Laser Hair Removal Q & A

LACCMA Beauty

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal targets hair follicles that are in the active growth phase, known as the anagen phase. Since hairs in the anagen phase are rapidly developing, the laser can easily target them and heat them up. This disrupts the growth process on the spot.

Over the following 2-3 weeks, your treated hair sheds on its own. It’s probably going to grow back a few times, but after each laser session, treated hair comes back finer and lighter — until it stops growing.

Laser hair removal treatments with Cynosure® Elite+™ are noninvasive, non-surgical, and can tone and condition your skin, leaving beautiful softer skin behind.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Yes and no. After each laser hair removal treatment, hair is less and less likely to grow back. How effective laser hair removal is depends on how your body responds to the laser, as well as your hair and skin color. Treatments are most effective if you have darker hair and lighter skin.

Laser hair removal drastically reduces hair growth within a few short sessions. Sometimes you do have some additional hairs that don’t respond to the laser, although they’re still lighter and finer after several treatments.

Women sometimes experience new hair growth because of hormonal fluctuations. If you become pregnant or go through menopause, for instance, the changes in your hormones can lead to new hair growth, even though the area has been treated. You can always come back to LACCMA Beauty for touch-ups if this happens.

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

When you come into LACCMA Beauty for your laser hair removal evaluation, Dr. Iluore lets you know about how many sessions you’re going to need. Most men and women need six to eight laser hair removal sessions, each about 4-6 weeks apart, for optimal results. If you have very dark, coarse, or stubborn hair though, you could need additional sessions.

Because laser hair removal is quick and virtually painless — thanks to the Elite+ cooling system — you can easily squeeze in your laser hair removal sessions during your lunch break.
