Excess body hair can be difficult to control. No matter what most people do to tame it at home, body hair tends to regrow in more irritating and pronounced ways. The worst part is that methods like shaving and waxing can cause uncomfortable side effects. Rather than trying to use archaic methods to control excess body hair, it may be time to try something cutting-edge. Laser hair removal represents one of the most advanced and effective ways to remove hair in the long-term.

What is it?
Laser hair removal utilizes lasers to selectively destroy hair follicles while leaving nearby healthy tissue unaffected. It can change hair follicles in a way that stunts their growth, which in turn is effective for long-term hair reduction and removal. Hair follicles will inevitably regrow, but skin should stay smooth for a period of six months to two years. Hair that returns will typically be thinner and more manageable.
Why are the Benefits of Treatment?
The benefits of laser hair removal are numerous and unique. The advanced way it affects hair follicles is what gives it these unique benefits.
Reasons patients may choose to undergo laser hair removal include:
- Long-term removal of hair without the negative side effects associated with shaving, waxing and other hair removal methods.
- Smoother skin than other hair removal methods may be able to deliver.
- Saving time when compared to other methods of controlling and removing excess body hair. A few laser hair removal sessions may save hours over the course of months.
- Removal of hair that tends to be problematic, which includes thicker hairs that may become ingrown when other hair removal methods are used.
Is This Treatment Right for Me?
Laser hair removal provides an excellent way to remove hair from larger areas of the body. It can also be used to thin and remove hair follicles from the legs, abdomen, arms and other parts of the body without ever touching the skin. Nearly anyone is a candidate for this procedure. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Lazor will take into account your aesthetic goals, medical history, and current state of health in order to decide if laser hair removal is right for you.
