This Woman Hasn’t Used a Tanning Bed in 40 Years, But Is Paying the Price Now
An In-Office Treatment That Completely Cleared Up One Woman's Skin
Tired of shaving all the time? Find out if cosmetic laser hair removal is your next step to smoother skin.
Whether you are embarrassed by dark unwanted hair, or you are just tired of having to shave and wax often, there are many reasons why people turn to laser hair removal. Our Baton Rouge, LA cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Ann Zedlitz is here to tell you a little bit about how this hair removal system works.
How does laser hair removal work?
Through the use of a special medical laser, this beam safely penetrates through the skin to target, heat up and destroy hair follicles. Unlike other hair removal methods that only remove the top layer of hair that’s visible on the surface, this cosmetic treatment actually destroys the hair follicles to prevent the hair from growing back.
What are the benefits of getting this treatment?
The question on everyone’s mind at this point is, “What are the pros to choosing this kind of treatment?” Laser hair removal shouldn’t be confused with electrolysis, which is designed for permanent hair removal; however, laser treatment could be all you need to significantly reduce unwanted hair. In fact, it’s often enough that people don’t need to shave these treated areas anymore.
Plus, laser hair removal can be performed on just about any part of your body. Whether you are tired of shaving or waxing your legs or you have unwanted hair on your chest, underarms, stomach, back or face, our Baton Rouge dermatologist can remove hair to reveal the smoother results you’ve been looking for.
Of course, people who are used to waxing or even tweezing (ouch!) may be a bit worried that laser hair removal may also be painful. The last thing you want to do is replace one painful technique for another. While it won’t be as painless as shaving, it is less painful than waxing. Plus, we can apply ice to the areas beforehand to numb the pain before and after your treatment. You’ll also notice less and less discomfort with this treatment over time.
