How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser Hair Removal employs intense, pulsating light waves to kill the base of the hair follicle and inhibit hair growth. It’s really that simple; kill the follicle and hair won’t grow back. A normal treatment protocol is around 6 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Clinical studies have shown that each treatment session is able to eliminate about 20% of the hair follicles in a given treatment area.

Is Laser Hair Removal Right For Me?

Because of the laser’s ability to pick up darker hair more successfully, laser hair removal is best for those with lighter skin and darker hair.

Popular treatment areas include:

  • Bikini
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Lower face
  • Neck

What Does LHR Feel Like?

Treatment feels like a quick “snap” on the skin, similar to a rubber band. Normal post-treatment response is some slight redness and bumpiness that lasts anywhere from a few hours to a few days. Don’t expect to be completely fuzz-free immediately. This is a treatment that takes time to see results because of the hair growth cycle.

After the initial treatments there should be a 60 to 90 percent reduction in hair. Hair that is destroyed by the laser is permanently gone but you may need yearly touch-ups to stay free of unwanted hair. Any hair that does grow back will be finer, lighter, sparser, and exceedingly easy to remove.
