Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted hair can make you feel self-conscious, but shaving and waxing only give you temporary results.
Laser hair removal is a more permanent alternative that can remove your unwanted hair for months or even years.
Devlin Cosmetic Surgery: Michael Devlin, M.D. in Little Rock, AR, can target hair on the face or body with an advanced laser treatment.
The Science Behind Laser Hair Removal
During laser hair removal, light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair without damaging the surrounding skin. The light is then converted into heat, which damages the hair follicles, causing them to release the hair they were growing and preventing them from growing more.
While one treatment can reduce hair growth, multiple treatments are required to completely remove unwanted hair because hair grows in cycles. While you're able to treat some hair follicles during an initial appointment, other follicles will enter their growth phase later, resulting in the need for additional treatment.
We may recommend anywhere from two to six treatments to completely address an area. The number of treatments you need and the amount of time between them will depend on the coarseness of your hair, your skin type, and the area of the body you're treating.
Who Can Benefit From Laser Treatment?
While the best candidates for laser hair removal are people with dark hair and pale skin, people with all skin types and tones can be candidates. Laser technology has come a long way in recent years, and while people with darker skin may have experienced complications in the past, they can now safely experience the benefits of hair removal with lasers.
Dr. Michael Devlin in Little Rock, AR, can laser areas such as your:
- Upper lip
- Bikini line

The Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Laser hair removal provides results that can last for months or years. If your hair does grow back, it's often finer and lighter in color.
Results of the Treatment
After just one session, you should notice a 10-25% decrease in hair growth. After each hair removal treatment, your results will become more prominent. Upon finishing their treatment sessions, most patients do not experience hair growth for months to years. If hair does grow back, it tends to be thinner, finer, and lighter in color.
After your first round of treatments, annual touch-ups are recommended to maintain your results.
The Price of Hair Removal
Once you take into account the amount of money you would otherwise spend on razors, shaving cream, wax, and trips to the salon, the price of laser hair removal is a sound investment. Laser hair removal by our Little Rock team is a long-term solution that can save you money over the years.
