Excessive amounts of hair that grows in distinctly noticeable areas on the body can make a person feel embarrassed and insecure about their appearance. Most hair removal treatments and at-home methods like shaving and waxing can be painful and only provide temporary results. Fortunately, Dr. Hochstein offers laser hair removal with GentleMax Pro® to safely and effectively eliminate unwanted and stubborn hair in multiple areas of the body.
Ideal candidates for laser hair removal must be in good health, have no cuts or damaged skin on the treated area, and have realistic expectations. Patients who experience stubborn ingrown hair may also benefit from a laser hair removal treatment. Both men and women can benefit from this treatment to eliminate undesirable hair in one or more of the following areas:
- Bikini area
Your laser hair removal is a fast, safe, and non-surgical treatment that is performed on an outpatient basis. GentleMax Pro® uses a unique dual-mode system and a dynamic cooling device (DCD) that lets out cold bursts of air on the treated area. This will provide patients with a comfortable and pain-free treatment without the need for anesthesia or traditional numbing creams. It is also equipped with the most significant spot size in the industry (about 2.4 cm) to address larger areas of the body like the back or legs.
Before you come in for your treatment, be sure to shave along the treated area you wish to address. During your procedure, the GentleMax Pro® will eliminate unwanted hair by targeting and destroying the follicle at the root, thus leaving the surrounding skin and tissue unharmed. This will safely and effectively reduce hair growth on all skin types in multiple areas.
Because laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure, you will be able to return to your regular activities after your treatment. You may experience some temporary skin irritation and redness, but this should resolve after a few days. Make sure to protect your new contours from direct sun exposure and apply plenty of sunscreen daily. It is important that you follow all instructions given to you for a quick and easy recovery.
Following a laser hair removal treatment, you will notice a reduction in the amount and thickness of hair. Your skin will look and feel smoother after just one sitting. A laser hair treatment will also boost your appearance and self-esteem. On average, you will need to undergo at least six treatments to get the results you desire. Additional touch-up sessions may be required depending on the amount of hair in the treated area.
