Laser Hair Removal At The Dr Lanzer Clinic – What You Need To Know

Request Consultation

Laser hair removal is one of the treatments available at The Dr Lanzer Clinic. The treatment is a popular option for men and women who want to prevent hair growth in certain areas; this since laser treatment can reduce or even halt hair growth.

There is a lot of information available about laser hair removal, so we urge patients to read this information before they come in. It can help by providing you information on what to expect when you come in and the results you can obtain. Want to learn more about laser hair removal at our clinic? Be sure to check out the info below.

What Makes Laser Hair Removal Different From Other Hair Removal Methods?

Most hair removal methods are focussed on the immediate removal of the hair; this is the case for methods such as epilation, waxing, and chemical hair removal. This is where laser hair removal is different, since this treatment will prevent the regrowth of the hair after it has been removed.

Laser hair removal influences hair growth by interacting with the pigment inside the hair. The light of the laser travels down the pigment of the hair towards the root, and this is what influences the hair growth.

Naturally, for laser hair removal to be effective, the patient in question must have pigment inside the hair to work with. Therefore, laser hair removal tends to be an option for patients with darker hair. If you have blonde hair or hair with lighter pigment, an alternative hair removal method can be recommended by Dr Lanzer or a member of his team.

What Laser Is Used For Hair Removal Treatments?

There are a variety of lasers in existence, so patients can encounter several depending on the clinic they choose. The laser used during your treatment can also be subject to your requirements as well as the overall nature of the hair you want to get removed.

The Dr Lanzer Clinic currently uses two different types of lasers for laser hair removal; this includes the Revlite laser and the IPL laser. Patients who has a fair skin tone usually benefit most from the IPL laser. However, if you have a darker skin tone, the Revlite laser can prove more useful.

How Long Does It Take To Achieve My Desired Hair Removal?

Most patients will require several hair removal appointments to achieve their desired result. It is also recommended to obtain maintenance sessions; this will keep the hair at bay as time progresses.

The majority of patients who visit the Dr Lanzer Clinic for laser hair removal will have anything between eight to ten laser hair removal treatments. Naturally, patients cannot have this treatment every other day, so patients will be required to wait for four to six weeks before they come in for their next treatment.

What Do I Need To Do Before I Come In For Laser Hair Removal?

Patients who come in for laser hair removal are advised to shave the area in question. Even though laser hair removal will prevent the hair from returning, or reduce the amount of hair that returns, it is still necessary to remove any existing hair.

Please note that hair removal during the actual course of the treatment is not recommended. Certain hair removal methods can cause complications with laser hair removal or damage the treatment area. Therefore, patients are advised to stay away from hair removal methods such as plucking or waxing.

Are There Any Side-Effects I Can Experience After Laser Hair Removal?

It is not uncommon for patients to feel something after laser hair removal. Most patients experience some tenderness on or around the treatment area. For most patients, this sensitivity disappears completely after a couple of days. When patients return for their maintenance sessions, they notice the side-effects less and less. Of course, everyone is different.

How Do I Look After The Treatment Area After Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a relatively simple procedure that does not require any form of special aftercare. That being said, we always advise our patients to take good care of their skin post-procedure; this can promote the natural healing process after laser hair removal.

We must mention that patients need to avoid certain products after their laser hair removal procedure. Since the skin can be rather sensitive, certain products can irritate the skin after laser hair removal. If you are unsure about safe products to use after your treatment, be sure to consult with Dr Lanzer or a member of his team for more information.
