Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What happens during laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is the most modern and effective way to rapidly destroy unwanted body hair and dramatically reduce hair growth. During a laser hair removal session, your practitioner carefully moves the handheld laser device over your treatment area. The laser emits rapid pulses of laser energy, which penetrate deep into pores and reach hairs at the follicle.
This effect heats up hair follicles at the growth center, damaging the hair and stopping the growth cycle on the spot. Since the laser destroys the hair, your skin simply pushes it out over the following couple of weeks.
Is laser hair removal right for me?
Laser hair removal is most commonly beneficial if you have darker hair and lighter skin. Because of advancements in aesthetic laser technology though, you may be a candidate for laser hair removal even if you have lighter or finer hair or even darker or tanned skin.
You can get laser hair removal just about anywhere on your body, too. Laser hair removal can effectively reduce hair growth on your:
- Back or chest
- Legs or arms
- Face or chin
- Bikini line
The best way to find out if laser hair removal is right for you is to book a consultation at Women’s Health Center of Clarksville, so the team can evaluate your skin and hair directly.
How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?
Even though the laser reaches hundreds of hairs during a single service, it’s most effective on actively growing hairs that are in the anagen phase. Every single hair on your body is at a different stage in the growth cycle, and to effectively reach all of them during their own unique anagen phases, you’re going to need multiple laser hair removal sessions.
Most laser hair removal treatment packages from Women’s Health Center of Clarksville include a series of about three to eight sessions. For optimal results, each visit needs to be about four to six weeks apart, depending on your hair growth pattern. Laser hair removal sessions are fast and require no downtime, so you can even schedule appointments during your lunch break.
