What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal treatments employ light energy to permanently damage or kill hair follicles on the legs, back, underarms, or face to prevent hair from coming back. Laser hair removal treatments are most commonly used on the legs, back, underarms, or face.

According to the FDA, laser hair removal may successfully reduce the amount of hair you have by around 70 percent. While it may not be possible to eliminate all of your hair, any hair that does grow back is often considerably more delicate and less visible. Varied body sections require the use of different protocols as well. For example, you should wait four to six weeks between laser hair removal treatments on your face and six to eight weeks between laser hair removal treatments on any other parts of your body. This is because new hair growth cycles at different times. It's a good idea to begin a series of treatments in late fall or early winter for smoother skin by the summer.

Am I a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

For patients in Monmouth County Laser hair removal is most effective for persons who have light skin and dark hair because the contrast makes it simpler for the laser to target the pigment in the hair follicle during the treatment. If you have blond hair and fair complexion or dark hair and dark complexion, you need to consult with our medical team if laser hair removal is a suitable treatment for you.

Preparing for Laser Hair Removal

You should refrain from waxing, tweezing, or plucking for two to six weeks before your appointment; however, shaving is fine. When it comes to your body or facial hair, it should be in the average stage of growth, which is when the hair is actively growing to allow the laser to target the melanin in the hair bulb efficiently.

This means that your sessions will be scheduled at varying intervals to ensure that you capture the appropriate stage of development. Before your session, shave the treated area with a clean, fresh blade within 24 hours of your appointment. This aids in the location of your hair follicles by the laser light. On the other hand, stubble can cause damage to the laser and increase the likelihood of burning your skin, so timing is critical. For one of the best Laser Hair Removals Monmouth county has to offer, avoid UV exposure during the month leading up to your treatment, including tanning beds and self-tanning products.

Your Laser Hair Procedure

Depending on the extent of the area being treated, each treatment might take up to an hour. For example, treating small regions like the top of the lip, the ears, and the chin takes less than a minute. However, treating bigger areas like the back of the neck or legs might take up to an hour or more. Your provider will assess which type of laser is most appropriate for your skin and hair and your desired results. Inform them of any medications you are taking and medical conditions.

The laser equipment will be calibrated to your skin tone and hair thickness before your treatment. Special eye protection will be required to ensure that the laser light does not harm your eyes. In addition, your doctor may employ a cold gel or cooling gadget to protect your skin while also assisting the laser to go deeper. After that, you'll get a test pulse of light to the treatment region. Finally, your physician will examine the area over several minutes to see whether you've had any adverse responses to the therapy. While your provider meticulously treats one tiny region at a time, you may experience moderate discomfort, such as a warm pinprick or snap, as the laser travels over your skin.

Laser Hair Recovery

In order to keep swelling down and ease any soreness, you may be given cold packs and anti-inflammatory treatments once the treatment is completed. For a day or two following treatment, the treated region of your skin may seem and feel like it has been sunburned, and you may need to apply cold compresses or a light moisturizer to soothe the skin. If you have your face treated, you should be able to comfortably wear makeup the following day unless your skin becomes inflamed.

Laser Hair Results

The use of laser hair removal will permanently limit hair growth, but it will not completely eliminate it in all situations. Therefore, additional sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results. However, your provider will discuss and recommend more laser hair removal sessions if required.

Laser Hair Removal Frequently Asked Questions

Laser hair removal will be unpleasant for some people, but it shouldn't hurt. However, you should avoid caffeine on the day of your treatment if you are prone to anxiety, and you should postpone it if you are sick since sickness might make you more sensitive to discomfort. Although you can ask for numbing cream, some doctors will not use it since the sensation of discomfort may provide essential input to the technician, prompting them to dial down the laser.

It's essential that your laser hair removal is done by a highly trained medical technician, such as those at Radiant by MD. The laser setting is crucial; otherwise, hyperpigmentation, redness, blisters, and scarring may occur. Furthermore, the kind of laser employed is determined by your skin tone.

There are several variables that influence the cost of laser hair removal, including the kind and color of hair, the size of the region to be treated, and the number of sessions necessary. Typically, multiple treatments are required, with the number of treatments ranging between five and eight, depending on the size of the treated area and the duration of the development cycle.

Laser hair removal is considered a cosmetic treatment and is not covered by medical insurance.

To see results, most people need six to eight laser hair removal treatments spaced out every four to eight weeks and an annual maintenance session. Every patient is different, so your provider will determine the number of sessions for optimal results.
