Shaving, tweezing, waxing, threading – when it comes to removing unwanted hair, there are few options providing the ease and relative permanence many patients crave. Thankfully, laser hair removal is more effective at removing unwanted hair from targeted areas of the body than any other self-administered or salon method.
For patients in the Philadelphia area, the StarkMD Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Center is an eminent and renowned choice for your laser hair removal needs. We have already helped to free many patients from the irritation and inconvenience of unwanted hair, and we would be grateful to do the same for you.
How does laser hair removal work?
During laser hair removal, highly concentrated beams of light are pulsed on the targeted area. The laser targets the hair at the root to restrict hair growth at the follicle. This causes the hair to fall out and prevents it from growing back again.
The StarkMD Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center employs Sciton Forever Bare BBL method of laser hair removal. This technique employs a handheld device, allowing Dr. Stark to attain decidedly precise results. In this way, Dr. Stark ensure laser hair removal can be ideal for larger areas as well as highly sensitive areas such as the bikini line and upper lip.
What areas can be treated with laser hair removal?
Virtually any area of the body that has unwanted hair can be treated with laser hair removal. You may choose to utilize laser hair removal to remove hair from the:
- Bikini area
What should I expect from laser hair removal treatments?
Each laser hair removal session lasts 15-60 minutes. Most patients require four to six treatments in order to attain lasting results, but many have success with as few as two treatments.
Hair in the treated area is expected to fall out over the course of a month after your laser hair removal treatments. The goal is for the laser to affect the targeted hair follicle with minimal discomfort and side effects.
The outer layers of your skin will be protected from the laser with a clear, cooling ultrasound gel. However, you may still feel soreness, much like a sunburn, for about a day after each laser hair removal treatment. Dr. Stark will ensure you fully understand all aftercare requirements for best results.
Is laser hair removal right for me?
The equipment used during laser hair removal can be adjusted based on the thickness, color, and other aspects of the hair and skin. Even if you have particularly stubborn or thick hair, laser hair removal may be an effective option for you.
Laser hair removal works best on darker hair colors, but may still be an option for those with lighter hair. At your comprehensive consultation, Dr. Stark will help you arrive at the best possible treatment plan for you.
