Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal targets the growth center of each individual hair. Each burst of light is absorbed by hair pigments and instantly the follicle heats up to a point where the hair can no longer grow. Destroyed hair sheds out within a couple of weeks, and your body hair growth cycle is forever changed.

It’s true that hair does grow back, but each time you have laser hair removal, hair grows back finer and lighter until most of it stops growing entirely. These effects have a number of benefits, including:

  • Saving you time on daily hair removal processes
  • Eliminating your risk of burns from hot wax or nicks from shaving
  • Making your skin appear more even-toned (no more blotchy body hair)

Laser hair removal has can even target large patches of hair during each visit. So if you need to remove hair from broader areas, like your back, treatments are much quicker than lengthy waxing sessions.  

How many laser hair removal sessions are needed?

Nostalgia Family Medicine is home to one of the most advanced laser hair removal systems on the market. You should notice treated hair falling out and visibly smoother skin within the first couple of weeks after your first session.

For optimal results and to target each hair during the most active growth cycle phase — the anagen stage — Dr. Fletcher usually recommends anywhere from four to eight laser hair removal sessions. It’s important to schedule each visit at least four weeks apart.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

All of the hair reduction you experience from laser hair removal offered by Nostalgia Family Medicine is permanent. Sometimes among hormonal fluctuations, natural effects of aging, and changes in your body, new hair starts to grow in a treated area.

Of course, if you ever notice new hairs growing, which happens after pregnancy sometimes, you can safely have the area re-treated again.
