Laser Hair Removal - Laser hair removal uses laser energy to reduce hair and hair growth. Laser hair removal is a long-term hair removal solution, although it does require some maintenance treatments.
Initially, three to five treatments are given every four to eight weeks, depending on the area being treated. Following the first treatments, subsequent sessions are administered, usually with increasingly longer intervals.
After a single treatment, the hair in the treated area is usually significantly reduced or thinned for a long period of time. However, it is not always completely gone and maintenance treatments are required to keep the area free of unwanted hair. Over time, the intervals between maintenance treatments may spread out to a year or even longer.
The treatment is non-invasive and there is no downtime for recovery afterwards. However, some might feel slight discomfort during the treatment that can be compared to a rubber band snapping against your skin. At Premier Dermatology, we maximize your comfort through numbing cream, cooling gel, gentle cool air and, of course, a lot of hand holding, if you need it. We use the "gold standard" of laser hair removal treatment for you using the GentleLASE Candela laser and the Palomar IPL system.
As with any other procedures we offer, your treatment plan with laser hair removal will be customized for your own unique needs.
