Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that permanently eliminates hair by sending pulses of concentrated light into hair follicles. The light energy damages the follicles and prevents growth.

Dolly Singh, RN, and the team at NewSkin Laser Center use a specially engineered laser that rotates rapidly in small circles to treat targeted areas, such as the:

  • Upper lip
  • Legs
  • Bikini line
  • Back
  • Face
  • Arms

The innovative laser reaches the darkened areas where follicles reside without causing any damage to the more delicate upper layers of skin or tissue.

How does laser hair removal treatment work?

Through a series of visits to one of the clean and comfortable NewSkin Laser Centers in Northridge or Simi Valley, California, you meet with your laser-trained nurse for four to six sessions, for about an hour each.

To prepare for the laser treatment, your nurse cleans and shaves the area and gives you protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the concentrated light.

NewSkin Laser Center uses the Palomar 1540 non-ablative Fraxel laser because it’s safe, fast, and effective. As the high-tech laser moves over the designated area, it heats the skin to the follicle. It isn’t painful and is far less uncomfortable than waxing or tweezing individual hairs.

How long do the results of laser hair removal last?

Due to hair’s growth cycle, Dr. Darush and the team at NewSkin Laser Center recommend between four and six treatments to completely halt new hair growth.

What can I expect after hair removal treatment?

At the completion of your laser hair removal therapy, your skin is smooth and hairless. Depending on your skin and hair type, a touch-up session may be necessary in the coming years.

You use an ice pack for a few hours after each session and are advised to stay out of the sun for a day or two. Apply sunscreen for several weeks to prevent sunburn or pigment changes in your skin.
