Washington, DC area dermatologist who provides laser hair removal services

Laser hair removal solutions from dermatologist in Washington, DC

Waxing, depilatory creams, shaving, and tweezing take a lot of time and energy. Patients with unwanted hair on the body are faced with it every day, and in order to keep their body hair-free, constantly need to treat the hair in a manner that may be painful, expensive, or just time consuming. Instead of dealing with continual attention, patients in the Washington, DC area often ask their dermatologist about laser hair removal.

Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery who believes in providing patients with both medical and cosmetic treatments to improve their body. Laser hair removal is just one of many services provided in her practice for patients who are interested in lasting results for unwanted hair are welcome to ask about treatment.

Laser hair removal is done with a handheld laser device that uses heat and light energy to target hair follicles in the active growth phase. Not all hair follicles are treated at one time, as hair grows in cycles. Patients must understand that one treatment will only provide a reduction of hair in the area, not complete, lasting results. Several appointments must be made for optimum results, preferably about six sessions spaced six weeks apart. This will vary from patient to patient but this is a good treatment plan to consider when starting out and it can be adjusted as necessary for the individual.

Dr. Cheryl Burgess describes to patients how the procedure is done quickly and easily with very little discomfort. Patients relax on the treatment table while the area of the skin being treated is cleansed and treated. A topical solution may be applied to the skin afterwards to help moisturize and reduce redness and discomfort. Patients can go on with the remainder of their day without any interruption, making it a convenient appointment no matter when it is scheduled.
