Laser hair removal is the most effective method of hair reduction, offering permanent results. At Baldone Reina Dermatology, we offer laser hair removal services to patients in Slidell, Covington, the Northshore and New Orleans, LA.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an advanced hair reduction technique that uses light energy to heat and destroy hair follicles. Without a functioning hair follicle, the body can no longer produce hair, resulting in permanent hair removal. Laser hair removal is a great option for getting rid of unwanted body hair, and is safe for all skin types and hair types. At Baldone Reina Dermatology, we use the Cynosure laser or Fotona Dynamis laser, depending on your hair type and skin color. Laser hair removal can be performed on the following areas:
- Bikini line
- Upper Lip
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
If you elect to have laser hair removal at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our highly skilled aestheticians who will assess your treatment goals to determine the best approach to your hair removal treatment. Once these variables are evaluated, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
What is the Laser Hair Removal Treatment Like?
During the laser hair removal treatment, we will use a handheld laser device to deliver light energy to hair follicles in the desired treatment area. This process is often compared to the feeling of a rubber band snapping on the skin, although most patients find it tolerable. Once the laser device is passed over the entire treatment area, your treatment is complete.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following Laser Hair Removal?
After your laser hair removal treatment, you may experience redness or sensitivity in the treatment area. These are common effects of treatment, and typically fade within a day or two. As the skin heals, you may need to avoid excessive sun exposure to prevent damage to the skin. Despite these minor side effects, you will be able to return to work and all other normal activities immediately following your appointment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
Over the weeks following your laser hair removal appointment, the treated hair follicles will shed. Once this happens, the hair follicles will no longer produce hair, resulting in permanent hair reduction. However, since hairs all grow at different rates and in different phases, multiple laser hair removal sessions are typically required to successfully treat all of the hairs in an area.
