Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an in-office procedure that the team at Southwest Family Medicine Associates offers to address unwanted body hair on your:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Face
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Bikini line

The team uses Fotona’s FRAC3® technology that delivers laser energy into the hair follicles below the surface of your skin. The energy destroys the structure of the treated follicles, so hair can no longer grow.


Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?

To ensure you can tolerate laser hair removal, your Southwest Family Medicine Associates provider reviews your medical history and evaluates the health of your skin. If you have an active infection or other chronic skin condition, laser hair removal may not be right for you.

Your Southwest Family Medicine Associates provider may recommend laser treatments to remove unwanted body hair if you have reasonable expectations for your results. The FRAC3 technology is both safe and effective for all skin types and colors.


How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

The FRAC3 laser system can only treat hair follicles in the active growth phase. For this reason, you can expect to have several laser treatments spaced a few weeks apart to treat all hair follicles and achieve optimal results.

Your Southwest Family Medicine Associates provider can create a timeline for treatments based on the color and thickness of your hair, as well as the treatment location.

The aesthetics team performs laser hair removal treatments in-office for your convenience and ensures that you’re comfortable throughout your appointment.

Following your treatment, your Southwest Family Medicine Associates provider recommends a high-quality moisturizer to prevent flaking. You also need to wear sunscreen daily to protect your skin health.


How long do the results of laser hair removal treatments last?

Once the FRAC3 laser system destroys the hair follicles in the treatment area, they can no longer grow hair. This means that once you complete your laser hair removal treatments, you can expect permanent results.

While the laser technology is powerful enough to eliminate unwanted hair, treatments don’t cause damage to the surrounding skin tissue. You may experience mild redness in the treatment area that resolves on its own within several days.

Immediately after your laser sessions, you can go back to work or your usual activities without any limitations.
