Annapolis area dermatologist explains laser hair removal
Both men and women of the Annapolis community have areas of unwanted body hair. These areas may include the chest, face, back, arms, legs, and bikini line. When patients want to stop shaving, waxing, and using depilatory creams to address this unwanted hair, they are often urged to consider laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is a series of treatments available at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery in the Annapolis area. Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist who can provide patients with this service to rid themselves of unwanted hair on the body. Her team is educated on the use of the laser device to target specific hair follicles and keep them from reproducing hair.
Laser hair removal is safe and the device is cleared by the FDA for use of permanent hair reduction. Patients relax while the area is treated with laser light that keeps the follicles from producing hair. Most patients are comfortable during treatment and they will find that with several sessions, they can rid their body of unwanted hair.
Patients considering laser hair removal are advised to schedule several appointments for effective results. Just one treatment will provide a reduction but not full removal because of the way hair grows. Hair growth occurs in cycles, and only the hairs in the active growth phase are targeted with the laser light. By scheduling several sessions over the course of many months, all hair follicles can be addressed with treatment. Patients who have full removal of hair are excited to save time and money on other means of temporary hair removal and enjoy life without interruption!
