Are you tired of waxing, shaving or plucking? If so, you may want to join the millions of men and women across the country who are investing in laser hair removal to get rid of their unwanted hair. According to recent research, the industry is expected to grow by more than 20% by 2028.
Laser hair reduction and removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that dermatologists can use to remove hair on any area of the body, including:
It’s also an excellent option for treating ingrown hairs.
If you are interested in getting rid of some unwanted hair, your first step is to find the right professional to perform the treatment. Given that dermatologists specialize in managing the skin, hair and nails, laser hair removal falls naturally within their expertise and makes them the best option.
At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery in Washington, DC, we use a particular laser device that relies on a wavelength of light absorbed by hair pigment deep within the follicle. After several sessions, there will be a drastic reduction in hair growth.
By going to a dermatologist for your hair removal needs, you know that you are getting the services of a board-certified physician who will successfully perform the procedure with the right equipment, skill and ability to address any side effects that may occur.
That will ensure that the patient will not be subject to any injury and complete their sessions efficiently. It is especially relevant for patients who have little contrast between their hair and skin color. Dr. Cheryl Burgess will also ensure that you are eligible for the procedure. For example, the process is less effective for hair colors that do not absorb light well, such as gray or red or blond.
