  • All about Laser Hair Removal

    More and more American men and women have begun to visit their dermatologists to ask about removing unwanted hair—for good. Laser hair removal is a safe and relatively painless procedure that can put an end to the shaving, waxing, and tweezing that can leave your skin irritated and dry. Whether you want to avoid painful ingrown hairs or are simply tired of removing hair on your own just to watch it grow back, here are the basics you need to know about laser hair removal.

    How to Prepare

    It is important to remember that laser hair removal is more than just a simple cosmetic fix; it is a medical procedure that eliminates the hair and its roots. Before you undergo laser hair removal, be sure to schedule a consultation with your dermatologist to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure and that your dermatologist has experience in the field.

    What to Expect

    During your treatment, your hair follicles will be pulsed by tiny lasers that target each area for a fraction of a second. The short treatment time makes it possible to treat small areas like the upper lip in under a minute. In addition, laser hair removal is precise. The procedure selectively targets dark, coarse hairs and leaves the surrounding skin completely untouched and undamaged.

    When to Go

    Laser hair removal generally requires several treatments, and each client is unique. Each visit to your dermatologist should take less than an hour. Many men and women schedule laser hair removal over their lunch breaks or even before or after work.

    Who to Visit

    Most cosmetic dermatologists and many medical spas perform laser hair removal. However, the benefit to visiting an experienced skin doctor is that a dermatologist always has both your health and your cosmetic appearance in mind. In addition, dermatologists are often more experienced in this technical procedure, making sure you get the best results from your treatment.
