Lasers play an important role in treating many conditions that affect the skin, hair, and nails. Dermatologists use lasers to remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively. To perform the procedure, the skin is held taut and the skin is treated with the laser. To remove the hair, most patients need 2 to 6 laser treatments. After finishing the treatments, most patients do not see any hair on the treated skin for several months or even years.  Your dermatologist can tell you when you can safely have laser treatments to maintain the results.

Everyone’s results are different too. How your hair reduces and how long it stays that way are particular to you.
