DC area dermatologist offers laser hair removal services

permanent laser hair removal solutions from dermatologist in washington, dc

Board certified dermatologist, Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the DC area, is excited to provide new and existing patients with a wide range of aesthetic services in her practice. At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, patients are encouraged to consult with our team about treatments for addressing imperfections and concerns of the skin, hair, and nails. Our practice uses some of the most advanced technology to achieve what has never before been thought possible, including permanent hair removal.

It is common for patients in and around the DC area to visit their dermatologists to find out about effective methods for removing unwanted hair from the body. Unwanted hair can be anywhere, and some of the most commonly groomed areas include:

  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bikini line
  • Face

Unwanted hair can be expensive and timely to manage. Patients often spend a lot of money over time on waxing, shaving, plucking, and the use of depilatory creams. Many patients want to find a way to remove this hair permanently. This is when the team of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery will suggest laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal uses laser light to destroy hair follicles. This keeps them from producing hair for good. However, patients need to speak with their dermatologist to find out how many sessions are required for optimum results. One treatment will not achieve full removal, as this process needs to be attended to over the course of time. Hair grows in cycles, and the active growth cycle is the only time in which the hair can be effectively treated with the laser. Patients are encouraged to book appointments several weeks apart, and may need to undergo a number of treatments to address the area.

At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, we want our patients to know that many aesthetic issues can be handled with today’s amazing technology. Contact Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her team of professionals to find out if laser hair removal is appropriate for you, and learn about the many other cosmetic services readily available through her state-of-the-art dermatological office.
