When done properly, laser hair removal produces permanent results in about 80-90% of patients. This means that hair will never grow back. In addition, some patients with difficult-to-treat hair find that they can achieve excellent results by receiving follow-up treatments once or twice a year.
No. Laser hair removal does not harm the skin, and it does not cause pain. The modern laser used at The Age Confidence delivers highly targeted energy only to the hair follicles while simultaneously cooling the surrounding skin.
The laser targets the dark pigment found in the hair follicles. The laser energy is absorbed by the follicles and converted into heat, which permanently damages the follicle. However, the laser effectively destroys only those hairs that are in the active growth phase. Because individual hair grows at different rates, several treatments are necessary to successfully destroy all hair follicles. Most of our patients need 4–7 treatment sessions, spaced about 3–6 weeks apart.
Immediately after the treatment, your hair will look about the same. Over the next 7–30 days, the damaged hair follicles will expel the last remnants of the weakened hair. Thus, you will see hairless skin in a few weeks.
Yes. You do not have to let your hair grow in between treatments, unless your laser hair removal technician recommends otherwise.
Yes, laser hair removal is generally safe for the face because it does not damage skin cells. Many of our female patients have successfully got rid of embarrassing hair on the chin and upper lip, and many male patients have successfully removed excessive hair growth from the upper face.
Yes. In fact, laser hair removal is commonly used for the bikini area because is produces permanent results and is not painful like waxing. In fact, laser hair removal can be used on any area of the body, including legs, belly, chest and back.
People with very light skin are usually good candidates for laser hair removal, especially if they have darker hair. People with very dark skin tones require extra caution when performing laser hair removal. This is because the darker pigment in their skin is more susceptible to the laser wavelength used to treat hair follicles. Similarly, if you have a deep tan you might require extra caution. Talk with our highly experienced laser hair removal technician to determine whether laser hair removal is safe for you.
Yes. In fact, a combination of dark, coarse hair and lighter skin tones is ideal for laser hair removal. Blonde, gray and red hair are more difficult to remove because they have little pigment in them.
At Age Confidence, all laser hair removal procedures are performed by fully trained, highly experienced, dedicated laser hair removal technician. She has treated thousands of patients and have an excellent track record of delivering outstanding results.
Both laser hair removal and electrolysis are effective at permanently removing unwanted hair. However, laser hair removal is much more efficient for large areas (such as legs, chest and back) because it treats many hairs at a time. Electrolysis, on the other hand, only treats one hair at a time and is therefore appropriate for small areas. This difference also makes electrolysis very expensive for larger body areas.
Laser hair removal normally does not produce any side effects. However, some patients experience minor swelling, redness and light burning sensation immediately after treatment. These side effects can be alleviated by using ice packs and over-the-counter pain medications.
In very rare cases, laser energy can cause burns similar to a bad sunburn, blisters and scabs. Other possible complications include infection and changes in skin color (lighter or darker patches of skin). However, the vast majority of laser hair removal patients experience no complications and are highly satisfied with their results.
People suffering from serious skin conditions, such as psoriasis or dermatitis, are usually not candidates for laser hair removal. In addition, pregnant women and people who have a pacemaker should not pursue this procedure. Individuals who take certain medications, such as Accutane and Retin-A,are also not candidates.
