Laser hair removal is a cost-effective, long-term solution for removing unwanted body hair, eliminating excess hair growth, and preventing ingrown hairs and razor bumps from anywhere on the body.
What does laser hair removal do?
When performed by an experienced and board-certified dermatologist, laser hair removal safely eliminates unsightly, overgrown hair.
It’s a medical procedure where a laser light beam penetrates the skin, heating the hair follicle and shaft, preventing it from producing new hair.
What to expect with laser hair removal results
Laser hair removal is permanent, and the hair follicle will no longer produce hair. Results vary depending on treatment area and how many hair removal sessions you complete.
Following the procedure, existing hair will begin to detach naturally from the follicle and fall out on its own. New hair will not grow back in its place, and if it does, it’ll be minimal. Because hair grows in cycles, it takes multiple laser hair removal treatments to stop all (or most) hair growth.
Refrain plucking before, during or directly after laser hair removal sessions. Plucking could damage the follicle. For best results, treated hair needs to fall out naturally.
After 1-2 treatments, you’ll begin to see reduced hair regrowth. If you still experience hair growth around the treated area, it’ll be thin, fine and sparse.
Which laser hair removal is best for you?
There are many lasers on the market capable of performing hair removal. They’re not all created equal, and technology has vastly changed over the years. Most hair removal lasers work best on dark hair and light skin. When misused and on the wrong skin color, the laser treatment can cause hyperpigmentation (brown or red spots) and scarring.
Dr. Gandhi is a highly sought after laser expert. He has several devices to treat all hair and skin types. The lasers have a cooling effect on the skin, so they’re virtually painless and are very fast, effective treatments.

You can return to normal daily activity right away but refrain from working out for at least 24 hours.
We do recommend staying away from the sun and UV exposure ad using sunscreen to protect the area.
Side effects are rare, but patients have reported irritation or tiny red bumps on the hair removal area on occasion. These symptoms are treatable with ice or aloe and will likely reside within a few hours.
