Laser hair removal can get rid of hair on any part of the body including underarms, chest, back, legs, bikini area and face. Most people find it time consuming and costly to maintain their unwanted hair with shaving, tweezing or waxing so they turn to laser hair removal for a more permanent fix. Seeing a board certified dermatologist like Dr. Lupo or Dr. Souyoul for laser hair removal ensures patients that they are receiving the finest care with state-of-the-art devices. The Lupo Center has special lasers designed for any skin type, so even dark-skinned patients can safely have permanent hair reduction as long as the skin is not tanned.
The number of treatment sessions for patients will vary depending on their hair’s response to treatment and the thickness of the hair. Thicker hair will require more treatments. Treatments are spaced out over several weeks to ensure the laser treats the hair in the active growth phase. Other hair that is not in the active phase will not be affected by the treatment. By treating every few weeks, we can target all the hair during the cycle of growth. Patients seeking reduction of hair may just need one or two treatments.
