Laser Hair Removal

Conventional hair removal methods like waxing and shaving are time-consuming. Unlike these traditional methods, laser hair removal treatments produce longer-lasting results. Cornerstone Plastic Surgery offers safe and effective laser hair removal treatments using premier technology. 

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic, non-invasive method that uses a laser to remove unwanted hair. This laser hair reduction method removes unwanted hair from most parts of the body. This technique is most commonly used to remove hair from the face, arms, legs, bikini line, and underarms. It can also remove hair from the chest, back, and other areas.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

During your laser hair removal treatment at Cornerstone Plastic Surgery, we will use Palomar’s Cynosure Icon™ MaxR Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) systems. Dr. Coville’s team will use a low-energy laser to gently emit a beam of light absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This procedure destroys the hair follicle and prevents it from growing new hair.

Patients often say the laser feels like a rubber band snapping against their skin. However, the Cynosure Icon™ MaxR Laser’s cooling feature minimizes discomfort and protects your skin.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?

There is no fixed cost for laser hair removal. The average cost of laser hair removal ranges from $125-$1,000 per treatment. The total price of laser hair removal treatments depends on several factors:

  • Geographic location
  • Provider’s expertise
  • Total laser hair removal sessions
  • Areas treated
  • Consultation fees
  • Maintenance treatments
  • Recovery costs like prescription medications

How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions Do I Need?

The number of treatments needed depends on the individual, the areas treated, the hair’s growth cycle, and the equipment used. Laser hair removal is done in four to eight treatments to achieve optimal results.

How Long Do Laser Hair Removal Results Last?

The effects of laser hair removal are not permanent, but they are long-lasting. The results can last several months before your hair begins to grow back. However, maintenance treatments can help reduce hair growth. Moreover, your hair will usually grow back thinner and lighter after treatment. 

Is There Any Downtime With Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal does not require significant downtime. Your skin may be red and swollen for a few days. However, you can manage these side effects by applying a cool compress like an ice pack to your skin. You should only apply cold compresses for up to 10 minutes three times a day. Most patients go about their day immediately after treatment. 

Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

The ideal candidates for laser hair removal are people with fair skin and dark hair. The great contrast between dark hair and light skin allows the laser to target the pigment in the hair follicles instead of the pigment in the skin. However, some advanced laser technologies can treat patients with darker skin and dark hair. The laser technology at Cornerstone Plastic Surgery works for most skin tones and hair colors.
