On average, it takes six to 10 laser hair removal sessions to attain hair-free, silky-smooth skin. And depending on the area treated, it may take around 13 weeks to see the final results.
Therefore, if you’re determined to skip the pain of waxing or shaving for next spring, it’s a good idea to start early!
Laser hair treatments are FDA-approved, but many people still have questions about the safety and effectiveness of laser technology.
To help you get a better understanding of how lasers remove unwanted hair follicles, we asked our specialist at Medical Aesthetics & Laser, Dr. Safoora Zaka, to explain what laser hair removal is, how it works, and who can benefit from it.
How laser hair removal works and who can benefit from it
Dr. Zaka removes hair with the Icon laser technology, which uses short bursts of heat to destroy the roots of hair follicles.
Once the roots are destroyed, they can’t regenerate. Typically, treatments are customized based on the patient’s genetic makeup and thickness of the hair follicles, and hormonal imbalances that may encourage excess hair growth are also taken into account.
As long as you aren’t pregnant or don’t have ongoing skin conditions, you’re most likely a good candidate for laser hair removal. Owing to advancements in laser technology, people of all skin types can now enjoy laser hair removal treatments.
Areas targeted by laser hair removal
At Medical Aesthetics & Laser, Dr. Zaka can help you remove hair on your bikini line, legs, arms, underarms, chest, back, upper lip, and chin. If you want to remove hair follicles in another area, feel comfortable to discuss your cosmetic goals with Dr. Zaka, as she often gets requests as such.

Don’t let life catch you unprepared. Whether it’s a short-notice invitation to a pool party or dinner with friends, you want to look your best. However, shaving and waxing takes time, and the results aren’t always the best.
Shaving often leads to irritated and sensitive skin, and it may even leave you with skin bumps and ingrown hair. Waxing is time consuming, painful, and may leave your skin red and slightly inflamed, which can make it difficult to use this method if you’re in a rush.
