Unwanted hair on the body can be troublesome, especially when it is in a highly visible area. When patients deal with unwanted hair, they spend a lot of time removing it via methods such as shaving, plucking, and waxing. However, there’s another way to remove that hair—permanently! At Washington Dermatology Consultants, we provide laser hair removal treatments.
Patients in and around Stafford are invited to visit our practice to learn more about laser hair removal. This treatment works effectively at permanently removing hair on many areas of the body including the legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, chest, back, and face. The laser works by breaking down the hair follicles to keep them from producing hair in the future, thus permanently eliminating hair from specific spots on the body. It is a safe and affordable method of permanently reducing hair without regular waxing, shaving, or plucking. Patients love the ability to maintain a hair free look without the fuss!
Laser hair treatments must be done in a series for optimum results. Hair grows in different phases, so it is important for patients to schedule treatment sessions several weeks apart in order to hit all hair while in the growth phase. Only hair in the active growth phase can be targeted with laser hair removal, so visiting the dermatologist approximately once a month can help in slowly reducing hair. After approximately six treatments, patients will notice a drastic reduction in unwanted hair in the treatment areas. Once a year, patients are encouraged to visit their dermatologist for touch up appointments to ensure long-term results.
