How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

During treatment, an advanced laser is applied directly to the treatment area, emitting short and intense bursts of laser energy precisely guided to target individual hair follicles. The laser’s energy damages the follicles, which in turn inhibits follicle growth. Laser hair removal can target unwanted hair on virtually any part of the body, and is often used to treat:

  • Legs
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Bikini line
  • Under arms
  • Arms
  • Chin
  • Upper lip

Patients can expect to notice effects soon after their first treatment session as hair growth is slowed. Because the treatment area will contain hairs in various cycles of growth, they will respond slightly differently to a single laser session. With each successive treatment the number of hair follicles will be reduced.

The Procedure

Laser hair removal is most effective on individuals with light skin and dark hair follicles, although nearly anyone with darker hair can be a good candidate. Depending on your unique follicle traits, including their number and strength, treatment may last from about 5 to 30 minutes. Some patients report feeling no discomfort, while others feel a sensation similar to a minor sunburn. After the procedure is complete, you may experience some slight redness and swelling. To help address any discomfort, patients can apply a cool pack, aloe gel, or a soothing lotion to the treatment area.

Advanced Technology for Enhanced Results

All of our services are performed in a state-of-the-art facility under the direction of Richard Moore, M.D. Our lasers are all FDA-cleared for permanent hair reduction, and Dr. Moore continuously reviews newly-released technology to ensure we are offering the safest, most effective, and most advanced treatments.

Our newest addition, the Diolaze laser utilizes an 810 diode laser, the "gold standard" for laser hair removal. The Diolaze is an optimally precise laser, providing improved results for even the most stubborn hair. It combines high peak power and a large treatment spot size with a built-in super cooling system, achieving enhanced results with virtually no discomfort. This sophisticated technology makes treatment more convenient and comfortable by offering shorter treatment times, minimized side-effects, and longer-lasting results.
