Honolulu Dermatologist Dr. Kory Kitagawa Talks Laser Hair Removal Just in Time for Summer

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), over one million laser hair removal procedures are performed each year, putting it among the top 5 most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures in the country. With summer close, it’s safe to assume that a fair number those million-plus procedures will be performed over the next 8-10 weeks. For anyone considering a hair removal procedure, there are a few things to keep in mind.

“Every year, it happens,” Dr. Kory Kitagawa said. “Patients begin jamming the phone lines in late April or early May trying to schedule appointments to get unwanted hair removed. Sun exposure must be avoided as much as possible both a month before and after a procedure, therefore, patients should really begin preparing and scheduling appointments no later than the beginning of April.”

Getting sun exposure in the month before and, especially, in the month after a laser hair removal session not only disrupts results but can also negatively impact healing. When preparation and after-care are done carefully, however, laser hair removal is safe, permanent, and effective. In fact, although normally thought of as a treatment for women, it is fast becoming a popular treatment for men.

“When you consider how precise the laser is at removing hair – the surrounding skin and tissue are untouched – it’ not too much of a surprise that more and more men are coming around,” Dr. Kitagawa said, “Common areas for men include their chest, legs, back, neck, ears, and shoulders. Laser treatment is ideal for those areas, though it’s no secret that it’s also popular for women in the bikini area, on their legs, and under their arms.”

Laser hair removal is also versatile and safe enough for treating a variety of places such as above the lip or on the arms, eyebrows, and stomach. The procedure is also usually schedule-friendly, as most procedures last under an hour and downtime is virtually nothing. To learn more about laser hair removal, visit

“Even for people with thick patches of hair, it’s possible to get smooth, supple, hair-free skin,” Dr. Kitagawa said. “And when patients follow the after-care routine, including avoiding the sun for at least the first four weeks, the results are permanent. Once your skin is healed, you and your clear, smooth skin are ready for a summer of fun!”
