Say Goodbye to Unwanted Hair

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Treatments for Laser Hair Removal in Carmel use light energy to kill hair follicles, often on the legs, back, underarms, or face, with the aim of preventing most hair from coming back. Even if it might not be permanently removed, the hair that does regrow is usually much finer and less apparent.

So Long to Waxing, Picking, and Shaving

What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

With Laser Hair Removal Carmel patients can stop worrying about the need to be constantly waxing, picking, or shaving your body, making your life easier by getting rid of that manual labor. It’s also effective at removing and preventing ingrown hairs. The laser precisely locates and eliminates hair while causing no harm to the surrounding skin, making it just as easy on your body as it is effective.

Know Your Options

Am I a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

If you have a high level of contrast in the color between your skin and hair, your body would benefit most from this therapy because the contrast makes it simpler for the laser to target the pigment in the hair follicle. For less contrast, different lasers are able to meet similar standards.

For example, if you have a dark complexion and dark hair or a fair complexion and light hair, your results won’t be as dramatic. On the other hand, combinations like light skin and dark hair, and vice versa, see stronger results. Learn more about your potential as a Laser Hair Removal candidate by consulting Dr. Luerssen.

Customized to Your Goals

Your Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Dr. Luerssen will first decide which sort of laser is ideal for your skin and hair with respect to your intentions. Be sure to communicate any medications you’re taking and any illnesses you might have. Before starting, the laser will be customized to your skin tone and hair density. You'll be given specific eye protection to prevent eye harm from the laser. Dr. Luerssen may add a cooling device or cold gel to protect your skin and aid the laser's efficiency.

The laser emits a focused beam of light during Laser Hair Removal treatment to damage the hair follicle and stop new hair growth. You could experience a warm, prickling feeling when the laser moves over your skin. After your session, you may be offered anti-inflammatories or cold packs to reduce swelling and ease discomfort.

Comfort and Confidence

Laser Hair Removal Recovery

Dr. Luerssen is committed to making sure you have a solid recovery plan so that you’re able to feel secure and confident with your treatment. You may need to apply cold compresses or a mild moisturizer for a day or two following treatment if your skin still feels and looks burnt. If the Laser Hair Removal includes your face, you could apply makeup the next day as long as your skin doesn’t feel irritated.

Avoid hot showers or saunas, deodorant (if you've had your underarms lasered), and perfume during the first two to three days. Especially avoid being in the sun—be sure to apply sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 whenever you expect to have any sun exposure. If you received treatment below the belt, wait at least one day for the swelling to fade before any sexual activity.

Shave Away the Worries

Laser Hair Removal Results

After six to eight sessions (ideally spaced four to six weeks apart) you’ll notice a considerable decrease in the amount of hair left at the site. After every treatment, the developing hair follicles are killed—the follicle receives less blood, and the hair that does regrow will weaken and shrink over time.

The hair will eventually fall out, even if it won't always happen right away. When a hair is laser-cut, some of them fall out immediately, but others may continue to grow and fall out over time. Although treatment doesn't always result in permanent hair removal, our Carmel Laser Hair Removal will permanently reduce hair growth.
