What is laser hair reduction and removal?

Lasers are a type of concentrated light that is used in many areas of medicine today. Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee is excited to use laser light energy to help patients address unwanted hair on the face and body. With laser treatments, patients can permanently reduce or remove hair. But what is the difference between hair reduction and hair removal?

When it comes to laser hair treatments, we offer both reduction and removal. Both are performed with the same device. The difference is the number of treatment sessions performed. Patients who want to reduce the thickness of hair in and area, such as the chest or back, will have less treatments that an individual who wants complete removal of hair in the treatment area. With each treatment, patients will notice less and less hair visible in the area. The hair removed will no longer grow back as the laser light penetrates the hair follicle and damages it. This means that without any further treatment, these hairs will not return. When patients continue to have treatments done, spaced several weeks apart to target all hair in the active growth phase, they will see a dramatic improvement in the thickness of the hair present.
