Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal uses concentrated laser light to target unwanted hair. The laser energy destroys hair follicles so they can no longer produce hair without harming the surrounding tissue, leaving your skin silky, smooth, and luxurious.

Which areas can laser hair removal address?

Laser hair treatments can permanently reduce unwanted hair from virtually any area of your body. The most common areas that the team at Hermosa Cosmetic Center treats with laser hair removal include:

  • Eyebrows
  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Legs

Laser hair removal also provides a safe, non-irritating way to address the bikini line.

Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser treatments offer permanent reduction of unwanted hair for all hair and skin types, including very light and dark skin. During your consultation at Hermosa Cosmetic Center, your provider determines your candidacy and discusses all the pros and cons of laser hair removal with you.

What should I expect from laser hair removal?

During your laser hair removal sessions at Hermosa Cosmetic Center, you recline comfortably while your provider passes the laser light applicator over the target area of your skin several times. Treatments take a few minutes to half an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. You might feel a slight stinging or snapping sensation; most patients find this tolerable. 

You can resume your daily activities right after your laser hair removal appointment. You may experience some minor redness and swelling, similar to a mild sunburn, immediately after your treatment. This typically subsides in less than 24 hours.

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

Laser treatments target hair in the active growth phase, but not all of your hair grows out at the same time. Therefore, a series of at least three treatments are needed to remove all of your unwanted hair in a given area. Based on individual factors, your provider creates a treatment plan designed to provide you with optimal results.

To banish unwanted hair and leave your skin soft, smooth, and beautiful, schedule a consultation for laser hair removal today. Call Hermosa Cosmetic Center to make an appointment or book online today.
