Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Hair Removal in Darien, CT
How does laser hair removal work?
A concentrated beam of laser energy is aimed at hair. The light is absorbed by the pigment of the hair follicle, which damages the follicle enough to eventually stop its growth.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Yes, laser hair removal is very safe when performed by an experienced medical professional. Our laser hair removal system – the Lumenis LightSheer Duet – is the most advanced laser hair removal device, with the lowest risk of side effects.
Is there any downtime following laser hair removal?
No, laser hair removal is a no downtime treatment. The majority of patients can resume their normal activities immediately following treatment.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
A full series of laser hair removal treatments will typically result in an 80% reduction in hair; however hormonal conditions can slow progress, or cause new hair growth.
Where can laser hair removal be used?
Laser hair removal can be used almost anywhere on the body where unwanted or excess hair is troublesome. The face, neck, chest, back, arms, under arms, legs and bikini area can all be treated safely and effectively.
How many sessions of laser hair removal will I need?
This depends upon a variety of factors; however, most clients experience the most dramatic reduction after 6-9 sessions.
Can I shave, wax or pluck before or after laser hair removal?
Shaving before or after laser hair removal is no problem at all; in fact, we recommend shaving prior to your laser hair removal treatment as it often makes for a quicker and more sanitary treatment. This is because laser hair removal damages the follicle (root) of the hair, and the follicle is intact when you shave. However, you can never wax or pluck during your laser hair removal series, as this rips hair out at the follicle; the treatment will therefore not be as effective.
