Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal uses targeted laser energy to eliminate unwanted hair at the root. Unlike shaving and waxing, laser hair removal is a permanent solution for unwanted hair. 

At Deborah Freeman MacDonald, R.E. Inc, the team uses the cutting-edge Candela™ GentleLASE laser, which focuses on varying depths, to give you the safest, fastest, most accurate laser hair removal treatment possible.

How does laser hair removal work?

When the laser emits its energy directly into your hair shaft, the pigment (melanin) inside it absorbs the light. The light energy then converts to heat, which permanently damages the follicle that produces the hair.

Over your series of sessions, the hair either stops growing or begins growing lightly. In most cases, laser hair removal reduces unwanted hair by up to 80-90%.

How long does laser hair removal take?

How long laser hair removal takes per session depends on the areas you want to treat. You can treat nearly any area on your body, including:

  • Sides of the face
  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Back of the neck
  • Hairline
  • Legs
  • Fingers and toes
  • Bikini line

Depending on the area you choose to treat, each session can take up to 60 minutes or more. You may need anywhere between 6-10 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart to get the results you want.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Most people agree that laser hair removal is more painful than shaving but less painful than waxing. After your first session, laser hair removal becomes more comfortable and progressively less painful.

Once you’re finished with your sessions, you may never have to shave or wax again. For those who do, shaving is very infrequent and rarely needed.

How long until I see results from laser hair removal?

While you may need several treatments to permanently eliminate your unwanted hair, most people start seeing their hair fall out within 1-3 weeks of their first session. As you continue your treatments, your hair will become progressively thinner, finer, and lighter.

Laser hair removal is the ideal treatment if you’re ready to stop painful waxing or time-consuming shaving. To learn more, call Deborah Freeman MacDonald, R.E. Inc, or schedule an appointment online now.
