Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal uses a laser beam to target pigment located in your hair follicles. It’s the most practical, efficient, and least painful hair removal method and significantly reduces hair growth.

Intense pulsed light from the laser injures hair follicles, which stunts hair growth and causes it to fall out in the treated area. Fortunately, laser hair removal doesn’t damage surrounding tissues on your face or body. It works on all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Laser hair removal is commonly used on the legs, upper lip, face, underarms, and bikini line. It’s a great option for people with excessive hair growth that's hard to maintain with waxing, plucking, or shaving.

What causes excessive hair growth?

Numerous factors contribute to excessive hair growth, including heredity, taking certain medications, and hormonal factors. You may notice unwanted hair on your:

  • Face
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Legs
  • Bikini line
  • Underarms
  • Chest


Fortunately, you don’t have to live with unwanted hair that lowers self-esteem. The team of experts at Kamala Aesthetics can treat any area with excessive hair growth, except your eyelids. After laser hair removal, you’ll look and feel your best and gain the confidence you deserve.

What should I expect during a laser hair removal session?

Before a laser hair removal session, the staff at Kamala Aesthetics instructs you to:

  • Avoid waxing and tweezing for six weeks prior
  • Steer clear of UV exposure for seven days prior to treatment
  • Shave hair in the treated area right before your visit


A certified laser practitioner performs laser hair removal, which usually takes 15 to 45 minutes. The pulse from the laser may feel like a warm rubber band snap. A cooling device on the laser comfortably cools your skin on contact to protect it while the laser energy damages hair follicles.

The team of professionals at Kamala Aesthetics may recommend a total of six treatments for best results, spaced 4-6 weeks apart for facial hair or 6-8 weeks apart for unwanted body hair.

Are there any side effects?

After your treatment, you may notice:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Tenderness
  • Small bumps


Your skin may feel like it has a mild sunburn for a day or two, but applying ice packs to the area helps ease discomfort. Avoid UV exposure for seven days after a laser hair removal session.
