About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic services in the United States. It is a convenient way for the long-term removal of hair on the face and body. This laser treatment by GentleMax Pro 1064 with Alexandrite usually leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and provides great, lasting results compared to other options for hair removal. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Reuben Thaker at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness in Las Vegas, NV offers effective and safe laser hair removal treatments for both women and men in commonly desired areas, like the arms, back, legs, face, chest, and intimate areas.

Ideal Candidates

Hair removal with GentleMax Pro 1064 is a gentle treatment that is helpful for most people. At your consultation, you will discuss your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:

  • Have unwanted facial or body hair
  • Are tired of other techniques for hair removal (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
  • Have light skin and dark hair
  • Are in overall good health

Procedure Technique

At your procedure, you will relax in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and creams. During laser hair removal, a technician will smooth out the skin to provide a direct path between the hair follicle root and the laser. The energy from the laser will target and destroy the hair follicle, which prevents it from growing back. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to get your optimal results. Your sessions will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to change to the active growth phase so they can be treated. The revolutionary laser technology we use at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness is able to target the hair follicle alone, which preserves the skin in the treated area.

What to Expect

While this procedure is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a mild sunburn when lasers are used. After your treatment, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from strenuous activity or extended time outdoors for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after your treatment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to minimize any discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does laser hair removal cost?
A laser hair removal treatment varies in cost, depending on the size of the treatment area, plus the number of sessions recommended to attain a smooth result. To help you consider the benefits of choosing laser hair removal, estimate the time and energy you are spending on waxing, shaving, or other temporary hair removal methods. By comparison, laser hair removal is typically less expensive overall and will save you time and energy in the long-run. Our team will create a personalized treatment plan for you that includes the total number of sessions you need and costs.

Is laser hair removal permanent?
An effective treatment, laser hair removal offers long-lasting results. While you can enjoy the benefits of the treatment for years, it's considered semi-permanent because some hair may continue growing. Regardless, patients find the majority of the hair will be dormant after their treatment plan is done and even if stray hairs pop up, it is very easy to manage. Additional laser hair removal treatments can also be scheduled to take care of any stragglers or new growth as well.

Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Follicles grow in cycles. While some hair follicles are in a live growing phase, others are dormant. Since each hair follicle grows in various stages, multiple treatments are usually recommended to target each hair when it is growing. Scheduling your sessions over several weeks will help you get better, smoother results.

Does laser hair removal hurt?
Your laser hair removal session may cause minor discomfort, but it's not considered painful. Most patients feel a slight sting when the laser targets and removes the hair follicle. We can apply a numbing ointment to the surface of the skin prior to the start of the treatment session. For patients who are used to getting waxed, they report that laser hair removal causes much less discomfort than getting waxed.

Which laser is best to remove hair?
There are many great lasers available. Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness offers state-of-the-art hair removal technology for men and women with most hair types and colors. The laser we invested in provides impressive results, and we continue to upgrade our office as newer lasers enter the marketplace. We encourage you to ask us about our laser systems during your initial consultation.
