What is laser hair removal? This non-surgical procedure removes hair from different areas of your body using a specialized laser. At Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, this is one of our most common non-surgical procedures we offer. Many of our patients turn to this non-surgical procedure before the summer starts to minimize the amount of time spent shaving. However, it is a procedure that can happen at any point in the year. If you want to stop shaving or waxing, the laser hair removal procedure is right for you.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal uses a special laser to help stop hair from growing on your body. At Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, we use a M22 laser to help stop hair from growing on your body in the desired area. We will zap the hair follicles to stop them from growing hair or delay hair from growing again.
In order to maximize your treatments, we recommend having five to eight treatments spread over multiple months. This allows the laser to work at its highest level to stop hair from growing. We will work with you to determine the number of treatments you will need.
Is It Safe?
This is a safe and effective way to manage body hair growth. It can help remove hair from many skin types and tones, especially if you have lighter skin and darker hair because the laser picks up on it easily. However, it can work for anyone searching to reduce the amount of body hair they may have.
Where Can I Have Laser Hair Removal Procedure?
Typically, anywhere on your body that you have unwanted hair can benefit from the laser hair removal procedure. Below are the common places where most people receive treatment:
- Bikini line
If you have hair on your body you want removed, you may be an ideal candidate for laser hair removal.
Usually, we perform this non-surgical procedure on its own. However, we can also have it as part of a package, like the Mommy Makeover procedure.
Are My Results Permanent?
While it is extremely effective at stopping hair from growing, it is not a permanent solution. You will likely notice lighter, thinner hair as time goes on. Typically, most people notice an 80 percent reduction in body hair in the treatment areas. If you want to minimize the amount of hair, you will want to schedule maintenance appointments to keep up the results, similarly to maintaining dermal filler results.
