John Matocha, M.D., M.P.H. supervises all laser treatments for the reduction and elimination of shaving bumps.
Treatments that really work
Laser light is absorbed by pigment in actively growing hair, damaging the hair follicle and thus, hair re-growth is impeded, reducing and eliminating the bumps caused by ingrown hairs. The average patient sees at least a 75% short-term reduction of shaving bumps within 2 weeks after just one or two treatments. One or two annual touch up treatments may be required after completing the initial treatment series.
Average treatment series
Only a portion of your hair is in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Therefore, a series of treatments will be required to achieve the long-term improvement you desire. These treatments are spaced approximately 4-12 weeks apart, based on hair growth cycles. Long-term improvement is seen after completing a series of four to six treatments.
Typical treatment sessions
Sessions to treat the neck or bikini area can take as little as 15 minutes, while a full beard and neck may take 45 minutes.
