Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

With laser hair removal, you get a way to put the ongoing to-do of hair removal behind you. Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches offers this innovative hair removal treatment to give you a long-lasting, dramatic reduction in unwanted hair. 

The advanced, safe, and effective laser can remove hair from your:

  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Face
  • Bikini area

If you have unwanted hair on your body, don’t hesitate to visit Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches to see if laser hair removal is right for you. 

How does laser hair removal work?

During laser hair removal, your Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches provider directs laser energy into your hair follicles. The laser picks out the follicle from the surrounding skin, targeting it with energy. 

Because the laser needs to discern your follicle from your skin, this treatment is most effective for people with dark hair and light skin. It’s also important not to tan before your appointment. 

As your hair follicle absorbs the laser energy, it heats up to the point that it’s destroyed and can no longer grow new hair. 

With laser hair removal, your Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches provider can treat an area about as large as a quarter every second. This treatment is quick and effective, and your provider can treat even large body areas like the legs or back in an hour or less. 

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

It depends on your hair and your hair growth patterns. The laser only effectively destroys hair follicles in the active hair growth phase, also called the anagen phase. Only some of your follicles are in the anagen phase at any given time. 

Your Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches provider uses repeat treatments, spaced several weeks apart, to target as many of your follicles in the anagen phase as possible.

Once treated, the laser should permanently destroy the follicle. Hair follicles that have long laid dormant can start to grow new hair in the future, though, meaning you may need periodic touch-up treatments. 

Laser hair removal at Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches provides long-lasting smooth, hair-free skin, no shaving or waxing required. Call the office closest to you or schedule an appointment online to find out if laser hair removal is right for you.
