Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an extremely common cosmetic procedure in the United States. The technique involves beaming highly concentrated light directly into your hair follicles. These follicles then absorb the light to destroy the hair completely.

This process is highly effective in removing unwanted hair around your body, including:

  • Underarm hair
  • Bikini line hair
  • Leg hair
  • Arm hair

While you will need several treatments to get the results you want, laser hair removal is worth it if you are looking for a permanent hair removal solution.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

The wide range of laser hair removal benefits include:

Time

The Candela™ GentleLase pulses treat many hair follicles at once in a fraction of a second, offering an unmatched level of speed and efficiency. Each session is quick, allowing you to resume your day-to-day activities sooner than ever.

Precision

Thanks to the Candela™ laser’s precise and accurate technology, the laser specifically targets hair without damaging the surrounding skin.

Effective

Laser hair removal is highly effective in reducing the amount of targeted hair follicles. While some of your hair eventually grows back, the growth rate is extremely slow. That’s why laser hair removal is considered a permanent solution to unwanted hair.

What can I expect from the laser hair removal process?

Depending on the area you want to treat, laser hair removal typically takes anywhere from three to seven sessions. Before each session, it’s important to avoid extended sun exposure to ensure you get the best results possible.

When you arrive at the office for your first treatment, your physician lightly trims your hair to prepare for the session. Next, the laser is adjusted precisely for the color, thickness, and region of your unwanted hair. The technician then tests the laser on your targeted area to ensure the settings are perfect.

Once the procedure ends, you may be given soothing creams or anti-inflammatory medication to reduce any discomfort, redness, or inflammation on your skin. For the best results, schedule your next appointment for four to six weeks after the initial treatment.

The Ocean Obstetric & Gynecologic Associates team has the technology, equipment, and experience to give you the best laser hair removal results. To schedule a consultation, call the office or book online today.
