Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a treatment that uses concentrated beams of light to eliminate unwanted hair. You have hair follicles on virtually every part of your body, and each follicle acts as a channel between the root of each hair and the outermost layer of your skin.

The light pulsed by the laser is attracted to the melanin in your hair, which is the pigment that gives your hair its distinct color. The melanin absorbs that heat, which damages the follicle and impedes normal hair growth.

Laser hair removal is an effective way to remove unwanted hair on many areas of your body, including:

  • Legs
  • Back
  • Bikini area
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Face

You’ll need a series of initial treatments to see results, then occasional maintenance sessions to maintain your smooth skin.

Is laser hair removal expensive?

Laser hair removal does require an initial investment, but when you view the expense over the long term, its advantages become clear. To begin, all those wax strips, razors, shaving creams, depilatory creams, and trips to the waxing studio aren’t free. Even if you just use good-quality razors and shaving cream, those expenses really add up.

Then there’s the time spent dealing with unwanted hair. For some men and women, a significant part of each day is dedicated to shaving and other hair removal efforts. It’s also important to consider the razor burn, ingrown hairs, and skin irritation that often accompany traditional hair removal options.

Dr. Miller can deliver results with just a few short hair removal treatment sessions. The ability to enjoy smooth skin without thinking about the need to shave, pluck, or wax is valuable in and of itself.

Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Many laser hair removal platforms can only treat men and women with light skin and dark hair. That’s because most lasers only target melanin, and don’t do a great job differentiating between the melanin in your hair and that in your skin.

Dr. Miller uses the Triton laser, which combines the power of three wavelengths, known as alexandrite, diode, and Nd:YAG. That allows the system to target hair at varying points in the growth cycle, and to treat a wide range of skin colors.

The primary benefit of this innovative laser platform is the ability to achieve solid results with fewer sessions, something that saves you time and money. If you’re ready to learn more, schedule a consultation with Kent Miller Gynecology by calling the office or using the online tool.
