Say goodbye to waxing, shaving or plucking with laser hair removal treatment.
While shaving might seem like a normal part of our routine it doesn’t make it any less annoying when we realize it’s time to shave that stubble again. Whether you’re tired of dealing with different at-home methods for removing that leg hair or if you want to bear that bikini without worrying that you missed a spot, getting laser hair removal from Dr. Alan Rockoff, your Andover dermatologist can give you that smoother skin you’ve been looking for.
The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Ever notice a patch of long hair that you just happened to miss after shaving your legs or face? Wish you never had to deal with that again? With laser hair removal now you won’t have to worry about leaving behind patches of long, unwanted hair. This treatment offers better precision when it comes to targeting and removing unsightly hair.
Furthermore, most patients will experience a significant reduction or permanent loss of hair after these sessions. Permanent hair removal is not possible through simple waxing or shaving alone.
Laser Hair Removal in Andover
Before your procedure, we will trim the unwanted hair down to the skin’s surface. Then we will adjust the settings of our laser system based on the color and thickness of your hair. Then a special gel will be applied to the skin. The gel helps the laser penetrate the skin and target the hair follicles. Then your Andover dermatologist will direct the handheld pulsing light over the treatment area.
After your laser hair removal treatment, you may be given ice packs or an anti-inflammatory cream to help reduce any discomfort. Laser hair removal can take anywhere from a couple of minutes up to an hour, depending on what area of the body is receiving this treatment. Areas such as the upper lip or chin will require less time than legs or back.
Many patients can achieve the results they want in two to six separate sessions. Each session is scheduled about four to six weeks apart.
