Ideal Candidates for Laser Hair Removal
Reducing hair follicle growth with a laser is a gentle procedure that can help most people. During your consultation, we will go over your needs, concerns, and goals to help decide whether you should get this treatment. Ideal patients for laser hair removal treatments tend to be those who:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Want to stop using other hair removal methods (waxing, shaving, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have darker hair and lighter skin
- Are in good overall health
Our Laser Hair Removal Technique
On the day of your appointment, we'll ask you to relax in one of our treatment rooms while we clean the areas of your face and body being treated to eliminate oil, dirt, and creams. During the procedure, a technician will stretch out the target area to create a direct path between the hair follicle root and the laser. The laser's energy will target and destroy the hair follicle, preventing the hair from growing back. Usually, you'll need 3 – 5 treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. We space sessions out in order to allow the treated areas a chance to recover, as well as to allow time for follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to cycle into the active phase of growth so that the laser can be more effective. The state-of-the-art laser hair removal technology we use at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery targets only the hair follicle, thus preserving the skin and other tissue in the area being treated.
What to Expect after Laser Hair Removal
While this procedure is relatively gentle, your skin may feel like it has a light sunburn when lasers are used. After your session, you can return to your daily activities, but you should refrain from strenuous activity and extended time outdoors for at least 24 hours to let the treated skin recover. When you get home after your session, we suggest applying soothing creams or cold packs to treat any discomfort.
