Laser Q & A

What kinds of aesthetic procedures are lasers used for?

Lasers can treat a variety of aesthetic needs, from minimizing acne scars to removing unwanted hair, to reducing fat cells for body contouring. Some of the most popular laser treatments include:

  • Skin resurfacing
  • Hair removal
  • Intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacials
  • Acne treatments
  • Scar revisions
  • Tattoo removal
  • Cellulite reduction
  • Skin tightening
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Vein reduction

There are numerous kinds of lasers and many of them are tailored to a specific aesthetic application.

 

Who can get aesthetic laser treatments?

Women and men who want to improve the texture, tone, and overall appearance of their skin can get laser treatments. In many applications, the laser technology is safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones. Aesthetic laser treatments are ideal for adults who want to improve the appearance of bothersome areas of their bodies without invasive or surgical procedures and lengthy recovery times.

 

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Most laser hair removal treatments permanently reduce hair from growing back in treated areas. Some women become completely hair-free after treating legs, underarms, or bikini areas, while others notice a significant reduction in hair that does grow back. Laser hair removal treatments permanently reduce the need to shave, wax, or tweeze unwanted hair.

During a laser hair removal treatment, the laser energy penetrates below the surface of your skin to each hair follicle. The pigment in the hair absorbs the light from the laser, which destroys the follicle, so it can no longer produce new hair. Your skin remains undamaged.

Because hair grows in stages, you may need several laser treatments, as this technology works best when hair is in the growth stage. Laser hair removal works on nearly every area of your body, including:

  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Back

The knowledgeable team at Dr. Chow’s Rejuvenation Practice can advise you regarding how many treatments will provide optimal results so you no longer have to worry about areas of unwanted hair.
