Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Shore Medical Aesthetics provides dependable and affordable laser hair removal procedures to clients across Nassau County and Long Island. Here are some frequently asked questions regarding this type of procedure. 

How Does Treatment Work?

After the cleansing, a numbing gel is applied to the treatment area. Once the numbing occurs, you will be moved to a special room for the removal. While holding your skin tight, we will direct the laser over the designated area. According to the FDA, the heat from the laser destroys the hair follicles, which leaves you with a smooth skin in a matter of minutes.

Are Results Permanent?

No, laser hair removal will not permanently remove hair from your body. However, it does greatly reduce the amount of hair that grows in that area. The American Academy of Dermatology explains that most clients will enjoy results over the course of a several months and sometimes even years. But at some point, the hair will start to grow back, but it is usually much lighter and finer than it was before the treatment.

How Many Treatments Are Necessary?

The amount of treatments required comes down to the size of the treatment area and the amount of hair present. Most patients need two to six sessions in order to get their desired results. When the hair invariably returns, the patient can visit a specialist for touch-up sessions to maintain the results.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

Laser hair removal is a versatile treatment that can ultimately be applied to many different parts of the body. However, typically this treatment is used to clear the hair on patient's legs, back, chest, neck, shoulders, upper lips, chin and the bikini area.
