What Laser Hair Removal at AYA Can & Cannot Do

November 08, 2018 | Blog

Answering your Questions about Laser Hair Removal!Shaving can be a real hassle. In addition to being inconvenient and time-consuming, shaving can be painful and unpleasant as well. This is why laser hair removal has become so popular in recent years. Here at AYA Medical Spa, we perform laser hair removal with the GentleMAX laser from Candela. Although laser hair removal is most commonly applied to the legs, arms, back, bikini area, face, and chest, when performed by our expert laser providers, it can help remove unwanted hair from just about anywhere. To help paint a clearer picture of how this outstanding cosmetic treatment can help patients, here are a few things laser hair removal can and cannot do.

Laser hair removal can be used to reduce the density and thickness of hair from a certain area instead of removing it entirely. However, this is a precise process. It’s important to see a laser hair removal expert like the experts at AYA to avoid unflattering patchiness or spots.

Laser hair removal cannot remove all unwanted hair in one treatment session. Although there are some exceptions, most patients will require multiple laser treatments to achieve the hair removal results they desire. However, it’s important to remember that every patient is different, and the amount of treatments required will depend on the specific area being treated and the type and amount of hair that will need to be removed.

Laser hair removal can help men just as much as it helps women. It’s true. Laser hair removal for men can provide a long-term solution for patients who don’t have the time or patience to shave every day. Some guys turn to laser hair removal as a way to treat unwanted hair on areas like their chest and back. The treatment can also help athletes like swimmers who can’t risk excess body hair slowing them down.

Laser hair removal can provide long-lasting results. No matter how many treatments it takes to achieve the results you desire, the final results of your laser hair removal should last a very long time. That can mean forever in the case of some patients.

When considering laser hair removal, it’s important to see skilled, experienced providers who will be able to deliver a great result regardless of your specific hair type, skin type and tone. AYA is owned and operated by board-certified plastic surgeons and are members of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), the nations foremost authority on cosmetic laser technology.
