What is Laser Hair Removal?
Feeling confident in your body at all times is important, and sometimes that confidence gets disrupted by stubborn unwanted body hair. Feel ready for anything at the drop of a hat with laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that uses advanced laser technology to remove your unwanted body hair for the long-term, so you can ditch your razors and painful waxing sessions once and for all. Laser hair removal can provide up to a 90 percent reduction of hair in your treated areas, and only takes one touch up treatment every year or so to maintain your results.
How Much does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The price of your laser hair removal treatments will vary depending on the size of your treated area, and the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results. To get a better idea of how much your laser hair removal treatments will cost, come in for a private consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis and her staff.
What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
There are many benefits to getting laser hair removal treatments at Lewis Dermatology & Associates, including:
- Minimally invasive treatment
- No downtime and recovery period
- Provides a permanent reduction in hair growth
- Can treat the underarms, arms, legs, brows, face, chest and intimate areas
What Can I Expect During my Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
Before your laser hair removal treatment begins, Dr. Amy B. Lewis will cleanse your skin and apply a topical anesthetic to your treated area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of your treatment. Once numb, Dr. Lewis will strategically and carefully apply the laser to your treated areas. Most patients remain comfortable during their treatment, likening the sensation of the laser to a rubber band being snapped against the skin. Each laser hair removal treatment session typically takes only 30 minutes to complete, after which patients are able to return to their normal daily activities including work.
What Results Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
Because laser hair removal is minimally invasive, there is no downtime or recovery period associated with each treatment. Following each laser hair removal treatment, you may notice mild redness, tenderness, and swelling around your treated areas. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within a few hours of treatment. While you may see some results of your laser hair removal after just one treatment, Dr. Lewis and her expert team members typically recommend receiving a series of four to eight treatments to see ultimate results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
If you are looking for a minimally invasive treatment to permanently reduce hair growth for the long-term, laser hair removal may be right for you. The best way to find out if laser hair removal is right for you is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis. She’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your skin, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you reach all of your aesthetic and skin health goals.
