What Is Laser Hair Removal?


Medical procedure


Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses the light from a laser to remove hair from your face, legs, chin, back, arms, underarms, bikini line, and just about any other place on your body.

Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The light from the laser targets the pigment (melanin) in each hair, heating the follicle while not heating the surrounding skin. The light travels down into the follicle and destroys it making it unable to regrow hair from it. It may take several treatments to any reach every follicle and some follicles may need to be treated more than once. Although laser hair removal is not permanent with one treatment, after several over two or three months, any hair that is dark enough for the laser to find will be gone.

Benefitsof Laser Hair Removal


Smooth, silky appearance you want


There are many ways to rid yourself of unwanted hair.

Depilatory creams can be messy, and the smell can be unpleasant. Waxing can be painful and time-consuming, plus you must wait until the hair grows out before you can have a repeat treatment. Shaving can leave bumps and cause ingrown hairs. The regrowth from waxing and shaving can cause severe itching. The benefits of laser hair removal are numerous:

Time

The process is speedy. Each time the laser is used, many hairs can be destroyed at the same time. Each pulse takes far less than a second. Ridding you of a mustache can take less than a minute. Larger areas like your legs or back may take up to an hour.

Safety

Laser hair removal can target any dark hair while leaving the rest of the skin undamaged.

Permanence

Most people report permanent hair removal after less than ten sessions, sometimes in as few as three.

Dr. Namita Murthy has ten years of experience as a facial plastic surgeon. She is trained in laser therapies to give you the smooth, silky appearance you want. If you are interested in laser hair removal in Annapolis, Dr. Murthy is dedicated to helping you feel confident and look your absolute best.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?


SILKY SKIN


When you meet with Dr. Murthy, the two of you will discuss whether laser hair removal is a good match for you.

Since the laser finds the hair based on the contrast between your hair and skin, you may be a good candidate if you do not have very light hair or need removal from areas with tattoos. If you have dark skin whether because of race, ethnicity, or tanning, the process may be more complicated. It also might not be a good solution for those with white or light blonde hair. Dr. Murthy will discuss other ways to remove unwanted hair if laser hair removal is not right for you.

What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal

Dr. Murthy will first examine your skin. Your skin will be cleaned, and numbing cream may be applied, especially in those areas where the skin is sensitive. After the numbing cream has taken effect, the laser will be applied. With each pulse, you will probably feel a pinprick sensation and some heat. You may see some small smoke as the hair is destroyed. The length of treatment will depend on how large the area is being treated. Dr. Murthy will explain your follow-up care.

What to Expect After Laser Hair Removal


No reappearance of hair


Right after the treatment, your skin may be a bit red and swollen, but there is usually no downtime.

You need to protect your skin from the sun and avoid tanning beds and sun lamps. Most patients need additional treatments every four to six weeks. After those multiple visits, you will see no reappearance of hair for months or even years. Hormones may cause a recurrence of facial hair in women; however, any regrowth will likely be lighter and less perceptible.
