Laser Hair Removal Q&A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a quick, energy-based treatment to eliminate unwanted hair permanently. Research shows that three treatments with the Candela hair removal technology can remove as much as 80% of hair in your treatment area, although results vary. The Candela technology works quickly, making it ideal for large treatment areas, such as your legs.
Laser hair removal is appropriate for both women and men. The treatment also works on most skin tones, from light complexions to olive skin tones.
During your initial consultation with the team at Humble Cardiology Associates, they discuss laser hair removal for your skin type, along with the results to expect.
How does laser hair removal work?
With dual wavelengths of laser energy, Candela technology targets and destroys the hair-producing follicles in your skin. After treatment, the follicles slowly stop growing hair or produce less hair than before. The result is virtually hairless skin after a series of treatments.
What areas does laser hair removal treat?
Laser hair removal reduces or eliminates hair on most areas of your body, including your:
- Bikini area
The treatment also removes unwanted hair on your back.
What happens during laser hair removal?
Your provider at Humble Cardiology Associates preps your skin for treatment. They may trim or shave the hair in your treatment area before applying a numbing cream. The cream ensures you remain comfortable throughout your treatment.
You and your provider typically wear goggles to shield your eyes from the laser light. Your provider holds the Candela device over your treatment area. As the laser moves across your skin, it may feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin, followed by a burst of cooling. Cooling treatment is designed to maintain your comfort. Your provider moves the device quickly, so any discomfort is fleeting.
Treatments are typically over in just a few minutes. For example, treating your bikini line may only take 10-15 minutes. Of course, a larger area takes a bit longer.
For optimal results, your provider at Humble Cardiology Associates suggests a series of treatments. Hair grows in stages, so multiple treatments are needed to zap all of your hair follicles in their active growth phase.
What happens after laser hair removal?
Any hair that grows back looks thin and sparse. You gradually have less and less hair in your treatment area, resulting in a smoother, virtually hair-free appearance.
