What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal has become one of the most common cosmetic treatments in America. It is a convenient method for the long-term reduction or removal of unwanted hair on the face and/or body. This treatment using DioLaze technology leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and produces long-lasting results compared to other common options. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Steckler performs effective and safe laser hair removal treatments for both women and men at Mississippi Center for Plastic Surgery. Commonly treated areas include the back, legs, arms, face, chest, and bikini area. For more information on laser hair removal or to schedule an appointment, contact our Ridgeland, MS office today.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Prior to your laser hair removal, the needed areas of your skin will be cleaned to eliminate dirt, oil, and creams. During your treatment, a technician will smooth out the skin to create a direct pathway between the laser and the hair follicle root. The DioLaze laser's energy will focus on and destroy the hair follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again. You will likely need 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to get optimal results. Your appointments are staggered to allow the treated areas time to heal and to allow time for follicles in the dormant phase of growth to change to active growth so the laser can be effective. Although this procedure is safe and relatively gentle, your skin may look and feel like it has a light sunburn due to the use of lasers. After your session, you are able to go back to all normal activities, but you should refrain from strenuous activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas recover.
