Laser hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. If you struggle with removing unwanted hair, you’re not alone. Many find it difficult to keep up with the time-consuming process of hair removal like waxing and shaving.
At KH Plastic Surgery, we’ve mastered the process of laser hair removal and stand behind it as one of the best ways to achieve permanent hair reduction. Prior to a laser hair removal treatment, patients must abstain from tweezing, waxing or any other unwanted hair treatment that removes the hair from its root. Laser is attracted to the melanin, or pigment of the hair follicle. The hair must be in its anagen or active growth phase so the night before or morning of your appointment we ask you to please shave the area that you are getting treated. You should also avoid any sun exposure or tanning beds 2 weeks prior to your laser hair removal treatment.
Laser hair removal treatments can be done once every 4-6 weeks.
The following areas can be treated:
- Full face
- Full arms
- Half arm (upper or lower)
- Lower back
- Full back
- Full legs
- Lower legs
