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 Reviews
Dr. James is awesome, he was able to get taken care of extremely quickly. I’ve been in for laser removal and stitches. The office is very comfortable and the staff is kind and helpful. Definitely recommend!
I went in for a CO2 laser treatment for acne scarring on my nose and cheeks. Dr. James was very receptive to working on the areas that were most bothersome. I am currently 7-weeks post treatment and have been very pleased with the results thus far. My skin is smoother and less red. Dr. James is a very friendly and skilled doctor to work with. I encourage anyone looking to undergo laser treatments to seek out Dr. James for their future procedures.

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.
Is laser hair removal suitable for all skin types?
Laser hair removal at Providence Dermatology is adaptable to various skin types. Our advanced technology safely targets hair follicles while preserving skin integrity, making it a versatile solution for many different skin tones.
What is the duration of a typical laser hair removal session?
The time for each session varies depending on the treatment area. Smaller areas like the upper lip may take only a few minutes, while larger areas like the back or legs might require a longer session. Our Providence, UT team ensures efficient and precise treatment.
Can I shave before my laser hair removal appointment?
Yes, we actually recommend shaving the treatment area before your laser hair removal session. This helps enhance the effectiveness of the procedure and minimizes discomfort.
