FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT EXACTLY IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser Hair Removal is a safe, FDA-approved, and effective method of removing unwanted hair. Laser technology entails directing powerful beams of light into specific hair follicles. The light is transformed into heat in the process and then absorbed by the cells in the follicles, effectively destroying them while sparing the surrounding tissue. Despite the fact that laser hair removal has a reputation for being painful, all StudioMD equipment includes skin-cooling devices for improved patient comfort and quicker results.
DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK FOR INGROWN HAIRS?
The only method for removing ingrown hairs that is actually effective is laser hair removal. Because it directly addresses the source of the issue: the root or hair follicle. When the follicle no longer produces hair, the affected region of ingrown hair will begin to heal, leaving your skin smooth and undamaged. Furthermore, because most people who have ingrown hairs also have scarring, the sooner you treat the region, the less likely you are to develop any kind of scarring.
WHAT SKIN TONES ARE SUITABLE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Thanks to our extensive selection of lasers, which includes FDA-approved Candela's GentleLASE® and GentleYAG, Cynosure Elite, and Cutera's Xeo technology, we are able to provide laser treatments to people of all skin tones at StudioMD. The GentleYAG is appropriate for medium to darker skin tones, and the GentleLase Pro is best for fair to medium skin tones. Both devices also offer the best options for treating laser veins (spider veins), laser genesis, sun spots, freckles, age spots, IPL treatments, and ingrown hairs.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE THE RESULTS?
You'll probably see the effects of laser hair removal immediately after the first session. Results may vary from patient to patient, however the majority of patients have a 10%–25% hair loss reduction after the first cycle of treatment. Most people require between 2 and 6 laser treatment sessions to get rid of all hair from the treated skin for several months or even years. And even If hair grows back in some areas, it tends to be finer and lighter in color.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
The type of hair, skin, and body area being treated will determine how long your treatment will take. However, most individuals require treatments at 4-6 week intervals. The amount of hair reduction varies depending on what stage your follicles are in at the time of the treatment because each portion of the body and face has a different growing cycle. Your StudioMD laser professional will evaluate your particular needs during your complimentary consultation and go over a regimen that will help you achieve your goals.
