Laser Hair Removal Q & A

by Audrey Bruell, M.D.

How does laser hair removal work?

During laser hair removal, Dr. Bruell directs a concentrated beam of light at the patient’s hair. The pigment in the hair absorbs the light, which damages the follicle. Once damaged, the hair won’t grow back for several months or even years. The laser hair removal process targets the hairs specifically and without damaging the surrounding skin.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal eliminates the need for waxing or shaving the treated area. Dr. Bruell uses advanced techniques to target small areas with precision. In addition, this treatment option is ideal for patients who are prone to razor bumps.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Patients may feel a small pinch during the treatment. However, most patients can tolerate laser hair removal. After the procedure, skin in the treatment area may be red and sore. Patients use moisturizers and cool compresses to alleviate discomfort.

When do results appear?

Following laser hair removal, hair typically falls out over the next month. In some cases, multiple treatment sessions help achieve the desired result.

Will hair grow back?

After laser hair removal, the hair may eventually grow back. For some patients, regrowth of removed hair occurs in a few months. For others, hair removed during treatment may never return.

Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is best for patients with dark hair and lighter complexion. However, laser hair removal can also be effective for other patients. Dr. Bruell explains the expected results to patients before they agree to the procedure.

How much does laser hair removal cost?

The cost of laser hair removal varies considerably based on the size of the treatment area, as well as other factors. Dr. Bruell provides a detailed quote to patients before scheduling laser hair removal.

How should patients prepare for laser hair removal?

During the 6 weeks immediately before the procedure, patients should avoid waxing, plucking, and electrolysis in the treatment area. Patients should also avoid exposure to the sun during this time.
