Laser Hair Removal: History and Quick Facts

Just how much do people prefer laser hair removal? Here are a few quick facts about laser hair removal since its inception:

  • Laser hair removal has been tested since the 1960s and was first approved by the FDA in 1995.
  • The procedure had 71% patient satisfaction in 2003, and the technology has advanced significantly since then.
  • In a 2012 survey, laser hair removal was voted as the preferred hair removal method for people with a darker skin complexion.
  • More than one million laser hair removal procedures were performed in 2016, making it one of the top 5 non-surgical procedures performed that year.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal uses a laser system, such as the Soprano XL Diode Laser system used by Sona, to target dark pigmentation, such as that found in dark, coarse hair. The laser emits light energy that travels down the hair shaft to the follicle. The heat from the light damages the follicle to stop future hair growth.

Results are long-lasting, but hair follicles that are damaged rather than destroyed will continue to grow hair. The new hair is more likely to grow back much thinner and lighter.

At Sona, we use laser hair removal in Dallas on areas big and small on the body, including:

Laser Hair Removal Target Areas

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

What to Expect: Dallas Laser Hair Removal with Sona

Sona Dermatology & MedSpa centers offer one-of-a-kind service to their clients due to extensive training and experience. As one of Sona’s two most popular treatments, laser hair removal is performed at an expert level with your well-being in mind. In Texas, Sona medical providers are credentialed NPs, RNs, LPNs, and aestheticians, and all providers are overseen by a physician.

You will get the best advice and guidance throughout the treatment process, from consultation to aftercare.

Consultation

When you book a free consultation, you’ll speak about a number of things with a Sona professional, including:

  • How the treatment works and what to expect
  • Pre-treatment care and instructions
  • Your personal hair removal goals
  • Pricing
  • Answers to your questions

Sona also makes scheduling appointments very convenient. Sona’s laser hair removal in Dallas and surrounding areas is available on Saturdays and during evening hours. You can even have the treatment performed during your lunch hour.

Check-in

When you check in for your appointment, your provider will bring you to the treatment room. You may change into a Sona robe if necessary in a private changing area. You may ask questions at this time as well.

Pre-treatment

Before you are cleared for treatment on that day, your provider will ask you a few more health-related questions. She may need to know if you have taken blood thinners, applied topical anesthetic, or applied a fake tan before your appointment, as these can possibly lead to adverse events.

A laser gel will also be applied before using the laser.

Treatment

Your treatment time will vary based on which areas and how many areas are treated during one appointment.

Post-treatment

Your provider will instruct you on how to best care for the treated area. If you feel any discomfort, you may be offered a topical cream.

Checkout

You should schedule your following appointments about six weeks apart. You will at least need five treatments to see the best results. You can schedule these appointments at the front desk.

How Effective is Laser Hair Removal?

In order to get the smooth, hairless skin that you want, our Sona experts recommend four to eight laser treatments. The results are long-term, but it’s possible for some hair to regrow. In this case, you should expect more treatments.

Not All Hair is Built the Same

Blond, white, gray, and red hair is not ideal for laser hair removal. This is because lighter hair does not have enough pigment for the laser to target. Results will not be as effective. The targeted hair should be dark and coarse as it has more pigment.

Who Has the Best Results?

Patients with lighter skin and darker hair are the candidates with the highest success. Not only is it easier for the laser to target the contrasted hair, but it is also safer for the skin. Darker skin can be a target for the laser due to its pigment.

This does not mean that people of color or patients with darker complexions can’t get laser hair removal treatments. An 810 nanometer diode wavelength (such as the Soprano XL Diode Laser) is recommended, because it is more likely to target the melanin at the root of the hair follicle rather than the melanin in your skin.

At Sona, we use the Fitzpatrick Scale to determine a patient’s skin pigmentation before we recommend any treatments.

Laser Hair Removal for Excess Hair

Excess hair can be hereditary. For women of Mediterranean descent and certain ethnic groups, it can be common to have dark, thick hair on the arms, legs, upper lip, and other parts of the body. Laser hair removal can be a convenient way to reduce and lighten the hair.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal condition that causes women to make extra androgens or male hormones. PCOS can cause hirsutism, or excess hair, in areas where women don’t usually grow much hair, including the chest and face. Women may find laser hair removal to be a necessary relief from hirsutism and more masculine hair growth.

What to Avoid Before and After Laser Hair Removal

Before your procedure, you should avoid tanning (either through sun exposure or tanning beds) to avoid extra pigmentation in your skin that can absorb light from the laser. You should also shave the treatment area before your appointment to allow the laser to better reach the root of the follicle.

After treatment, avoid direct sunlight and tanning. You will have greater sensitivity to the sun (photosensitivity), and you can risk getting a damaging sunburn. You should also avoid deodorant or perfume immediately before or after your procedure.

What Side Effects Could I Experience with Laser Hair Removal?

Side effects from laser hair removal are usually minimal, especially since it is a non-invasive procedure.

Expect the following minor side effects:

  • Discomfort
  • Swelling
  • Redness
