Laser Hair Removal Q & A


What happens during laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal specifically targets and destroys unwanted body hair. Treatments work by sending beams of laser heat energy deep into your hair follicle, without heating up or burning the surface of your skin. As your hair follicle heats up, the growth cycle is immediately disrupted.

Over time, the destroyed hair naturally sheds away. When it grows back, it comes back finer, lighter, and thinner until, eventually, treated hair stops growing back altogether.

Modern laser hair removal treatments are quick and easy. All you have to do is lie back, slip on eye protection, and let your practitioner zap away your unwanted body hair.


Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

The state-of-the-art laser hair removal system at Advanced Dermatology is ideal for just about all men and women. You are a candidate for laser hair removal if you have:

  • Light to dark skin
  • Fine to coarse hair
  • Light to dark hair
  • Tanned skin

Laser hair removal is effective for permanently destroying almost all hairs in the treatment area. But you’re going to need to stick to your treatment plan and undergo several sessions to achieve optimal results.


When will I have results with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is most effective when your hair is in the active growth (anagen) phase. But each hair is at a different stage in the growth cycle at any given time, which is why multiple sessions are necessary.

In most cases, treated hair falls out on its own within a couple of weeks of your very first treatment. With each subsequent session, about every 4-6 weeks, you continue noticing less and less hair regrowth. Usually, a package of 6-8 laser hair removal sessions at Advanced Dermatology is ideal for smoother skin.

Sometimes, especially with women who go through hormonal fluctuations, new hair growth does surface in the treatment area. If this occurs, you can always come back for touch-up laser hair removal sessions as needed long after your treatment package is complete.
