Hamilton residents ask, “How effective is laser hair removal?”

Laser hair removal, an effective safe treatment

Every month, we see an increasing number of patients who inquire about laser hair removal. While hair growth is something everyone deals with in one way or another, many opt to have it removed for cosmetic reasons or convenience. For some, it’s frequent razor bumps as a result of ingrown hairs or shaving, for others it could be hormonal problems that cause an abnormal amount of hair growth. Many people are just tired of spending precious time plucking, waxing, and shaving. Regardless of the reason, laser hair removal can be a very effective way for people to drastically reduce unwanted hair.

Laser hair removal is an exciting and innovative procedure that can reduce hair on many areas of the body, Including the arms, chest, back, legs, underarm, bikini line, and face. It works by targeting hair follicles in the active growth phase. Because hair grows in cycles and those cycles change over the course of several weeks, multiple sessions are needed for full targeting of hair follicles. The exact number of sessions required depends on the location and the amount of hair removal desired. Patients who just want a reduction in hair will see final results in fewer sessions than patients who want complete removal.

Each laser hair removal session is relatively quick and easy. The laser is set to the customized settings and the target area is treated. Some patients say there is a snapping feeling while the light pulses on the skin; pain varies depending on the tolerance of the patient. There is no downtime with laser hair removal, so patients are able to return to their normal schedules right away.

While laser hair removal can’t remove 100% of hair, studies have shown that with the appropriate number of sessions, patients can enjoy up to a 95 percent reduction in hair.
