Laser Hair Removal

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a popular safe alternative to waxing and shaving to remove unwanted body hair. Laser hair removal is less expensive than other hair removal methods such as maintaining a waxing and shaving routine for a lifetime.

At Skin Solutions, we use FDA-cleared lasers that are tailored to your specific skin type, skin color, and hair color.

How does laser hair removal work?

The Alpha Hair Removal Laser is an extraordinarily precise technology that covers large treatment areas, making treatments convenient and fast.

The laser is targeted at the hair follicle in the desired treatment area, then pulses of light emit highly concentrated energy.

When it reaches the hair follicles, the photons in the laser convert their energy to heat, and that heat destroys the follicle without damaging the skin or tissue surrounding it.

When will I see the results of a laser hair removal treatment?

After the first treatment, patients will see a dramatic reduction of hair in the treated area. The results will vary from patient to patient.

It can take several weeks for the follicles to begin to fall out. Continued visible improvements will occur with each successive treatment.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

At Skin Solutions, we guarantee permanent hair removal. Laser hair removal is not completely permanent but the treatment provides long-lasting hair reduction to significantly prevent future hair growth.

The reduction rate for laser hair removal for most patients is 90%.

Is laser hair removal painful?

At Skin Solutions Dermatology, our laser hair removal treatment is designed to provide maximum comfort at every stage of the treatment with integrated 3PC Contact Cooling.

Our state-of-the-art technology ensures the most comfortable and safe experience for you. Most patients report temporary discomfort or minimal to zero discomfort.

What is the downtime of laser hair removal?

There’s no recovery time needed after treatment. We recommend you avoid sun exposure and not use a tanning bed following the treatment.

Following your treatment, we recommend wearing more sunscreen in affected areas if you are in the sun and avoiding sun exposure as much as possible

After a treatment, darker skin may have light patches. In time, skin color tends to return to normal. Some changes to skin color, however, are permanent. This is why seeing a medical doctor who is skilled in laser treatments and has in-depth knowledge of the skin is so important. 

It is also important to follow your provider’s instructions. Following both the before-treatment instructions and after-treatment instructions will greatly reduce your risk of side effects.

How do I prepare for a laser hair removal treatment?

Do not wax the area before coming to your appointment, but you can shave.

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need to see results?

For best results, most patients need a series of 6-8 treatments.

Patients may require multiple laser hair removal treatments and maintenance laser treatments in order to achieve desired results and maintain unwanted hair growth.

Who are the best candidates for laser hair removal treatments?

Laser hair removal is most effective for people with light skin and dark hair, but all skin types can benefit from the procedure due to advances in laser medicine.

We recommend more treatments for patients that have hair with less pigment. Patients with white or gray hair will require additional treatments as well. At Skin Solutions, we will work with each patient to provide treatment plans.
