Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal uses heat energy to destroy the targeted hair follicles and inhibit hair growth permanently. You can achieve smoother, hair-free skin in a series of treatments.

Each zap from the machine sends laser energy through the pigment in the hair to create heat and damage the follicle and hair bulb.

The laser technology available at Healing Touch Medical delivers energy to the skin 30-50 times faster than other lasers, so you can enjoy the most effective and efficient results.

Who’s a candidate for laser hair removal?

If you have unwanted hair anywhere on your body, schedule an appointment with Dr. Kaur to determine if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal. This treatment is especially effective if you have dark hair and light skin but also works on many hair- and skin-tone combinations.

Laser hair removal may be less effective when you have a tan, so winter and spring are great seasons to have this done.

What areas can be treated with laser hair removal?

Any areas of your body where you have unwanted hair can successfully receive laser treatment, including:

  • Bikini line
  • Arms and legs
  • Back and chest
  • Chin and upper lip
  • Underarms

Certain areas require more treatments than the others due to the texture of the skin and hair.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

The sensations you experience during your laser hair removal session are typically well tolerated but may be a bit uncomfortable. Your friends who’ve had this done would probably describe it as the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin.

Ask Dr. Kaur about numbing creams and other strategies to make the sessions as pain-free as possible.

How many treatments will I need?

Since hair grows in cycles, multiple treatments are necessary. The exact number of treatments you need depends on the area treated, your skin tone, and the density of the hair. Usually, a series of several treatments spaced over a six-month period delivers the best results.

If you have unwanted hair that you’re tired of waxing and shaving, calling Healing Touch Medical or book an appointment online to learn how laser hair removal can help you achieve permanently smoother skin.
