Laser hair removal offers a permanent hair removal solution. You don’t have to worry about shaving, waxing, plucking, or using electrolysis.
To find out if laser hair removal is the right choice for you, Dr. Rosenblatt reviews your medical history, examines your skin in areas containing unwanted hair, and discusses your desired outcome. He lets you know what to expect during each treatment.
Follow Dr. Rosenblatt’s instructions prior to laser hair removal. Avoid sunless tanning creams, sun exposure, plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for several weeks before your scheduled appointment. Avoid blood-thinning medications if Dr. Rosenblatt recommends it and shave the treatment area the day before your treatment.
Right before laser hair removal, Dr. Rosenblatt can numb the treatment area to help you avoid discomfort. He gives you special glasses to protect your eyes from the laser before applying a hand-held device to your skin. The laser passes through the skin into your hair follicles, damaging them using heat. You might feel a sensation similar to warm pinpricks.
Treating smaller areas may take just a few minutes, while treating larger surface areas might last over an hour in some cases.
You can resume a normal daily routine right away after laser hair removal. You might experience redness, swelling, or tenderness that soon subsides.
Over the next several days and weeks, treated hair begins to fall out. Dr. Rosenblatt often recommends a series of two to six treatments to give you the best outcome. Repeat treatments offer highly effective, long-lasting results.
Don’t settle for constant shaving, waxing, or plucking when there’s an easier way to get rid of facial and body hair. Call Steven Rosenblatt, MD, Family Practice today or schedule an appointment online to find out if laser hair removal is right for you.
