What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that removes unwanted body and facial hair by permanently destroying the follicle with a concentrated light beam. Safe and fast, the goal of laser hair removal is to leave patients with silky, smooth skin lasting for several years without making upkeep appointments such as waxing. It is possible to treat almost any area of the body, with the exception of sites around the eyelid and certain body art such as tattoos. While incredibly effective, initially, you may require several sessions (as many as six to eight for unique cases) to remove unwanted hair permanently. If you’re interested in laser hair removal, choosing a reputable New Jersey practice specializing in the procedure is essential. Are you tired of shaving and plucking every day?

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Prior to your laser hair removal session, a specialist will thoroughly clean the treatment area. In some cases, if the patient is overly sensitive, a specialist can apply a numbing gel for added comfort during the session. The laser itself uses a high-energy beam of light to destroy follicles so that hair does not grow back permanently, so you will be asked to wear protective eye gear during the treatment.
Once the laser is applied to the treatment area, the time of the session will depend on the size of the region you wish to remove. Certain areas such as the underarm, may only take about 15 minutes. In preparation for your session, your specialist will provide you with instructions for your session to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the hair removal process. Typically, you will be asked to avoid waxing, plucking, and suntanning a few days prior to your appointment. Believe it or not, laser hair removal is currently one of the most common cosmetic treatments in the country.
What Is the Recovery
for Laser Hair Removal?
There is relatively no downtime associated with laser hair removal. Most patients will return to their typical day immediately following their session. Patients may be asked to wear sunscreen following their appointment if they plan to be in the sun to prevent any irritation. Patients will notice a reduction in the amount of hair in the targeted area directly following the treatment but oftentimes it may take three to eight sessions to fully remove all the unwanted hair due to the different growing phases of each follicle. Once you meet with a specialist, you will have a better idea of the timeline and number of sessions you may require.
Who Is a Good
Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Anyone with a desire to remove unwanted facial and body hair is a good candidate for laser hair removal. However, because pigment melanin is what attracts each laser, individuals with darker hair and lighter skin will notice the most dramatic results. Your specialist will choose a laser based on your skin tone and area you wish to be treated to ensure the laser detects the hair correctly.
