Am I A Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Reducing hair follicle growth with a laser is a safe procedure that is effective for most individuals. At your initial consultation, we will discuss your concerns, needs, and goals to help decide if you should get this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal:

  • Want to reduce facial or body hair
  • Are tired of other techniques for hair removal (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
  • Have light skin and dark hair
  • Are in good, overall physical health

Laser Hair Removal Technique

At your appointment, you can lie in a private treatment room as areas of your face and body being treated are washed to remove dirt, oil, and creams. During laser hair removal, a team member will slightly stretch the skin to create a clear pathway between the hair follicle root and the laser. The energy from the laser will focus on and kill the hair follicle, which stops the hair from growing back. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to achieve your best results. Your sessions are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for hair follicles in the dormant phase to reach the active growth phase so the laser can be effective. The revolutionary technology we use at Nordstar Medical, Skincare & Laser Center is able to target the hair follicle alone to preserve the skin and other tissue in the area being treated.

Laser Hair Removal Recovery

Although this procedure is relatively gentle in nature, the treated areas of your skin may look like they have a slight sunburn since lasers are used. After your treatment, you will be able to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from strenuous activity or sun exposure for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas recover. At home following your session, we recommend soothing creams or ice packs to treat any discomfort.
