Laser Hair Removal Q&A

Be Well

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a dynamic light therapy that removes unwanted body hair. This noninvasive technique damages your individual hair follicles with heat to prevent new hair growth, but the precise technology leaves your surrounding skin unharmed.

Dr. Bowers offers laser hair removal as a more permanent approach to eliminating unwanted hair than is possible with shaving, tweezing, or waxing.

What types of body hair can I remove?

Laser hair removal is a safe approach for your entire body, especially your:

  • Face and neck
  • Arms and underarms
  • Back, chest, and breasts
  • Bikini area and abdomen
  • Thighs and legs

The innovative technology used in laser hair removal enables Dr. Bowers to treat large areas of your body like your back and shoulders in a quick in-office procedure. Addressing small areas of your face like your chin and lip only takes a few minutes.

Dr. Bowers customizes your laser hair removal treatments based on the location, texture, and color of your unwanted body hair. This hair removal technique is also effective for any hair color, even black, brown, and red, and is safe to use on all skin types.

What can I expect during laser hair removal?

The length of your laser hair removal appointment may vary from a few minutes up to an hour depending on the size of your treatment area.

To start your treatment, Dr. Bowers cleans the area, shaves any hair present, and administers a cooling gel. When he applies the laser, pulses of light penetrate the treatment site. As they reach deep inside your skin to damage your hair follicles, you may feel a mild stinging or snapping sensation.

During your laser hair removal session, you may notice your unwanted hair falling away immediately. You continue losing the remaining hair over the next few weeks. Some people experience redness, blistering, or soft scabbing at the treatment site, but this disappears within a day or two.

Because your hair follicles produce hair at different rates, Dr. Bowers might recommend up to six sessions to permanently eliminate hair growth.
