HOW LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS
Laser hair removal prevents the growth of hair follicles by flooding melanin with thermal energy. Melanin, the pigment that gives your hair its color, naturally absorbs light. During the laser hair removal procedure, the laser carefully treats each targeted hair with a blast of high-energy light. The laser is calibrated to target the melanin found in the hair’s root, allowing the beam to safely pass through the skin to focus on the hair’s root.¹ When the hair follicle absorbs the high-energy light, the thermal energy of the laser overwhelms the follicle, disabling its capacity to re-grow.
Effective hair reduction requires several laser sessions, due to the different growth stages each hair follicle cycles through. The anagen, or active, phase of growth is the stage when hair contains the highest concentrations of melanin. Because high concentrations of melanin ensure that the procedure is effective, laser hair removal is especially well suited for targeting hair in the anagen phase of growth. However, only 20-30% of your hair is going through the anagen phase at any moment, so your technician from New Beauty and Wellness will create a treatment schedule to ensure that you get great-looking results that last.¹ The specific treatment area also has a large impact on the number of sessions before ideal results are achieved.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT AREAS
Laser hair removal works effectively on nearly any part of the body. Our clients typically get laser hair removal treatments targeting the following:
Facial hair (eyebrows, sideburns, hair above the lip, etc.)
Chest & back
During each complementary consultation from New Beauty and Wellness, our laser technicians discuss what areas you would like to have treated and use that information to build an affordable and comprehensive treatment plan to meet all of your aesthetic goals.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT
Prior to your procedure you should make sure the area being treated is freshly shaven. This will allow for effective energy delivery of the laser device to your hair follicles, thus providing a more effective treatment. You should refrain from plucking or waxing the treatment area prior to your laser hair removal treatment to avoid disrupting the hair follicle.
You should also avoid applying any lotions, moisturizers, oils, deodorants, or sunscreens to your skin on the day of your appointment. These substances can create a barrier between your hair follicles and the laser and can reduce the effectiveness of your treatment.
For the best results you cannot have a tan in the treated area and you cannot have been previously waxed. Additionally, in the days prior to treatment, you should avoid taking medications like blood thinners, NSAIDs, and pain relievers, as well as topical medications like Retinol. These medications can increase your sensitivity to the heat and light of the laser and cause your treatment process to be extremely painful and irritating.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL FOR KERATOIS PILARSIS
Laser hair removal can be an effective treatment to improve the appearance of keratosis pilaris, a common skin condition that causes small, hard bumps on the skin. The laser targets and destroys the hair follicles, which are often the source of inflammation and irritation in people with keratosis pilaris. By removing the hair, the laser helps reduce inflammation and promote smoother, healthier-looking skin.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL FAQs
The hair follicles that absorb energy from the laser will be damaged. Hairs that were present in the follicles at the time of treatment will fall out over the next couple of weeks and future hair growth will be impaired. Since not all hairs are actively growing at the same time multiple treatments are required for optimal results.
As the follicles in the transitional and resting periods return to the active growth phase, you may notice some hair regrowth but not as thick as it was before the treatment. This regrowth will become thinner and lighter with each subsequent treatment until there is little, to no hair at all. The number of treatments required for permanent hair loss depends on the client and the treatment area.
We consider laser hair removal to be a fantastic long-term investment, since it saves our clients countless hours and hundreds of dollars by making shaving, waxing, or tweezing obsolete and unnecessary. Prices vary by client, depending on the treatment area and the amount of treatments required. Our laser specialists in Westport and New Canaan, CT will discuss these prices in detail with you during your complimentary consultation. If we find that you’re an ideal candidate for the procedure, we will develop a treatment plan that works with your budget and meets your aesthetic goals.
Laser hair removal has been cleared by the FDA for the purpose of permanent hair reduction. Researchers, who published their laser hair removal review in the Journal of Dermatological Surgery, found that once the hair follicles become damaged by the high-intensity light bursts of a laser treatment, the follicle is then permanently disabled from re-growing hair, thus achieving permanent hair reduction. At New Beauty and Wellness, we advise our patients to undergo a full treatment plan to ensure that their results are long-term and satisfying.*
No, lasers are designed to target pigmentation within your hair follicles and tattoos can interfere with the process. Therefore, the laser will detect and target the pigment in the tattoo ink instead of the hair follicle and can result in a burn or scarring to both the skin and tattoo. Laser hair removal in the vicinity of a tattoo is still possible and safe, and your tattoo will be covered by your technician during treatment.
