Dermaplaning is a non-invasive manual exfoliation treatment that can be used to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin, reduce the appearance of acne scarring, and improve the appearance of fine lines. This exfoliating treatment removes dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and the fine vellus hair, or peach fuzz, from the surface of the skin to reveal brighter, smoother skin.
This aesthetic treatment uses targeted laser energy to permanently destroy hair follicles and prevent future hair growth. Laser hair removal treatments target hair in the active growth phase of the hair follicle, so multiple treatment sessions are required in order to disable all the hair follicles in a designated treatment area.
Am I a candidate?
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment for patients of all skin tones and types. Patients with light hair colors, including blonde, red, gray, and white, are not candidates for any laser or light-based hair removal treatments because of the lack of melanin in the hair follicles. We will determine if laser hair removal is an option for you during your initial consultation.
What should I do before my laser hair removal appointment?
In order to achieve the best results, we recommend you avoid excessive sun exposure for at least four weeks prior to your treatment as you are not eligible for laser hair removal treatments if you are tanned or sunburned. Patients should also refrain from getting a spray tan or using tanning lotion prior to a laser hair removal appointment. We encourage our patients to shave the day before a laser hair removal session, but you should avoid waxing or plucking the treated area prior to your appointment, as these hair removal treatments remove the hair follicle that laser hair removal targets.
Common treatment areas include:
- Bikini area
How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?
Most patients require a series of at least six to eight treatments scheduled about four to six weeks apart in order to achieve optimal hair removal. This number can vary from patient to patient depending on the thickness of hair in the treated area and the size of the area being treated. You may require periodic follow-up treatments in order to maintain the results of your laser hair removal treatments.
