Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Lasers direct light energy into your hair follicles precisely where you want to remove hair without damaging the surrounding skin. Rapid, intense pulses of laser light target your hair follicles. The thermal energy damages your hair and it’s unable to grow back. This treatment leaves surrounding skin unharmed because the pigment in your hair absorbs the laser light.

The team at Chappell Rosso Dermatology and Laser & Aesthetic Center of the Permian Basin use the most advanced laser technology for hair removal. The excel HR™ laser is the industry standard in laser hair removal because it uses a combination of wavelengths for the most effective results. It works on black and brown hairs, all skin types and even removes fine hair.

What areas can I treat with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an ideal solution for nearly every area of your body where you’d like to remove unwanted hair, including:

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

Multiple sessions typically deliver the longest-lasting results because your hair grows in different stages. You discuss your desired results during your consultation and the team customizes a treatment plan based on your skin and hair color.

What can I expect during a laser hair removal session?

During a laser hair removal appointment, you wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser’s intense light. Your provider uses a handheld device they press gently against your skin to deliver the laser energy to the treatment area.

Typically, the laser feels like a rubber band snapping against your skin as energy pulses penetrate your hair follicles below the surface. The excel HR laser uses a unique cooling system to maximize your comfort and safety, so most adults feel minimal discomfort during the procedure.

Laser hair removal takes just a few minutes to treat a small area, like your upper lip or underarms, though larger areas like your legs, back, or chest may take an hour or more.

Afterward, your skin may appear red, like a mild sunburn, but this usually goes away in a few hours. You should avoid the sun for a few days after treatment too. Once your hair is gone, it shouldn’t grow back, and you can put an end to time-consuming shaving, waxing, and plucking.

The results are long-lasting, and, for many, it’s a permanent solution to removing unwanted hair.
