Laser Hair Removal Reviews
Am I a candidate for Laser Hair removal?
Hair removal with a laser is a gentle treatment that is suitable for most individuals. In your initial consultation, you will talk about your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Laser hair removal is great if you:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Want to stop using other hair removal techniques (shaving, waxing, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Are in good, overall physical health
We can provide you with a consultation with Dr. Porter. He will assess your skin and give you an estimate on how many sessions you might need to get the desired results.
Our Laser Hair Removal Technique
On the day of your laser hair removal session, you will relax in a private treatment room as areas of your skin are cleaned to eliminate oil, dirt, and lotions. We take pride in only employing professionals with experience offering laser hair removal. During your Pronto Dual Diode laser treatment, your laser technician will stretch out the area to create a clear path between the laser and the hair follicle root. The energy from the laser will target and kill the hair follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over 3 – 4 weeks to see your optimal results. Your appointments will be spaced out in order to allow the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase to cycle into the active growth phase so the laser can be effective.
What to Expect
While the treatment is mostly gentle, the treated areas of your skin may feel like you have a mild sunburn due to the use of lasers. After your treatment, you will be able to resume your daily activities. You need to avoid heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for a period of 24 hours to let the treated skin heal. At home following your treatment, we suggest anti-inflammatory creams or ice packs to minimize any discomfort. We can schedule your subsequent laser hair removal sessions at your request.
