Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle.

Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments in order to achieve optimal results, since hair grows in cycles, and one treatment will not be able to destroy all hair follicles. Most patients achieve about 75% reduction in hair density after four to six treatments depending on the body area, spaced four to eight weeks apart.

The length and quantity of treatments depends upon the location of the unwanted hair and the patient’s individual response to treatment. Patients who wish to remove hair in between treatment sessions should not wax treated areas to achieve best results.
