What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is an incredibly popular treatment that has been around for years. The laser is emitted from a handheld device that targets pigmentation. The laser will travels down the hair shaft and eliminate the hair follicle at its root, which will eliminate future hair growth. It is better to perform this during the wintertime for better results because the lighter your skin tone, the easier it is to find the hair follicle.

Who are the Best Candidates for Laser Hair Removal?

Anyone can be a great candidate for Laser Hair Removal, however, certain characteristics produce better results.

  • Hair and Skin Type: this treatment works very well on patients with pale skin and dark, coarse hair. This contrast allows the hair to be easier targeted.
  • Treatment Area: even though you can get smaller surface areas like facial or pubic hair, larger areas, such as your legs, arms, and back, produce better results.

Unfortunately, there has been no progression in finding a laser out there that will get rid of clear, grey, or light blonde hair.

What’s The First Step?


The first step in getting Laser Hair Removal in Grand Rapids, MI is to contact Advanced Plastic Surgery and schedule your consultation. When you come in for this appointment, you will meet with a member of our aesthetic team. You will be able to discuss the procedure with them, have any questions answered, and address any concerns. They will evaluate the area you’re looking to treat to let you know if you are a good candidate, and if so, they will create your treatment plan.

If you agree with their plan, you can have your session done right after your consultation, but if you feel like you need more time, you are more than welcome to meet with our Patient Coordinator to schedule your treatment.


What to Expect on the Day of Laser Hair Removal

When you are receiving your Laser Hair Removal treatment, we try to keep you as comfortable as possible by using a “chiller” along with some cool ultrasound gel. The service itself kind of feels like little pops or like a rubber band snap that is done to each dark hair follicle. Your first session will typically be the worst because we’re getting rid of the most amount of hair. As you have more sessions, the settings are raised, but there is less amount of hair making the treatment a bit quicker.

Laser Hair Removal Recovery

Laser Hair Removal has a very quick recovery time and you will be able to return to your normal routine after each session. You will need to come back about 8 or more times to ensure that the hair follicle is destroyed. These sessions will be spaced apart by about 4 – 6 weeks, but each session will take less and less time.
