What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is the most in-demand aesthetic service available. Treatments are designed to disrupt the hair growth cycle, so body hair growth is dramatically reduced — permanently.
During your laser hair removal session, a handheld laser instrument from the Fotona platform is strategically moved back and forth over your targeted area. Fotona’s intense Nd:YAG laser energy targets hairs with rapid bursts of energy.
The pigment in the root of your hair absorbs this laser energy, causing a heat reaction. As the root heats up, the growth cycle stops and the hair is rendered useless. Within a couple of weeks, treated hairs wiggle out of your pores and shed away.
It’s true that hair treated with laser hair removal platforms does grow back. But each time it does, it’s finer, lighter, and more sparse. Eventually, your hair growth is dramatically reduced.
How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?
As powerful and effective as the industry-leading Fotona laser platform is, it’s really most beneficial when hairs are actively growing (anagen phase). But every single hair on your body is at a different point in the growth cycle, meaning you need multiple visits to effectively target each hair.
At New Canaan Podiatry, Dr. Tauber evaluates your skin and hair to determine how many treatments you’re likely going to need. In most cases, laser hair removal packages include 4-8 monthly sessions, although you could need additional visits if you have thicker or more coarse hair.
Does it hurt to get laser hair removal?
If you’ve ever had to pluck or wax unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is going to be a breeze. Usually, laser hair removal clients explain that the laser feels like rapid flicks of tiny rubber bands. While the sensation might be uncomfortable, particularly in delicate areas, it’s very well tolerated.
But Dr. Tauber doesn’t want you to stress about pain or discomfort. After all, you should only be thinking about your upcoming smoother skin. She welcomes you to come into New Canaan Podiatry about 20-30 minutes before your scheduled laser hair removal session to apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.
