Laser Hair Removal Q & A

by Yaqub Baraki, MD

Permanent Hair Reduction

Lasers effectively remove hair in a short amount of time. You can have hair removed from your back, shoulders, neck, chest, underarms, bikini lines, and even toes! 

Mechanism of Action

Laser or light energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin in hair follicles and converted to heat, diffusing to and injuring stem cells in the bulb and bulge. Effective hair reduction can only be achieved during the active growth phase and hair reduction is considered permanent when a significant amount of hair does not return for a period of time longer than the complete growth cycle. After a series of treatments, most hair is removed. However, if hair does regrow it will be finer and lighter than before

Laser hair removal is a convenient and non-invasive method for reducing or removing unwanted facial and/or body hair. It leaves the skin looking smoother and silkier than waxing, electrolysis or razors and is a gentle technique that can treat larger areas very effectively and with very minimal discomfort and no downtime. Today, laser hair removal is one of the most common aesthetic procedures performed in the United States.

When to Consider Laser Hair Removal

  • Do you have unwanted facial or body hair that makes you feel self-conscious or limits your ability to wear certain clothing?
  • Do you have dark hair and light skin?
  • Are you looking for an alternative to waxing, electrolysis, shaving and bleaching?
