What is Laser Hair Removal?
It is a popular, non-invasive skin treatment that permanently reduces or eliminates unwanted hair from areas of the body using laser energy. The laser targets and destroys the root without damaging the surrounding skin. The results are generally permanent and leave the skin smoother.

Consider The Area Being Treated
The beauty of laser treatments is that it can target hair on a variety of different regions of the body. However, each area has a slightly different success rate, due to the functionality of the laser. The laser used to remove hair is designed to target the pigment of the hair follicle. This means that darker hairs are easier to target than lighter ones. So while the laser may be effective at eliminating the darker hairs in the pubic area, for example, it may simply lessen the thinner hairs on the chin. Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
Take Hair Growth Cycle Into Account
The hair growth cycle will have a direct impact on the number of laser hair removal treatments that you need. This is because the laser will be most effective at targeting hair in the first stage of growth, and not all hair will be in the same phase at the same time. Once your hair is targeted, while new hair follicles may be able to form, they will be lighter and more sparse than before.
How Does Pain-Free Laser Hair Removal Work?
The procedure uses concentrated beams of light energy to target and destroys hair follicles. This is accomplished when the light is absorbed by the follicle through heat. Depending on the follicle, it may only become partially damaged which means the treatment may need to be repeated. After a few treatments, the hair follicle is destroyed with no return of hair growth in those follicles.. The light is big so it can accommodate larger areas of hair such as legs, arms, and backs.
The main reason that several treatments are typically required is that the light can only affect the follicle during the hair growth phase. Not all hair grows in the same phase and the laser only targets hair in the growth phase or Anagen. At any given time, only 15%-20% of the body hair is in Anagen so it is necessary to perform laser hair removal several times to get all the hair in a targeted area.
Laser Hair Removal FAQs
Shaving can be a real pain. In addition to being time-consuming and inconvenient, shaving can be painful and unpleasant as well. This is why it has become so popular in recent years. At Carolina Age Management Institute we perform Laser Hair Removal with the GentleMAX™ laser from Candela. Although it is most commonly used to treat the underarms, full arms, legs, arms, bikini area, face, chest, and back, when performed by our expert laser providers, it can help remove unwanted hair from just about anywhere. To help give you a better idea of how this amazing cosmetic treatment can help patients, here are a few things laser hair removal can and cannot do.
It can be used to reduce the density and thickness of hair from a certain area instead of removing it entirely. However, this is a precise process. It’s important to see a laser hair removal expert.
It cannot remove all unwanted hair in one treatment session. Although there are some exceptions, most patients will require multiple laser treatments to achieve the results they desire. However, it’s important to remember that every patient is different, and the amount of treatments required will depend on the specific area being treated and the type and amount of hair that will need to be removed.
It can help men just as much as it helps women. It’s true. It can provide a long-term solution for patients who don’t have the time or patience to shave every day. Some guys turn to laser hair removal as a way to treat unwanted hair on areas like their chest and back.
It can provide long-lasting results. No matter how many treatments it takes to achieve the results you desire, the final results of your laser hair removal should last a very long time.
To prepare, there are several recommendations to ensure that the treatments are successful:
- Preferable to avoid tanning or sunless tanners a month prior to the treatment as the skin should be as light as possible
- Avoid waxing or plucking (eyebrows) two to four weeks prior to treatment
- Shave the area to be treated as directed the night before treatment
- Take any medications prescribed by Dr. Giordano if necessary
