Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a top aesthetic laser procedure at both of All Island Dermatology’s locations. Your provider uses a handheld laser to administer quick, intense pulses of light energy directly into your hair follicles in areas where you don’t want hair to grow. 

The laser light safely passes through your skin without causing any damage to it, yet it kills the hair follicle so that hair can’t grow from it anymore. 

If you’re having hair removal treatments at the clinic located in Garden City, New York, your provider uses Lightsheer Desire. If you’re booking in Glen Cove, New York, you’ll get the Lightsheer Duet. Both Lightsheer lasers are well regarded for their comfort and speed during the hair removal process.

Where can I have hair removed?

Your provider can remove hair from anywhere on your body where you don’t want it to grow. Common areas for hair removal are:


  • Bikini
  • Upper Lip
  • Chin
  • Eyebrow area
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Sideburns
  • Arms


Laser hair removal works well for all skin types and all hair colors.

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

You’ll need about 4-6 laser hair removal treatments to achieve the best results. The team at All Island Dermatology schedules your sessions about four weeks apart. 

When will I see results?

You’ll see results immediately following your first treatment. Because hair grows in cycles, the laser penetrates active hair cells and takes several treatments to reach the hair in all its growth phases. Each round of new growth is finer, lighter, and less noticeable than before. Eventually, the hair falls out and won’t grow back.

What can I expect during a laser hair removal treatment?

You’ll be pleased to know that each treatment is quick and doesn’t cause pain. Since the procedure is noninvasive and uses light energy, the only discomfort you may feel is heat and redness as your provider glides the wand over your treatment area. 

Both of All Island Dermatology’s locations offer flexible hours for laser hair removal. Call to learn more about how you can have smooth, hairless skin or use the online scheduler to book now.
