Laser Hair Removal Pittsburgh - Bethel Park Affordable Permanent Hair Reduction
Laser hair removal on your wish list? We're sure you have many questions that you'd like to ask about it. We're here to help!
Laser hair removal works wonderfully on unwanted hair growth including those caused caused by hormonal fluctuations, genetics, or other medical related conditions. It can now be performed on all complexions, including darker skin tones as the diode laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle, not the pigment in the skin. Gone are the days when only light complexions with very dark hair could be treated.

How does laser hair removal work?
Diode laser hair reduction treatments remove unwanted hair by targeting the hair follicle and then directing the laser beam at its root. Laser energy is dispersed and travels along the melanin (pigment in the hair) to destroy the hair follicle, while not causing harm to the surrounding skin.
Does it hurt?
At Allegheny Physical Medicine in Pittsburgh, we use the latest and advanced diode laser hair removal technology. This allows for comfortable hair removal on even the most sensitive of areas, by way of a unique cooling tip that cools the skin before and during the hair removal process. No numbing cream is needed for use with our treatments. The days of the old "painful" laser are gone!
How many treatments are needed?
The diode laser produces permanent hair reduction. You will notice a 15-20% reduction in grown with each treatment. Hair has three growth stages, Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. Your treatments are spaced between 4-8 weeks apart (depending on the area treated) to ensure that the hair follicle in each of these growth stages are destroyed. Usually 4-6 treatments are recommended. However, some patients feel that they've achieved enough of a hair reduction after 3 treatments. You will notice that the remaining hair growth is softer, lighter, and finer with each hair removal treatment.
Will I be red afterwards?
Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, the area treated may turn a pinkish color for a few hours afterwards. Please avoid sunlight afterwards and use a 30+ SPF sunscreen on any exposed areas.
