Laser Hair Removal

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

The laser sends pulses of highly concentrated light directly into the hair follicles, where it is absorbed by the hair’s pigments. This kills the hair and prevents future regrowth. The treatment directly affects the root of the hair and only works during the active growing phase of the follicle. To maximize your hair loss results, you should avoid waxing or plucking, as this temporarily removes the hair root and therefore makes the Laser Hair Removal treatment less effective. Most patients see a significant reduction in hair regrowth after three to seven sessions.

Preparation for your Laser Hair Removal Session

  • Avoid sun exposure and self tanning
  • Avoid plucking, waxing, bleaching and electrolysis
  • Use of chemical hair depilatory is permitted between treatments, but should be avoided 2 days before Laser Hair Removal session
  • Shaving or trimming with scissors is permitted and studies suggest that shaving directly before a session improves results
  • Clean treatment area and remove all Makeup
  • Wear loose clothing that allows you to expose treatment area; clothing may be soiled with soothing topical cream

During your Laser Hair Removal Session

  • Arrive with the treatment area shaven. We will clean area and if necessary apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area
  • You and Dr. Gligoric will have to wear protective eye gear throughout the procedure
  • Dr. Gligoric will adjust the laser equipment according to your skin tone, hair color and thickness, and treatment area and then perform a test pulse to check for adverse reaction
  • Laser Hair Removal procedures are fast, ranging from only about 1 minute for upper lip to about 1 hour for treating the whole back or legs

After your Laser Hair Removal Session

  • Your skin may feel red and irritated for 24-48 hours, similar to a sunburn or razor burn
  • You may apply ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or cool water to ease any discomfort
  • You can schedule your Laser Hair Removal Session in 4-6 week intervals to maximize your results
