How does laser hair removal work?
During your laser hair removal treatment, your Associated Dermatologists practitioner directs the laser onto your skin in the targeted area.
The laser itself focuses on your hair follicles because they’re darker in color than the surrounding skin. As the hair follicles absorb the laser energy, they heat to a point at which they’re permanently destroyed. At that point, the follicle can no longer produce hair.
To get your skin completely hair-free, you’ll need multiple laser hair removal sessions. This is because not all hair follicles are active all the time.
Each treatment only affects active hair follicles, so multiple sessions give your Associated Dermatologists practitioner the greatest opportunity to destroy all of your hair follicles in the targeted area.
Generally, most patients need between six and eight sessions are sufficient to achieve the desired results.
Is laser hair removal right for me?

That said, the team Associated Dermatologists tailors the treatment to deliver the best results for your unique hair and skin.
