Laser Hair Removal

What is laser hair removal and who benefits from treatments?

We have seen firsthand how frustrating and inconvenient temporary hair removal can be. The unwanted, excess hair can be quite annoying to keep maintaining and often the temporary hair removal methods can severely irritate the skin.

The overall upkeep can also be painful at times, because you are exposing your skin to irritating products. Whether you are using razors, hot wax, creams, or another form of hair removal, you are likely not happy with the results and experiencing harsh side effects.

Instead of using time-consuming and temporary removal methods that can cause pain, burn, itch, and stubble, it’s time to find a permanent hair removal solution.

Finding a provider you trust is important, and here at Astoria Laser Clinic and Medspa, we use the most up-to-date revolutionary lasers to treat hair removal. Our system works on a large number of hair follicles at once which gives you results quicker.

Laser hair removal is non-invasive and safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and surrounding tissues of the skin. 

What can I expect during the consultation and treatment process?

During your complimentary consultation, our team will assess your skin, goals, and patient history to determine a personalized treatment plan for you. As a general rule, several treatment sessions will be required, and you can expect to see a 50% reduction in hair growth after just one treatment. 

Smaller areas such as the face or bikini area usually take under 30 minutes to complete in one session while larger areas like the legs will take a bit longer. It’s important to note that hair grows in cycles, and laser hair removal treatments are only effective when it comes to the actively growing cycle. This means that consistent treatments at appropriate intervals are absolutely necessary to achieve your desired results. 

It’s impossible for one laser hair removal treatment to be effective because each individual hair goes through three stages of hair growth independently. This is why several treatment sessions are needed to ensure permanent and long-lasting results. While results always vary, patients typically find they can get up to 20% reduction of hair per treatment session, so more than 6 may be needed for desired results. 

The number of treatment sessions recommended depend on:

  • Skin
  • Color of hair
  • Coarseness of hair
  • Density of hair per treated area

During your consultation, we will discuss what to expect before, during, and after the course of treatment. It’s required that you stop plucking, bleaching, or waxing hair for several weeks before treatment for the laser treatment to be effective. 

Following treatment, you can return to your normal daily activities right away. Redness is a normal side effect, and we recommend using sunscreen on the treated areas that will be exposed to sunlight. We may also recommend any skincare products to use during the duration of your treatment plan.
