The advantages of laser hair removal
- Posted on: Jan 30 2020
Body and facial hair removal is part of many patients’ daily routines. Men and women in the community of Glenn Dale, MD remove hair in many ways, using shaving, depilatory creams, wax, and tweezers. However, did you know that you can obtain hair-free skin in a permanent manner with laser hair removal? Dr. Valerie Callender of Callender Dermatology and Cosmetic Center welcomes patients in the area to visit with her about their options for permanent hair reduction and removal.
How laser hair removal works
Dr. Valerie Callender explains to patients the safe and effective process of removing unwanted hair using laser light. The laser device used by the doctor targets hair at the root and damages the follicle to keep it from reproducing hair. With each treatment, patients notice less and less hair in the treatment area until full removal is achieved. While one treatment will reduce the thickness of hair in an area, it will not provide full removal. Patients are urged to speak to their doctor if they would prefer full removal or reduction of the thickness of hair in the area.
Where can laser hair removal be utilized?
Any area of the body and face can be treated with the use of laser hair removal. The more popular areas for reduction and removal include:
- Bikini area
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
