What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal ranks among the top choices for eliminating unwanted body hair. It uses a laser beam that targets and removes individual hairs at the follicle where they grow. This technology was developed in Japan, but the United States is currently leading the way when it comes to providing in-office procedures for patients who want a more permanent method for getting rid of unwanted body hair.

Testimonials

I’m happy I made the decision to give them a try. Dr. Robert did an amazing job on my face, and I look ten years younger now.

O.S.

In Dec 1976, Dr. Glasgold performed plastic surgery on my nose. I saw his name on the internet and thought I would take this moment to tell you how happy I have been all these years. In almost 30 years, not one person has been able to guess I have had my nose fixed. I am proud to tell people, especially people who tell me they can ‘always’ spot a nose job. Thank you,.

Good Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

Ideal candidates for laser hair removal in New Jersey at Glasgold Group Plastic Surgery are individuals, both men and women, who possess realistic expectations and desire the removal of unwanted hair from various areas of the face and body. Some patients, including those with darker pigmentation and sometimes those with blonde, white, or gray hairs, may not respond well to treatment.

Types of Laser Hair Removal

GentleLASE Laser

GentleLASE laser hair removal has become one of the most popular types of laser hair removal treatments in our Princeton, NJ, practice. This method targets hairs in their growth phase, making them more responsive to light and heat than during the resting phase. Unlike IPL/photofacial methods, GentleLASE is less likely to burn your skin or cause redness following treatment.

Alexandrite Laser

This long-pulse Alexandrite laser targets all colors of hair and skin, including darker-pigmented hair. It is the only FDA-cleared laser for treating tanned or darkly pigmented skin, as well as white and gray hair.

Diode Laser

The diode laser is an effective treatment for all skin types, including brown, black, and light skin. The darker your skin tone, the longer the recovery time after your treatment.

Preparation for Laser Hair Removal

If you’re considering laser hair removal in New Jersey, it’s important to know that changing your diet and lifestyle habits before the procedure can help you get better results. Your dermatologist may recommend changes such as abstaining from alcohol, applying sunscreen daily, or lowering your intake of salt or caffeine for a few weeks before treatments. Your doctor may also prescribe topical or oral medications to help prevent skin reactions, and you may need sunscreen or anti-itch creams if your skin is especially sensitive.

The Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Laser hair removal offers its patients a secure and effective result.

Not all hair is active at the same time, so the number of laser hair removal treatment sessions you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on the areas of the body you wish to have treated, the hair density, and your hair’s growth cycle.

This procedure is often performed in a surgeon’s office-based facility and may be performed without any anesthesia. The duration of each laser hair removal session can vary, ranging from a few minutes to several hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. Multiple sessions are typically required to achieve maximum hair reduction.

Though some temporary swelling and redness can occur, laser hair removal involves virtually no downtime, and patients are usually able to return to their normal activities immediately. However, sun exposure will need to be limited to several days. There are generally few risks associated with laser hair removal.

During the procedure, you may feel a slight tingling or an intense burning sensation. This sensation should only last for a few seconds and is usually accompanied by a loud snapping sound.

You’ll probably feel some dull pain and itching for the following two or three days after treatment. Your skin may look red and swollen when you leave your appointment, but this should dissipate within a day or so.

Risks or Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal has been performed by professionals for decades, and many have reported minimal side effects. However, some people believe that it may cause scarring and burns when performed improperly. To avoid any such complications, be sure to schedule a consultation with an experienced technician who will review your medical history before performing the procedure.

Should scars and burns occur, you may need to consult a physician for the removal of the burn area. Depending on your texture, hair/skin color, and skin sensitivity, laser treatments may be more or less effective in your specific case. If you have a darker complexion or thick hair texture, it will take longer to remove unwanted hair completely using this method.

Laser Hair Removal Aftercare

To help reduce the risk of side effects and to aid in the healing process, you should take several steps after your sessions. It is recommended that you do not rub or massage the treated areas for two days after treatment. You should also apply an over-the-counter pain reliever immediately if you feel discomfort.
