What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular elective services in America. It's a convenient option for long-term hair reduction on the face and/or body. This laser treatment frequently leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and produces great, lasting results compared to other methods. Dr. Travis James at Providence Dermatology in Providence, UT performs safe and fast laser hair removal services with the Soprano® ICE laser by Alma for both men and women in common areas, like the arms, legs, back, face, chest, armpits, and intimate areas.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
At your appointment, you can lie in one of our treatment rooms as areas of your face and body being treated are cleaned to eliminate dirt, oil, and creams. During the procedure, a team member will stretch out the area to provide a direct pathway between the laser and the hair follicle root. The laser beam will focus on and kill the follicle, which prevents it from growing back. On average, you will need 3 – 5 treatments over 4 – 6 weeks to get optimal results. Your appointments are staggered to allow the treated areas time to heal. This also provides time for follicles in the dormant phase to change to the active growth phase so that the laser can be effective. The state-of-the-art Soprano laser technology we use at Providence Dermatology can target the hair follicle alone, which preserves the skin in the treatment area.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal is an effective treatment for long-lasting improvements. While patients can enjoy the procedure's benefits for a long time, it's considered semi-permanent since some hair may be unaffected. However, patients find most of their hair follicles will not grow anymore once their treatment plan is done. If some hairs pop up, it's very easy to deal with. Additional laser treatments may also be needed to address new growth and any stragglers.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Your hair growth occurs in phases. While some hair follicles are growing, other follicles are dormant. Since each follicle is in various stages, multiple treatments are usually needed to target each follicle when it is active. Schedule your treatments over several weeks so you get better, smoother results.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal can cause mild discomfort but isn't considered too painful. Most patients may feel a slight sting as the laser targets and removes the follicle. We can apply a local anesthetic on your skin before the treatment. Patients who have been getting waxed report that laser hair removal feels much less uncomfortable compared to getting waxed.
