Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the world, and for good reason. It simplifies the process of removing your unwanted body hair and significantly reduces the time and money you spend maintaining your smooth skin. 

At APMI Wellness Center, Dr. Eshkevari uses a high-powered laser to target body hair in one or more regions of skin. Laser hair removal can treat large areas of body hair with great consistency and can even treat hair in places that are hard to reach. 

The laser energy targets and heats your hair follicles, which are the tube-shaped structures supporting and growing each hair within your skin. The heat causes them to stop growing hair for an extended period of time. 

Which lasers are used for laser hair removal?

Based on your skin type and other factors, Dr. Eshkevari may use either one of these top-of-the-line laser hair-removal systems to remove your unwanted body hair with minimal discomfort:


The Cutera laser hair-removal system utilizes two types of lasers. Together, the wavelengths of the lasers can target your follicles and inhibit their future growth while offering contact cooling to keep you comfortable.

Alma™ Beauty

Alma Beauty’s laser hair-removal system uses patented Superior Hair Removal (SHR)™ technology to heat your follicles with multiple pulses of low-energy laser light. These low-energy pulses heat your follicles enough to inhibit future growth. 

Can I target any area of my body with laser hair removal?

With laser hair-removal treatments by Dr. Eshkevari at APMI Wellness Center, you can remove body hair from the areas you normally shave, wax, or pluck regularly. 

Regions that people commonly target include:

  • Shoulders
  • Back
  • Chin
  • Upper lip
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Chest


During your consultation with Dr. Eshkevari, you should specify which areas you want to target. Based on the sizes of the areas, the density of your hair, and your hair color, she estimates the number of treatment sessions you’ll need to achieve hairlessness in the areas.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

While laser hair removal offers results that last far longer than shaving, waxing, or plucking, it rarely results in complete, permanent removal. It’s likely you’ll see some regrowth even if it’s significantly finer or less dense than before. 

You can book maintenance laser hair-removal treatments at APMI Wellness Center whenever you need them.
