If you’ve always wondered what laser hair removal is and if it’s right for you, we’ve put together our answers to the top five questions we hear about the procedure. Read on to learn more.

What is laser hair removal?

Non-invasive and safe, laser hair removal uses highly concentrated light to remove unwanted hair from the body and face. Men and women alike can benefit from the procedure, which has a good track record of clinical success.

What happens during laser hair removal? Does it hurt?

As the laser light penetrates hair follicles and is absorbed by the hair shaft’s pigment, it damages the follicle and inhibits future hair growth. The procedure only affects actively growing hair follicles, so you could need four to six treatments to achieve substantial hair reduction.

Our modern laser hair removal system is needle and anesthesia-free and designed to keep you comfortable. If your skin is especially sensitive, talk to the nurse about your options for making the treatment as ouch-free as possible. For most people, the treatment feels like a tingling or tickling sensation, and how intense they are typically depends on the area being treated. Post-treatment, your skin could be a little red, but this goes away quickly.

What results can I expect from laser hair removal?

At Napa Solano, we work with you to customize a treatment plan for the areas you want to become hair-free. Even for people with sensitive skin, our laser hair treatments are the relaxed way to say goodbye to hair in the following areas:

  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Armpits
  • Back and chest
  • Upper lip
  • Face

By choosing laser hair removal, both men and women can spend less time getting rid of unwanted hair.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Many people ask if the hair removed by laser treatment will grow back. As the laser targets and deactivates hair follicles, new hair growth is not anticipated. If there is regrowth, it’s typically thinner and fairer than the original hair and simply requires a quick touchup for more permanent results.
