Laser Hair Removal Q&A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the many aesthetic treatments available at McCurtain Family Medical Clinic. It’s a more permanent solution for getting rid of unwanted hair.
They use the laser device to get rid of unwanted hair from many parts of your body, including your:
- Bikini area
Trained by the National Laser Institute, the family medicine providers at McCurtain Family Medical Clinic are experts in laser treatments and laser hair removal. The practice also uses advanced laser treatments to remove sun spots and varicose veins.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal is a light-based treatment that destroys hair follicles and stops them from growing. During your laser hair removal, your provider places the laser tool over the treatment area, and the light energy targets the pigments in the hair follicle.
The energy heats and destroys the follicle without damaging any of the surrounding skin or tissue.
What can I expect during laser hair removal treatments?
Laser hair removal is an in-office treatment. Your provider at McCurtain Family Medical Clinic develops a personalized treatment plan specific to your aesthetic needs and goals. They review the details of your plan during your consultation so you know what to expect.
During your treatment, you recline in the exam chair while your provider moves the laser tool over your skin. You may feel a snapping sensation when the light-based energy heats the hair follicle.
For patients sensitive to pain, the providers at McCurtain Family Medical Clinic apply a numbing lotion on your skin before starting laser hair removal to minimize discomfort.
Treatment time depends on the location and size of the area undergoing hair removal, but usually takes less than an hour.
Your skin may be red and swollen after your laser hair removal, but these side effects disappear quickly. The laser experts at McCurtain Family Medical Clinic recommend you protect your treated skin from the sun with clothing or sunscreen.
How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?
You can expect to see a gradual decrease in hair thickness after your first session. However, hair grows in stages, and you need a series of 3-7 treatments set at 4-8 week intervals to get the best results.
