Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment that can get rid of any unwanted hair permanently. It involves using targeted laser energy that heats and destroys the hair follicle under the skin, preventing further growth.
Cosmediki Medical Aesthetics is a full-service aesthetic medicine practice that offers many beauty treatments, including laser hair removal. Dr. Stanitsas uses his advanced laser tool to remove unwanted hair from your:
If you’re tired of plucking or shaving, schedule a consultation with Dr. Stanitsas to determine how laser hair removal can help you.
Our Elysion Diode Laser can treat all skin types and colors (Fitzpatrick I-VI) and can do it 4 times faster than tradition hair removal devices and lasers.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that requires special preparation to ensure you get the best results. To prepare for your treatment, Dr. Stanitsas requests that you stop tweezing and waxing up to six weeks before your laser hair removal. These hair removal treatments disrupt the hair follicle and may affect your results.
He also asks that you avoid sun exposure before your beauty treatment. The sun makes your skin more sensitive, and you may experience hyperpigmentation after laser treatment.
You need to shave the day before or the day of your laser hair treatment. Shaving the hair doesn’t affect the follicle and may decrease discomfort during your session.
What happens during laser hair removal?
Dr. Stanitsas performs your laser hair removal at the office. Treatment time varies depending on the size of the area. For small areas like the upper lip, your laser hair treatment may take a few minutes, and for the legs, up to an hour.
While you relax in the treatment chair, Dr. Stanitsas cleans and prepares your skin and applies the laser wand to the treatment area. You may feel a snapping sensation during your laser therapy, but most patients tolerate treatment well.
What should I do after laser hair removal?
You need to continue to protect your skin from the sun after laser hair removal and follow Dr. Stanitsas’ guidelines.
Your hair grows in cycles, and you need a series of laser hair removal treatments to get the best results. Dr. Stanitsas reviews the details of your plan at your consultation.
Laser hair removal may keep your skin hair-free for months or years. And when hair does grow, it's lighter and finer.
