Say goodbye to unwanted hair with laser precision. Laser hair removal, a non-invasive procedure, uses concentrated light to damage hair follicles, reducing hair growth by up to 90%. Led by world-renowned physician and founder of Wound and Burn Centers of America, Dr. Hajhosseini, our team ensures exceptional care to help you achieve smooth, hair-free skin.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that targets unwanted hair using a concentrated beam of light. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair, converting it into heat. This heat damages the hair follicles, inhibiting their ability to produce new hair. This inhibits or delays future hair growth. Common treatment areas include the legs, armpits, arms, upper lip, chin, bikini line, and more. However, it’s possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area except the eyelid, eyebrows, and surrounding areas.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal works by utilizing the principle of selective photothermolysis. A laser emits a specific wavelength of light that is selectively absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicle. The absorbed light is converted into heat, which damages the follicle, inhibiting its ability to produce new hair. This process targets the melanin-rich follicles while minimizing damage to the surrounding skin. Multiple sessions are typically required to target hair follicles in different growth stages and achieve long-term hair reduction.

Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal:

  • Reduction of unwanted hair
  • Long-lasting results
  • Precision targeting of specific areas
  • Time-saving compared to traditional hair removal methods
  • Less ingrown hair compared to shaving or waxing
  • Minimal discomfort during the procedure
  • No downtime or recovery period required

Common Treatment Areas For Laser Hair Removal:

  • Legs
  • Armpits
  • Arms
  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Around the nipples
  • Bikini line
  • Most other areas except the eyelid, eyebrows, and surrounding areas

How Effective is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is highly effective, reducing up to 90% of unwanted hair. Optimal results are often achieved by individuals with lighter skin and darker hair, as the melanin pigment in the hair follicle absorbs most of the laser energy. Individuals with tanned or darker skin tones can still achieve similar results but may require more treatments.

Since laser hair removal targets the pigment in hair, it’s most effective on darker hair colors. The treatment may not be as effective for individuals with blonde, white, or gray hair because the pigment may not absorb the laser energy fully. However, our team ensures personalized care to maximize the effectiveness of laser hair removal for all skin types.

Why You Need Multiple Laser Hair Removal Sessions

Multiple laser hair removal sessions are typically required for optimal and long-lasting results. Hair growth occurs in cycles, and laser treatment is most effective on hair follicles in the active growth phase. Spacing out treatments over several weeks or months ensures that all hair follicles are targeted during their active growth stage. Multiple sessions can also catch any new hair growth that may have been dormant during previous treatments.

How Long Do The Results Last?

The results of laser hair removal can last for several months to several years. While individual experiences may vary, regrown hair tends to be finer and lighter in color. Maintenance laser treatments may be needed for long-term hair reduction. The longevity of results depends on various factors, such as hair type, treatment area, and individual characteristics. However, our team can provide personalized recommendations to help maintain the results over time.

Potential Side Effects Of Laser Hair Removal

While laser hair removal is generally safe, there are potential side effects to consider. These include temporary skin irritation, such as redness, discomfort, and swelling, which typically subside within a few hours. In some cases, there may be pigment changes, where the treated skin may darken or lighten temporarily or permanently. Rarely, more serious side effects like blistering, crusting, scarring, or changes in skin texture may occur. Our experienced team takes precautions to minimize these risks and ensure the safety and well-being of our patients.
