Laser Hair Removal TreatmentAre you tired of constantly having to shave or schedule another waxing appointment? If so, then you may be wondering whether or not laser hair removal may be able to finally give you the permanent and smoother results you want. Our Casper, WY, cosmetic dermatologists Dr. Scott Bennion and Dr. Matthew Green and our DNP Dr. Brandon Bennion are pleased to offer laser hair removal. Find out more about this popular cosmetic treatment.

What areas of the body can laser hair removal treat?

Laser hair removal is safe to use on just about anywhere on the body. The most popular treatment areas tend to be:

  • Back
  • Chest
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Chin
  • Upper lip

How many hair removal sessions will I need?

This will depend on the thickness and the amount of hair that we have to treat. In most cases, patients will need anywhere from 5 to 10 sessions performed over the course of several weeks in order to get the best results. Since hair grows cyclically, it’s important to give it time for hair to grow out between treatments so that the laser is able to target and permanently destroy more hair follicles.

Is laser hair removal painful?

As the laser is passed over the area you may feel a sensation similar to a rubbing band being snapped against the skin. This is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment; therefore, discomfort is minimal and well tolerated by patients. Some say that waxing is far more uncomfortable than laser hair removal.

Is laser hair removal different from electrolysis?

There are some differences between electrolysis and getting laser hair removal. For one, electrolysis takes much longer because it focuses on treating only one hair at a time, while laser hair removal can target multiple hair follicles at once. Treatment sessions can range from 10-20 minutes for smaller areas like the upper lip, chin, or underarms to one hour for larger areas like the back or legs.
