Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Dr. Moma Health & Wellness Clinic utilizes the latest advances in laser technology to get rid of unwanted facial and body hair. It can remove hair in the most undesirable areas, including your:

  • Upper lip
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Bikini area
  • Legs

Choosing laser hair removal at Dr. Moma Health & Wellness Clinic means you don’t have to worry about shaving, waxing, plucking, or using electrolysis. 

Is laser hair removal right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal, your provider at Dr. Moma Health & Wellness Clinic reviews your medical history and examines areas of your body with unwanted facial or body hair. They discuss your desired outcome and talk about what to expect during the treatment.

How should I prepare for laser hair removal?

To get ready for laser hair removal at Dr. Moma Health & Wellness Clinic, follow all pre-treatment instructions. Protect your skin from the sun, avoid using tanning creams, and don’t wax, pluck, or use electrolysis several weeks before your scheduled appointment. You can shave the day before treatment. Your provider might also ask you to stop taking certain medications.

What happens during the treatment?

During laser hair removal, you relax in a comfortable chair or lie on a table at Dr. Moma Health & Wellness Clinic. Your provider gives you special glasses to wear to protect your eyes. They can apply a numbing cream to your skin to make the procedure feel comfortable and might shave the treatment area.

Your aesthetic specialist applies a hand-held device to your skin to emit laser energy into it. The laser beam passes through the skin to hair follicles to damage them and inhibit future hair growth. You might feel the sensation of warm pinpricks and cooling. Each treatment might last just a few minutes or more than an hour, depending on the size of the areas treated.

What should I expect after laser hair removal?

After laser hair removal, expect some swelling or redness for a few hours. You can apply ice to the treatment areas as needed. Protect your skin from the sun and avoid tanning beds. 

Treated hair begins to fall out over a period of several days and weeks. Your Dr. Moma Health & Wellness Clinic specialist might recommend a series of 2-6 treatments spaced apart at specific intervals, with periodic maintenance treatments to help you achieve long-lasting results.

Don’t live with unwanted facial or body hair, or spend time shaving or waxing when you don’t have to. Book an appointment at Dr. Moma Health & Wellness Clinic to determine if laser hair removal is right for you.
