Did you know that laser hair removal has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States? More and more patients are beginning to realize that they are wasting time and money on razors, creams and waxing – only to require repeat visits and repeat bills for services. While an investment at first, laser hair removal offers permanent results that will save you hundreds of dollars and countless hours of shaving, plucking and waxing.
Both male and female patients alike frequent Westport Dermatology seeking a new solution for removal of unwanted body hair. For this reason we are proud to offer laser hair removal services for what is often the permanent removal of hair. Laser hair removal is effective on many areas of the body including the face, neck, ears, chest, back, shoulders, arms, legs, underarms and bikini area.
Laser hair removal can be performed in as little as thirty minutes and is very comfortable for a majority of patients. Your provider will slowly move a handheld laser device over your skin to heat the unwanted hair follicles below the surface. This will allow the hair to fall out and will prevent the follicle from growing a new hair in its place. Most patients report only feeling a tingly sensation during treatment.
You may require more than one treatment session in order to see optimal, permanent results. This will depend on the amount of hair to be removed as well as your skin and hair’s natural tone or pigment. For example, darker hair responds better to laser hair removal than blond hair.
