Laser therapy uses intense but gentle light beams to target your hair follicles beneath your skin. The laser works to damage your hair follicles so they’re less likely to grow back in the future.
Because not all of your hair grows at the same rate, your hair follicles are in different stages of growth. While some of your hair follicles could be in the growth phase during your session, others could be in the dormant phase and won’t respond to that specific treatment session. This is one of the reasons Dr. Hensel requires multiple sessions to achieve your desired results.
Laser hair removal has many benefits, including:
Dr. Hensel can use laser therapy to remove hair on your back, chest, arms, legs, and even your face. You can eliminate the daily need to shave your face altogether.
Dr. Hensel can target unwanted hair without damaging your surrounding skin, making laser therapy a safe and gentle option.
Each pulse of the laser can treat many of your hair follicles in a fraction of a second. Dr. Hensel can treat small areas like your upper lip in less than a minute. Larger areas, like your back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Usually, Dr. Hensel’s patients see permanent hair loss after four to six sessions. The size of your treatment area, as well as your hair type, determines the number of sessions you’ll require to achieve permanent hair reduction. If you do experience a little regrowth after laser therapy, your hair will be finer and lighter in texture than it was before.
The length of your session depends on the size of the area you’re looking to remove unwanted hair. However, each session tends to be short and has minimal side effects. You'll experience nothing worse than the redness, itching, and cuts that can occur from shaving or waxing.
You can return to daily activities immediately following your laser therapy.
Men with dark, coarse hair and lighter skin tones are often the best candidates for laser hair removal.
