Frequently Asked Questions - About Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal
If you live with unwanted hair on your back, legs, upper lip or other areas, you may be surprised to find that you can find permanent relief to your problem through pulsed light hair removal.
How it works and What to expect..
Laser hair removal has been around since the 1990’s and is a safe non-invasive procedure. Pulsed light treatments are remarkable because they can provide permanent hair reduction on large body areas with a minimum of discomfort. I use a Palomar Pulsed Light System and my patients have experienced superior results after only a few treatments. Pulsed Light is similar to a laser in that it used an intense beam of light. However, Palomar employs a new technology that removes hair up to ten times faster than most lasers. Palomar Pulsed Light Systems have the flexibility to provide hair removal treatments on different types of skin and hair. The systems remove unwanted hair by delivering a pulse of intense light directly into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair. Pulsed light treatments are exponentially more effective than such temporary solutions as shaving and waxing. Most patients describe the pulses as a “snapping” sensation, which causes mild discomfort at most. After the treatment, there may be some redness for a few days, but that quickly fades and the patient can enjoy the effects of smooth skin.
Frequently Ask Questions…
Is laser hair removal painful?
If you have had electrolysis, you will find laser hair removal to be considerable more tolerable. The procedure itself is so fast on most areas it is finished before you know it.
Do I have to have my hair long for treatment?
No, in fact you should shave the area to be treated two days prior to coming in. We want the laser to target the hair and hair follicle. If the hair is too long the laser could be wasted on the surface hair, never making it into the follicle.
