Are You Tired of Wasting Your Time and Money on Short-Term Solutions For Hair Removal?
Have you had enough of painful plucking, waxing, and razor burn? Are you sick of avoiding social activities because of embarrassing hair situations? Would you like to be hair-free for the long haul? If so, you might be a good fit for laser hair removal at Derrow Dermatology.
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective solution for long-term reduction. Patients can treat virtually any area of the body from big to small. Treatments are done with a simple in-office visit and don’t require any downtime making them ideal for patients with busy lifestyles.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal uses short pulses of laser energy to selectively target and break up the pigmentation at the base of the hair follicle. Over the course of several weeks, treated hairs in their active growth phase will begin to fall out leaving you hair-free. The procedure both damages unwanted follicles and prevents future regrowth for long-term results you’ll love.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
You may be a candidate for the procedure if you’re bothered by unwanted hairs and have time to commit to a scheduled treatment regime. In the past only darker, coarse hairs on lighter skin tones could be addressed with laser hair removal. However, the latest advancements in laser hair reduction allow us to tackle a variety of hair and skin tone combinations.
Common treatment areas typically include:
- Upper Lip
- Bikini Area
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective procedure for the face and body.
Jennifer Becton, LE, CME, CCE, will assess your candidacy and customize a treatment plan just for you at the time of your in-person consultation.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
Treatment times can vary significantly based on the area being treated. With our cutting edge Venus Velocity laser, we can treat large surfaces areas like an entire back in less than 15 minutes! Smaller areas like the upper lip can be done in just a few minutes. Most patients find the procedure comfortable with a slight ‘stinging’ sensation as pulsed wavelengths occur.
What Results Will I See?*
Results from laser hair removal are not immediate. While some hair will fall out directly after treatment, it can take several weeks to achieve maximum benefits from your session. Laser hair removal treatments are spaced according to your hair’s active growth phase. The majority of men and women need anywhere from 4-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to get the results they want. You’ll see thinner hairs and smoother skin with each cycle.
Is There Any Downtime?
Laser hair removal is a no-downtime procedure. However, you may experience side effects such as redness or swelling directly after treatment up to several hours. The treatment area will be extra-sensitive to the sun, so UV-exposure should be avoided throughout the entire hair removal process.
