What You Should Know About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a heat-based laser treatment that addresses unwanted hair just about anywhere on the body. Laser hair removal is also effective in the treatment of pseudofolliculitis barbae (razor bumps).
At Weiler Plastic Surgery, Dr. Weiler utilizes the high speed Lumenis LightSheer DUET. This laser hair removal equipment uses state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair, and with greater speed and comfort than other methods. This laser hair removal procedure is able to safely treat men and women of all skin types and colors. It can also be used to treat a wide range of hair types, from coarse to thin and from dark to light. Laser hair removal can be used to provide silky, smooth skin.
WHAT AREAS CAN LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREAT?
Laser hair removal can be used on virtually any area of your body that you wish to have hair removed. Some common treatment areas include:
- Bikini Area
HOW PERMANENT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
In order to see the best, most lasting results, we recommend 6-8 LHR treatments to an area.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WAIT IN BETWEEN TREATMENTS?
Your hair grows on a cyclical basis. We recommend approximately 4 weeks and no more than 6 weeks in between treatments.
DO I SHAVE BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?
Yes. However, please do not wax prior to your procedure. Our lasers detect the pigment in hair follicles, thus, freshly shaved skin will yield the best results!
WHEN SHOULD I GET LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
We recommend getting LHR treatments when you will not be heavily exposed to the sun, as you cannot receive effective treatment with a sunburn or tanned skin. This includes tanning beds, spray tans, etc, so embrace that porcelain skin before your LHR treatment! Many patients opt for LHR during the Winter months so that they can have their treatment plan completed and be virtually hair-free by Summer.
