Treating unwanted hair with today’s laser technology
- Posted on: Nov 15 2018
Men and women are well aware of how much time, energy, and cost is associated to addressing unwanted hair on the face and body. The cost of razors, shaving cream, waxes, and depilatory creams over time can add up quickly, as well as the time patients take sometimes daily to remove this hair. Instead, Dr. Joe McDonald of Kaizen MediSpa encourages patients to consider the investment of laser hair removal options.
What is laser hair removal?
Dr. Joe McDonald describes laser hair removal as the permanent reduction and removal of unwanted hair on the face and body using technologically-advanced laser lights for targeting specific areas. These lasers essentially destroy the hair follicles in the active growth phase, keeping them from redeveloping hair and therefore reducing overall thickness in the treatment area. This treatment is safe, effective, and affordable when patients consider the cost of hair removal during their lifetime.
How does it work?
Laser hair removal is achieved with the use of a special FDA-cleared device that emits laser light energy into the skin. It damages hair follicles in the active growth phase. Patients come in for regular intervals to treat their hair to ensure they get all the follicles in the area during their active growth phase. Once this is achieved, patients will enjoy permanent removal of the unwanted hair in the treatment area.
Where can it be used?
Patients can use laser hair removal anywhere, including the:
- Bikini line
To determine candidacy for treatment, it is best that patients book an initial evaluation with Dr. Joe McDonald and consult with him regarding this or other options available.
