Are you tired of always waxing and shaving? As the summer months get closer, you may be thinking about all the times you’ll have to shave or wax when going out. Instead of dreading a trip to an esthetician or spending time shaving, turn to laser hair removal. Cincinnati Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer laser hair removal services as one of our many different non-surgical options available to our patients. Learn about laser hair removal and all of its benefits here.
What is Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal uses a laser to decrease the amount of body hair. In a general sense, you can use it anywhere on your body. However, many people choose more common areas, like the legs, underarms, shoulders, and bikini area. Both men and women have benefited from our laser hair removal services. During your laser hair removal treatments, a laser will be pointed at treatment areas. The light from the laser works to destroy hair follicles, which prevents hair from growing.
Is It Safe
Laser hair removal is incredibly safe. The laser uses heat to deactivate the hair follicle but you won’t experience much discomfort from it. You may experience skin irritation following your treatments, but that discomfort typically goes away within a few hours. Additionally, you may also experience redness and swelling that also go away within a few hours. If it doesn’t go away, you’ll want to talk with your doctor.
Is It Effective
Laser hair removal is extremely effective. Most people report an 80 percent reduction in body hair once they’ve completed their treatment course. It’s also effective on many different skin types, giving everyone the chance at smooth feeling skin. In order for the laser hair removal to be the most effective, you’ll want to follow any guidelines the staff gives you.
How Long Does It Take
Laser hair removal takes time to see the most amount of hair reduction. Typically, we tell our patients they’ll need five to eight treatments. We spread the treatments out over several months. This helps to increase the overall efficacy. You won’t experience down time with laser hair removal. Once you finish a treatment, you can continue on with your day.
Can It Be Combined With Other Services?
At Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, our laser hair removal services can be packaged with some of our other non-surgical procedures. If you’re interested in our other non-surgical procedures, like a HydraFacial or laser resurfacing, we can discuss a package deal.
