What Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for both men and women. There are many lasers on the market, and Refined Dermatology only features the best, safest, and most effective technology. All lasers for hair removal work by aiming a concentrated light beam at the unwanted hair. The laser light is absorbed by the pigment, which destroys the hair follicle. This can stop or slow growth.

Every person is different, and results will vary from person to person. Laser hair removal may be permanent for some people, but for most people, laser hair removal stops or slows hair growth for months or years. Any person is a good candidate for laser hair removal, but the most effective treatments have been seen in those with fairer skin and darker hair.

There are many reasons people want laser hair removal. People with very dark hair, thick hair, or hair that grows quickly in unwanted areas most commonly seek out this treatment. There are also clients with intensely busy schedules looking for ways to speed up their daily grooming routine.

You will need multiple sessions to achieve the best results. However, once again, how many sessions you will need will vary. The more sessions a person undergoes, the more effective the treatment. Since most laser hair removal procedures are semi-permanent, it is a good idea to schedule regular treatments to maintain results. However, once the best results have been achieved, maintenance appointments may be recommended only every few months.

At Refined Dermatology, the Cutera Excel HR with both 1064nm NdYag and 755nm Alexandrite are available. This is one of the most effective lasers on the market, and not many clinics have it. This laser, like virtually all lasers for hair removal, can be used on nearly any part of the body.
