    Unwanted hair, we all have it, some more than others, but this is something we can’t really escape; only use tools to remove it. There are many ways to get rid of unwanted hair and one of the more effective ways is via laser hair removal.

    There are many reputable dermatologists Denver has to offer to help you achieve your desired hair removal needs.

    What is Laser Hair Removal?

    Laser hair removal is the process by which hair is removed from the dermis with a laser. The laser light will rid the dermis of the hair follicle when exposed to the special beam of light and pulse emitted from the laser device. It is often advised to utilize laser hair removal techniques on areas that are not as sensitive such as the legs. However, we have also had great success using it to remove that unwanted hair under the arms and facial areas.    

    What Can I Expect If I Decided To Have Laser Hair Removal?

    Denver laser hair removal specialists will help you go a long way at keeping unwanted hair under control. The art to laser hair removal takes both specialized knowledge and a lot of skill. Our professional dermatologists have completed specific training and have the experience necessary to help you achieved the results that you desire. 

    To prepare your skin for laser hair removal, it is imperative to steer clear from waxing, tweezing and virtually any other hair removal methods that remove the hair from the roots. This will ensure that your laser treatment is as effective as possible, and will enable the laser to target the roots and obliterate them. Also, avoiding sun exposure will ensure that there are no adverse effects before and after your laser treatment.  

    How Long Does the Procedure Last and Is It Painful?

    On average the results of the procedure will last between 6 to 12 months. This procedure will have to be done periodically to accommodate the hair growth cycle.

    Depending on your pain level tolerance, your experience with the laser hair removal treatment may vary.  For most, the process is painless and for others, it may cause a mild and temporary amount of discomfort.  For our more sensitive patients, we recommend taking a few painkillers beforehand.  We also can administer a numbing cream to numb the skin in preparation for the treatment.
