Laser Hair Removal Q&A

Where on my body can I have laser hair removal?

The most popular areas for laser hair removal include:

  • Lower legs
  • Bikini line
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Upper lip
  • Back

Laser hair removal is safe for nearly any area where you have unwanted hair.

Why is laser hair removal a better way to remove hair?

There are a few different reasons why laser hair removal is better than methods like shaving, waxing, or plucking.

Longevity

Shaving, the most common hair removal method, only lasts for days, and methods like waxing last for weeks at best. Laser hair removal can permanently reduce the amount of hair growth that you have in the future. While some hair may grow back, it'll be finer and lighter than before. Eventually, you'll likely be able to quit shaving or using other hair removal methods completely.

Convenience

Laser hair removal at Elite Dermatology is convenient and easy. Treatment sessions usually take only 30-60 minutes and you only need to come in once every 4-6 weeks until your treatment is complete.

Comfort

Thanks to the advanced technology of today's laser hair removal devices, you can be comfortable while eliminating unwanted hair. The laser may feel warm, and you might notice a slight snapping sensation. However, you won't be in pain and you won't have to deal with cuts from a razor or the agony of waxing.

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

This depends on your hair growth, but most patients need only 3-6 treatment sessions to get great results. Once you've achieved the results you want, a touch-up session once or twice a year can help you maintain results permanently.

When will I see results from laser hair removal?

Because your hair has different growth cycles, you'll have staggered laser hair removal sessions, about 4-6 weeks apart, to destroy each cycle of hair. After your first treatment, you'll notice the treated hairs start to fall out over about 1-2 weeks.

New hairs that grow in get treated at your next session, and after a few sessions, you'll usually notice slower new hair growth. By the time your sessions are complete, you'll enjoy smooth skin.
