Razors are used to remove unwanted hairs from our body, and most of us use them regularly for the sake of hair removal. There is no doubt that razors do remove these unwanted hairs, but in this process, your skin gets severely damaged by the strokes of sharp razor blades. This is because shaving is a form of physical exfoliation that impacts the health of your skin. Inflammation, razor burn, ingrown hairs, and razor bumps are just some of the traumas that a razor can cause. Laser hair removal is the perfect answer to these concerns, and while providing us with a genuine solution to the problem of excessive razor use.
Will Laser Hair Removal work for me?
Laser hair removal works for men and women and on all types of skin including tanned skin and skin of color. Permanently reducing hair with laser treatments is available to all, even those with darker skin, as long as your treatment is performed by practitioners who truly understand the technology and limitations of what can and cannot be accomplished. During your consultation at Skin MD, we will go over all of the options and take the time to ensure you understand what your personalized treatment plan will include. Proper expectations are important when receiving aesthetic services and hair removal is no different. The technologies behind this treatment have changed dramatically in the past 10 years, so if you were not a candidate years ago, please schedule a consultation and explore how things have changed!
Does Laser Hair Removal Work for Facial Hair?
YES! Facial hair removal at Skin MD can significantly slow down and permanently reduce the regrowth of facial hair for both men and women. For permanent cessation of facial hair regrowth, it may be necessary to have a few treatments. After each treatment, our patients should gradually see less and less hair grow back until the area remains smooth indefinitely. Typically, we ask that patients space treatments 6-8 weeks apart until the unwanted hair no longer appears.

What is the difference between Laser Hair Removal vs Waxing?
Laser treatments and waxing both remove unwanted hair, however, unlike waxing, laser treatments offer permanent reduction of unwanted hair. If you choose the laser hair removal path, you will notice thinner, lighter hair in between treatments. Hair follicles are addressed directly with laser treatments, reducing the follicles hair production ability over time. Waxing may slow down the regrowth process, but the hair follicle is not destroyed, so hair will continue to grow back just as thick. While waxing per treatment may be less expensive, the difference is ten-fold over time. With laser treatments, you do not have to have an uncomfortable wax every 4 to 6 weeks for the rest of your life. Smoother skin can be yours!

How does Laser Hair Removal work?
The procedure is simple and quite painless; light passes through the skin down to the hair follicle, where the energy is absorbed. This heats the follicle to a critical temperature, safely destroying the hair while maintaining the integrity of your skin. Skin MD uses the most advanced high-speed, dual-wavelength lasers available today. A series of treatments is always recommended, because hair follicles are on different growth cycles. We must treat consistently over time, to ensure we treat the follicles during the proper growth phase.
How long does a laser hair removal treatment take?
The short answer is – it depends. It depends on the size of the area being treated and how well your body reacts to the treatment. For example, laser hair removal on the upper lip area only takes a few seconds, while areas such as your full legs or your back can take up to 30 minutes. This is one of the treatments that depends on the area treated. Fortunately, our laser hair removal is virtually pain-free and requires absolutely no downtime. (except for your actual appointment time!)
How many treatment sessions of Laser Hair Removal will I need?
Another question that many people have is about the number of sessions required to fully reduce/eliminate hair. This also depends on the size of the area and how well your body reacts to the treatment, as well as on your hair and skin type. Because we offer state-of-the-art laser technology, we’re able to remove unwanted body hair that has pigment with fewer treatments compared to other laser hair removal services.
Hair grows in cycles. Since many hairs will enter the growth cycle at different times, about 6-8 treatments are typically initially recommended to destroy most of the follicles in a given area.
However, we cannot say definitively how many treatments it will take without seeing you in person. However, during your consultation we will discuss your hairiest concerns and come up with a treatment plan exclusive to you and your hair-free goals.
