Laser Hair Removal in Minneapolis-St. Paul

Unwanted hair can be endlessly frustrating. Whether it’s shaving, plucking, or waxing, it’s likely you spend far more time removing hair than you’d like to – not to mention the cost to your wallet. Laser hair removal is one increasingly popular treatment option for men and women alike to reduce unwanted hair growth and achieve easier removal at home.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

We now offer laser hair removal, a fast, no-downtime procedure that reduces natural hair growth with our new Diolaze technology. Among its many benefits, this system damages hair growth mechanisms in a very short time with maximum cooling comfort. Diolaze makes laser hair removal effective for all skin types, even sensitive skin.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal works by generating heat within the hair follicle by administering light energy. The light energy is absorbed by the pigment in each hair shaft where it travels into the follicle in the skin. There, it heats up and damages the natural hair growth mechanisms that produce more hair. Once damaged, the follicles become less effective at producing new growth. Over time and with multiple treatments throughout the hair growth cycle, follicle function can be slowed drastically or even completely reduced.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

There can be some discomfort during laser hair removal. While some patients can tolerate it, we can supply a topical numbing agent so that you’re relaxed and comfortable during treatment. Most patients report that the process feels like the ‘snap’ of a rubber band.

What Happens During Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal can be performed right in our Minneapolis-St. Paul practice. You’ll begin by discussing your goals with Dr. Rocheford and our non-surgical team to create the right treatment approach for you and your goals. Then, you’ll relax while a topical numbing cream is applied. You’ll be given protective eye shields as well. Finally, treatment will begin and the specialized handpiece is applied to your treatment area. The length of your treatment session will depend on the size of your treatment area, with small areas like the upper lip taking as little as fifteen minutes total while larger areas like the back can take an hour or more. Afterward, you can return home.
