Laser Hair Removal

Skin Resurfacing

Laser hair reduction, often known as laser hair removal, is a cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated light energy to target and destroy hair follicles, inhibiting or delaying hair growth. It’s a popular method for semi-permanent hair reduction and can be performed on various body areas including the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, and more.

During the procedure:

  • Preparation: The area to be treated is cleaned, and a numbing gel might be applied to minimize discomfort.

  • Laser Application: The technician or healthcare provider uses a handheld device that emits a concentrated beam of light, targeting the hair follicles. The pigment in the hair follicles absorbs the light energy, which is converted into heat. This damages the follicles, inhibiting future hair growth.

  • Sessions: Multiple sessions are usually required to achieve significant and lasting hair reduction. Hair grows in different cycles, and laser treatment is most effective on actively growing hairs. Multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart are necessary to target hair in various growth stages.

Laser hair reduction can offer long-lasting results, with many individuals experiencing a significant reduction in hair growth. However, it’s important to note that the treatment doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. Maintenance sessions might be needed over time to maintain the results.

The procedure is generally safe when performed by trained professionals. Potential side effects may include temporary redness, swelling, and mild discomfort in the treated area, but these typically subside within a few hours to days.

It’s essential to consult with a qualified healthcare provider or dermatologist to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for laser hair reduction, discuss the expected outcomes, and understand any potential risks or complications based on your skin type and medical history. Providers at Aesthetic Collective can offer these treatments for you.
