Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by destroying hair follicles, which are responsible for new hair growth. As the follicles heat up, their natural growth process stops and the hair is destroyed. Eventually, treated hair falls out on its own, about two weeks after treatment.

After the shedding process, treated hair grows back. But with each laser hair removal treatment you have, hair comes back lighter and finer. Over time, treated hair stops growing back altogether, leaving beautiful, naturally smooth skin behind.

Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal with Icon is so advanced that more men and women are candidates than ever before. It’s still true that laser hair removal is most effective if you have light skin and dark hair. But you may still be a candidate for laser hair removal if you have:

  • Tanned skin
  • Dark skin
  • Fine or light hair

The best way to know if laser hair removal is right for you is to schedule a consultation at Remedy Skin + Body and have an aesthetic specialist evaluate your skin and hair. If for some reason laser hair removal isn’t right for you, the team also offers clinical-grade body waxing services, so you can still get the smooth skin you want.  

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Yes! Laser hair removal is permanent, although there are some things you should know before getting started. For instance, sometimes hair is stubborn. You might have to continue shaving occasionally after laser hair removal. This is why laser hair removal is often referred to as “laser hair reduction” instead.

Women also need to be aware that hormonal fluctuations, particularly during pregnancy, can stimulate new hair growth. Don’t panic if you start seeing new hair growing in the treatment area. You can always come back to Remedy Skin + Body for touch-up treatments as needed.

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

Laser hair removal is most effective when hair is in the active growth stage, known as the anagen phase. Because every single hair in your body is at a different point in the overall growth cycle, you’re going to need multiple treatments to increase your likelihood of targeting hairs in the anagen phase.

The laser hair removal experts at Remedy Skin + Body offer personalized packages. Most men and women need about 6-8 treatments, each 2-6 weeks apart, to achieve noticeably smoother skin.

The team at Remedy Skin + Body offers personalized laser hair removal treatments to help you get smooth, silky skin. Get started on your treatments by requesting an appointment online or over the phone.
