Unwanted hair is a common complaint in both men and women. Whether it’s excessive back hair on a man or dark hair on the legs of women, it can be time-consuming to remove on a daily basis. Waxing, shaving, plucking, and depilatory creams are often used to achieve results, but hair will continue to regrow. Instead, the team of Hollywood Dermatology and Cosmetic Specialists is here to educate patients on the benefits of laser hair removal.
How laser hair removal works
Our doctors describe laser hair removal as the use of laser light to penetrate into the hair follicles to damage them. In doing so, this keeps the follicles from replacing the hair, ensuring permanent hair removal. At Hollywood Dermatology and Cosmetic Specialists, we provide laser hair removal, which can be done in a way to reduce the thickness of hair in the area or remove all the hair in the treated area.
When is the best time to get laser hair removal?
Patients can get laser hair removal at any point in time. However, it does take several treatment sessions to achieve results. Women who want to have their body swimsuit-ready by summer may choose to start treatments in the fall and throughout the winter to have their final results completed by the end of spring. Patients will have their treatments done over the course of several months, returning to the office every few weeks. When completed, patients have full, permanent hair removal and can say goodbye to all their hair removal products!
Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal used to only be available to patients with light skin and dark hair. However, continued advances in laser therapies and treatments now allow patients of all ethnicities and skin tones to enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal!
