Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

The principal benefit of laser hair removal is its long-lasting effects.  After several sessions, many people experience a significant reduction in hair growth and, in some cases, permanent hair removal.  This can save an individual valuable time and money compared to traditional hair removal methods, which typically need to be performed every 2 to 4 weeks.

Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

Good candidates for laser hair removal are individuals that have darker hair.  Because the laser reacts to the melanin in the hair, patients with darker hair typically see better results.  Individuals with light hair, red hair, and gray hair may not respond as well to laser hair removal.

Secondly, someone who is committed to the process makes a great candidate for laser hair removal.  Because this treatment requires several treatments spaced out over several weeks, it is important to understand that hair reduction does not occur after a single treatment. 

Our Laser Hair Removal Solution

At Blue Ridge Dermatology, we use The Gentle Pro laser hair machine from Candella.  Candella is a leading global medical aesthetic device company that has been in the US since 1970.   The Gentle Pro laser hair removal machine has several advantages, including:

  1. Comfortable: The Gentle Pro uses a cooling system to reduce discomfort during the procedure.  This makes it a good option for people with low pain tolerance.
  2. Fast treatment time: The Gentle Pro is designed to treat larger areas quickly, making it a good option for people who have limited time to dedicate to the procedure.
  3. Options: The Gentle Pro uses multiple laser wavelengths, which makes it an option for use on several skin types.
  4. Effective: The Gentle Pro uses a combination of laser wavelengths to target the hair follicles, resulting in long-lasting hair reduction.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal

  1. How does laser hair removal work?  A: Laser hair removal works by emitting a laser (light) which is absorbed by the melanin (pigment) in the hair follicle.  The light energy damages the hair follicle, slowing down hair growth and eventually leading to permanent hair removal.
  2. Is laser hair removal safe?  A: Laser hair removal is generally considered safe, but like any cosmetic procedure, it has some risks and side effects.  The most common side effect in our practice is temporary redness and swelling around the treated area, which normally resolves within a few hours.
  3. Is laser hair removal painful?  A: Most people report that the procedure is relatively painless, with just a slight warming sensation.  Pain tolerance may vary from person to person, but most people find the procedure to be relatively comfortable.
  4. When will I see the results?  A: The process of laser hair removal typically involves several sessions, as hair grows in cycles, and not all hairs are actively growing at the same time.  The number of treatment sessions required to achieve your goals will depend on each individual and the laser hair removal device being used.  However, most people see a significant reduction in hair growth after 3 to 7 sessions.
  5. Is laser hair removal effective on all hair types?  A: Laser hair removal is most effective on dark hair, as the laser light targets the melanin in the hair.  Light hair, red hair, and gray hair may not respond well to laser hair removal, as there is less melanin for the laser to target.
  6. Can laser hair removal be performed on any part of the body?  A: Yes, laser hair removal can be performed on almost any part of the body, including the legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, face, neck, back, and chest.
  7. Is there downtime after laser hair removal?  A: There is usually no downtime after laser hair removal, and most people can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Wrapping Up

Before deciding on laser hair removal treatment, it is important to consult with an experienced licensed aesthetician to determine if it is safe and appropriate for you.  Some medical conditions, such as pregnancy, certain medications, and skin disorders, may make laser hair removal unsafe.

It is important to note that the efficacy of any laser hair removal machine will depend on many factors, including the skill and experience of the operator, the individual’s hair type and skin color, as well as the number of treatments required.  It is always best to consult with one of our licensed medical aestheticians before undergoing any medical aesthetic procedure.
