Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What is laser hair removal?
Are you tired of shaving, waxing, tweezing, and applying messy chemical creams to remove excess hair? Dr. Sasaki provides a multi-step program to help you obtain smooth, attractive, hairless skin.
The nurse specialists at Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center provide the most effective way to reduce unsightly hairs with the state-of-the-art LightSheer® DUET Laser System. The pigment in your hair shafts absorbs the laser beams, which destroys the growth centers and results in a permanent reduction of a majority of growing hairs.
What areas are suitable for laser hair removal?
Most areas are suitable for laser hair removal. Women commonly choose laser hair removal to address excess hair on their:
- Upper Lip
- Bikini line
Men often require laser hair removal to treat back, chest, and arm hair.
Before undergoing laser hair removal, you should have a patch test to make sure the treatment isn't going to cause any adverse reactions in your skin. This is an uncommon but possible side effect of laser hair removal.
What happens at a laser hair removal treatment session?
Your laser hair removal treatment at Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center is a convenient in-office procedure that you can fit into a busy day. You won't need any anesthetic, as LightSheer DUET has an inbuilt cooling system and features advanced technology that minimizes discomfort.
The LightSheer DUET laser hair removal system has two handpieces, one to treat larger areas and one for the more precise spot treatments. Your laser hair removal session can vary in length, depending on what you're having done. You could have both legs or your back done in around 15 minutes.
How many laser hair removal treatments would I need?
Hairs have a regular cycle of growth, regression, and resting phases. Laser energy is only effective on hairs that are in the growth phase, so multiple laser hair removal treatments may be necessary.
Each treatment removes around 20% of the unwanted hair. You need to return to Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center every six weeks for facial treatments and every 8-12 weeks to treat your body. This ensures the effective targeting of hairs during the growing phase.
