What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

Making the choice to undergo laser hair removal treatments can be life changing in more ways than one, from saving you valuable time each day to boosting your self-confidence. For our Boston, MA laser hair removal patients, some of the most exciting benefits include:

  • Can dramatically reduce hair growth
  • Skin often becomes smoother and clearer, as stubble, ingrown hairs, and razorburn are no longer present
  • Less need (if any) to shave, wax, pluck, or use hair removal creams
  • Saves time, money, and effort associated with other forms of temporary hair removal
  • Results can last for years or even indefinitely
  • Can be used on most areas of the face and body where hair grows

Who is a Candidate for laser hair removal?

Hair removal with the Gentle Max Pro is a process that is suitable for most individuals. During your consultation, you will go over your needs, concerns, and goals so we can determine if you should get the procedure. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:

  • Want to reduce facial or body hair
  • Want to stop using other techniques for hair removal (shaving, waxing, bleaching, depilatory creams)
  • Have dark hair and light skin
  • Are in good, overall health

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

On the day of your procedure, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are cleaned to eliminate dirt, oil, and creams. During the procedure, a technician will stretch out the skin to create a clear pathway between the hair follicle root and the laser. The laser's energy will target and kill the hair follicle, which stops the hair from growing again. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over 3 – 4 weeks to see your optimal results. Your treatments will be spaced out in order to give the treated areas time to heal. This also allows time for hair follicles in the dormant phase of growth to change to the active growth phase so they can be treated. The specialized laser technology we use at DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics targets only the hair follicle, which preserves the skin in the treated area.

What can I Expect after laser hair removal?

Although laser hair removal with the Gentle Max Pro will cause minimal discomfort, the treated areas of your skin may feel like it has a mild sunburn due to the use of lasers. When you leave our office, you are able to resume your daily activities, but you need to avoid exercise or lengthy exposure to the sun for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. At home after your session, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to treat any discomfort.

Laser hair removal FAQs

Is laser hair removal safe?
Laser hair removal is a popular procedure that uses laser energy to destroy hair follicles. This treatment is considered safe when a qualified technician uses the appropriate equipment. Potential side effects of laser treatment are typically minor and temporary. Serious side effects are rare but should be discussed with our team members.

Is laser hair removal permanent?
Though not considered permanent, laser hair removal can provide long-lasting results. Any hair that does grow back is typically much finer and lighter in color. Patients are always free to schedule follow-up laser sessions at DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics. We typically recommend touch-ups once or twice a year to maintain results.

How long does laser hair removal take?
The duration of your laser hair removal session depends on the size and location of the area being treated. Patients in Boston, MA, should allow enough time for their laser appointment, as the treatment itself should not be rushed. The good news is that each successive session usually requires less time than the first.

Does laser hair removal hurt?
Your laser hair removal session may cause mild discomfort, but it's not a painful procedure. Patients should feel a small sting when the laser targets and removes each hair follicle. We may use a local anesthetic to the surface of the skin prior to the start of the treatment session. Patients who are used to getting waxed report that laser hair removal produces much less discomfort than getting waxed.

Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair growth happens in cycles. When some follicles are in a live growing phase, others are resting. Beacuse every follicle is in a different stage, multiple treatments are usually needed to target each hair follicle when it's active. Receiving your sessions over several weeks helps you get better, smoother results.

Can the Gentle Max Pro Laser be used on all skin types?
Yes, the Gentle Max Pro Laser is suitable for all skin types. Its combination of lasers allows for the customization of treatments based on skin and hair characteristics.
