Laser Hair Reduction Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser technology has been an incredible boon in the medical industry, allowing doctors to perform myriad procedures without causing the collateral tissue damage that often came with traditional surgical techniques.

As doctors continue to explore the potential of laser technology, the cosmetic world has been reaping the benefits of using light, radiofrequency, and heat energies to correct a host of aesthetic concerns without harming your body.

At Arsenio Medical, the practice is equipped with the Elite+® laser hair removal system by Cynosure, which relies on light energy to target and destroy hair follicles below your skin without harming the surface area.

The laser hair-removal system works on almost all skin- and hair-color types, from fair to dark.

Where can I have hair removed?

The Elite+ laser system is safe to use in most areas of your body, including your:

  • Face (around your mouth)
  • Legs
  • Bikini line
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Underarms

The only place the doctors steer clear of is around your eyes.

Do I need to prepare for laser hair removal?

There’s very little you need to do to prepare for your laser hair removal at Arsenio Medical. You should discontinue any hair removal methods that remove your hair from your follicles (waxing, for example) so the doctors know where to direct the laser energy for maximum results. You can shave since you’re only breaking the hair shaft without affecting the follicle.

You’d also do well to stay out of the sun before your treatments so that you don’t darken your skin, making it more difficult for your treatment team to easily spot your hair follicles.

How many treatments do I need?

Your hair is in a constant state of growth and rest, so not all of your hair is ever out all at once. Because of this, you should count on three treatments for most areas in order to make sure that the team is able to get to all of the follicles in your target area.

The doctor spaces the treatments out by several weeks in order to allow time for any resting hair to begin its growth cycle again, which they can tackle during your second and third treatments.

To say goodbye to razors, tweezers, and waxing appointments, call Arsenio Medical or use the online scheduler to book your laser hair removal treatments.
