Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Mudgil Dermatology uses a laser technology that delivers noninvasive hair-zapping wavelengths of light. These wavelengths penetrate the pigment in your hair follicles, which absorb this light energy as therapeutic heat. 

The heat eliminates the follicles — the cells inside your skin that are responsible for making hair. After your treatment, your follicles stop producing hair or make less of it. 

Laser hair removal removes both finer and coarser hair, making it an ideal treatment to eliminate hair nearly anywhere on your body. The treatment also works on lighter hair colors and all skin types. 

What areas can be treated with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal targets most of your problem areas. The technology removes hair from your: 

  • Back
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Arms

You also can opt for laser hair removal on areas of your face, such as your upper lip and chin. 

What happens when I get laser hair removal?

Your wear goggles before your treatment begins to shield your eyes from the laser. Dr. Mudgil places a hand-held laser device over your treatment area. 

It's common to experience tingling or snapping sensations as he moves the device across your skin. However, you shouldn't find laser hair removal painful.

The length of your treatment depends on whether you're having hair removed from a large area or a small one. A small area may take only minutes. Before your session, the team at Mudgil Dermatology discusses exactly what to expect. 

How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?

Mudgil Dermatology recommends repeating laser hair removal as your hair regrows. Your hair grows in three stages, which means each treatment session zaps some, but not all, of your unwanted hair.

You may need up to six sessions to gain the smooth, hair-free appearance you desire. Expect Dr. Mudgill to recommend an appropriate treatment plan to help you achieve your desired aesthetic results.

What should I expect after laser hair removal?

Expect to see less and less hair in your treatment area. The hair that's left often looks finer and is more sparse.
