Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How long does laser hair removal take?

Laser hair removal at Medical Arts Associates P.S. can permanently remove hair from any body area, including sensitive areas like your face.

The laser’s energy can only destroy the follicle when it’s in an active growing phase. Though the growth phase is long, each follicle eventually transitions into a dormant stage. When that happens, the existing hair falls out, and the follicle rests briefly before growing hair again.

On any given day, 10%-15% of your follicles are dormant and not affected by the laser. And they all come back online at different times.

You need several laser hair removal sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart to catch all the hairs in a growth phase. However, the number of sessions you may need depends on the treatment area. Your provider can give you an estimate during your initial consultation.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Most people say the laser bursts feel like a rubber band snapped against their skin. But each person’s sensitivity is different. What’s painful for some feels like nothing to others.

Your provider can apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort during each laser session.

What should I expect during laser hair removal?

The length of each session varies. Removing the hair from a small area like your upper lip may only take a few minutes. Larger areas, such as your back or legs, take significantly longer. 

Most people have slightly swollen and red skin after laser treatment, but it doesn’t last long. It also shouldn’t stop you from returning to your usual routine as soon as you leave the office.
