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.

  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Back
  • 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.
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.


In the six weeks prior to your treatment, you should avoid plucking, waxing, and electrolysis so the laser can effectively target your follicles. You should also limit your exposure to the sun as it can tan your skin and lighten your hair, making treatment less effective. Clean and shave the area to be treated within 24 hours of your appointment.

Eye Protection & Anesthetic

During your appointment with us in Little Rock, you will be provided with protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the lasers. A topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort, and your technician may shave or trim the area. Your technician will choose settings on the laser device that are optimal for your skin type and tone.


Your technician will press the handheld device into your skin. The device emits lasers that pass through your skin and damage only the follicles in the area. They will use this device all over the treatment area. Your laser hair removal procedure can take just a few minutes if you're treating a small area like your upper lip, or over an hour if you're treating a large area like your back or legs. 

Repeat Treatments

You can schedule your next treatment in 4-6 weeks. You will continue to receive treatments with us in Little Rock until your hair stops growing.

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.
