What does laser hair removal involve?
While many facilities offer laser hair removal services, patients are advised to visit an experienced laser hair removal center – such as Troy Laser Center – for the safest experience and best results. Before the initial procedure, patients are typically advised to avoid plucking, waxing, and sun exposure for a minimum of six weeks. This will allow for the best laser treatment results.
At the time of the procedure, your laser hair removal specialist will trim the hair that is being treated and prep the laser according to each patient’s skin tone, as well as the thickness, color, and location of the hair. Next, the FDA-approved Cutera CoolGlide laser will be applied using controlled pulses of light. The laser will penetrate the skin, getting absorbed by the hair follicles. The heat expelled by the laser ultimately destroys the hair follicle and prevents its regrowth.
The Cutera CoolGlide laser offers a number of advantages. It has a longer wavelength for deeper penetration and treatment of a wide range of skin tones, including Hispanic and African-American. In addition, the CoolGlide utilizes higher energy and shorter pulse width for an optimum reduction in hair growth.
After laser hair removal treatment, your provider will discuss next steps with you, according to your personalized hair removal treatment plan. Most patients will require a series of multiple treatments for optimal results.
