Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a proven method for removing your body hair. This modern, noninvasive, and safe treatment can take the place of shaving, waxing, plucking, or sugaring in your routine if you prefer smooth, hairless skin.
Unlike other hair removal methods, the results of laser hair removal are long-lasting. Furthermore, it doesn’t result in ingrown hairs, razor burn, rashes, and other complications resulting from other methods.
During a laser hair removal session at Moulton Group PC, a laser light heats your hair follicles. The pigment within your hair follicles absorbs the light, which damages the follicles and inhibits their growth.
What should I expect during the laser hair removal process?
Before a laser hair removal treatment, you should protect your skin from the sun and avoid certain skin treatments, including other hair removal methods. Your provider at Moulton Group PC might still recommend that you trim the treatment areas before your appointment.
You’ll need an initial series of several laser hair removal procedures in order to target each of your follicles while they’re in the growth phase. The team at Moulton Group PC uses a Cutera® laser for hair removal, which provides a virtually painless hair removal experience.
The hairs fall out in the days or weeks after your treatment. While results vary, your hair won’t grow back for a while after your initial series of treatments. For most people, it eventually does, but it is finer and lighter in color. You can get maintenance treatments at Moulton Group PC as you need them.
Which areas can I target with laser hair removal?
Using laser hair removal, you can remove the hair from nearly any part of your body that you normally wax or shave. Many people choose to target one or more of the following areas:
- Chin and jaw
- Bikini area
Your provider helps you create a treatment plan and can tell you how long each of your sessions will take based on the size and number of areas you want to target. With Cutera, laser hair removal works on all skin types and tones. You can also speak with your provider about using Cutera laser treatments to target and eliminate spider veins from your skin’s surface.
