Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a treatment for unwanted body hair. Removing your body hair is a personal, aesthetic choice, and laser hair removal allows you to do so with much less maintenance than other methods like shaving or waxing. 

At Meridian Primary Care, the team provides laser hair removal services using the Icon™ laser from Cynosure®. The laser clears away body hair without causing skin damage and with minimal discomfort. It targets the pigment in your body hair and heats the follicles until they’re unable to grow hair. 

Which parts of my body can I target with laser hair removal?

You can target the areas of hair on your body that you may normally shave or wax. During your consultation, you can talk to your provider at Meridian Primary Care about targeting multiple areas or just one hard-to-reach place. Possible treatment areas are:

  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Chest
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Upper lip
  • Chin and jaw

The only place that the team doesn’t advise you to target with a laser is the area around your eyes. Eyebrow hair is better left to a professional wax, threading, or home tweezing. 

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

It takes several sessions to see the complete removal of your body hair. This is because each of your follicles is in a different stage of growth, and each treatment only targets active follicles. Your provider at Meridian Primary Care helps you book three to six treatments to capture all of the body hair you want to remove.

Are the results of laser hair removal permanent?

The results of laser hair removal vary for everyone, but they aren’t always entirely permanent. With each treatment, you see your body hair diminish and become thinner in the areas you target. 

After three to six treatments, you might enjoy hairlessness for several months or even several years. If the hair starts to grow back, it usually does so thinner and finer than before. You can come back to Meridian Primary Care for maintenance treatments if you want to continue removing your body hair with a laser.
