Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal uses concentrated beams of light that damage and destroy hair follicles, leading to a permanent reduction in unwanted body hair. Innovations in laser technology have made today’s treatment options far more advanced than those of years past.

Jazzi Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine uses a diode laser to complete laser hair removal treatments. In fact, the practice has the only diode system in the entire area, and this is why so many men and women turn to Jazzi Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine for all their laser hair removal needs.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by directing concentrated light toward your hair follicles. The melanin, or pigment, in your hair absorbs the light, and the heat the light delivers. When a hair follicle is heated to a certain level, the hair root is destroyed and blood flow is cut off to that follicle. That means the treated follicle can no longer grow hair.

Isn’t laser hair removal expensive?

Laser hair removal does require an initial investment, but the cost of this hair removal option is well worth it. Consider the money you spend now addressing unwanted hair. Good quality razors and replacement blades aren’t cheap, and the cost of wax strips and depilatory creams adds up pretty quickly. It’s also important to note that none of these methods offers lasting results, so the expense is ongoing.

There’s also the value of your time to consider. Traditional hair removal efforts require time, whether in the shower, the sink, or the salon. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, offers a lasting means of eliminating unwanted hair.   

Is laser hair removal painful?

Thanks to advancements in laser technology, laser hair removal is not a painful procedure. Many men and women report a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band as the laser pulses. Fortunately, however, the laser is equipped with cooling technology that keeps your skin at a comfortable temperature from start to finish.

The diode laser can treat a larger area of skin with each pulse, as compared with other laser systems. Treatments can take as little as five minutes, depending on the treatment area. You’ll notice a decrease in regrowth after your first treatment, but a series of five sessions is needed to achieve optimal results. You’ll find fewer and fewer hairs returning after each session.
