While waxing and shaving are effective ways of removing unwanted hair, they are not the only ways. In fact, many men and women who have unwanted hair on the face and body may find themselves tired of dealing with it each and every day. Instead, many patients want to consider the benefits of a more permanent option. With laser hair removal available at the practice of Dr. Joseph C. Berardi of Scottsdale, AZ, patients can achieve the results they desire with the help of our board-certified plastic surgeon.
What is laser hair removal?
Instead of using razors, creams, and wax to address unwanted hair on the face and body, laser hair removal uses laser light energy that penetrates into the follicles of the hair and damages them. This, in turn, results in no more hair regrowth and permanent removal. Laser light is completely safe, and works without damaging the surrounding tissues. Patients find their laser hair removal treatments to be comfortable and well-tolerated without substantial pain.
How long does it take for the results of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a process, and patients must understand that it takes time for full results. This is not a treatment that is done once and provides the desired results. Instead, patients will schedule several treatment sessions weeks apart to catch hair in the active growth phase where it can be treated with the laser light. Over time, less and less hair will remain in the treatment area until full removal is achieved. Some patients choose to reduce the thickness of hair in a specific area, and these patients will need less treatments that someone interested in full removal.
