Laser Hair Reduction Q & A
What type of laser hair reduction services do you offer?
At Vein Clinics of Hawaii, the staff offers laser hair removal and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments. Both treatments use light therapy to target hair follicles and destroy the hair from the root.
Laser hair treatment is more precise, while IPL treatment typically targets a larger area for a quicker and more inexpensive procedure. IPL is most effective for darker or pigmented hair. The Vein Clinics of Hawaii uses Cynosure® products for its IPL treatments, with several lasers options including:
Different types of lasers have different wavelengths and are a good fit for different pigments of skin and hair.
Am I a good candidate for laser hair reduction?
- Facial hair
- Bikini area (Brazilian and standard)
If you have certain conditions, such as an active tan, history of seizures, or are pregnant, taking blood thinners, or are taking immunosuppression medication, you shouldn’t have laser hair reduction unless cleared by a doctor.
What can I expect from my laser hair reduction appointment?
Laser hair reduction procedures usually take less than an hour, depending on the part of the body being treated. Treatments are relatively painless and don’t usually require numbing medication or rest after the procedure.
Before the procedure, you should avoid hair removal techniques that pluck out the root of the hair, like waxing or epilation. It’s also a good idea to protect your skin from damage, including wearing sunscreen and avoiding tanning beds.
During the procedure, your hair is trimmed, and a cooling gel on the target area keeps you comfortable. The laser treatment targets a specific or general area depending on which type of laser treatment you choose. You may need follow-up treatments to ensure that the skin stays smooth and hair-free.
Laser hair removal is safe, FDA-cleared, and permanent. Looking for a hair-free future? Call Dr. Juleff at Vein Clinics of Hawaii today for your first consultation.
