Combating hair growth with laser hair removal in the DC area

laser hair removal treatment from dermatologist in dc area

Unwanted hair growth is a normal issue for both men and women. Men may be self-conscious about excess hair on their chest or back, while women might be in a constant battle with hair around the bikini line, underarms, and legs. Thanks to advances in today’s technology, patients can visit Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her team at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist who provides a wide range of services in her practice, including laser hair removal.

When hair growth in a certain area requires too much time, energy, and expense to groom every day, patients may begin to consider the advantages of treatments such as laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is a quality service that Dr. Cheryl Burgess provides for both men and women. It is beneficial for the reduction of unwanted hair and even permanent removal when patients have their procedures done regularly.

Laser hair removal combats growth by affecting the hair follicles and keeping them from growing hair in the future. The laser light used for this procedure targets the hair follicles that are in the active growth phase. This means that not every follicle in the treatment area will be addressed with a single treatment. In order for patients to see permanent, hair-free skin, they will have to have several treatment sessions done, spaced weeks apart, to treat all the hair follicles in their active growth phase. While patients will see a reduction in the hair in the area after their first treatment, it will not provide full results. Dr. Cheryl Burgess will discuss the treatments necessary to help patients better understand how the process works. She wants patients to be educated on the procedure so they can determine if it is appropriate for their needs.

Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the DC area welcomes patients interested in addressing unwanted hair growth to learn about solutions such as laser hair removal. Contact her today to book an appointment and enjoy a consultation with her team of professionals.
