To eliminate unwanted body hair for good, patients need to look no further than laser hair removal treatments at Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center. We offer this effective hair reduction solution to individuals residing in Washington, DC, Arlington, and surrounding areas of Maryland and Virginia.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive hair reduction solution that uses non-invasive laser energy to treat unwanted body hair. Laser hair removal is ideal for patients who are tired of shaving, waxing, and plucking hairs to maintain smooth, hairless skin. Using laser energy, we can precisely target and destroy hair follicles to prevent them from producing hair in the future. As a result, patients can enjoy a long-term reduction in unwanted body hair. The laser hair removal treatment is even safe enough to use in delicate areas such as the bikini line or upper lip. At Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center, we specialize in both Palomar laser and IPL techniques for laser hair removal.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost in Washington, DC?
The cost of your laser hair removal treatment will vary depending on the size and number of the areas being treated, as well as the number of treatments necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your cosmetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to provide the full cost of your treatment. We offer flexible financing options to ensure that each patient has access to the treatment that they need. We also accept cash, checks, and major credit cards for your convenience.
What is Laser Hair Removal Like?
Laser hair removal is a relatively quick procedure, depending on the size of the area being treated. During treatment, a handheld device will be passed over the skin in the desired treatment areas. It will emit laser energy that targets hair follicles in the skin, heating and destroying them in the process. Although this treatment is mostly comfortable, some patients compare the feeling to being snapped with a rubber band.
Is There Any Recovery Period After Laser Hair Removal?
After your laser hair removal treatment, you will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately. However, many patients experience redness and a mild sensitivity in the skin that is similar to a sunburn. We recommend that patients limit sun exposure and wear sunscreen to prevent any damage to the skin while it recovers from treatment.
When Will I Notice Results from Laser Hair Removal?
Most patients begin to notice results from laser hair removal within a few weeks of treatment. However, the treatment is only effective on hair follicles that are currently in a growth phase. For this reason, multiple treatment sessions are often necessary to ensure that every follicle is treated and maximum hair removal is achieved. We typically recommend a series of four to six treatments for optimal results.
