Laser Hair Removal Q & A
Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal — the process of using heated, laser technology to target hair follicles beneath the surface of your skin — both removes unwanted hair and prevents future growth. Laser hair removal treatment is for both men and women looking to remove hair from almost any body part, including:
- Face (particularly chin and upper lip)
- Bikini area
Dr. Singh treats all skin types and can remove lighter-colored hair that traditional laser hair removal techniques can’t affect. By using a special gel that he applies to lighter hair, the pigment-targeting lasers can more easily target the follicle.
How does laser hair removal work?
The lasers use pulses of infrared diode laser energy to gradually heat the hair follicles in the subdermal layer of your skin until they can no longer produce new hair. Dr. Singh uses unique IN-Motion™ technology and a patented DualChill™ treatment tip to ensure that the surface of your skin stays cool and comfortable. There is no need for messy numbing creams because this unique technology makes the treatment extremely quick and comfortable.
Dr. Singh uses the Harmony XL and Soprano ICE lasers by Alma® as well as the Elite+ by Cynosure©. All have customizable settings to accommodate your skin type. The specifics of your laser hair removal treatment plan depend on various factors, including:
- The amount of hair being removed
- Size of the treatment area
- Body part
- Your skin type
Your treatment plan will be discussed and outlined with you, which includes how long treatment sessions will take and how many treatment sessions you need to achieve optimal hair removal results. Optimal results are achieved when you actively participate with feedback during each session as to how you feel your progression is.
What happens after laser hair removal treatment?
You can expect results from a series of relatively short sessions. Depending on the treatment areas, you can typically expect six treatment sessions that last 5-60 minutes (a lip to a full body). Often, many clients see results after the first session.
There’s no downtime after treatment, but you should avoid exposing your treated skin to direct sunlight or any artificial tanning for one to two weeks after a laser hair removal procedure. You may experience some minor side effects, including swelling, redness, or discomfort, but they should subside within one to three days after treatment.
