Laser Hair Removal Q & A

Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates LLC

The Elite Aesthetic Workstation is built on two clinically proven wavelengths—the 755 nm Alexandrite and 1064 nm Nd:YAG lasers and combines a state-of-the-art device that uses cool air to further reduce any discomfort. By providing two different wavelengths, the Apogee Elite laser can be used to treat even the most stubborn cases, including clients with darker skin and coarse hair. And it does so without causing undue pain or unpleasant skin changes and scarring.

How do lasers remove hair?

Lasers send out an intense beam of light that penetrates through your skin and reaches down to hair follicles. Then heat generated by the laser damages the follicles. Since follicles regulate hair development, future hairs won’t grow from a damaged follicle.

When you visit Dr. Shahabadi for laser hair removal, she’ll explain that you’ll need more than one treatment. This is because hair follicles go through cycles: Each strand of hair grows for about 3-5 years, then it falls out and the follicle rests for 3 months before beginning to grow new hair. Lasers only affect the follicle when the hair is actively growing and since each follicle is on a different time schedule, you’ll continue to regrow some hair until all follicles are treated during a growing phase.

Who can use laser hair treatments?

When you get laser hair removal at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associations, your treatment comes from state-of-the-art laser equipment. As a result, our laser hair removal treatments are safe and effective for all skin types. You can schedule laser hair removal for most parts of your body, including your face, neck, back, chest, and bikini area.

Why is it important to choose an experienced dermatologist?

Lasers are extremely powerful beams of light that can be dangerous and cause unintended damage. When used by an inexperienced clinician, the laser may burn or scar your skin. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates, your care comes from Dr. Shahabadi and her staff who are certified in laser hair removal, extremely skilled, and have years of experience. While minor side effects are expected following laser treatment, you don’t have to worry about the results when your laser hair removal is performed by their competent hands.
