Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses targeted light energy to destroy hair follicles so hair can no longer grow. The energy effectively renders the follicles useless, but does no damage to the skin in the process.

What areas can be treated with laser hair removal?

Most anywhere you have unwanted hair can be treated with lasers. Consider the treatment for your:

  • Back and chest
  • Arms and legs
  • Face (except around the eyes)
  • Shoulders
  • Underarms
  • Bikini line

Discuss your aesthetic goals with the providers at SLENT to determine if laser hair removal is right for you. Both men and women can benefit from laser hair removal.

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

Laser hair removal is most effective on hair in the growth cycle, so you need multiple treatments to get all hair in that stage. Most areas respond well to approximately six treatments scheduled four to six weeks apart. The exact number of treatments you need depends on your hair density and skin type.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal greatly reduces hair growth and often eliminates it altogether for good. If you’re bothered by blonde, white, or grey hair, however, it’s less effective. The staff at SLENT can help you determine if the procedure is right for your goals.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

You feel heat and a sensation similar to that of a rubber band snapping against your skin during a session. Most people do just fine with the treatment and don’t require any numbing cream beforehand. If you have particularly dark and coarse hair, you may feel more intense sensations than someone with light, sparse hair growth.

Do I need to schedule downtime following laser hair removal sessions?

You can go right back to all your regular activities following laser hair removal sessions. No downtime is necessary. You do need to avoid direct sun exposure afterward though, as your skin is temporarily extra sensitive to ultraviolet rays.
