Laser Hair Removal at Wilmington Laser Hair Removal & Skin Clinic

Laser Hair Removal is a quick way to safely remove unwanted facial and body hair forever.

When you want to remove body hair permanently, laser hair removal is a fantastic option.

Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, tweezing, waxing, and depilatory creams, provide only temporary relief. But with laser hair removal, we can safely and quickly remove unwanted hair forever!

The laser hair removal process works because of how the pigment in the hair follicle is affected by the laser. During the treatment, the laser heats the pigment to destroy the hair follicles while still being gentle enough to do so without damaging the delicate pores or structures of the skin. When repeated over several visits, spaced several weeks apart, you're sure to notice a significant reduction in hair and in many cases, permanent removal!

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

A blast of cooling spray protects the skin an enhances your comfort. The melanin in the hair follicles absorbs light energy and is converted to thermal energy. This effectively destroys hair follicles, stem cells and dermal papillae while leaving the surrounding area unaffected.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

Unlike earlier years of laser hair removal technology, when lasers were unable to see hair on dark skin, our advanced lasers can remove hair on all colors of skin including African American and Middle Eastern ethnicities. It is important to know that lasers can only see dark hair and laser hair removal will not work on white, gray, light red or light blond hair. For those areas, we recommend you see one of our licensed electrologists.

What areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal?

Just about all of them! Wilmington Laser Hair Removal and Skin Clinic's advanced lasers can safely treat any body part except for the small area inside the bony ridge of the eye socket.

What can I expect during my laser skin treatment?

Treatment will take place in the comfort and privacy of your practitioner’s office. First the treatment area will be prepared for the laser; then the treatment follows. You are given safety eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser light.    

During the actual treatment, the our hair removal specialist guides the laser light to the treatment areas with a small hand piece. Each laser pulse is preceded and followed by a short pulse of cooling spray. A treatment could take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour and a half, depending on the area being treated.

Does it hurt?

Some patients may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, sometimes described as the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This mild discomfort resolves in several seconds and is minimized by the high-tech laser’s DCD cooling.   

NOTE:  We recognize that some of the earlier aesthetic lasers delivered painful pulses.  If you have been treated with one of these devices and now fear a similar experience, please give us the opportunity to show you how much more comfortable our state-of-the-art technology can be.

How long does each laser hair removal treatment last?

There are a number of factors determine the length of time for a treatment. We plan for adequate time to go as slowly or as fast as is comfortable and appropriate for each client. 
The size and “topography” of the area treated factors into the time required, as does the amount of preparation. As a general rule, legs and backs take an hour to an hour and a half, while an upper lip or the tops of ears may require eight to 10 minutes. The front of the neck or underarms can take as little as 20 minutes.

How many laser treatment sessions will I need?

The number of treatments needed is different for everyone. We have some clients who are happy after 4 treatments, and a small minority who have needed more than 8. The number of sessions depends on the treatment you require and the condition of your skin. Many factors impact the efficacy of individual laser treatments, including the severity of the condition being treated.

Do I have to sign a contract?

No, absolutely not. Unlike many other laser hair removal clinics, we do not require you to sign a contract. At Wilmington Laser Hair Removal & Skin Clinic, you only pay for treatments that you NEED.

How do I know if laser hair removal treatments are working for me?

You will see results after the VERY FIRST treatment. You will have fewer hairs and they will be finer and weaker. Your skin will be smoother and your hair pores less visible. The results will become more impressive with each successive treatment.
