How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Traditional hair removal methods such as tweezing, shaving, or waxing are effective, but the results only last temporarily. Laser hair removal is highly efficient and offers a long-term solution for removing unwanted hair. Cirine Hair Removal & Skin Care provides laser hair reduction services on any area of the body with unwanted hair to help you look and feel amazing.

How Laser Hair Reduction Works

Laser hair reduction treatment uses highly concentrated light that creates energy directed into the hair follicles. The pigment in the client’s hair absorbs the heat energy, which disables hair follicles, reducing or preventing hair growth.

Laser hair elimination is done to reduce unwanted hair growth. Common treatment areas include the armpits, legs, upper lip, bikini line, and chin. The treatment can eliminate unwanted hair in almost any area except the area surrounding the eyelid.

At Cirine, we use the Candela GentleMax Pro System, which offers efficient, comfortable, and effective laser hair reduction treatments. The system provides dual wavelengths to treat most skin types safely.

Are the Results Permanent?

Laser hair removal is a permanent reduction and not a permanent removal treatment. The treatment effectively delays hair growth for long periods and does not result in the permanent removal of hair. You will need multiple treatments for initial hair removal and maintenance.

We offer a designated treatment plan for our clients to see great results. You may need follow-up sessions to maintain results. We recommend electrolysis for those who are not suitable candidates for laser.

Does the Treatment Work on All Skin Tones and Hair Colors?

Skin type and hair color impact the success of laser hair reduction. The pigment in the hair absorbs the light but not the pigment in the skin. The laser damages the hair follicle only while preventing damage to the skin.

A contrast between skin color and hair (light skin and dark hair) delivers the best outcomes. Little difference between skin and hair color increases the risk of skin damage. But laser technology advancements have made laser hair reduction an alternative for those with darker skin.

We use laser technology that’s effective on most skin tones. An ideal candidate for laser treatment is a person with dark hair and light-medium skin tone. The treatment is less effective for people with hair colors that cannot absorb light well: white, blonde, red, or grey.

What To Expect

During treatment, you’ll put on special goggles to shield your eyes from the highly concentrated light produced by the laser device. A laser technician may have to shave the area again if necessary. They may also need to apply a topical anesthetic on the site to minimize discomfort during treatment.

Our laser hair reduction treatment typically requires 6-12 sessions to get the desired results. We scheduled sessions 4-8 weeks apart, depending on the area that requires treatment.
