Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a long-lasting alternative to shaving, waxing, bleaching, and plucking. After a few treatment sessions, your hair regrowth significantly lessens. The hair that you do grow typically comes back finer and lighter. Because the procedure uses a laser, it is noninvasive and requires no downtown.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses a laser, or strong beam of light, to target the pigment in your hair. As your hair absorbs the light, it becomes heated, and the follicle damaged. The damage to your follicle delays hair regrowth for an extended period of time.

Laser hair removal works with any hair color, but because the pigment in your hair attracts the laser, laser hair removal is usually more effective on patients with hair that is darker than their skin.

FamilyMed Centers offers the Icon™ laser for laser hair removal. Because the Icon laser is gentle and effective, you don’t have to worry about damage to your skin.

Which areas can I target with laser hair removal?

With laser hair removal, you can target any area that you would normally shave. Both men and women get laser hair removal in these areas:

  • Back
  • Limbs
  • Chest
  • Shoulders
  • Armpits
  • Face
  • Bikini area

The only area that you shouldn’t target with laser hair removal is your eyelids because of their proximity to your eyes.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

There are many benefits to choosing laser hair removal over waxing, shaving, and plucking. Beyond having long-lasting results, laser hair removal:

  • Is cost effective (compared to buying razors and waxes)
  • Is precise
  • Doesn’t leave nicks or bumps on your skin
  • Is a quick procedure
  • Requires fewer appointments over time
  • Causes minimal or no discomfort

The results of laser hair removal are predictable, too. Once you’ve started coming in for treatment sessions, you know what to expect and when to schedule upcoming appointments for maintenance.
