Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a permanent solution to your unwanted hair. Dr. Paikal uses one of the most advanced laser hair removal systems to give you smoother, hair-free skin quickly and painlessly. He offers laser hair removal for both men and women and can safely remove unwanted hair from many parts of the body, including your:

  • Back
  • Arms
  • Shoulders
  • Legs
  • Bikini
  • Chest
  • Underarms

The laser is so gentle that it’s safe for all skin types and won’t cause any rashes or severe skin irritation.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by destroying the hair follicle, which stops further hair growth. When placed on your skin, the laser has the ability to target the follicle under your skin. The energy created by the laser is absorbed by the pigment in the follicle, which destroys it.

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular and effective treatments for permanently removing unwanted hair.

What can I expect during laser hair removal treatment?

Laser hair removal at Westwood Laser is gentle and quick. Unlike other laser hair removal systems, there’s no need for an anesthetic for pain relief. During your treatment, Dr. Paikal places the laser wand over the treatment area and the laser energy produces the desired results.

Dr. Paikal likes to keep the appointments short so they’re more convenient for your schedule, and there’s no downtime following your laser hair removal so you can go back to your usual activities once you’re done. You should notice an improvement in your skin after the first session.

Do I need more than one treatment?

To get the best results, you need a series of laser hair removal treatments. Hair grows in cycles, so it’s impossible to remove all the hair in one treatment Dr. Paikal creates personalized treatment plans so you know what to expect and can properly prepare. The intervals and frequency of your treatments may depend on the area of your body undergoing laser hair removal.

To help maintain your smooth, hair-free skin, Dr. Paikal recommends you return to the office as needed for touch-up laser hair removal treatments.
