What you need to know about laser hair removal treatments
Are you wondering if laser hair removal is right for you? Do you have unwanted hair you are tired of plucking and shaving off? Have you tried electrolysis and are unsatisfied with either the treatment or the result? Chances are good laser hair removal is the perfect solution for you. Your doctors at The Rockoff Dermatology Center in Brookline, Massachusetts, want you to know about why laser hair removal can work for you.
Laser hair removal works by heating the hair follicle with a laser. The pulses of the laser damage or destroy the follicle, so hair doesn’t grow back. Your doctors at The Rockoff Dermatology Center want you to know that laser hair removal can be used to treat areas including your:
- Chin and upper lip
- Sideburns and other areas of your face
- Underarms and legs
- Back and bikini line
Laser hair removal may be right for you because it is much more comfortable than electrolysis. Unlike electrolysis, laser hair removal doesn’t damage the skin around the hair follicle. Your skin will remain cool and unscarred.
It is also right for you because the treatments are quick. For smaller areas like the upper lip, it may only take between 2 and 5 minutes. Underarms can take 5 to 15 minutes, and your bikini line can take about 30 minutes. For larger areas of your body including your legs and back, you should allow 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Your doctors at The Rockoff Dermatology Center will do a comprehensive consultation with you and answer any questions you might have about treatment and the results you can expect. It’s time to stop thinking about plucking and shaving, and start thinking about laser hair removal. You deserve to look great without your razor, so it’s time to discover why laser hair removal is right for you.
