Unwanted hair on the body can be expensive and time consuming to control. Whether it is hair on the face, chest, back, legs, or bikini line, many patients spend hours every year grooming with razors, waxes, and depilatory creams. With improvements in medical and cosmetic technologies, patients in Arlington, VA can enjoy the benefit of laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is an in-office treatment that is done to reduce hair permanently. Any area of the body can be treated.
Laser hair removal is done over the course of several treatments. This is due to the natural growth phases of hair. Hair can only be targeted by the laser during the active growth phase. Because of this, patients must schedule multiple treatments to address all hair follicles. This is a must to achieve permanent removal of all hair in the area.
Using a special laser, Dr. Kenneth Neal runs the device over the treatment area. The laser targets the hair follicles and stops them from producing hair. Patients describe the feeling of treatment as the snapping of rubber bands on the skin. Topical creams can help with the discomfort during and after treatment, though many patients find it very well tolerated.
Patients who are considering permanent hair removal without waxing, plucking, or shaving can enjoy the benefits of quality laser hair removal. This is an affordable, effective, and safe way to address unwanted hair and eliminate the trouble of regular grooming to maintain hair-free skin.
