Laser Hair Removal Techniques
Laser hair removal is an incredibly effective procedure, however due to the nature of how the removal works, a tapered look would be very difficult to achieve. At my practice we use the GentleMax Pro, the newest and most effective technology in laser hair removal which works by damaging the hair follicle of the hairs in growth phase at the time of treatment. Not all hairs are in growth phase at the time of treatment meaning not all are affected at once, one of the reasons multiple treatments are needed, but also one of the reasons tapering would be very difficult. Additionally, it is impossible to predict your response to treatment - whether finer hair will grow in the place of treated hair or it will be removed completely. Despite these obstacles, we often perform this procedure on the same areas you have mentioned with great results and patients who are very pleased with the final outcome.
With laser hair you cannot taper the hair removal. You can lessen the hair in a given area by not completing the treatments but it may not be exactly how you like it. Best, Dr. Green
