Frequently Asked Questions About laser hair removal

What areas can be treated with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal works for men and women in nearly every area of your body where you’d like to remove unwanted hair, including::

  • Legs
  • Face
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Bikini area
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Neck and shoulders

How does laser treatment work?
Precision lasers direct light energy exactly where you want to remove hair, and they work without damaging the surrounding skin. Rapid, intense pulses of laser light target your hair follicles during a laser hair removal treatment.

The thermal energy from the laser damages your hair follicles so the hair is unable to grow back. The skin surrounding your hair follicles is left unharmed because the pigment in your hair absorbs the laser light, not your skin.

What can I expect during a laser hair removal treatment?
During a laser hair removal session, special goggles are worn to protect your eyes from the intense light of the laser. You may request a topical numbing cream to help minimize any discomfort, although most patients tolerate the treatment easily. Dr. Rozehzadeh or Dr. Gohari use a handheld laser device to press against your skin to deliver the laser energy to the area being treated.

The laser feels like the snapping of a rubber band against your skin as energy pulses penetrate to your hair follicles below the surface. Some lasers have a built-in cooling device to help keep your skin comfortable during the process. Laser hair removal takes just a few minutes to treat a small area, like your upper lip or underarms. Larger areas like your legs, back, and chest may take an hour or more.

After the treatment, your skin may be red, like you have a mild sunburn, but this usually goes away in a few hours. You should avoid the sun for a few days after treatment. Because hair grows in cycles, most men and women need several laser hair removal treatments to achieve ideal results.
Once your hair is gone, it shouldn’t grow back, and you can put an end to time-consuming shaving, waxing, and plucking. The results are long-lasting, and for many, a permanent solution to removing unwanted hair.*

If you’re in South Plainfield or a nearby area, take the first step toward the time-saving option of removing unwanted hair forever. Call or schedule a laser hair removal consultation using the online booking system today.
