What is Laser Hair Removal?

Instead of removing the actual hair, laser hair removal (LHR) uses laser energy or Broad Band Light (BBL) energy to effectively impair the hair follicle. Treating the source of hair this way halts growth for long periods of time — while it’s not a permanent solution, when hair does grow back, it will be finer, thinner, and far less noticeable. Laser hair removal can be a simpler, more time-effective, and longer-lasting option than traditional hair removal methods, like shaving and waxing.

Our team at Greer Plastic Surgery is dedicated to making sure every patient has a comfortable experience. That’s why we use the advanced BBL Forever Bare and the in-motion technique: together, these quickly and comfortably deliver the precise amount of energy needed to impair hair follicles without damaging skin — letting you walk out the door even faster with less hair and less irritation!

Are You a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

If you’re ready to leave old-school hair removal methods of shaving, waxing, and plucking behind, schedule a free consultation with Greer Plastic Surgery to find out if you qualify for laser hair removal — most ages and skin types qualify!

Laser hair removal works best on those with dark hair and light skin, as dark absorbs energy better than light, and we want to focus energy on follicles holding hair. As hormonal changes can affect treatment, young teens may require a second treatment once puberty is complete, and you should wait to get LHR if you’re pregnant.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

What is laser hair removal treatment like?

Before starting your laser hair removal treatment, we’ll clean the treatment area, then apply gel to help protect the skin and better conduct the laser energy. We also use a numbing cream on more sensitive areas, like the upper lip and armpits. LHR feels like tiny zaps on your skin, and you’ll likely feel a warm sensation from the heat of the laser.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

While it depends on the area treated and your personal pain tolerance, laser hair removal causes minimal discomfort in most cases, especially compared to waxing or plucking. Beyond a warm sensation, most patients say it feels at worst like a rubber band snapping on the skin.

How should you prepare for laser hair removal?

Don’t wax or pluck for at least six weeks prior to laser hair removal. You should also avoid using artificial tanner and stay out of the sun for two weeks before and after the treatment.

Can you shave before laser hair removal?

A common misconception is that you can’t shave before LHR. However, if there is too much hair, the laser will vaporize it and create additional heat, so feel free to shave — just not wax or pluck!

How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?

Since hair follicles go through a growth cycle, laser hair removal requires several treatments to target new follicles. Depending on the area you’re treating, we recommend six to 10 treatments, spaced four to 12 weeks apart.

Will my hair be permanently removed?

Although it varies from patient to patient, laser hair removal typically doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. However, it delays hair growth for long periods of time, and causes hair to regrow much finer and lighter in color when it does return.

How much does laser hair removal cost?

Laser hair removal costs vary depending on the area treated. At Greer Plastic Surgery, a package of six treatments can range from $500 for the upper lip to $1,500 for the lower legs, for example. Our team can help estimate a treatment package for your needs during your consultation.
