Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a therapy that uses the power of laser energy to disrupt the function of hair follicles so that they can’t hold or grow hair anymore. Laser hair removal is a permanent form of hair removal for most people.

The team at NJ Vein Care and Aesthetics Center recommends the Elite+ dual-wavelength laser to remove hair from your:

  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Back
  • Trunk
  • Chest
  • Chin
  • Sideburns
  • Upper lip

The laser’s energy targets the pigment in the shaft of your unwanted hair and also destroys or impairs the follicle that grew it. Over the next several weeks, your treated hair will fall out.

Hairs respond best to laser treatment when they’re in the earliest of their three cycles of growth. Dr. Nackman recommends an initial package of six laser hair-removal sessions to ensure that your unwanted hair is targeted in an early growth stage.

What happens when I get laser hair removal?

Depending on how large an area you’re treating, your laser hair removal treatment only takes between five and 60 minutes. Over the next several weeks, your treated hair will fall out. As you continue your treatments, you notice a reduction in:

  • Unwanted hair
  • Stubble
  • Ingrown hairs
  • Rashes

After your laser treatments are complete, you won’t need to shave or pluck unwanted hair anymore.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Your doctor calibrates the laser to target the pigment in your unwanted hair, so it doesn’t affect your skin.

However, you will feel a slight snapping sensation as the laser travels through your skin to reach the hair shaft. Most women and men say it feels like being lightly snapped with a rubber band.

After your treatment, you may notice that your skin is pink or slightly reddened or swollen. That should resolve within hours to days.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Once the follicles have been destroyed or damaged, they can no longer grow healthy hair. Though you may have some hair regrowth, it will be lighter in color and texture than your original hair.

The aesthetic team at NJ Vein Care and Aesthetics Center recommends annual or biannual touch-ups to keep your skin smooth and hair-free.
