Laser Hair Removal for Unwanted Hair

How does it work? In laser hair removal, a laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light, which is absorbed by the pigment in hair follicles. This will disable numerous hair follicles and will stop the hair from growing back.

Is the treatment painful? The treatment itself can cause a slight tingling sensation, but we can apply a topical anesthesia for our more sensitive patients.

Where on the face can a laser treatment work? Most of our patients use laser hair removal for the area above the lip. Other patients may want to remove hair between the eyebrows. Still others may want to remove hair on the chin, cheeks, nose, sideburns, forehead, or jawline. Any of these areas may be targeted by our lasers at North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic.

How long do treatments take? Most of our facial laser hair removal treatments last only about 5 to 10 minutes. However, these treatments may need to be repeated every four to six weeks to ensure that the hair stops growing.

How many treatments will I need? Your metabolism, hormonal level, hair quality, and number of hair follicles can affect the outcome of the treatment, which is why you may need to repeat the laser hair removal treatment. Most often, 5 treatments completely remove the unwanted hair and prevent it from growing again.
