Laser Hair Removal in New Jersey
Laser hair removal is a powerful and popular treatment to help patients achieve permanent hair reduction. The Peer Group for Plastic Surgery offers this treatment to the residents of Morristown and Livingston, NJ.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an advanced hair reduction technique used to produce permanent hair reduction. Laser hair removal uses precise laser energy to target hair follicles at the root. By heating and destroying the root of the hair follicle, it becomes damaged and can no longer produce hair. By targeting all the hair in a given area, permanent hair removal can be achieved. At The Peer Group, we use the Cutera Excel HR and the Nd:Yag laser for laser hair removal. This allows us to perform both laser facial hair removal and laser body hair removal, treating all of the following areas:
- Upper lip
- Bikini line
- And more
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The exact cost of treatment will vary depending on your unique treatment goals and the extent of treatment necessary. During your initial consultation, we thoroughly discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the laser hair removal technique that is best for you. Once we develop a customized treatment plan, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of treatment.
What is the Laser Hair Removal Procedure Like?
The laser hair removal treatment begins with the application of a topical cooling gel, which helps keep the skin comfortable during treatment. For laser hair removal face treatments, we also provide you with protective eyewear. During treatment, we use one of our specialized laser devices to target hair follicles from the skin's surface. You may feel a warm sensation during this process, but it is generally well-tolerated by most patients. After treating all the hair in the desired treatment area, treatment will be complete. The length of treatment can take between a few minutes and an hour or more depending on the size and number of areas being treated.
What is Laser Hair Removal Recovery Like?
There is no formal recovery process or downtime required after laser hair removal treatments. You may experience some minor redness or irritation in the treatment area, but these effects typically fade within just a few hours. You can to return to work and all other usual activities immediately following your appointment.
What Results Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
In the days following your laser hair removal treatment, the hairs in the treated area begin to shed. Since hairs all grow in different phases, patients typically need multiple treatment sessions to achieve complete hair removal in a given area. During your consultation, we will discuss how many treatments are necessary based on your cosmetic goals.
