Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is an innovative aesthetic treatment that permanently gets rid of your unwanted hair so you no longer have to shave, wax, or tweeze.
Dr. Dimowo uses the xeo laser to remove hair from your:
The energy created by the xeo laser has the ability to target the hair follicles under your skin, destroying them and stopping further hair growth.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
Dr. Dimowo and his team at California Pain Regenerative & Wellness Physicians provide specific instructions on how to prepare for laser hair removal.
Because the laser targets the follicle under your skin, Dr. Dimowo advises that you not pluck or wax your hair for at least a month prior to starting your treatment.
These hair-removing techniques often remove the follicle with the hair, which may make your treatment less effective. You may also be advised to avoid tanning and tanning lotions prior to your treatment.
What can I expect during laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal with the xeo laser at California Pain Regenerative & Wellness Physicians is fast and effective, and it’s no more painful than tweezing or waxing your hair.
During your session, your aesthetic specialist places the xeo wand over the treatment area, then quick pulses of light target the follicles. You may experience what’s described as a rubber band-like sensation as the energy destroys your follicle.
The length of your treatment varies depending on the site of your treatment but may take from a few minutes to around an hour. You should notice smoother skin immediately following your session.
Do I need more than one laser hair removal treatment?
Yes, you need more than one laser hair removal treatment to get the best results. Hair grows in cycles, and you may need a series of treatments set at four- to 16-week intervals depending on the area being treated.
While laser hair removal is a permanent solution to unwanted hair, you may continue to notice fine, thin hair growing in the treatment area. Dr. Dimowo recommends you come to the office as needed for touch-up treatments to manage such growth.
