What is Laser Hair Removal?
Men and women struggle with the realities of removing unwanted hair, from the rashes that develop after shaving to the painful experience of waxing. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective alternative to these methods that produces superior results in little time.
Laser hair removal works by destroying the hair follicle. Shaving only cuts the hair, thus allowing it to regrow, typically within 24 hours (i.e., razor stubble). Waxing removes the hair, but the follicle can still produce new hair. Laser hair removal affects the hair follicle in a way that it slows or stops the growth of new hair. You enjoy a comfortable, painless treatment with long-lasting results.
During the treatment, we administer the laser energy in short bursts across the area where you want the hair removed, such as the chest, legs, underarms, and back. Each burst feels like a slight pinch on your skin. Depending on where each hair is in the growth cycle, some will fall out during the treatment. Others fall out in the coming days, and some hair may finish the growth cycle and not produce new hair.
You may need several treatments to remove all of the hair.
What is the Cost of Laser Hair Removal?
The average cost of laser hair removal is $750 – $1,800, although this does vary by patient and the size of the surface area being treated. We can discuss the details of your cost for laser hair removal at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers financing options for qualified patients.
