Laser Hair Removal

Hair Removal Procedure

Laser hair removal is a noninvasive technique that uses highly concentrated light to penetrate hair follicles and inhibit future hair growth.

What are the steps of a laser hair removal procedure?

Your plastic surgeon may perform the laser hair removal procedure, or may delegate this to a nurse or other licensed provider.

A beam of highly focused light is absorbed by hair in disabling unwanted hair follicles. There is some mild discomfort that last a few seconds. People with white or gray hair may not have enough pigment target to be a candidate for laser hair removal.

Because hair grows in cycles, it typically takes three to four laser hair removal treatments to provide significant hair reduction.
