Are you a candidate?

Common worries about laser hair removal include concern that your hair may be too light. In the past, limited laser technology meant that light or blonde hair typically didn’t respond well to a laser at all. We now have a multitude of specialized wavelengths and energy customization at our disposal. We’re able to bypass the surface layers of skin and pigment, making laser hair removal safe and effective for a wider variety of hair types. Laser hair removal is suitable for men and women with any skin type who are unhappy with the excessive hair growth they have on their face and body. All hair colors can be treated, from blonde to black.

Your Consultation

Before your treatment, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your goals with Dr. Gartner. He’ll examine the area you’d like to treat and briefly discuss your medical condition and history to ensure laser hair removal is suitable for you. It is important to note that while laser hair removal is effective, sometimes underlying medical conditions may cause excessive hair growth and those should be treated first. At your first appointment, you’ll find out approximately how many sessions you may need to achieve the results you want.

As part of your consultation, you’ll have a small patch test done in the area you’d like to treat. This is done to determine how your skin and hair react will respond to the treatment.

However, the only way to really know if you’re a suitable candidate for surgery is by talking to Dr. Gartner during your private medical consultation.

How to prepare for your treatment

It is important that you not wax, sugar or pluck your hair before a laser hair removal session, as the technology is effective only when the hair follicle is still intact. Please make sure that your skin in the target area is not irritated, inflamed or infected, as this may increase the risk of developing a complication. For your safety, your session may be postponed if the health of your skin is compromised.

While suntanned skin can be treated, you should let us know if you’ve tanned recently as we’ll need to adjust your treatment regimen accordingly for your safety.

Your treatment

Once all of the target areas have been treated, your skin will be cleansed. We may apply a sunscreen and moisturizer to protect the integrity of your skin.

  • The skin in the target area will be cleaned.
  • A numbing cream may be applied beforehand to increase your comfort. This is not necessary, but we are happy to provide it if your prefer.
  • A cooling gel is applied to the target area(s)and this helps to cool the skin surface during your treatment.
  • The target area is exposed to brief, pulses of laser energy emitted by a handheld device.

Your Recovery

Congratulations, within a few months you’ll be able to see the results of your laser hair removal procedure! All you have to do is to follow the post-surgery care instructions provided to you by Dr. Gartner and wait for your breasts to settle.

Learn What To Do After Surgery

Your Recovery

You’ll be able to get right back to work after your session. Redness, sensitivity and slight swelling may occur, but these typically resolve within in a day or two. Your skin will be hypersensitive to sun exposure, therefore it’s important to keep the area(s) covered up and well protected.

Your results

Throughout the first few weeks after your session, you’ll notice that the hair in the target area will gradually shed.

Because laser hair removal can only target hair follicles which are in an active growth phase, you may find that some hairs begin to regrow in an area that you treated. In each area of your skin, hair will grow and rest at different rates in their follicles. This new growth can be removed at your next session until eventually all follicles are no longer producing hair.

Considerations and risks associated with laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is a laser-based technology. For this reason, the most notable risks associated with the treatment include burns, undesirable pigmentation changes and scarring. Your aesthetician will discuss what you need to know to be safe and prepare for your treatment.
