Laser Hair Removal Q & A

Is laser hair removal right for me?

If you're tired of the constant shaving or the endless series of waxing appointments, laser hair removal might be a great option to think about. When you consider the amount of time and money that other types of hair removal cost over a lifetime, laser hair removal comes out as the clear winner.

Most patients who want lasting hair reduction are good candidates for laser hair removal. The only color of hair that can't be removed is white/grey because it has no pigment for the laser to target.

Where on my body can I have laser hair removal?

You can get hair removal in just about any spot where there's unwanted hair. This usually includes:

  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Above lip (mustache)

If you have unwanted hair in more than one area, you can get laser hair removal in both places, so you can finally put the razors away for good.

What is the laser hair removal process like?

For laser hair removal at Open Water Medical, your care provider gives you goggles that protect your eyes from the laser light. Your care provider then targets each hair follicle with the laser handpiece.

The Icon laser light seeks out the melanin inside hair follicles. Once your melanin absorbs the light, it heats up and then breaks apart into many tiny particles that your body eliminates naturally. At the same time that the heat destroys your melanin, it permanently damages your hair follicle so it can't produce new hair.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

No, CynoSure Icon laser hair removal is virtually painless. You may have a noticeable sensation of warmth during treatment, but that's offset by the Advanced Contact Cooling™ system that chills your skin after each laser pulse. If you have sensitive skin, your Open Water Medical care provider can apply a numbing cream to ensure your comfort during laser hair removal.

How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?

Most patients get the desired results with around three to six total treatment sessions. Your care provider can estimate total treatment sessions before you get started.

Don't keep wasting time and money on shaving and waxing. With laser hair removal, you can put those constant hair removal worries behind you. Click the online scheduler or call Open Water Medical to make your laser hair removal appointment now.
