Top 5 Things to Ask Your Doctor before You Have Laser Hair Removal

<< back to main laser hair removal page

Considering laser hair removal? Start off with a consultation from a reputable physician. Then, bring along this quick-hit list of questions – as well as your own from personal research. A professional doctor will appreciate you being prepared and well-educated.

Here are some common topics you’ll want to cover:

1. How much experience do you have performing laser hair removal?

This is a key question and you should pay attention to the answer. Do your research. Check the Better Business Bureau. Have there been any complaints against the physician? Ask for referrals from previous clients. Oftentimes speaking with someone who’s undergone the same laser hair removal procedure can give you much-needed reassurance.

2. Have you treated patients with my skin type and/or problem before?

A crucial question, especially if you have a unique skin condition that requires a specialist to perform your laser hair removal procedure. Do you have excessive hair growth? Acne? Scarring? Fair skin? Discuss all concerns with your doctor before the procedure.

3. What are the possible side effects and/or risks of this treatment?

As a patient, you’ll want to know before the laser hair removal procedure what risks and side effects you may encounter. While making sure you’re using a certified and reputable clinic may ease your mind, there are risks to every procedure. Have an honest, open discussion.

4. After examining my skin type and hair, how many laser hair removal treatments do you think I will need to achieve a lasting solution?

It’s different for everyone, and typically one treatment won’t stop your hair from growing. Skin type, hair type and pigmentation all factor into how many laser hair removal treatments you will need.

5. How long until I can resume normal activities following my laser hair removal procedure?

Depending on which body parts you’re having hair removed from, your instructions will vary. Your doctor may tell you to take it easy for the first few days, using strong sunscreen and moisturizer. Do not pluck any hairs you see growing.

An experienced and reputable physician will review all of these questions during your consultation. For more information regarding laser hair removal, visit Cosmetique’s laser hair removal page.

I’ve seen Dr Sarshad (and Rose) for over a decade now. Honestly I don’t trust anyone more. His skill and eye are unmatched!

We have been going to Dr Sarshad & his staff at Cosmetique since 2005. We have used them for Botox, laser hair removal, B-12 IV's and wellness injections, IPL facials and many other things. The staff is fabulous, courteous, kind, friendly and very helpful.

Got mold removed - no pain, much gain - it seriously didn’t hurt, took 30 seconds and you can’t tell it was ever there. Great job and many thanks. Highly recommend!

I have been going to Dr. Sarshad at Cosmetique Esthetics for awhile now and have experienced the utmost level of professionalism, care and 100% satisfaction in the myriad of services I have received. Rose is exceptionally caring and kind and Dr. Sarshad takes his time and is so comforting so I never have bruises from injections. Ada, the receptionist, always greets me with a smile and asks if I would like something to drink while waiting for a few minutes. I have now lost 11 lbs from the MJ shot and am exceedingly pleased with the excellent results. I have 4lbs to go and then maintenance. Never felt better in my life. Thank you all for helping me achieve the results I wanted to bc my best new self. I appreciate the extra mile you have gone in all my care, you are the absolute best in your field. Overjoyed I have found you!

Absolutely love this place! The staff is wonderful and friendly. I had several balding spots on my head so I went to Cosmetique for help. The doctor started me off with prp injections for the scalp and believe me, that stuff works!!! My bald spots are almost gone and my hair feels thicket than ever. I couldn’t have had the confidence I have now if it wasn’t for Dr Sharshad and his knowledgeable staff. Plus they will work with you to get you the best bang for your buck! Definitely a must go place for me. I highly recommend it.
