Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal involves the delivery of laser energy through the surface of the skin. This energy targets the pigment in the follicles that produce hair. By destroying the structure of the follicle, hair can no longer grow.

The team at SilkySkin Laser Center can safely treat unwanted body hair that grows on your:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Underarms
  • Throughout the entire body

The Elite+ laser system by Cynosure is powerful but gentle enough to eliminate unwanted body hair in the delicate bikini area.

What can I expect during laser hair removal treatments?

During your laser hair removal treatment, the SilkySkin Laser Center providers help you get comfortable. You can expect to sit or lie down on an exam table while your provider applies the handheld laser applicator to the surface of your skin in the treatment area.

Many people tolerate laser treatments well and report that treatments feel similar to the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. The SilkySkin Laser Center also offers the SmartCool technology that works with the Elite+ laser system. SmartCool provides cycles of cooled air on your skin to increase your comfort during treatment.

Following your procedure, you can return to your usual activities without any limitations. You should use a high-quality skin moisturizer to prevent flaking and dryness and use sunscreen every time you go outside, as your skin will be extra sensitive after treatment.

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

Because the Elite+ laser system can only treat hair in the active growth phase, you can expect to need several laser sessions to effectively eliminate all hair in the treatment area. Once the laser energy destroys the hair follicle, new hair can’t grow, so your results will be long-lasting.

Your SilkySkin Laser Center provider can determine how many sessions you need based on the size of the treatment area and the thickness of your hair. In general, four to eight treatments scheduled several weeks apart are necessary to achieve optimal results.

Laser treatments are most effective on dark-colored hair because the laser targets pigment in the hair follicles. Laser Hair Removal will not work on gray, white, red, and light blonde hair.

If you’re ready to have smooth, hair-free legs or want to remove other areas of unwanted body hair, schedule a laser hair removal consultation by calling the team at SilkySkin Laser Center.
