How does laser hair removal work?
Laser energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle and converted to heat, diffusing to and injuring stem cells in bulb and bulge. Most hair is permanently removed. Hair that does regrow is finer and lighter than before.
What areas can be treated?
Any area, except adjacent to the eye, where there is excess hair. The most common areas requested are the face, upper lip, neck, chest, breast, underarms, back, abdomen, bikini line and legs.
How many treatments are required?
Everyone will need at least 4-6 treatments. Some individuals will need 6-8 laser treatments. Skin, hair coloring and coarseness of hair are all contributing factors to how many treatments will be needed. Contact our office for a complimentary consultation to discuss laser hair removal.

Is laser hair removal for men too?
Yes, laser hair removal is great for men and women of all ages. Most popular areas for men are chest, back, neck, facial areas and abdomen. Many athletic men enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal as a way to achieve better athletic results. Additionally, men who have gained a level of fitness and muscle tone do not want to hide their attractive muscles behind a thick coating of hair. Laser hair removal is a great alternative to shaving.
What will it cost for laser hair removal for me?
Treatment cost varies with the size of the area treated, with an average of four treatment sessions initially recommended. Large areas, such as the entire back or legs, cost more. Small areas, such as the upper lip, can be less. Individual consultation with the MD Laser Skin Care doctor is necessary to obtain exact pricing.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
We consider the treatment as permanent hair reduction rather than hair removal. The laser treatment destroys the hair which is actively growing. Some hair which is in a resting stage will not be affected. Hence the need for multiple treatments. More treatments may be required for slow growing areas such as the back as compared to the chin.
Are there side effects?
Redness in the area treated may occur transiently. Temporary skin pigment changes may occur especially in patients who have tanning or have had significant recent exposure to the sun. MD Laser SkinCare will screen you for such possible side effects in the free initial consultation.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The feel of the laser on the skin has been described in many different ways. Some say it feels like a pinch on the skin. Others say it feels like a mild rubber band snap or it feels cool. Each procedure is customized to individual skin type and pain threshold. Dr. Bajwa may use a topical numbing cream in addition to air cooling to make the procedure comfortable.
All procedures are supervised by Dr. Navjot Bajwa, MD.
