What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a popular and effective cosmetic procedure offered at PMA Dermatology. It utilizes advanced laser technology to target and eliminate unwanted hair from various parts of the body. The treatment offers long-lasting results and significantly reduces the need for traditional methods of hair removal.

What body part does it target?

Laser hair removal can effectively target hair on multiple areas of the body, including:

  1. Face: Upper lip, chin, cheeks, and sideburns.
  2. Body: Underarms, arms, legs, chest, back, and bikini area.
  3. Other Areas: Neck, shoulders, buttocks, and hands.

Laser hair removal can be customized to suit individual needs and preferences.

Why Laser Hair Removal Treatment is used

Laser hair removal is used for several reasons:

  1. Hair Reduction: The treatment aims to reduce the density and thickness of unwanted hair, resulting in smoother skin.
  2. Convenience: Laser hair removal provides a convenient alternative to temporary hair removal methods, such as shaving, waxing, and plucking.
  3. Precision: The laser can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
  4. Long-Lasting Results: With a series of treatments, laser hair removal can provide long-lasting hair reduction, saving you time and effort in the long run.

Who is a good candidate for Treatment?

Good candidates for laser hair removal include individuals who:

  1. Desire long-lasting hair reduction or removal.
  2. Have dark, coarse hair that contrasts with their skin tone.
  3. Are in good overall health and have realistic expectations.
  4. Are committed to a series of treatment sessions for optimal results.
  5. Seek a convenient and effective alternative to traditional hair removal methods.

During a consultation at PMA Dermatology, our experts will evaluate your skin and hair type to determine if you are a suitable candidate for laser hair removal.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal offers numerous benefits:

  1. Precision: The laser targets specific hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin.
  2. Efficiency: The treatment can cover larger areas quickly, making it a time-saving option.
  3. Long-lasting Results: Laser hair removal provides significant hair reduction, resulting in smoother skin for an extended period.
  4. Reduced Ingrown Hairs: By targeting hair follicles, laser hair removal helps minimize the occurrence of ingrown hairs.
  5. Convenience: With laser hair removal, you can say goodbye to the repetitive and time-consuming routine of traditional hair removal methods.

How does it work?

Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles. The procedure involves the following steps:

  1. Consultation and Treatment Plan: During the initial consultation, your provider will assess your skin and hair, discuss your goals, and create a personalized treatment plan.
  2. Preparation: The treatment area will be cleaned, and a numbing cream may be applied for your comfort.
  3. Laser Application: The laser emits highly concentrated light energy, which is absorbed by the hair follicles. The heat damages the follicles, inhibiting future hair growth.
  4. Cooling and Protection: The laser device incorporates cooling mechanisms to protect the surrounding skin and minimize discomfort.
  5. Multiple Sessions: Laser hair removal requires a series of sessions to target hair follicles in different growth phases. The number of sessions varies depending on the individual and treatment area.

What is the cost?

The cost of laser hair removal depends on various factors, including the treatment area’s size, the number of sessions required, and the expertise of the provider. During your consultation at PMA Dermatology, we will provide an overview of the anticipated costs based on your personalized treatment plan. We strive to offer competitive pricing while delivering exceptional care and results.
