What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal at Advanced Dermatology, in Suffolk County, is customized to achieve safe, yet effective results for patients of all skin types and skin colors. We offer treatments for hair on legs, arms, under arms, bikini, stomach, and back, among other areas of the body. Laser hair removal is popular for a variety of reasons. For some it’s about a boost in confidence or a feeling of cleanliness, while for others it’s simply about wearing shorts or a bathing suit in the summer. Whatever the personal reason, laser hair removal will leave your skin hairless and smooth with almost no effort.

Why Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a minimally-invasive, virtually painless way to get rid of pesky hair around the body for good. A laser hair removal treatment at our Advanced Dermatology office in Suffolk County can eliminate, or at least greatly reduce, the need for shaving, waxing, and tweezing, making your life easier. A laser hair removal treatment by one of our licensed skin care professionals will leave your skin feeling smoother than ever.

How Does it Work?

Laser hair removal works by targeting hair follicles with concentrated light to destroy the root of the hair. The procedure involves the use of a handheld device, which one of our licensed medical professionals will adjust to best suit your needs and maximize your comfort. Our patients often report little to no pain throughout the entire procedure.

Results After Laser Hair Removal

The number of treatments needed before results are seen varies from patient to patient and depends on factors such as the coarseness of the hair and the area(s) to be treated. Though you may see noticeable results after just one session, it may take 3-4 sessions before considerable results are noticeable. Typically, as hair growth is stunted, your results can be maintained with just a few treatments. Still, we may recommend that you schedule regular touch-up appointments to upkeep your results.

Our expert staff, which includes expert dermatologists, nurses, and skin care professionals will go over aftercare with you in-person, however, we generally recommend that patients avoid exercise and hot showers for at least one day after treatment.
