Laser Hair Removal FAQ

  • What is Laser Hair Removal?

    Laser hair removal is hair removal through exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. The Candela Elos Plus Motif system uses bipolar radiofrequency (RF) and optical energy modalities to safely and effectively treat all skin types with particular attention to patient comfort via the Sapphire contact cooling device.

  • How does Laser Hair Removal work?

    When the laser is activated, it will go through your skin to the hair follicles. The high level of heat from the laser beam damages the hair follicles, which inhibits hair growth.

     

    how laser hair removal works

  • How much time does the treatment take?

    Treatment time is dependent on the area being treated. It can take anywhere from a few minutes for the upper lip to an hour for treatment on the back.

  • Does the treatment hurt?

    You might feel a warm pinprick, and you will likely feel a sensation of cold from the cooling device or gel.

  • How long is the recovery time after treatment?

    You can have the treatment during your lunch break and return to your regular activities as the procedure is non-invasive with no recovery time.

  • How fast will I see results from laser hair removal treatments?

    You will shed hair over several days to weeks, which may look like continued hair growth. Repeated treatments are needed for maintenance because of the hair growth and loss cycle. Laser treatment works best in the new-growth stage of hair follicles.

  • How long do results from hair removal last?

    Results vary and are difficult to predict. For some patients, hair removal lasts several months or years. However, laser hair removal does not guarantee permanent hair removal. Long-term hair reduction may require periodic maintenance treatments.

PRP For Hair Regeneration

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, stimulates new collagen and cell growth within the body. Platelets are extracted from your blood (drawn before treatment) and injected into the areas of your scalp that have thinning hair. Although PRP is not yet FDA-approved for hair loss, research has been conducted to determine that PRP is effective for age-related hair loss and alopecia areata, an auto-immune skin disease that causes hair loss on the scalp, face, and occasionally other areas of the body.

PRP For Hair Regeneration FAQ

  • What is PRP?

    PRP is considered safe, relatively inexpensive, and is less invasive than surgery. Highly qualified individuals who perform it say it can stimulate the hair follicles and slow down the rate that the patient loses hair.
    The patient’s blood is drawn, processed, and the concentrated platelets and growth factors are utilized for hair restoration.

  • How does PRP work?

    During a PRP procedure, a licensed professional will draw a small amount of blood before beginning treatment. Your blood will run through a centrifuge to separate red blood cells from plasma and concentrate platelets and growth factors. After that 10-minute process, the concentrated PRP will be injected into your scalp. The PRP will increase the blood flow to your hair follicles and stimulate the growth of new hair follicles.

  • How long does the treatment take? Will it hurt?

    The entire process is about 30 minutes. Because the injections are minimally invasive, pain is minimal. We do use prescription-grade topical numbing cream to help alleviate pain.

  • How long is the recovery time after treatment?

    Because the PRP is from your own body and injections are minimally invasive, there is no recovery time. You may resume regular activities following treatment, but we recommend not vigorously treating or washing the scalp immediately after the procedure.

  • How fast will I see results from PRP treatments?

    PRP is not guaranteed, but you will see results within four months if it works for you. Research has been positive in men and women, although the studies have been small. Hair restoration resulting from PRP injections will depend a lot on your gender, age, genes, hormones, and other factors, including your initial amount of hair. Maintaining a healthier lifestyle will increase your chance of success for hair restoration and many other treatments.

  • How many injections will I need?

    Additional injections are recommended to see continued results. The number of treatments will depend on factors like your age and the amount and pattern of hair loss. Your treatment plan will typically start with one injection every 4-6 weeks for 3-6 months, followed by spacing treatments out once every 3-4 months for up to two years. Eating a balanced diet and not smoking or using nicotine products, which disrupt the blood supply your hair needs to grow, will aid in better results.
