Laser Hair Removal and What It Can Do for You
posted: May 11, 2020.
Are you embarrassed by unwanted hair? Yes, men and women alike wish to enjoy hair-free skin which looks good and feels comfortable. Board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Abdel Kader Tal, offers effective laser hair removal at Dermatology Associates Inc. in Perrysburg, OH. Stop annoying shaving and plucking, and love the skin you're in.
Removing unwanted hair
Shaving, plucking, waxing and chemical removers once were the standard for body hair removal. But, who likes razor bumps, soreness, and poor results which just don't last?
At Dr. Tal's Perrysburg office, this experienced skin doctor evaluates patients for laser hair removal. Comfortable, quick and very effective, this aesthetic dermatology service gives patients the results they desire on:
- Bikini area
Dr. Tal uses a small handheld laser to deliver short bursts of light energy to the areas you wish treated. You and the doctor will wear protective eye wear through out the service. A numbing, cooling gel keeps you comfortable during the treatment sessions which may last 30 minutes to one hour, depending on how large the targeted area is. For instance, back and shoulders take far less time than the upper lip and chin.
Essentially, the laser heats up the hair follicles and vaporizes the hair. Dark hair on light-colored skin responds best, explains the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). However, innovations in laser technology have made people of most skin and hair colors candidates for this service.
You may experience some redness, tenderness and puffiness on the treated sites. These effects may last a day or two. Avoid direct sunlight during that time, but return to your usual activities right away. Typically, patients see a 90 to 95 percent reduction in hair growth on the laser-treated areas, says the AAD.
During your skin consultation with Dr. Tal, he'll tell you if you are a candidate for laser hair removal. Also, he will tell you how many treatments you need for maximum results. Hair grows cyclically; so, most people need several sessions to be hair-free, and occasional in-office touch-ups may be needed.
