The rumors are true: there is now laser hair removal for all skin types in Columbia Maryland.

That’s right, while laser hair removal (LHR) may have been reserved only for certain skin tones in the past, the advancements in laser technology make this now an accessible option for everyone.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is the process of eliminating body hair through a laser light technology.

The laser is able to target a hair follicle at the root and destroy it to prevent it from growing back.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The nature of LHR requires the laser to target the hair at a precise time during the growth phase. Naturally, the hair on your face and body grow at different rates.

Because of this, you will require multiple treatments with LHR until all hairs are targeted for permanent results. Most patients require around six to eight treatments in total.

Treatment Areas

The four treatment areas where LHR is most effective at the bikini line, the lip, chin, and underarms.

Who Is a Good LHR Candidate?

The best candidate for LHR is anyone with dark, coarse, thick hair.

Does It Hurt?

A numbing agent will be applied to the area being treated for a painless session.

Some patients describe their treatments as feeling like a mild pinch.

What Are the Side Effects?

LHR is considered to be a safe treatment as approved by the FDA. However, it is natural to experience some potential side effects.

These may include blistering, discoloration, scarring or redness.
