Laser Hair Removal FAQ
Is there any downtime after being treated with lasers hair removal?
Erythema (redness) and slight edema (swelling) are very normal after having a laser treatment and usually resolve after a day or two.
If I’ve been out in the sun, use a tanning bed, or use sunless tanning products; can I be treated with a laser?
Because many of the lasers made by Candela have absorption by melanin/pigment, we advise that patients avoid ANY sun exposure, tanning beds, and sunless tanning products for at least 2 weeks prior to treatment and 2 weeks after. The only treatment that can be performed on patients with a tan is laser hair reduction and should only be performed using the GentleYAG laser. Still, patients should avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for 1 week prior to treatment and 2 weeks after. The GentleYAG has no absorption of sunless tanning products.
What is the difference between fine and coarse hair?
The difference is the diameter. Finer hair has a lesser diameter than coarser hairs. This is important when determining the pulse duration of the treatment parameters. Remember we select our pulse duration dependent on the TRT or thermal relaxation time. The larger the structure, the longer the thermal relaxation time, thus the longer pulse duration required.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments required is dependent on several factors. First, what is the indication being treated? Hair requires more treatments than vascular lesions for example and what body area being treated for hair will also play a factor in number of treatments. Also, every patient responds differently therefore Jane Doe may need more treatments than Jill Doe.
Is it necessary to smell hair burning when using the YAG?
It is not necessary to smell a burnt hair odor. The clinical endpoint practitioners should look for is peri–follicular edema.
For stubborn hair, what can I do to be more effective?
As treatments progress, hairs that grow will usually be lighter, finer and maybe a little tougher to treat. Usually increasing the fluence to achieve greater absorption by these lighter hairs will be more effective. Always remember to judge a patients skin type to assist in determining an effective, but safe fluence.
Does shaving activate an anagen cycle?
Shaving does not activate an anagen cycle. The mechanical action of shaving is to remove the hair above the skins surface. It has no effect on the hair follicle or surrounding structures.
Will the laser be harmful to organs and lymph nodes?
No due to the limited depth of penetration neither the organs or lymph nodes should absorb the laser light
Photosensitivity and Topical Meds: how long should medications and topicals be avoided prior to and after laser treatments?
It depends on the medication and the topical being used by the patient. Patients should be off of Accutane for at least 6 months prior to laser treatments. Other medications should be examined and a test spot be performed if there is any concern of an adverse reaction. Retinoids should also be ceased 3–5 days prior to laser treatment as they can create excessive redness. A list of photosensitizing drugs can be found here: (0920–23–0011)
What drugs, other than Accutane, would interfere with laser treatments?
There are a number of medications that are considered photo sensitizing. This list can be located here: (0920–23–0011) If light interacts with any of these medications, a test spot should be performed to judge the skin’s reaction.
How long does it take for a hair to shed once it has been treated?
Hair can take up to two weeks to shed after treatment of the GentleLASE and nearly three weeks after treatment with the GentleYAG.
When treating legs for hair reduction, do they need to be cleanly shaven?
Yes, all areas being treated for hair reduction should be shaved the day prior to treatment. Any hair that is above the surface of the skin will absorb light that is intended for the hair follicle.
How long before and after should patients avoid sun exposure or tanning beds?
For treatments with the GentleYAG, patients should avoid sun exposure and tanning bed for 1 week before and 1 week after treatment. For all other Candela devices, patients should avoid the sun for at least two weeks prior and two weeks after.
What should be applied to the skin post treatment?
There are many different things that can be applied to the skin after a laser treatment. Most common are aloe vera, cold compresses, and most importantly a 30+ spf sun block.
How much hair will remain after completing a series of treatment? In other words, is there a guarantee?
Unfortunately there are no guarantees in laser hair reduction. There are clinical studies showing improvement of up to 80–90% but that every patient will respond with this amount of efficacy. Patients should be told during consultation that results will vary from patient to patient.
What are the potential side effects from using the laser?
While side effects are quire rare, the possibilities are erythema, edema, bruising, welting, hyper or hypo–pigmentation and blisters.
What happens to the skin after treatment?
Common endpoints are erythema or redness, and edema or swelling.
What exactly is happening during the treatment? Hair?
Hair: The laser light is attracted to the melanin in the hair follicle; particularly in the bulb and bulge. Heat is collected there damaging the cells lining the hair follicle with the potential to also damage the vascular matrix preventing future hair from growing.
Why is there a need for multiple treatments?
Due to the nature of the human body, it may take multiple treatments for improvement. For hair, there are several cycles of hair growth and a certain number of hairs may only be growing at a particular time. For vessels, they may need to be shrunk over a number of treatments. And wrinkle treatments are a result of the laser stimulating the body to produce or reorganize collagen.
What is the interval between laser treatments?
Typically most treatments are 4–6 weeks apart. However, depending on the indication being treated and where on the body the treatment is being performed. Treatments on the trunk should be done at 8–10 week intervals and extremities at 10–12 weeks.
Can patients who are taking antibiotics have laser treatments performed on them?
If there is a question regarding photosensitivity, or pigmentary changes while the patient is taking antibiotics, there are two course of action which the clinician can take:
Abstain from treatment until the patient has completed their antibiotics.
Refer to Medications / Photosensitivity List which is found in this website.
If a male patient is taking performance enhancers, will it have an impact on the efficacy of their treatments?
It is possible that performance enhances might impact hair reduction treatments. If the performance enhancers have components which increase testosterone production, the increase in hormonal activity might interfere with efficacy.
What is the post treatment protocol for leg veins? Can I exercise? Can I drink alcohol? Etc?
In order to optimize leg vein treatments certain activities should be avoided:
- Abstain from running, jogging, lifting weights for approximately 5 days.
- Abstain from baths, hot tubs, saunas, long showers, or any activity which will make you sweat.
- If your physician has recommended use of compression stockings, please follow their instructions for use.
- Because alcohol can cause vasodilation, abstaining from alcohol is recommended for approximately 5 days.
Can patients that are pregnant be treated with lasers?
ANSI Standards do not address this concern and Candela is not aware of any published studies on this subject. Since no known studies providing guidance on these risks are known, Candela recommends the following precautions: Defer the laser treatment during pregnancy; particularly laser treatments in the abdominal and pelvic areas. Other factors such as hormone changes, vascular proliferation, fluid retention and excessive hair growth may also affect procedure efficacy. Consultation with and approval by the physician or healthcare practitioner managing the pregnancy is advised.
