Laser hair removal at Humble Dermatology helps with unwanted hair nearly anywhere on your body. This includes all of the following:
Regardless of where your unwanted hair is, talk to Humble Dermatology practitioner Dr. Egesi to find out whether laser hair removal is right for you.
Dr. Egesi applies a topical anesthetic for your comfort and then treats each follicle individually using a laser hair removal machine. You may feel a slight snapping or some warmth, but it's typically a comfortable process.
The machine’s laser energy transforms into heat as it enters your hair follicles. The heat then causes controlled damage to the follicle, rendering it unable to grow new hair.
Every case is different, but most patients need a series of between 2-6 laser hair removal sessions. Your laser hair removal treatments at Humble Dermatology are usually at least a month apart. This allows enough time for your treated hair follicles to shed, and for your next active growth cycle to start.
It depends on the situation, but most patients experience a major reduction in hair growth for months or even years. Although the hair can eventually grow back, regrowth is usually much lighter in color and texture. You may need maintenance treatments at an interval recommended by Dr. Egesi to stay hair-free.
A Humble Dermatology team member gives you a list of preparation guidelines ahead of your appointment. Typical recommendations are:
Although you can't use other hair removal methods in the weeks before your laser hair removal, shaving is typically fine because it doesn't alter the follicle. Shaving just before your laser hair removal also reduces the chance of surface skin burns from hair damage.
