One of the most common cosmetic procedures in the United States, laser hair removal is the answer for anyone who wants to remove unwanted hair without painful waxing or tweezing. Hair follicles in areas such as the underarms, bikini line or legs can be treated with highly-concentrated beams of light. This laser treatment destroys the hair follicles, leaving skin smooth and free of unwanted hair. At Blaine Plastic Surgery, we offer laser hair removal treatments at our clinics in Huntington, Manhattan and Staten Island, NY.
Laser hair removal is an extremely fast process and leaves the surrounding skin completely undamaged. The treatment uses a hand-held laser device that targets the hair follicles in the treated area. The light energy disables the hair follicles. Once a hair follicle is destroyed by laser treatment, it will no longer be able to grow hair. The treatment is not painful, and each session usually requires less than an hour to complete. Multiple sessions are usually needed to rid the area of all hair follicles. To be effective, the treatment must be completed when the hair follicle is in an active cycle.
Benefits of Permanent Hair Removal
How much time, energy and money do you spend on shaving or waxing? Imagine never having stubble on your legs or armpits again or not needing to schedule a bikini waxing? Laser hair removal can permanently give you smooth, hair-free legs, arm pits and other targeted areas. Men can have their backs treated to enjoy smooth, sexy shoulders. Women love having silky legs that are always ready for a skirt, shorts or swimsuit. It is a worthwhile investment in yourself, and the treatment will pay for itself over time.
