Laser hair removal works by emitting light energy into hair follicles to destroy hair at the roots. Dr. Burger uses the Quanta System laser to precisely heat the hair follicle without hurting your skin. This treatment breaks down the pigments in the root of the hair shaft, inhibiting growth and causing the hair to fall out. This prevents regrowth of unwanted hair as well.
Laser hair removal can be performed in the following areas:
Laser hair removal works best on dark, coarse hair, though it is safe for all skin and hair types.
Laser hair removal is a permanent option for removal of unwanted hair. While the initial sessions may take longer than shaving or tweezing, the results are permanent and generally don’t need to be touched up, unless desired.
Laser hair removal is also a much quicker procedure to remove hair than waxing. You may find that the pain is less than the discomfort of waxing, too.
Before your laser hair removal session, you may be asked to shave the hair from the treatment area and avoid wearing perfumes or lotions that may interfere with the laser. Once you’re comfortable, Dr. Burger gives you protective eyeglasses to wear.
Dr. Burger places the handheld laser device against your skin and pulses the laser light on and off briefly. You may feel a pinching or stinging sensation when the laser is on. Dr. Burger moves the handheld device over your skin, applying pulses of light across the entire treatment area. Depending on the size of the treatment area, your session may last five to 30 minutes.
After your session, you can return to your normal activities. Your skin may be sensitive to touch and should be protected from sunlight for 24-48 hours after treatment.
Yes, laser hair removal is a permanent solution to unwanted body hair. You’ll typically need a series of four to six visits in order to see complete results. After each visit, you’ll notice that your hair growth becomes thinner and finer until it no longer grows back.*
