Laser hair removal is a popular treatment option among both men and women, and for a good reason. Procedures typically take less time than traditional waxing and many patients find treatment to be quite comfortable both during and after. Safely and effectively achieve long-term hair removal throughout the face and body with quick and easy laser treatments.
Each treatment targets the pigmentation within the hair’s follicle eventually causing it to fall out. Surrounding tissue remains completely unharmed throughout the process. At Derma-Tech Medical Spa, we use powerful, yet gentle Lumenis LightSHEER DUET laser treatments to achieve lasting results you’ll love.
What Results Can You Expect?
Laser hair removal treatments are spaced according to your hair’s natural growth phases. In most cases, we will schedule your treatments 4-6 weeks apart for face and neck and 6-8 weeks apart for hair removal below the neck. Because hair falls out at the root, laser hair removal is a much longer-lasting alternative to shaving. Most patients see the majority of hair loss immediately following their initial appointment. However, it can take up to 2-weeks for residual hairs to die off.
You may need anywhere from 5-8 treatment sessions to achieve your ideal results. Once your series of treatments is complete, you can expect to remain virtually hair-free. Some clients may experience a slight amount of sparse regrowth a year or two after completion of a treatment series. In this instance, a touch up treatment may be needed once a year to maintain results. Hairs that have been damaged with laser treatments typically do not grow back, although regrowth is possible.
Hair does not grow back slower after laser hair removal. However, you will have fewer noticeable follicles with each consecutive growth phase. Hair will appear finer and more sparse after every laser hair removal treatment. Each session brings better, longer-lasting results giving you the confidence you need to wear the clothing you want.

Lasting Results Without Downtime
Laser hair removal is a no-downtime procedure. Treatments take just a few minutes, and you can immediately get back to your normal day-to-day activities with minimal restrictions. Side effects are typically short-lived but may include redness, or a sensation similar to that of a day in the sun. A broad-spectrum sunscreen should be applied to protect treatment areas.
Laser hair removal works best for medium to light skin tones and is not effective on light blonde or grey hair. At the time of your initial consult, one of our laser specialists can assess your skin tone and customize a treatment plan to help you effectively meet your ultimate goals. One of our professionals will speak with you in-depth about what you can expect from your laser hair removal treatments so you can make an informed decision about what’s right for you.
