Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal with the Sheerwave® IPL 360 platform involves exposing your hair follicles to intense bursts of light. This light energy is absorbed by pigments in the growth center of your hair, causing an intense heat reaction, which stops the hair growth cycle instantly.

Over the following couple of weeks, all of that destroyed hair sheds away with each passing day. New hair does come back eventually, but it’s finer and lighter.

The reason hair growth still occurs after a laser hair removal session is that light energy is most effective on hairs that are actively growing in the anagen phase. But each hair on your body is at a different point in the growth cycle, so in order to target every hair as it’s growing, you need to have multiple sessions.

Which areas can laser hair removal treat?

Laser hair removal is safe and effective for dramatically reducing hair just about anywhere on your body. At New Look Laser Medical, some of the top-requested treatment areas include:

  • Neck
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Underarms
  • Legs or arms
  • Upper lip and chin
  • Pubic area (bikini line)

Laser hair removal technology with the Sheerwave IPL 360 system is best suited for men and women who have lighter skin and darker, more coarse hair. But this laser hair removal platform is so advanced it might be right for you even if you fall outside of these parameters. The best way to know if laser hair removal is going to be effective for you is to book a consultation at New Look Laser Medical.

When will I have results with laser hair removal?

Once the Sheerwave IPL 360 system treats your hair, it’s important to gently exfoliate several times per week to help the destroyed hair fall out. It takes around two weeks for shedding to occur, although hair continues to fall out after this point.

Usually, you can achieve dramatically smoother skin after going through about four to eight monthly laser hair removal sessions at New Look Laser Medical. Treatments are quick and virtually painless — you can apply a topical numbing cream ahead of time if needed — so you can even schedule your visits during your lunch break.
