Remove Unwanted Body Hair
Laser hair removal is one of our most popular procedures because it allows our patients to wake up confident, carefree, and maintenance-free.
Our experienced laser hair removal technicians are highly trained to deliver the safest, most effective results and experience possible.
We have also helped many patients who suffer from Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a common hormone disorder that can cause excess facial and body hair. For PCOS patients, we recommend a full endocrine workup prior to laser hair removal treatment.
Common treatment areas include the upper lip, chin, underarms, bikini area, back, arms, and legs.
After our laser hair removal services, you can enjoy clean, smooth skin you’ll want to show off.
Laser Hair Removal FAQs
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment that permanently removes unwanted hair anywhere on the body for smoother skin.
The treatments work by targeting hair follicles. The laser detects melanin, or dark pigmentation, in the follicles, then applies pulses of light to the roots to destroy them.
The best part about laser hair removal is that it’s a simple, non-invasive treatment that destroys hair follicles in minutes. It also doesn’t cause stubble, bumps, shadow, or irritation that shaving can leave behind.
Anyone who wants to permanently reduce or remove unwanted body hair should consider laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal specifically targets melanin pigment to produce long-term hair reduction. While it is designed for all skin types, coarse, dark hair responds best. Those with lighter, blonde, or white hair may not find laser treatments as effective, since the lasers will not be able to detect the hair follicles.
However, this treatment is safe for all skin types, skin tones, and hair colors. No matter what combination of skin tone and hair color you have, we can work with you to come up with a personalized solution.
Common skin conditions like folliculitis and ingrown hairs often respond well to this treatment.

During your consultation, we will further discuss cost and expected results based on your hair/skin type, number of areas treated, and your overall reduction goals.
Laser hair removal is extremely common and widely offered. Although there may be cheaper places to purchase laser hair removal, like with many things – you truly get what you pay for. Therefore, choosing the lowest-cost provider can have irreversible and painful consequences.
Don’t throw your money away by choosing a “discount” laser hair removal procedure that doesn’t work. Trust the skincare experts at Dermatology & Laser of Alabama to help you achieve your laser hair removal goals.
The total number of treatments necessary is directly tied to your specific goals (e.g., moderate thinning to near-complete reduction).
Successful laser hair removal is scheduled around your hair growth cycles, and usually requires 6-8 sessions total.
Normally, a series of treatments is administered at four to eight-week intervals, depending upon the location of the hair. After each treatment, you will see thinning and reduction of unwanted hair. Patients with lighter and/or finer hairs may require a few additional treatments.
Following the initial series of treatments, subsequent treatments are administered at longer and longer intervals. Maintenance treatments may be needed over time for permanent results.

Important things to know before treatment:
- We ask that patients shave prior to their scheduled visit.
- Avoid using sunless tanning products around the treatment area. If you spray tan, be sure that your tan has completely faded.
