Ask Cheryl: Laser Hair Removal...a One-shot Deal?

Q:  I am sick of waxing am consideringlaser hair removal for my legs, and my husband is thinking about it for his hairy back.  What is involved, is it a one-shot deal?

A:  LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS by using light energy to permanently disable the hair follicle.  The laser light selectively targets hair follicles while leaving other tissue untouched.

Since hair grows in cycles, several treatments are required.  The laser will disable any hairs that are in the active growth phase.  The remaining dormant hairs should be treated at a later date, usually in 4 to 6 weeks. Anxious to know more, live in MA?...schedule a free consultation at SkinHealth Centers in Boston, Wellesley or Chestnut Hill. 

The number of sessions will vary for each individual, but 3 to 6 treatments are usually required, sometimes more.  It depends on the area being treated as well as your hair’s density, thickness and growth cycle.

All areas of the body can be treated.  The most popular areas for women are the underarms, bikini area, and legs.  For men, the back, chest and shoulders.
