Laser Hair Removal

Dealing with unwanted body hair can be time-consuming, painful, and expensive. Laser hair removal provides a cost-effective long-term solution that offers the best results over alternative hair removal methods. Pulse laser lights damage hair follicles to take care of unwanted hair at the root, resulting in smooth, hair-free skin in many treatment areas.

Cohn Plastic Surgery offers laser hair removal in South Birmingham, Alabama, at its Vestavia Hills Medspa.

  • Lighter and thinner hair regrowth

Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal provides reliable, long-lasting results for patients with unwanted hair. Laser hair removal may be an excellent option if you are tired of spending money on hair removal products such as razors, waxing, or bleaching.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Intense light beams are directed to the hair follicle during a laser hair removal session. The pigment in your hair will absorb the light from the laser, which will be converted into heat and damage the hair follicle (root). Once the hair follicles are damaged, they will stop growing, and the hair will fall out over a few weeks.

Because laser hair removal targets the pigment of the hair, it is best for patients with starker contrasts between their hair color and skin tone. Darker skin tones may be more susceptible to burning or redness from the laser, so discuss your options with your laser technician during your consultation.

Before and after your laser hair removal session, be sure to avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, sun lamps, or any kind of indoor tanning equipment.

How Long Do Laser Hair Removal Results Last?

Most patients can see optimum results after three to six sessions per treatment area. After each session, the hair will be shed from the damaged follicle. Your regrowth will be much lighter and thinner, and eventually, the hair will stop growing for a long time. Results will vary, but patients can enjoy smooth skin for several months to years after sufficient treatment.
