The most common methods of eradicating unwanted body and facial hair are shaving, waxing, and plucking. Those techniques might offer immediate results, but they only deliver short-term outcomes, and, in some cases, they can be painful methods to endure.

Thankfully, there is a painless method of hair removal that also offers long-term results. Laser hair removal from Renew MD is a cutting-edge treatment, and we offer two solutions for laser hair reduction: Cutera CoolGlide Laser and Cutera Pro Wave.

Purpose of Laser Hair Removal

If you’re fed up with needing to shave, wax, or pluck your unwanted hair regularly, laser hair removal could be the best treatment for your needs. The purpose of laser hair removal is to offer a non-invasive, long-term solution to the conventional alternatives mentioned earlier.

Typical treatment locations include the legs, armpits, upper lip, and chin. Laser hair reduction is also a common solution for unwanted hair on the bikini line. It’s possible to eliminate unwanted hair on almost any body part except for eyelids and skin with tattoos on them.

What Are Laser Hair Removal Treatments Like?

At Renew MD, our expert laser medical team ensures that each client ends up with a laser hair removal solution tailored to their needs. Some people new to laser hair reduction think it’s a painful procedure, but there’s minimal discomfort during the treatment.

As the light energy pulses the target areas, the laser hair removal system simultaneously cools down the skin. The entire process only takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete, depending on the treatment area.

It’s also worth noting that you’ll need several treatment sessions for optimal results. That’s because hair grows at different rates, so the extra sessions ensure new hair growth gets targeted in the treatment areas.

How Do Laser Hair Removal Treatments Work?

As the name suggests, a laser beam (highly concentrated light energy) gets pulsed at each hair follicle quicker than the blink of an eye. The process is remarkable in that it targets and destroys hair follicles while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.

When hair follicles get destroyed, the formerly attached strands of hair fall out, resulting in smooth, hairless skin. Laser hair removal works best on people with medium to light skin tones that have dark hair follicles.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

You could be a good candidate for laser hair removal from Renew MD if you hate shaving, waxing, or plucking your unwanted hair regularly and want to have a long-term solution. Due to the nature of hair growth, you’ll need around 4-6 sessions for optimal results.

You should also have realistic expectations for hair reduction, as laser hair removal offers long-term results – not permanent changes. That’s because hair can grow back if the follicles aren’t completely destroyed.
