Diode laser hair removal is an effective treatment. Many patients will find that their hair is removed long-term. The diode laser hair removal involves minimal discomfort.
Diode laser hair removal can be permanent following a course of treatment customized to your needs and hair type. Since not all hair is in a growth phase at the same time, it may be necessary to revisit certain treatment areas to permanently remove hair.
Once hair has been completely removed from areas of the body, it will only grow back under very rare circumstances such as a significant hormonal change.
The number of laser hair treatments you should schedule depends on the area that needs to be treated. In most cases, very significant results can be seen in 3-5 treatments. It may be necessary to have 10-20 treatments at different times for complete and permanent removal.
When laser hair removal is done correctly, the risk of side effects is extremely low. We customize the laser settings to your complexion and to the area of the body being treated.
In most cases, patients undergoing laser hair removal on the face or neck area will have their skin cooled with a cloth or cream shortly after treatment. There may be slight redness, but this should not progress to swelling. Cosmetics should not be used immediately following treatment.
Laser hair removal is extremely safe for facial areas. The laser pulse used on the face is much gentler than the pulse used in other areas of the body where the skin is thicker. If you feel uncomfortable with the strength of the laser at any given time, it can be adjusted immediately.
It’s normal to feel some slight discomfort, such as in sensitive areas (like your underarms), but you shouldn’t be in pain. Most men and women explain that laser hair removal feels like tiny rubber bands flicking your skin.
