How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Whether you want to kiss shaving goodbye or just get your body ready for the warmer weather, let’s take a look at how laser hair removal works, and what you can expect from your laser hair removal treatments.

Here’s How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal is an innovative treatment that uses the power of laser light energy to essentially “halt” your hair growth.

Here’s how it works: During a laser hair removal treatment, a special laser device will be passed over your desired treatment area. The technology will emit waves of laser energy to the hair follicles within the targeted area. The hair follicles will absorb the laser light energy and heat up; as a result, the follicles will overheat and eventually fall out at the root. 

Your hair follicles will grow back after the first laser hair removal treatment, but here’s the key: the regrowth rate will be much slower than it was before.

Over time and with repeated treatments, your follicular regrowth will slow to the point that it takes months – even years – for you to see any growth again.

In fact, most laser hair removal clients only need one or two maintenance treatments every year to continue to enjoy silky-smooth, hair-free skin.

Areas that Can Be Treated with Laser Hair Removal

The most popular areas that can be treated with laser hair removal include:

  • Legs
  • Arms 
  • Bikini Line
  • Abdomen
  • Chest 
  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Chin
  • Upper Lip
  • And more!

People with coarse, dark hair against light-to-medium skin tones tend to do the best with laser hair removal sessions.

What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal Results

Most people need about eight laser hair removal treatments to see results; some may need up to twelve, depending on how well their body responds to the treatment. At Twin Ports Dermatology, we offer package pricing and offer touch ups for a smaller fee.

During your initial sessions, you’ll notice your hair regrowth start to slow down. This slow-down will be far more noticeable about halfway through your treatment regimen. 

After your treatment regimen, you can expect the following results:

  • Smooth, hair-free skin
  • Slowed hair regrowth
  • Increased self-confidence
  • And more!
