Laser hair removal has recently gained popularity because it offers permanent hair removal that eliminates the need for daily touch-ups like waxing and shaving. At Laser Skin & Wellness, we use the CoolGlide laser and ProWave 770 systems to safely remove unwanted hair on all body parts. Each laser targets melanin in the hair follicle, which will absorb the laser light and lighten before the treated hair eventually falls out.
With laser hair removal, hair can be permanently reduced on all parts of your body such as the legs, face, legs, chest, back, underarms, or your bikini line.
No laser or light-based system can treat light-colored hair (blonde or white) or some red hair tones since there is no melanin to absorb the light and reduce the amount of hair.

Patients report a feeling like a rubber band snapping as the laser pulses, however, local anesthesia and pain medicine are most often not needed. We do offer a topical anesthetic to patients that are treating sensitive areas, such as the bikini area or upper lip.
With all laser procedures, there are risks that will be discussed at your consultation but overall, laser treatment is safe. It is very important to choose a provider that has many years of experience using lasers for hair removal on all skin types.

Immediately following laser hair removal, the treated skin may appear red and feel tender. While your skin is healing, you should avoid sun exposure and refrain from waxing and plucking your hair. However, you are able to shave as frequently as you wish. During the next couple of days, it may seem that the hairs were unaffected. It will take approximately 2 weeks for the treated hairs to shed and fall out.
Most areas of the body need 5-6 treatments scheduled about every six weeks. The actual required number of laser treatments can vary based on several factors, namely the amount of hair, hair thickness, and hair growth cycle.
All laser treatments are designed to disable the hair roots while they are in the active growth phase at the time of each treatment. Considering that each hair regrows at different times and your hair starts the active growth phase at various times, maintenance laser treatments are generally necessary to disable each one of the hair follicles in a given location.
