Laser Hair Removal
in Bucks County, PA, and Hunterdon County, NJ
What is Laser Hair Removal?
With laser hair removal, clinicians are able to remove excess and unwanted hair from most areas of the body via technologically advanced instruments that use lasers to destroy hair follicles at the root. Laser hair removal is a permanent solution for hair removal. Once complete, the skin is smooth with no appearance of hair.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Individuals choose laser hair removal when they have an excessive amount of hair on parts of the body because it offers the following benefits:
- Permanent results
- No risk
- Easy, quick and painless
- Takes less time than other temporary treatments
Is Laser Hair Removal Right for Me?
If you are self-conscious about excessive amounts of hair in areas where you’d rather have smoother skin or where the hair is more noticeable, laser hair removal may be right for you. To determine if you are a candidate for laser hair removal, we recommend a consultation with one of our clinicians or Dr. Buinewicz prior to scheduling the treatment.
How Involved is Laser Hair Removal?
The procedure for laser hair removal is fairly easy and painless. With a special device, a clinician delivers short bursts of intense light energy to the targeted hair follicles on the chosen area. When delivered, the pigment in the follicles attracts the light, turning it to heat. This heat destroys the targeted hair follicles, which then triggers the hair to fall out. Laser hair removal is performed on most any part of the body, including face, back, arms, legs and more delicate areas such as the bikini area and under arms. For most individuals, several treatments are required to get the desired smooth skin results, with each treatment taking about an hour.
How Long is the Recovery Following Laser Hair Removal?
With laser hair removal, there is no downtime necessary. For a couple of days following each treatment, the skin may have a pink tint to it, appearing slightly sunburned along with feeling the same. Even though most clients say there is no discomfort, ice packs may be applied to soothe the skin. For those having laser hair removal on the face, make-up can be applied the following day. Additionally, it is very important to avoid direct sun exposure and wear heavy sunscreen so that there is no discoloration to the treated follicles.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
In terms of cost, laser hair removal varies with each patient as it depends where the treatments are performed, the extent of that area, and how many treatments are necessary to permanently remove all the unwanted hair. During a consultation, we can discuss the cost along with payment options and financing.
What Should I Do Next?
While laser hair removal is fairly straightforward, we recommend you schedule a consultation so that we can evaluate the areas to be treated to determine if laser hair removal is the best option to achieve your desired look, and to determine how many treatments are necessary.
