About Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses light to remove unwanted hair. Laser hair removal devices can be used on any part of the body, including the face, legs, arms, bikini area, and underarms.  

During the session, you can comfortably relax in the treatment room, where we start by cleaning the treatment area to remove any dirt, oil, or moisturizers. The lasers emit energy that travels precisely down the hair shaft to the root, destroying the follicle. It does not affect the surrounding areas. You will need a minimum of 6-9 laser hair removal sessions every 4-6weeks to see your ideal results. Appointments are spaced out so that the treated areas have time to recover. It also allows for dormant follicles to reach active stages where they can be removed.  

The treatment is designed to be gentle, but the skin may feel like it has a light sunburn for some. You will be able to resume daily activities immediately without any restrictions. 

The amount of time your skin needs to heal post-treatment will depend on the area and size of the treatment region. During this period, you’ll want to make sure you don’t shave, wax, or do any skin tanning. 

Dr. Cobbinah is committed to utilizing the latest technological innovations in skincare and beauty. At Essential Med Aesthetics, we use the Cutera xeo™ and excel® HR devices that significantly reduce treatment time compared to traditional lasers. They also enable long-term hair removal, which results in as little as six to nine treatments. We can offer treatment for any skin type and hair color, except blonde, red, gray, or white.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Patients with darker hair and lighter skin tend to have the best results with laser treatments because these two things make it easier for the device to work properly. We are proud to offer Cutera xeo and Excel HR device that is capable of far more effective hair removal in all skin types.

This procedure has many benefits, including permanent hair reduction on any body part it’s performed on; however, results vary from patient to patient depending on their skin type and color, hair color, age at the time of treatment, hormonal status, and other factors.

Laser hair removal eliminates unwanted ingrown hair leaving the skin soft and smooth. It also gives you clearer, brighter skin by getting rid of the hyperpigmentation caused by irritation of the ingrown hair.

Get smooth, luxurious skin without going through the trouble of waxing and shaving while saving time and money. 


It is difficult to determine exactly how many sessions will be needed without an initial consultation. Generally, most people need between six to nine sessions for optimal results. Many factors determine the number of sessions needed for optimal results, such as underlying health and hormonal issues, hair density, skin sensitivity, etc. It is important that you’re seen once a year for maintenance treatment after completing laser hair removal.

Patients must not tan or get a spray tan before treatment. Otherwise, the results will be negatively affected because it can cause discoloration of the skin. It’s also recommended that patients do not wax, pluck or bleach their hair prior to getting treatments.  It is best to have your skin freshly shaved to make it easier for the laser to penetrate and target active hairs.  Do not apply any creams or lotions on the areas to be treated on the day of your appointment.
