What is Laser Hair Reduction?

Laser Hair Reduction is a safe, effective, and non-invasive procedure that uses a laser, or a concentrated beam of light, to remove unwanted hair. The pulses of light target the pigmented hair follicles reducing future hair growth in that area. With each treatment the hair becomes lighter and finer.

What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Reduction?

Some of the benefits of Laser Hair Reduction include:

  • The treatment is quick and virtually painless.
  • Any area of the body can be treated.
  • It is a longterm solution to decrease body hair.
  • There is no downtime.

What Can I Expect During My Laser Hair Reduction Treatment?

When you visit Scottsdale Skin Boutique & Dermatology for Laser Hair Reduction, our laser certified technician will first examine your skin and discuss your skin goals to determine if the treatment is a good fit. Your skin will be cleansed and you will wear protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the bright light of the laser. Next, a generous layer of cooling gel will be applied to the area before treatment starts. Our expert technician will hold your skin taut while treating with the laser handpiece. The length of each appointment will vary depending on the area being treated. Once the treatment is complete, all remaining gel will be removed, and the area will be wiped clean. Most patients report minimal to no discomfort during treatment.

What Can I Expect After My Laser Hair Reduction Treatment?

It is possible that you might notice redness and slight swelling for the first few hours after your Laser Hair Reduction treatment. To reduce any discomfort, you may apply ice to the treated area. Avoid direct sunlight and apply your sunscreen daily.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Reduction?

The best candidate for a Laser Hair Reduction treatment is an adult with a lighter skin tone and darker hair. The laser needs to see a contrast in color between your skin and the unwanted hair that is being treated. However, darker skin tones can also be successfully treated. You will need to avoid sun exposure and self-tanning products within two weeks prior to any treatment.
