We are all familiar with having to shave. Whether it is our face, legs, arms, underarms, head, or bikini line, we want to remove unwanted hair from time to time.

You will not have to worry about red bumps, little nicks and cuts, or accidentally cutting more than you wanted. Let us help you save time and simplify your routine with our laser hair removal service in Dothan AL.
Laser Hair Removal Treatment in Dothan AL
The rate of hair growth depends on several factors, including nutrition, genetics, and medication. It is this fast growth rate that leads many to want to go the route of laser hair removal. Hair keeps on growing, and it can seem like there is nothing you can do but to keep shaving, but this is not the case.
Our Dothan AL laser hair removal for the face is a popular service, but we offer much more than that. Laser hair removal is effective for your legs, bikini line, and many other areas of your body. For those who want to be silky smooth from head to toe, check out our full body laser hair removal services offered in our Dothan AL office.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works because the heat from the laser causes damage to the hair follicle and hair root. During laser hair removal treatment, the high-concentration beam of light damages hair follicles to inhibit future hair growth. That means you stay smooth and silky for much longer than with other methods, including shaving, tweezing, and electrolysis. Our treatment can provide excellent results for your legs, underarms, bikini line, and face.
No hair removal treatment is permanent, but the results of our laser hair removal treatment may last for months or years. Our experts have developed a high-quality laser hair removal treatment that should provide exceptional, long-lasting results for all adults.
Our team is trained in the removal of hair for a variety of skin types and hair colors. These factors will vary the treatment required, but you can rest assured that we can adapt our methods to provide you with optimum results.
Because each person has individual needs and different circumstances, our hair removal team will take care to discuss treatment with you. This will make sure that you understand what we can achieve and how you can help make the treatment as effective as possible.
How You Can Help the Process
In general, patients can do several things before treatment to ensure that the process goes smoothly:
- Avoid Sun Exposure – Before your laser hair removal treatment, it is recommended to avoid sunlight as long as possible. When going out, it is wise to use an SPF 30 sunscreen. This will keep your skin in the optimum condition for the treatment.
- Do Not Darken Your Skin – Tanning creams are to be avoided before laser hair removal treatment. Darker skin can make laser hair removal more challenging.
- Avoid Other Hair Removal Techniques – While you may be impatient to get rid of hair, our laser hair removal treatment will work best when your hair follicles are undisturbed. Avoid plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for at least a month before your first laser treatment session.
- Shave – It is a good idea to shave the area 24 hours before you are scheduled to come in. By shaving surface hair, you will avoid burnt hairs, and the intense light from the laser can better penetrate the hair follicles.
The sensation of laser hair removal has been described as being like receiving tiny pinpricks or having a small elastic band snapping against the skin. Before the treatment begins, our team may apply a topical anesthetic or cooling gel to reduce skin discomfort during the hair removal. Hair removal itself will take place with a hand-held laser.
Steps to Take After Hair Removal Treatment
After the treatment, you may observe some redness or swelling. This typically lasts only for a few hours, and you can ease any discomfort with ice.
Between treatments, we recommend that you observe similar precautions to the weeks preceding the treatment. Avoid sunlight, do not use a tanning bed, and apply SPF 30 sunscreen every day.
Your hairs will not fall out right away, but rather over the next few days or weeks. It is difficult to accurately predict exactly how the hair loss will occur, except to say that your hair loss should be effective with a little patience and repeated sessions. It should last at least a few months and may last for years.
Eventually, the hair will regrow, at which point it is likely to be lighter in color and finer in texture than before.
