Anyone who is tired of shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, may want to consider laser hair removal. For the procedure to be effective, there must be some contrast between the hair color and the skin color. Ideally, the hair needs to have pigment. Patients with medical conditions, allergies, certain medications, and recent tans may have an adverse reaction to the laser treatment or find that it’s not very effective. This is why a
consultation is so important.

Laser Hair Reduction requires multiple treatments and will require maintenance. This is because the laser works best when hairs are in an early growth stage, and all the hairs are not in this growth phase at the same time. Hair in the treated area may take up to 2 weeks to fall out.

After treatment, avoid sun exposure for 7-10 days and use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Redness and and perifollicular edema (looks like a rash or bug bites) are common and resolve with time.
