What is laser hair removal like to experience?

Laser hair removal at Moradi MD is easy to experience – far more effective and less painful than older techniques like electrolysis. You will feel a snapping sensation on your skin, which in some areas may be slightly uncomfortable, based on the size of the area treated. A numbing cream can be applied to make the journey to hair-free skin more comfortable. An ice pack can also be used between pulses to help with discomfort.

How many treatments will I need?

During laser hair removal, a series of appointments are necessary, as the follicles treated are in the “growth phase” while other hair follicles are in the “resting phase”. An average of three to five treatments are needed to address the entire area, and yearly follow-up treatments may be advised.

Each laser hair removal session is spaced between three to four weeks apart to allow for your skin to recover and follicles to enter the growth phase. During the procedure, the laser can precisely target the hair follicle roots. The follicle absorbs the heat and is unable to produce hair.

What is the post-treatment experience?

Your sessions may take from 15 minutes to an hour to complete. Larger areas, such as the back, legs, or arms, take more time, as there are far more hair follicles to target. You can resume regular activity after treatment, but the area treated will feel like it is sunburned. Avoid vigorous exercise and direct sun exposure for about 24 hours to calm the skin.

After treatment 

Patients will feel a slight sting on the area that is being treated. The laser beam can sting slightly, but a cold ice pack can be applied between pulses to limit discomfort. Sessions may last 15 minutes to an hour for larger areas, such as the back. Although patients can resume regular activity after their sessions, the treated areas will look and feel similar to a sunburn. Patients should avoid exercise for about 24 hours to allow the skin to calm, and direct sun exposure should be avoided as well.

Are you a candidate for laser hair removal?

Individuals with light skin and dark hair are usually the best candidates for laser hair removal. That being said, individuals with varying skin tones and hair colors may be appropriate for the treatment. 

For the laser light to “find” the hair follicle and effectively treat it, it must “see” it. Therefore, those with light skin and light blond hair are usually not appropriate candidates.
