There are different lasers for different skin types.
How does laser hair removal work?
The primary goal of laser hair removal is to utilize a laser to target and kill hair follicles. Once the hair follicle is dead, the hair won’t grow back.
How can I get the most effective hair removal laser treatment?
Multiple treatments are needed for the best results. there is no set number a person can have to achieve optimal results. The key is to be consistent. Be sure to come back when you are supposed to.
Is it painful?
The procedure isn’t usually too painful, but certain areas of the body can be more sensitive, such as the bikini line, or upper lip areas. Pain tolerance varies, so it depends on the person. If a patient has a difficult time with the procedure, a topical numbing cream can be applied one hour before the appointment to provide relief.
Does it work on all hair colors?
Laser hair removal is best on dark, coarse hair. It will not respond to red, white, or blond hair because the laser light searches for the dark pigment in the hair follicle, so it will not see lighter hair.
Can all skin tones receive laser hair treatment?
With the right laser, all skin types can be treated. The lighter your skin is the safer it is, because the laser is searching for dark pigment. Darker skin types such as Asian, Hispanic, or African skin need to be treated more carefully so that the laser doesn’t burn the skin or upset their pigment in any way.
Will pregnancy affect laser hair removal?
I’ve seen hair brow back if women become pregnant, because pregnancy changes hormone levels, which can cause hair to grow back. Once the baby is born and hormones return to normal, after a few laser treatments things usually go back to the way they were.
Whether you choose laser hair removal or not, make sure you’ve done your research so you can get the most out of your laser hair removal treatments
