Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal uses light energy to reach hair follicles, eliminate hair at the treatment site, and reduce future hair growth. The laser is a targeted, pulsating light that passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in your hair follicle. The heat of the laser damages the follicle, limiting or preventing future hair growth.

Laser hair removal efficiently slows hair growth for an extended period; in some cases, removal is permanent. Because hair follicles cycle through phases of growth and inactivity, you will usually need multiple sessions to treat a particular area effectively.

Laser hair removal works best for those with darker hair and lighter skin, though Dr. Thakur will consult with you about whether laser hair removal would be an effective treatment for you.

What are CuteraⓇ and CynosureⓇ?

Dr. Mrudangi Thakur uses both Cutera and Cynosure lasers to remove unwanted hair, depending on your procedure and the treatment area.

The Cutera laser system helps deliver laser hair removal treatment quickly and efficiently to large areas, such as the back or chest.

Cynosure lasers offer two different wavelengths in the same system, so Dr. Thakur can efficiently treat each area with the most effective laser strength. With the versatility of the Cynosure laser, she can also address multiple areas of the body at once.

Dr. Thakur will help you decide which treatment option is right for you and your goals.

Can men get laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the most common procedures requested in the United States by adults of all ages and genders, and it can help men feel more confident in their bodies the same way it helps women. Laser removal of back hair is particularly popular among men.

Dr. Thakur can perform laser hair removal in numerous areas, including:

  • Face (chin, lips, cheeks, etc.)
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Legs
  • Abdomen
  • Bikini Line
