Bikini/Brazilian Laser Hair Removal

Finding the right Bikini/Brazilian hair removal technique is frustrating. Traditional shaving can leave  bumps and razor burn. Waxing is especially painful in this area and hair grows back quickly. Thanks to advances in laser technology however, more women are discovering a non-invasive solution to removing unwanted bikini hair. Bikini/Brazilian laser hair removal - more accurately described as laser hair reduction offers a solution to removing hair around the bikini line.  Learn what Bikini/Brazilian laser hair removal in Westchester NY can do for you today!

How does bikini laser hair removal in Westchester NY work?

Our office uses the advanced Palomar Vectus laser to target stubborn Bikini/Brazilian hair. The Palomar Vectus laser provides fast, uniform hair removal based on your individual hair density, color, and diameter through a built in melanin reader. Once the reader registers your unique hair features, the laser will automatically adjust to the safest settings in order to gently disrupt the hair follicle’s growth therefore slowing the growth of future hair follicles. 
There may be mild discomfort during the treatment, but almost all patients tolerate laser hair removal with ease. No anesthetic is needed. Typical responses may vary. Although the procedure is referred to as laser hair removal, it is really laser hair reduction. As a general rule of thumb: If you currently have to shave every day/every other day; then after you finish a laser package, you might have to shave 1-2 times per month.

How many Bikini/Brazilian laser hair removal sessions will I need?

Bikini/Brazilian laser hair removal is performed over a series of sessions. Multiple laser treatments are necessary because at any given time, a certain percentage of hairs are in a resting (telogen) phase, rather than a growth (anagen) phase. Laser Hair Removal is not effective on resting hairs, which is why several treatments are necessary in each area to achieve maximum results. On average, most patients can expect six sessions before hair removal expectations are met.
When the correct laser is used, laser hair removal in Westchester NY is safe for all skin types and shades. Multiple sessions, typically 4-8 weeks apart, are necessary to obtain the desired response. Laser hair removal works best on thick, dark hair.

Underarm Laser Hair Removal

The underarm area is an area of the body where hairs grow in several different directions and multiple follicles may have different thickness characteristics. Now, we can effectively target underarm hair and reduce the rate of growth for underarm hair with underarm laser hair removal. Learn how underarm laser hair removal works when you are here for your consultation. 

How does underarm laser hair removal work at your Westchester office?

The Palomar Vectus laser emits a beam of light at a wavelength that targets the melanin (color) in the hair. The light beam is absorbed by the pigment, which damages the follicle enough to delay future growth.
 Multiple sessions, typically 4-8 weeks apart, are necessary to obtain the desired response. Laser hair removal works best on thick, dark hair.
There may be mild discomfort during the treatment, but almost all patients tolerate laser hair removal with ease. Typical responses may vary. Although the procedure is referred to as laser hair removal, it is really laser hair reduction. As a general rule of thumb: If you currently have to shave every day/every other day; then after you finish a laser package, you might have to shave 1-2 times per month.

How many underarm laser hair removal sessions will I need?

The underarm area is one of the fastest areas to respond to laser hair removal. On average, most patients can expect three to six sessions before hair growth is significantly reduced.

Leg Hair Laser Hair Removal

Legs respond great to laser hair removal, but they may also respond the slowest.  A treatment is typically done once every 6 weeks...but this may vary.   The same precautions apply to this area as much as they do to any other area, in terms of no tanning and the avoidance of certain creams and home laser systems. A typical session takes about 25 minutes to complete, and it includes the front and back of the legs. Leg hair may often be replaced by very fine, thin hair that may be blonde or very light in color, after the treatment. This type of hair may NOT respond to further laser sessions.

Full Arms Laser Hair Removal

The arms respond as well as any other location on the body, and this is one area, as well as the back, that can truly improve one's self-confidence. This area requires even more caution, as the arms typically have a different shade of skin as compared to the rest of the body. However, our Palomar Vectus laser and Skintel melanin reader can adjust to this without any problems.  Since arms are typically a place for a tattoo, remember, we cannot laser over a tattoo. 
A session takes about 25 minutes and it's typically one session every 6 weeks. Full arms includes the forearms and the Bicep region up to, but not including, the shoulder area.

Sessions are usually once every 6 weeks, but it may be once every 8-10-12 weeks depending on the growth cycle.  The area includes the nape or the back of the neck if desired.

With the Palomar Vectus laser system; a total body laser hair removal session can be completed in a little under an hour…sometimes even 45 minutes. Sessions are typically spaced 6-8 weeks apart and usually only 6 sessions are needed to achieve maximal results.
