Laser hair removal in Frederick is a popular alternative to shaving, waxing, plucking, threading, and chemical hair removal. At Alazzo, we love laser hair removal for a safer, quicker, and more efficient option for those who experience sensitive skin or irritation from shaving or waxing.
How it Works
Our specialists use near-infrared laser light in every procedure. A handpiece pulses the light on the surface of the skin penetrating a few millimeters. The specialized laser converts light energy to heat to target hair and reduce other pigmentation issues. The color of the hair follicle absorbs the laser’s light or energy and pulls it down to the root of the hair follicle cutting off the blood supply that allows the hair to grow. At any given time approximately 20% of your hair is actively growing and attached to the root vulnerable to the energy of the laser. This is the philosophy behind multiple treatments to remove unwanted hair. The right combination of wavelength, energy, and pulse duration must be used to destroy not just damage unwanted hair, a common miss-step in the industry. An experienced practitioner is mandatory to achieve desired results when it comes to laser hair removal and permanent reduction of unwanted hair.

Who Is It For?
Laser Hair Removal in Frederick is effective for both men and women! Our hormones are the number one determining factor that determines the growth of our hair and its patterns. Additional varying factors from genes to lifestyle can also impact how our hair grows. Our specialists keep all of this in mind as we discuss the results you have in mind.
ready to Feel Results?
Results are typically noted after your first treatment in about 7-10 days. After your procedure, the hair in the treated area will shed resulting in a “honeymoon” phase. During this phase, you may experience limited hair growth. The destroyed hairs will not return but other hairs entering into the growth phase start to show at about the time for you to return for your next treatment. You should expect to do treatments every 4 weeks for the face, every 6 weeks for the mid-body, and every 8 weeks for the legs.
