How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal harnesses the power of laser energy to permanently destroy your body’s ability to create hair in treated areas.

With this leading-edge technology, they can offer laser hair removal to their patients of all skin types.
The team at Embrace Skin and Wellness has extensive experience removing hair from:
- Bikini areas
During treatment, your Embrace Skin and Wellness provider moves the laser over the area where you want to get rid of hair. This allows the laser to direct energy into your hair follicle.
The follicle absorbs this energy, heating up to the point that it’s destroyed. Hair follicles that the laser treat don’t repair themselves, meaning you get permanent results from laser hair removal at Embrace Skin and Wellness.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?
Your hair goes through three stages as it grows: anagen (growth), catagen (transitional), and telogen (resting). Laser hair removal is most effective when it treats a hair follicle in the growth stage. Around a third of your hair follicles are in the anagen phase at any given time.
By repeating treatments at strategic intervals, your Embrace Skin and Wellness provider is able to apply the laser to as many hair follicles as possible during their growth phase, giving you your desired results.
Generally, they recommend between 4–6 laser treatments to leave you as smooth as possible in the treated area.
