Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist who provides new and current patients with a wide range of services that can improve the skin’s texture and tone, the body’s contours, and even the health and wellness of the skin. She encourages patients in the area who are seeking permanent ways of addressing unwanted hair to consider the benefits laser hair removal can provide.
Laser hair removal is gaining popularity as patients begin to see the dramatic difference it can make in their appearance as well as the time and money spent on removing this hair on a regular basis. Shaving, tweezing, waxing, and depilatory creams are often used to remove hair from parts of the body such as the bikini line, legs, back, chest, and face. Instead, patients can undergo a series of laser hair removal treatments at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery and enjoy the benefits of permanent hair reduction.
Permanent reduction is achieved when patients make a series of appointments. Our team ensures that patients understand that in order to remove unwanted hair for good, all appointments must be attended. This is because the laser device can only target hair follicles that are in the growth phase. Hair grows in cycles, so one treatment will not be able to eliminate all of the hair follicles in the treatment area. Appointments should be spaced several weeks apart, and over the course of many months, patients will notice less and less hair growing in the area. The results are lasting as long as patients go through with the series of treatment sessions.
