Many people consider body hair to be unattractive. Men and women alike may want to get rid of unwanted hair on their face, chin, arms, back, and legs permanently, and in a safe manner. This is where the laser surgery is far better than more traditional hair removal methods such as tweezing, shaving, waxing, and using depilatory cream. In the U.S., especially in Las Vegas, the technique of laser hair removal is very popular among those who desire permanent alleviation of unwanted hair. As the name implies, laser energy is used to penetrate and destroy the hair follicles to restrict hair growth in the desired area(s). Because the laser is only used in the hair follicle, the surrounding skin is left undamaged. This is the main reason why our physicians suggest laser hair removal in Las Vegas: the safety of their patients is their top most priority when it comes to choosing cosmetic procedures.
According to our experts, although laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure, its benefits are not limited to aesthetics. In addition to gaining smooth, hairless skin; the treatment can reduce the costs, inconvenience, and time spent on the other methods of hair removal such as shaving. To ensure all these benefits, our licensed physicians perform the initial consultation, wherein a thorough physical examination is performed, consisting of an evaluation of your medical history, prior cosmetic procedures, medications being taken, and existing skin concerns. Further, the areas of unwanted hair along with your personal goals are assessed to determine the most suitable treatment plan for getting the desired results.
The Eligibility Criteria
Laser hair removal surgery in Las Vegas is ideal for those who wish to alleviate the growth of unwanted hair permanently on certain parts of their body. There was a time when only people with light skin and dark hair were preferred for laser removal. However, with the technologically advanced Lumenis® system that uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), it has become possible to treat people of all hair and skin types. Our physicians prefer this system as it can cover the largest areas in least amount of time, making this treatment the most efficient one available.
Depending on the size of the area, and number of areas to be treated, the laser hair removal procedure may require anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. During the session, the laser system is used in the treatment area to deliver intense pulses of laser light, which the follicles absorb, ultimately destroying the follicles. Because the laser equipment has a cooling mechanism, the patient experiences little to no discomfort. People with sensitive skin may experience mild redness after the treatment, but this tends to fade quickly. In the majority of cases, anesthesia is not required.
For best results, we recommend several treatments, which are spaced out roughly 4 to 6 weeks. For some patients, the treatment is scheduled after as much as 6 to 12 months. After the first series of procedures, the hair growth significantly reduces in the treated area. In case of any re-growth, the hair is very fine and light, which does not need removal.
It is around $1,000 but varies according to the area size and number of areas to be treated.
