Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

At Amen Clinic, P.C., Dr. Adetunji and his team use the innovative Cynosure Icon laser technology to damage hair follicles and get rid of unwanted facial or body hair without cutting, needles, or downtime. Damaged hair follicles cause hair to slowly fall out over time so you can avoid shaving, waxing, and plucking. 

Is laser hair removal right for me?

To determine if laser hair removal is the right treatment for you, Dr. Adetunji and his team review your medical history and examine your skin. Laser hair removal treatment is safe and effective for virtually all skin colors and types. It gets rid of unwanted hair on your:

  • Upper lip
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Legs 
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Bikini line

To prepare for treatment, Dr. Adetunji might ask you to stop taking certain medications and avoid sunless tanning creams, waxing, plucking, or electrolysis. You can shave the treatment area the day before your scheduled procedure.

What happens during treatment?

Prior to Icon laser hair removal, Dr. Adetunji offers you special glasses to wear to protect your eyes from the laser. He can apply a numbing cream to your skin, so you don’t feel any discomfort during the procedure. 

Dr. Adetunji applies a hand-held device to your skin that emits laser energy. With numbing cream, you can barely feel the rubber band snapping sensation associated with laser hair removal treatment. Your procedure might last a few minutes for tiny areas or over an hour for larger treatment areas.

What should I expect after laser hair removal?

There’s no downtime associated with laser hair removal, so you can resume normal daily activities right away. You may experience redness or swelling, but these side effects are temporary. You can apply ice to the area if you’d like. Protect your skin from the sun with sunscreen or protective clothing.

Hair doesn't fall out immediately but begins shedding over a period of several days or weeks. To achieve optimal results, Dr. Adetunji recommends a series of laser hair removal treatments spaced a few months apart. Doing so targets hair at each stage of the growth cycle, including the active growth stage.

Don’t settle for shaving, waxing, or plucking when laser hair removal is a simple, painless permanent hair removal solution. Schedule an appointment with Amen Clinic, P.C., over the phone or online today.
