What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a permanent solution to remove unwanted hairs by using laser technology. The laser targets pigmentation in the hair itself and penetrates beneath the skin to precisely destroy individual, active hair follicles. The laser targets only the hair, so the surrounding skin is not damaged in the process. Once the follicle is destroyed, the hair will not regrow.
Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?
Both men and women can benefit from laser hair removal. At Ellemes Medical Spa, we provide safe and effective laser hair removal treatments for both light and dark skin individuals. The ideal laser hair removal candidates should be in good health and have reasonable expectations for the treatment. Hair removal is a process that involves several treatments at intervals, and patients will need to commit to multiple sessions in order to get satisfactory results.
What can I expect during a laser hair removal treatment?
During the laser hair removal treatment, patients will need to wear eye protection. No anesthesia is required for laser hair removal treatments, but topical numbing cream may be applied depending on the sensitivity of the area being treated. The provider will target the treatment area in one-inch increments until all active hairs have been treated.
What areas can be treated with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal technology is so advanced that almost any area of the body can be treated safely. However, the most common areas for treatment are the legs, armpits, bikini area, back, and face. Many patients elect to have multiple areas treated.
Is laser hair removal safe for darker or black skin?
Laser hair removal works best on people who have a deep contrast between their skin and hair color. However, darker skinned patients may be eligible for laser hair removal. It is up to you and your provider to determine if laser hair removal is right for you.
Can all hair colors be treated with laser hair removal?
Very light hair with little pigment, such as gray or white hair, will be almost impossible to treat. Red and blonde hair can also be harder to treat successfully.
Is laser hair removal permanent? Does hair grow back?
Laser hair removal works by heating the hair follicles to stop new hairs from growing. When the hairs do grow back, they’ll be lighter, finer, and fewer in number. Although the procedure is often touted as a form of “permanent” hair removal, laser treatment reduces the number of unwanted hairs in a given area. It doesn’t get rid of unwanted hairs completely.
Can men get laser hair removal?
Absolutely! Men are also candidates for laser hair removal. At Ellemes Medical Spa, we see men regularly for laser hair removal. Popular areas that we treat for men include beard and neck lines, back of the neck, the face, cheeks, arms, legs, and underarms.
