Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses the advanced light technology of the Cutera® system to target individual hair follicles, destroying their ability to produce hair. Because the Cutera laser has precision focus, only the cells that produce hair are affected and your skin’s surface isn’t harmed. The result is soft, supple skin that is free of unwanted hair or stubble.

Which areas are addressed with laser hair removal treatments?

The skilled providers at Advantage Women’s Care have the training and experience to perform laser hair reduction almost anywhere on the body. The most common areas treated include:

  • Eyebrows
  • Upper lip
  • Jawline and chin
  • Neck
  • Upper and lower back
  • Armpits
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Legs
  • Hands and feet

Laser hair removal is a good option for sensitive areas, such as the breasts or bikini line.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Laser hair reduction with the Cutera laser isn’t painful, but you may experience some mild pinching or discomfort. Treatments are short, and most people find them easy to tolerate.

How many laser hair removal treatments are needed?

Your hair grows in stages, and not all your hair is at the same stage at any given time. Therefore, a series of laser hair removal treatments is usually necessary to remove all hair in a target area. Typically, 3-6 treatments are needed to achieve optimal results.

Is laser hair removal safe?

The Cutera laser is FDA-cleared for laser hair removal. Mild side effects, such as redness or irritation around the treatment site, are possible, but these usually go away within a day after your procedure.

Because your skin is extra sensitive after a laser hair removal session, it’s a good idea to avoid direct sun exposure for about a week following your treatment.

Are my results permanent?

When your series of laser hair removal treatments is complete, you should find that your unwanted hair is significantly reduced. Because laser hair removal destroys the ability of the hair follicle to produce new hair, these results are permanent.
