How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for men and women alike who are tired of the tedious upkeep or sometimes expense that shaving, waxing or plucking require.  Many men seek a permanent removal solution for back hair, chest hair, or hair on the back of the neck, and many women do the same for leg hair, bikini line hair, or unwanted facial hair.

Recent advancements in cosmetic laser technology means that if you are tired of the shaving and waxing, it’s time to consider laser hair removal, especially with summer in full swing!

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is an alternative treatment for shaving and waxing. This non-invasive treatment uses concentrated light energy to damage the hair follicle and remove it at the root.  

At Albuquerque Vein and Laser Institute, our state-of-the-art Super Hair Removal treatment features the Harmony XL Pro laser that allows us to treat every skin type with minimal discomfort. In fact, it’s the most comfortable laser hair removal treatment available! During the course of a series of treatments, the body’s ability to grow and nourish that hair follicle will be diminished until your treatment areas appear hair-free!

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

The Harmony XL Pro System utilizes concentrated light beams to destroy the hair follicles, removing them from the root. Super Hair Removal (SHR)  begins by slowly raising the temperature of the skin until the follicles of hair start to break down. This level of heat will also prevent the hairs from growing again in the future. This laser does not harm any of the tissue surrounding the treatment area, making the treatment safe for all skin types! 

The laser delivers pulses that are short and repetitive. Each pulse of light is an incredibly narrow, specific wavelength of energy that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle without affecting surrounding skin. 

What Does Laser Hair Removal Feel Like?

The laser energy heats the melanin and hair follicles with and destroys the hair for long-lasting results. The hand-held applicator is kept in constant motion for full coverage, allowing us to quickly treat large areas of the body.

The laser treatment is accompanied by  an effective air cooling tool which will help your skin to stay more comfortable during the process. There’s no need for numbing or anesthesia. 

About Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment

A typical laser hair removal treatment takes about 15-60 minutes, depending on the area of the body that is being treated

Patients generally need 6-8 treatments over time but commonly report 10-25% less hair after just one treatment. During the treatment series, the hair will thin and become finer in texture. Your hair will eventually stop regrowing, leaving you hair-free.

“I could not be happier with the services provided by Dr. Cutchen’s and his entire staff. Everyone treated me with respect and cared for the improvement of my veins and I never felt like “just another number”. Follow up care was great. The office manager is really easy to work with and never caused me any issues. Overall- this is the place to be treated!” *
