Laser Hair Removal Q&A

Why laser hair removal?

Most of us hate the ritual of shaving or waxing because it is time consuming and expensive.  On average, a person will spend a total of 72 days in a lifetime shaving or $20,000 on waxing.  Laser hair removal destroys the follicle, resulting in a long-term, low maintenance solution for unwanted hair.  

Who is a candidate?

Laser hair removal treats brown and black hair. Grey, light blonde and red hairs will not be treated because they do not have the melanin required to absorb the laser waves in the root of the follicle. At Magnolia Dermatology, Jennifer uses the Darwin Luvo BARE 808 laser to effectively remove hair on on skin types. 

How do I prepare and what can I expect?

Jennifer recommends the treatment area be shaved one day prior to treatment.  Most patients report that the laser pulse during treatment is minimally painful and tolerable. Treated hair will fall out about 10-14 days after each session.

How many treatments will I need?

On average, most people will require 6 treatment sessions to acheive optimal results.  This number does vary from person to person.  After the first session, 10-25% hair reduction is expected. 

Which areas can be treated?

In general, any area of the body that is growing pigmented hair is amenable to treatment.  Some of the common sites that we treat are under arms, bikini line, face, and back.
