What is Laser Hair Removal?

As one of the most common elective procedures in the country, laser hair removal has proven to be an efficient method in eliminating facial and body hair. In addition to removing unwanted hair, it can also leave the skin feeling softer and smoother than before. If this sounds like something that might interest you, consider contacting Titan Medical Aesthetics in Newburyport, MA to schedule a free consultation with our staff.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is an entirely safe procedure that is suitable for most patients. However, due to the laser's reliance on targeting melanin, the best results are usually in cases with high amounts of contrast between the skin and hair. Due to this, we usually recommend the treatment for patients with pale skin and dark, coarse hair.

This procedure can be used to target many areas of the body, including:

  • Legs
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Face
  • Chest
  • Intimate areas

What is the Procedure for Laser Hair Removal?

Prior to the treatment, our staff will wash the targeted area(s) in order to ensure the complete removal of any lingering oil, dirt, and lotion. Once the area has been cleaned, you will be positioned within a direct path of the laser so the procedure can begin. The energy from the laser will destroy the hair follicle at the root, preventing it from being able to grow back.

Most patients require 4 – 5 sessions every 3 – 4 weeks in order the achieve the best results. This allows the laser to target all of the hair follicles without the possibility of missing any lying in a dormant state of growth.

What is the Recovery Process for Laser Hair Removal?

While laser hair removal is a relatively mild treatment, it can cause slight redness on the skin in and around the targeted area(s). There is no downtime associated with the procedure, which allows patients to go about their day immediately after the conclusion of the treatment. However, strenuous exercise and direct exposure to sunlight should be avoided for at least 24 hours in order to allow the skin time to heal. If there is any irritation in the affected area, anti-inflammatory creams or ice packs should soothe the discomfort.

Razors, waxes, and depilatory creams can be time-consuming, annoying, and often painful. With laser hair removal, these problems are a thing of the past, thanks to the laser restricting the long-term growth of hair follicles.
