Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that you get to remove or significantly reduce your body hair. During the procedure, Dr. Guzman uses the Spectrum laser to target areas of hair growth on your body.

In just a couple of quick appointments, she can both remove your body hair and delay future hair growth. Some patients entirely cease their body hair growth in the treated areas and rarely, if ever, must return for maintenance sessions.

The laser heats and vaporizes existing hairs on your body. The energy from the laser also heats the follicle, or sac that grows each hair, to the point of disabling it for a period of time or killing it. Each individual reacts to the treatment differently, and Dr. Guzman works with you to create a treatment plan involving multiple sessions.

Where can I get laser hair removal?

With today’s advanced laser hair removal technologies, you can safely remove unwanted hair from nearly anywhere on your body. You can target large areas evenly or multiple areas in a session. Specifically, Dr. Guzman frequently uses hair removal on patients’:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Chest
  • Chin
  • Upper lip
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Back

At your consultation, you’ll identify the areas of hair growth that bother you. Dr. Guzman and her team decide the best way to strategize your hair removal to hit all of your specified areas.

How should I prepare for my laser hair removal treatment?

Before each laser hair removal appointment, Dr. Guzman and her team provide you with specific instructions that ensure a successful procedure with few side effects. Depending on your medical history and skin type, they may recommend:

  • Staying out of the sun for several weeks
  • Using sunscreen daily
  • Stopping plucking and waxing your hair
  • Shaving your treatment areas shortly before your appointment
  • Ceasing your intake of certain medications

For the best results, be sure to follow your treatment plan as diligently as possible. Because optimal hair growth reduction usually occurs after more than one session, you must attend every appointment for the best results.

To stop the endless routine of shaving, waxing, or tweezing your body hair, call Maui Medi-Spa and Cosmetic Laser or book your appointment online today.
