Laser Hair Removal

What is Involved in Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is an advanced hair reduction technique that uses laser energy to damage hair follicles and prevent future growth. By targeting unwanted hair follicles at the root, laser energy can stop these hairs from growing in the future. As a result, patients can achieve long-lasting and even permanent hair reduction with laser hair removal.

At the Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness, our Greensboro plastic surgeon uses the LightSheer® system for laser hair removal. This enables us to treat the following areas:

  • Armpits
  • Legs
  • Bikini line
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Upper lip
  • And more

Am I A Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

If you are looking for a way to eliminate unwanted body hair for good, you may be a good candidate for laser hair removal. At Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness, we are proud to offer financing for laser hair removal to make it a more affordable option for those who desire it.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Treatment Work?

Laser hair removal with the LightSheer® system is surprisingly fast and comfortable. Its advanced technology allows us to treat large areas of the skin at once, with maximum efficacy. Plus, it’s safe for all skin types. We can adjust the laser energy depending on your hair type and skin sensitivity.

During treatment, the LightSheer® device will be passed over the skin, delivering laser energy to the targeted hair follicles. Small areas can be treated in a few minutes, while larger areas may take 30 minutes to an hour.

What Can I Expect During Recovery Process Following Laser Hair Removal?

After laser hair removal, you may experience redness or sensitivity in the skin, not unlike a sunburn. These symptoms typically fade within a few days, but you may need to abstain from certain activities to prevent any damage or irritation to the skin. Patients are able to resume most normal activities immediately following their treatment.

What Results Can I Expect from My Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

After laser hair removal, the treated hairs will shed over the following weeks. There are many hairs in the body, all of which grow in different phases, which makes it difficult to treat all hairs at once. You will likely need multiple laser hair removal treatments to address all hairs in an area and achieve complete hair removal. During your consultation, Dr. Contogiannis will create a treatment plan and let you know how many treatments to expect.

Stop waxing, shaving, and plucking hairs on a regular basis and schedule your consultation for laser hair removal. Contact us today at Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness to get started. We proudly serve the residents of Greensboro, Burlington, High Point, and the nearby cities of North Carolina.
