How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery offers two unique procedures for patients seeking long-term hair removal. Candela GentleLase PRO represents the gold standard for laser hair removal, as it is fast, effective, and painless to use. Dr. Craig is also pleased to offer Candela GentleYAG PRO for clients with darker skin tones and hard-to-treat hairs.
Dr. Craig uses Syneron Candela GentleLase PRO laser hair removal for clients with medium to light skin tones. The GentleLase PRO uses a handpiece to deliver laser light energy to the unwanted hair follicles. After a few passes, the thermal energy damages hair follicles, causing them to fall out over time. With repeated treatments, hair follicles no longer grow back, resulting in longer time periods between shaves.
For clients with darker skin tones, Dr. Craig uses the Candela GentleYAG PRO to target hair follicles. GentleYAG is one of the few lasers that can accurately target darker hair follicles without damaging surrounding skin, which may be close in color to the hair follicle shade. Like the GentleLase PRO, GentleYAG damages the hair follicles via thermal wavelengths, causing it to fall out. Eventually, hair growth is slowed to the point where clients can enjoy several weeks between shaves.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
With two distinct laser hair removal options, almost anyone is a viable candidate. It should be noted that all laser hair removal is unsuccessful on blonde or white hair. Laser hair removal is quick, easy, and doesn’t require any downtime making it ideal for patients with busy lifestyles. We’re able to comfortably nix unwanted hair on even the most sensitive areas including:
- Upper Lip
- Bikini Area
Essentially anywhere you’d like to see silky smooth skin can benefit from laser hair removal. Dr. Craig will help determine your candidacy for the procedure and create a personalized treatment plan based on your short and long-term goals.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?*
Both laser hair removal technologies take between 15-minutes to 1-hour, depending on the treatment area. Both lasers use an integrated cooling device to help manage any discomfort associated with hair removal.
What Results Will I See?*
While some hair may fall out immediately, it can take 2-weeks for follicles to die and fall out after each treatment. Most patients will need 7 treatments to see ideal results. Hair will appear thinner and less noticeable with each consecutive treatment.
Laser hair removal is only able to address hair follicles that are in their active growth phase. Therefore, treatments are typically spaced 4-8 weeks apart.
You should see an optimal outcome several weeks after your last treatment, at which point hair regrowth will slow down. You’ll begin to enjoy longer periods of time between shaving and in some cases, hair won’t grow back at all.

Is There Any Downtime?
You won’t need any time off for recovery after laser hair removal. In fact, you can go about your typical day-to-day routine immediately following treatment with minimal restrictions. You may experience redness, swelling, or tenderness at the treatment site for up to 1-week. Skin will be extra-sensitive to UV-rays so a quality sunscreen is a must throughout treatment.
