Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon Sheila A. Bond, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Before the invention of laser hair removal, the options for removing unwanted hair ranged from constant shaving to stinging wax and downright painful electrolysis needles. This new procedure can permanently remove hair from nearly any part of the body using the cool light of the laser.
Previously, electrolysis was the only method of reasonably permanent hair removal. Its greatest disadvantage was that electrolysis worked by inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle, one at a time. An electric shock was administered to burn each follicle and retard hair growth. The process was long, tedious and painful with varying results.
Laser hair removal uses laser light energy which passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. The laser light scans the area being treated and disables a large number of the treated follicles almost immediately. Since the hair grows in cycles, 3 to 4 treatments are recommended to remove all of the hair growth. Laser hair removal is appropriate for all parts of the body and all skin types.
Some patients may feel a slight discomfort during the procedure;Dr. Sheila Bond will prescribe a lidocaine-based numbing cream to apply before your treatment.
