At Dania Dermatology, we are excited to provide new and existing patients with a wide range of medical and cosmetic dermatology solutions for the skin, hair, and body. A popular cosmetic treatment that is highly requested of Dr. Stanley Skopit is that of laser hair removal.
What is laser hair removal?
Many patients with unwanted hair on the face and body often spend a lot of time and money removing it through more manual methods such as shaving and waxing. However, with laser hair removal, patients can permanently reduce and eliminate unwanted hair where treatments are performed. Using laser light energy that penetrates deep into the skin, hair follicles are damaged and release hair in the active growth phase. Once the hair follicle is damaged, it will no longer produce hair in the future.
How many session do I need?
Laser hair removal is not accomplished with a single appointment. Patients will need to book several treatment sessions to notice a reduction or full removal of unwanted hair. Each treatment will result in less thickness in the treatment area. Full removal will often require patients to schedule anywhere from five to eight treatment sessions spaced weeks apart for full results.
Is laser hair removal painful?
Laser hair removal treatments are relatively comfortable for many of our patients. We utilize a topical anesthetic on the skin to numb the area. Patients often hear and feel a snapping sensation as the laser light is administered. Treatment is well-tolerated by most individuals, and we can provide recommendations for resolving discomfort before, during, and after treatments.
Where can laser hair removal be performed?
Unwanted hair anywhere on the body can be eliminated with laser hair removal, though the more popular areas of treatment include the face, back, chest, underarms, arms, bikini line, and legs.
