Laser hair removal uses highly concentrated light to non-invasively penetrate hair follicles and inhibit future hair growth. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle. Laser hair removal can be used on most parts of the body. Laser hair removal only affects actively growing hair follicles, so it may take several treatments to provide significant hair reduction. While laser hair removal efficiently slows hair growth, it does not guarantee permanent hair removal. You may need periodic maintenance treatments.
When you come to Kraig Jenson, PC, Dermatology Center for a consultation, our dermatologists will discuss the following with you:
- Your goals
- Medical conditions, drug allergies, and medical treatments
- Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco, and drug use
- Previous surgeries
We will explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have.
During the procedure, Drs. Jenson and Edwards use a beam of highly concentrated light to target unwanted hair follicles. There is some mild discomfort, but it does not last long. Hair grows in cycles, so it usually takes three to four laser hair removal treatments to provide significant hair reduction.
