Laser Hair Removal

A Long-Term Solution For Unwanted Hair in Albany, NY

Each week, shaving and waxing take up precious time in your busy schedule. Some figures report that we can lose between three to eight hours each month just shaving in the shower. The common alternative, waxing, is less time-consuming but can be painful and leave behind bumpy and irritated skin. Laser hair removal is the premier choice for time-efficient and comfortable hair removal. 

To remove unwanted hair, laser light is absorbed by heat throughout the hair shaft and bulb, stunting hair growth and promoting smoother skin. Laser hair removal is a comfortable and stress-free experience thanks to our laser’s built-in contact cooling.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal works by using light energy to target hair shafts and bulbs within a targeted area. The heat is absorbed by melanin, the pigment responsible for hair color. The procedure can damage and then destroy the hair bulb, leaving silky, smooth skin behind. 

At Skin By ASK, our lasers are customizable to your skin tone and hair type for optimal results. For maximum results, you may need several appointments. It is expected to take more than one appointment to treat the majority of hair in a specific area, but hairs that do grow back are generally fine, lighter, and harder to see.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

When the hair bulb is destroyed, it will not grow back. Often, a few sessions are needed to damage all of the hair bulbs in a specific area. If some of the hair bulbs are damaged, but not destroyed, they will grow back lighter, finer, and with less impact on the skin. Over time, more and more hairs will be destroyed leading to progressively smoother skin without the need to wax or shave as often if at all.

You can notice results in a few weeks, typically 1-3 weeks after the procedure. After your first treatment, another appointment in 4 to 6 weeks is recommended for more comprehensive hair removal. The larger the area, the more sessions may be required. Laser hair removal becomes more effective after each appointment, so don’t fret if you don’t have your desired results after just one session.

Many patients describe laser hair removal as a comfortable process. Most patients describe a sensation not so unlike a rubber band snapping against the skin. Our laser features built-in contact cooling to minimize side effects and maximize comfort, making our  laser hair removal treatments as safe and effective as possible.
