Laser Hair Removal Q&A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a treatment that reduces body hair growth significantly. The treatment is available regardless of your skin or hair type and avoids many of the common complaints of other grooming methods like shaving and waxing. 

Unlike shaving, waxing, or tweezing, laser hair removal can evenly remove large areas of hair at a time without leaving behind burns, cuts, or breakouts that look and feel like acne. 

You may need six or more initial sessions to remove your body hair at first. After that, you’re free to come back to Orange Coast Dermatology as needed if or when the hair begins to appear again in the future. 

How does laser hair removal work?

For effective and safe laser hair removal, the providers at Orange Coast Dermatology use the state-of-the-art inMode laser system. 

Before using the laser, your provider cleans your skin and might apply numbing cream or gel for comfort. You and your dermatologist both wear protective glasses to cover and protect your eyes.

The laser removes existing hairs by vaporizing them, making your body hair disappear before your eyes. 

Additionally, the laser reaches beneath your skin’s surface to heat and disable each hair follicle to prevent future hair growth. 

Can I remove any of my body hair with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal allows you to remove unwanted hair from almost any area of your body that you would normally shave or wax. Your dermatologist uses inMode laser technology to thin or completely remove hair on your:

  • Arms 
  • Armpits
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Face
  • Chest
  • Bikini area
  • Legs

As long as the hair has some pigment and isn’t just white peach fuzz, the inMode laser can remove it. Your provider helps you make a treatment plan to target all of your desired areas in just a few easy appointments. Just keep in mind that your individual results may vary.

If you’re frustrated by your shaving or waxing regimen and are looking for a new way to groom yourself, request a consultation for laser hair removal by phone or online today.
