How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser Hair Removal CT | Hartford | Avon | Windsor

Let’s talk about Laser Hair Removal for a second. We have received 100’s of questions about whether or not Laser Hair Removal actually works. One of the most requested treatments at Transformations Med Spa & Fitness is our laser hair removal option. Now, keep in mind that everybody will have a different experience so let’s get to it!

How does laser hair removal actually work?

This treatment uses a cosmetic laser that has settings so it can be adjusted to both your hair and skin type. The laser selectively targets your hair follicles to heat them up to damage them while keeping your skin safe. This kills the follicle at its root, preventing those little suckers from growing back.

Can people of all skin tones and hair types get this treatment?

Yes, with the right laser you are able to treat all skin tones, which we are lucky to be able to do. However, laser hair removal is still only effective on dark hair.

Are there any areas that cannot be treated on my body?

Yes, we cannot treat under the eyebrows, but we can go in between them. We also cannot do inside the nose or ears, which can be requested by men. Otherwise, most everything else is fair game.

Is the process 100% permanent?

This is probably one of the most common questions we receive on a daily basis and it’s a great question. Because we do have dormant hair follicles that are not being affected by the laser treatments, we inform our patients that they will probably be closer to 75-80% hair-free upon completion of 6-8 treatments. We can honestly say the vast majority of patients are extremely pleased with their results.
