Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Hair Removal

The team at Avenel and Rahway Primary Care & Aesthetics discusses your medical history and reviews your concerns before recommending laser hair removal. Some medical conditions may disqualify you from treatment, including having genital herpes, skin cancer, or keloid scars.

If you qualify for laser hair removal, your provider tailors your treatment sessions to match your needs.

Avenel and Rahway Primary Care & Aesthetics may provide you with special instructions prior to your laser hair removal appointment. Your provider might ask you to avoid tanning and stop taking certain medications. 

You should also steer clear of other hair removal techniques, such as plucking or waxing, for about a month prior to laser treatment. However, you can shave the treatment area the day before your session.

When you come in for your laser hair removal session, your provider has you lie comfortably on an exam table or reclining chair. They then apply numbing cream to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort, and ask you to wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from the laser. 

Next, your provider uses a special device that emits the laser energy into areas of your face or body containing the undesirable hair.

Following your laser treatment, you might have some redness, tenderness, and swelling for a few hours. You may ice the treatment areas to reduce these temporary side effects.

It takes time to see the results of laser hair removal. The treated hair will fall out over time, and you’ll notice significantly less hair. You might need multiple sessions to achieve your desired results, but the team can help schedule your next session after the first treatment. In the meantime, it’s important to wear sunscreen and avoid the sun.
