Before getting in front of any laser, you may have a few questions. That is what we are here for – to ease your mind and provide you with answers you can rely on.
Here are three of the most common questions about laser hair removal that we hear at Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center.
How can I best prepare for laser hair removal?
In order to ensure that your laser hair removal procedure is effective, avoid tweezing for at least 6 weeks before your procedure. Tweezing takes out hair from the root, and it’s that root that the laser needs to find in order to eliminate future hair growth. Ask Dr. Green for a numbing cream to ensure your comfort during the process if you are worried about any discomfort or pain.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
A common saying is no pain no gain but don’t worry, laser hair removal isn’t painful. It may be, at most, only temporarily uncomfortable depending on the area. In most instances it’s nearly pain free, and it’s also a quick procedure so any discomfort you may feel won’t last very long. After the treatment, your skin may feel sunburned or irritated for a day or two. We suggest moisturizing your skin to help it heal.
How many sessions will I need?
Every body is different and hair grows at different cycles but for the most part the average number of sessions for laser hair removal is about six. Before your first visit we suggest limiting your plucking or waxing for about six weeks. The reason is that the laser beams highly concentrated light to penetrate and eliminate the hair follicles. It targets the hair’s root and that’s also what is pulled out when waxing or plucking.
What areas of my body can I laser?
Our lasers can remove unwanted hair from your face, legs, arms, back, bikini line, underarms and several other locations where you no longer want to shave or wax anymore. During the month following the procedure you will see your hair begin to fall out. We do suggest you avoid sun exposure for six weeks after each session to avoid any possible skin color changes.
