Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

What are your favorite things about summer? Swimming, hiking, and hitting the beach are some of our favorite things to do when the temperatures start to spike.  But, if there’s one thing we hate, it’s shaving. Ditch that razor and enjoy silky smooth legs summer, fall, winter, and beyond. Ask us about laser hair removal.

Does Laser Hair Removal Offer Permanent Results?

Laser hair removal isn’t permanent, but it’s as close as you can get. It provides results that last much longer than traditional hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams. Most patients notice a lasting reduction in hair thickness and quantity that can last for several months to several years. You can enjoy less hair for life with maintenance treatments.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is an excellent option for many patients, but it doesn’t work well for everyone. It may be right for you if:

  • You have unwanted hair on the face, underarms, legs, bikini line, arms, back, shoulders, abdomen, etc.
  • Your hair is darker than your skin (laser hair removal may not work well on patients with blonde, gray, or red hair).
  • Your skin isn’t overly tan (tanned skin can lead to adverse skin reactions).

Many patients opt for this because they experience skin irritation from other hair removal methods. The pain and irritation after a laser hair removal experience are typically less than that with other methods like shaving and waxing.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

You’ll notice an approximate hair reduction of about 30% after each treatment. You’ll need a series of them to achieve your full results. Three or more treatments are typically needed in each treatment area. Some patients come in for an occasional touch-up session to maintain their results.
