Laser Hair Reduction

Are you tired of shaving your bikini line, legs, or underarms? At New Day Aesthetic Medicine, Dr. Eric Jorgenson, ND, offers a solution with laser hair reduction. Laser hair reduction harnesses the power of laser light energy and focuses it directly into your hair follicles, safely & effectively reducing hair growth. This energy increases the temperature in your hair follicle, constricting the follicle & inhibiting further growth.

Over time and with subsequent treatments, your treated hair follicles become thinner and lighter. Laser hair reduction is most effective when there’s a noticeable pigment difference between your skin and hair, as with darker hair and lighter skin.

Laser Hair Reduction FAQ

  • To prepare for laser hair reduction, Dr. Jorgenson recommends that you avoid waxing, plucking, and tweezing your treatment area for at least six weeks before your laser hair reduction. When you pull your hair out, it pulls out the hair bulb. The laser energy can’t focus on the hair follicle without this bulb, and the treatment becomes less effective.

    Along with not pulling out your hair, Dr. Jorgenson also recommends avoiding the sun and tanning beds for at least one month before your appointment. This step is important to reduce your risk of burns and permanent pigment damage.
  • If you’ve had shingles or cold sores in the treatment area, you might need a prophylactic antiviral prescription before starting your laser hair removal treatment. Dr. Jorgenson can prescribe any essential medications if required.

    Additionally, you won’t be able to get laser hair reduction in areas where you have tattoos, primarily because you risk irreversible pigment and skin damage. To ensure laser hair reduction is right for you, Dr. Jorgenson offers complimentary consultations to assess safety concerns and design your treatment plan.
  • When you arrive at New Day Aesthetic Medicine for a laser hair reduction treatment, Dr. Jorgenson will begin by preparing your skin for the process. Before the treatment starts, you’re given eye shields that you must wear for the duration of the procedure. Once everyone is prepared, Dr. Jorgenson stretches your skin taut and uses a handheld device to deliver the laser energy to your hair follicles. The laser hair reduction device features an integrated cooling plate to keep you more comfortable during the procedure. Because of your natural hair growth cycle, Dr. Jorgenson recommends four to six treatments six weeks apart to get optimal hair reduction.
