Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What are the benefits of laser hair removal? 

Laser hair removal treatments at the Center for Women’s Health are performed with the Cutera laser, a unique system equipped with cutting-edge laser technology and a built-in cooling system. This revolutionary laser technology targets hundreds of hair follicles at a time, making treatments short, safe, and painless. 

Laser hair removal is faster and more comfortable than electrolysis, and there’s no downtime following treatment. And laser hair removal is effective for all hair types and skin tones, including suntanned skin. 

Which areas can be treated with laser hair removal?

The experienced professionals at the Center for Women’s Health can remove hair from all areas of the body. Some of the most common areas for laser hair removal include:

  • Upper lip
  • Eyebrows
  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Back

Hair removal with the Cutera laser can even be performed on sensitive areas such as the chest, nipples, and bikini line.

What should I expect during a laser hair removal procedure? 

The innovative Cutera laser system is equipped with a special handpiece that cools and soothes your skin as it glides over the target area. 

You may experience some mild pinching during the procedure, but most patients do not find this to be painful. If you have very sensitive skin, your provider can apply a topical anesthetic gel before beginning the treatment.

Most people can return to normal activities immediately after their appointment. Mild side effects such as redness or swelling are possible, but these typically subside within a few hours. More severe side effects are rare. 

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need? 

Laser hair removal works by targeting the follicles of hair that is actively growing at the time of treatment. Because hair growth occurs in cycles, a series of treatments is necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in one area. 

The number of treatments required also depends on the texture of your hair, the area to be treated, and the duration of your hair’s unique growth cycle. Most of the time, a series of 3-6 treatments are needed for optimal results.
