areas you decide to target. These lasers are highly advanced and can safely treat all skin types.
During the treatment, Dr. Azar directs a beam of focused light onto your skin. The pigment in the hairs absorbs the heat from the laser which damages the hair follicles. Those follicles then stop growing hair.
Some follicles are more susceptive to heat than others. You must capture each follicle in its growth phase because that’s when laser hair removal works best.
The results of laser hair removal can vary based on multiple factors, such as your skin type and hormonal hair growth patterns. After each session, you’ll notice a reduction in the amount of hair in the targeted areas. The hair reduction increases with each session until your personalized treatment regimen is complete.
It’s possible to see some hair grow back months or years after you get laser hair removal. While this hair is lighter, finer, and harder to see than before, you may return to Angela Azar, MD, for touch-up laser hair removal treatments to capture the regrowth.
