Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What Exactly is Laser Hair Removal and Should I Get It?

Laser hair removal uses laser light to get rid of hair on your body. It is a medical procedure that requires the user to be trained and certified. Lori Lambert, MD of Orlando is certified in laser hair removal. This ensures she is skilled and experienced in using the high tech equipment for hair removal. If you have facial hair, back hair, leg hair, or hair on your bikini area, laser removal is a possibility. If you have hair on or around your eyes this would be the only area where you might want to avoid using laser hair removal. By using laser beams the hair follicle is damaged, which helps to prevent future hair growth. Some patients see better results than others including lighter skin individuals and those with darker hair. This is due to the contrast in colors that makes it easier to see and remove the individual hairs.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent at Lori Lambert, MD in Orlando?

While laser hair removal does take hair away for a long time, it is not permanent. The laser used for the process burns the hair off at the follicle. This destroys the growth we see along with the follicle. However, over time the follicle repairs itself and new growth returns. For best results we suggest completing multiple removal sessions to remove the unwanted air. These maintenance treatments also help to catch any sudden hair growth, i.e. due to hormonal fluctuations.

Does Laser Hair Removal Work for All Hair Types?

The way the laser works is that it automatically focuses on hair shafts. If you have white, gray, blond, or red hair you may have less success with laser hair removal. The problem is that the laser isn’t able to see hair of these lighter shades.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe for Me to Do?

Yes, laser hair removal is safe for you to do as long as you go to a certified hair removal expert. As you are using lasers to burn away hair there is the possibility of skin irritation. Your hair removal doctor will discuss treatments and remedies to handle any redness, swelling, or discomfort. These signs will generally disappear within a couple of hours.
