Laser Hair Reduction

Laser Hair Reduction Omaha Dermatology

Hair Removal Procedure

During the procedure, the laser is moved across the targeted area with a handheld device that treats the area with intense laser pulses. Hair follicles in the growth state are disabled. The length of the procedure can range from just a few minutes up to an hour, depending on the size of the treated area.
Most patients only experience a tingling or snapping sensation like a rubber band. There is no bleeding during this procedure since the laser energy penetrates only the hair follicles deep within the skin.

Treatments

Since the laser can only disable hair follicles that are in the active growth cycle and not those that are dormant, patients will need four to six treatment sessions to treat all of the follicles in the targeted area. Each session can treat approximately one-quarter to one-third of the follicles in the targeted area. Once treated, hair may fall out immediately or will shed within one to three weeks after treatment.
