What Cleveland area patients can expect before, during, and after laser hair removal treatments
A popular treatment requested at our Cleveland area practice is laser hair removal. Patients who are ready to address unwanted hair on the body are welcome to book an appointment at Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine and discuss with our team the advantages of treatment.
Laser hair removal is popular because it provides a permanent reduction of hair in the treatment area. Areas that are popular for this service include the legs, underarms, face, chest, back, and bikini line. Our staff provides a series of treatments depending on the needs of our patients. For reduction, just a few treatments may be necessary, while full removal may require upwards of six sessions. These sessions are spaced several weeks apart to ensure all phases of hair growth are treated accordingly.
Patients are often interested in learning what they can expect before, during, and after their laser hair removal services. Here is a quick breakdown of treatment:
Before patients can undergo laser hair removal, they must be deemed appropriate candidates. This is done during a consultation appointment. Then patients are told to avoid shaving in the area for a specific length of time before their first session.
During their laser hair removal appointment, the laser is moved along the skin to target the hair follicles in the active growth phase to damage them and keep them from growing hair.
Patients may experience redness of the skin, and will notice hair coming off the treatment area. This is completely normal and it will subside over the course of several days. Patients are able to return to their regular activities with no interruption following their appointment.
At Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine, we encourage patients to take the time to learn more about treatments such as laser hair removal that can dramatically improve aesthetics and allow patients to save time and energy in removing unwanted hair.
