If you’re tired of shaving, plucking, waxing, nicking your ankles, or having sore red skin after removing hair, you may want to consider laser hair removal. This treatment offers a long-term solution to removing unwanted body hair. Keep reading to learn more.

Why should you consider laser hair removal?

There are many reasons to consider laser hair removal:

  • You will save time every day that would normally be spent shaving or waxing
  • You’ll have smoother legs
  • You’ll be able to get rid of unwanted, embarrassing facial hair or back hair
  • You won’t cut your skin shaving and increase your risk of infection
  • You won’t subject your skin to the harshness of waxing or shaving

What areas of the body can be treated?

At our plastic surgery office near Boston laser hair removal can be used to get rid of unwanted hair on almost any area of the body. It is often used on the face, bikini line, underarms, legs, and back.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal uses pulses of light to disable future hair growth. This means that results aren’t immediate, but new growth is disabled and current hair falls out. Over a series of 3-6 treatments, you’ll get permanent results and be free of unwanted body hair. The special tool used at Dr. Russo’s office cools and soothes your skin as it targets hair follicles, so the treatment is comfortable and pain medication and anesthetic is unnecessary.

Are you a good candidate?

The CoolGlide Cutera laser used at Dr. Russo’s office can be used for patients of all skin types whether they have light skin, dark skin, or even tanned skin. It is a good option for both men and women. Some men choose laser hair removal because they want a clean-shaven face and are tired of shaving every day. Other men are bothered or embarrassed by chest or back hair. Women often choose laser hair removal to eliminate embarrassing facial hair and keep their legs and bikini area smooth. If you’d like to learn more about the procedure and find out if it is right for you, schedule a consultation to explore your options. We strive to provide you with the best laser hair removal Boston has to offer.
