Laser hair removal is an attractive option for people suffering from unwanted hair and is a great alternative to shaving, waxing, hair removal creams, and plucking. The best part is that laser hair removal is safe, fast, and causes much less irritation. The results achieved with laser hair removal far exceed those achieved with electrolysis and certainly exceed any results one can accomplish with waxing or shaving. Any discomfort patients experience with laser hair removal is minimal and momentary.

Laser hair removal has been FDA approved for use on all skin types. Because of the wavelength from the laser, it can be safely used on darker skin types. Men and women can use laser treatments to remove hair on the upper lip, neck, face, arms, underarms, bikini area, legs, and back.

  • If your skin is light and your hair is dark and coarse, you are the ideal candidate.
    If your skin is dark, then the laser settings will be adjusted to protect the skin’s surface.
    If your hair is naturally blonde, you are not a candidate for laser hair removal because the light pigment in your hair does not respond to treatment.

About the Procedure

In order to slow hair growth, laser hair removal treatments damage individual hair follicles. The laser system emits intense beams of light which safely pass through the epidermis to the hair follicle where selective photothermolysis takes place to disrupt the hair without harming the surrounding skin.

Although you may experience a little bit of discomfort while you are getting a laser hair removal treatment, that can be minimized with a topical anesthetic. Most patients experience mild pinching of the skin as the laser moves over the hair. The number of treatments required varies from patient to patient, based on the cycle of hair growth patterns and ethnicity. Normally, six to 12 sessions (a few weeks apart) can be expected in order to achieve the desired result. each treatment could take only four minutes, or more than an hour, depending on the size of the area.

You may notice some redness and swelling after your procedure, but this should be minimal and will usually go away within a few hours. You can reduce the discomfort by applying aloe vera to the treated area. Because laser hair removal is not a cosmetic surgery procedure, you do not need to do anything special to prepare for this procedure, but you will need to avoid the sun for a few weeks before your procedure.

Excessive sun exposure can tan your skin; and if you get a tan, then you will have a greater risk of developing unpleasant side effects. Additionally, you will need to avoid waxing, plucking or using electrolysis before you get laser hair removal. As not all hair follicles are in a growth cycle at the same time, follow-up treatments to reach all hair follicles are typically required.

Each patient is unique; therefore, results of treatment may vary.

TESTIMONIALS

“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Garvey for a little more than six months. She has provided me relief from a serious varicose vein issue. I couldn’t be happier or more impressed with her knowledge, skill, and bedside manner. She has my highest recommendation. Her nurse, Eulene, and office manager, Chris, are also wonderful. Thanks to Dr. Garvey and team!”
Al G.

“Dr. Papadopoulos did a wonderful job on my recent surgical procedure on my arm. He made me feel at ease and explained everything to me in terms that I could understand. He was precise and succinct during the surgery, and my recovery could not have gone any smoother. I highly recommend Dr. Papadopoulos for any and all skin cancer surgery.”

Martha R.
“Dr. Berghoff has been my doctor for years and has identified and repaired significant skin issues on several occasions that could have resulted in serious health issues. I always leave his office feeling like I know what my skin health is!”
John P.
“Dr. Neckman came highly recommended by my wife, and I was a little nervous on my first visit. She made me feel very comfortable and almost like a sister was looking out for her brother. She explained everything very well and took care of me with speed and compassion. Couldn’t recommend a dermatologist more.”
Tony M.
“I have been going to Dr. Alford for several years. She is great! She is so pleasant and listens to any concerns you may have. She is thorough and professional. I always look forward to seeing her. If you’re looking for a great dermatologist, I highly recommend Dr. Alford.”
Robyn C.

“I’ve been Dr. Kim’s patient for over 10 years and she is amazing! I recommend her to everyone and am grateful for the care and compassion she has shown me. Unfortunately, because of my skin, I see her a lot, but she makes visits and procedures as stress free as possible.”

Tara F.

“Dr. McClure has no peer in his field. Apart from his incredible skill as a surgeon, he is also wise and compassionate, too. He knows when it’s the right thing to do nothing. I would not be alive today were it not for his treatment of my melanoma years ago. My wife and I trust him more than any other doctor whom we have ever known.”
