Laser Hair Removal For Teens

Laser hair removal has become a popular procedure amongst teens who desire to eliminate unwanted hair and halt its growth. During the transition from childhood to adolescence, there are significant hormonal changes that can cause hair to grow in new and different parts of the body. 

At Robertson Pediatrics, we recognize that addressing hair-related issues in young teens requires a comprehensive and supportive approach. We are committed to helping them achieve their most confident self through age-appropriate and safe hair removal treatments, such as Aerolase Neo Elite®

Aerolase Neo Elite® targets and prevents future occurrences of hair growth, offering effective solutions for tender, young skin. This groundbreaking solution uses an innovative Nd: YAG 1064nm laser with a 650-microsecond pulse duration, unique in its kind.

Benefits of Aerolase Neo Elite®

Providing faster results on all skin types and avoiding adverse dermatological effects, Aerolase Neo Elite® is the best option for teenage skin. Some of its benefits include:

  1. Effectiveness for All-Skin Types: This kind of laser is safe to use on darker skin tones and is effective even on lighter-colored hairs. 
  2. Faster Results: Hair starts to become permanently reduced after 4-6 treatments.
  3. No Pain & Minimal Side Effects: Compared to other types of hair removal lasers, Aerolase Neo Elite® offers effective results with minimal side effects and no permanent adverse reactions.

Minimal Side Effects

Some of these mild side effects may include mild skin irritation, redness and tenderness in the area, and minor pigmentation changes. It is common after the procedure for your skin to feel similar to a minor sunburn, but this discomfort usually disappears on its own after a short while.

What to Expect During Your Child’s Laser Hair Removal Appointment

During your child’s laser hair removal appointment, we will start off by answering any questions you or your child may have about the procedure. After performing an assessment of your child’s health and skin issues, here is what will happen next:

Skin Preparation

A couple of days before your appointment, your child will have to shave the desired areas where the laser will be applied. Laser hair removal therapy can be used on any part of the body where no tattoos, irritation, or open wounds are located. The common areas teenagers choose for laser therapy removal are the legs, back, face, underarms, arms, bikini line, and chest.

During the Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Once in our clinic, we will ask your child to put on a clinical robe and lay comfortably in our examination beds. 

Before we get started, we will test a small area of your child’s skin with the laser to ensure no adverse reactions appear and to see if any adjustments are needed. Aerolase Neo Elite® does not need any gel application beforehand, making the procedure gentler on the skin. 

As our technician starts the procedure, the laser will target the hair follicles, causing them to start falling out after a few appointments.

Skin Aftercare

Once one of our healthcare providers has applied the laser therapy to the desired areas, we recommend your child follows these aftercare tips:

  • Wear sunscreen daily and reapply it every couple of hours to protect the tender skin from the sun. 
  • Use the over-the-counter creams and ointments we suggested during your appointment as directed. 
  • If discomfort increases, use an ice pack wrapped in a washcloth to reduce irritation. 
  • Avoid using perfumes, deodorants, and body lotions until the skin completely heals. 
  • Avoid using a tanning bed for at least two weeks after the treatment. 
  • Do not shave or wax the area if it still appears swollen or red. 

It is important to note that depending on the area treated, your child will need multiple treatment sessions before the hair is completely removed from the targeted area of their body.
