Laser Hair Removal with dr. Sandra margoles
Depending on the size of the treatment area, your procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to one hour. During the procedure, Dr. Margoles will use the laser to deliver intense pulsating beams of light onto the targeted skin area. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, damaging the root of the follicle. This process safely and effectively removes the hair follicle and prevents re-growth. Following treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling. These side effects are only temporary and should subside within a few days. There is no downtime required with laser hair removal, but during the first days after your procedure, you must apply sunscreen and avoid sun exposure as much as possible to protect the treated areas.
The results of laser hair removal are permanent, though because hair grows in cycles and it takes several sessions to eliminate all hairs in their active growth stage. Most patients require no more than six sessions to achieve smoother, beautiful skin.
Laser hair removal is a safe, less painful procedure that eliminates the need for all other hair removal procedures.
Dr. Margoles can perform laser hair removal on nearly any body area with unwanted hair, including:
- Bikini area
- Upper lip
