Laser Hair Removal
With laser hair removal, you may never have to shave, wax, or tweeze again. At the practice of Dr. Fredric Newman, we can reduce undesired hair in virtually any body area with potentially permanent results. Our advanced laser technology can be performed on a number of skin types and colors for a smoother appearance to the skin.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal works to destroy undesired hair at the root, significantly reducing the chance that they will ever grow back again. The procedure can be performed on both men and women looking to reduce unwanted hair in specific body areas. A special hand-held device will be guided over the targeted areas, emitting beams of laser energy into the skin. The heated energy works to destroy the follicles and diminish the possibility of re-growth. The laser hair removal procedure usually produces somewhat of a tingling sensation during treatment, similar to a rubber band being snapped on the skin.
Depending on the size and number of treatment areas, laser hair removal can take about 15 minutes to an hour to complete. Several treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve the best results.
Recovery from Laser Hair Removal
Most patients do not require recovery time after laser hair removal procedures, and are able to resume normal daily routines immediately after treatment. You may experience a feeling akin to a mild sunburn in the treated areas; however, this should only be temporary. Skin creams and topical gels can be useful to alleviate any discomfort after the treatment.
Laser Hair Removal Results
Many patients have achieved up to a 90% permanent reduction of undesired hair in the treatment areas after laser hair removal, giving the skin a smoother, hair-free appearance.
