Laser hair removal treatments can save patients time and money in the long term because it removes hair and prevents treated hair follicles from producing more hair. As more and more people grow tired of constantly shaving unwanted body hair, laser hair removal has become an increasingly popular aesthetic treatment for both men and women. DermAesthetica Med Spa offers laser hair removal treatments for removal of unwanted hair on the face, legs, underarms, bikini line, back and other areas.

How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal uses targeted laser energy to disable hair follicles and prevent them from producing more hair. At DermAesthetica Med Spa, we use the Fotona FRAC3® system for our laser hair removal treatments. The FRAC3® technology uses a Nd: YAG laser to safely and effectively reduce and remove unwanted hair for all skin types and skin tones. This deep penetrating laser offers longer-lasting results than other lasers used for hair reduction and removal and is able to disable the hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. Laser hair removal treatments with the FRAC3® system can reduce unwanted hair in fewer treatment sessions with no downtime.
How many treatments will I need?
Patients typically require between six and eight laser hair removal treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. The number of treatments can vary depending on the size and thickness of hair in the treated area. Multiple laser hair removal treatments are required in order to achieve optimal results because this treatment targets hair in the “active” growth phase and hair in a treated area does not grow at the same pace. Additional periodic treatments may be necessary in order to maintain results. Results may vary.
Are there any side effects?
Some patients may experience some mild redness or swelling in the treated area. These side effects are temporary and typically subside within a few days of a treatment session. We recommend using additional sun protection if you plan to be exposed to the sun for long periods of time, as laser-based treatments can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
Am I a candidate?
Laser hair removal with the FRAC3® system is safe for patients with all skin types and skin tones. Patients with blonde, white, red, or gray hair are not candidates for laser hair removal or other light-based hair removal treatments due to the lack of melanin in the hair follicles. During your initial consultation, we will review your specific case and desired results and recommend the appropriate treatment plan for you.
