PSS MediSpa’s Laser Hair Removal
More men and women in Annapolis, Maryland are choosing laser hair removal at Plastic Surgery Specialists for a smooth, hair-free skin surface. Imagine having smooth, hair-free skin without shaving, waxing, plucking, or bleaching your unwanted hair. Laser hair removal doesn’t require creams or gels, pretreatment waxing or needles. Treatments are fast, destroying hair follicles in a fraction of the time of other methods, using only the gentle power of laser light.
Laser hair removal is appropriate for many different areas of the body, but most women and men considering this simple procedure want to focus on just a few specific areas. For women, those areas are the upper lip, chin, bikini line, arms, legs, and underarms. Men’s typical treatment areas include the shoulders, the back and the beard area.
Laser Hair Removal available in Annapolis and Easton
Performed by Registered Nurses with over 6 years of experience in laser hair removal, the procedure involves a small hand piece that touches the skin to deliver the laser light, emitting a light spray of cooling solution onto the skin just before each laser pulse. The time duration of the procedure can vary from patient to patient depending on the amount of hair treated. Most patients will require multiple treatments, with the number depending upon skin color and coarseness of the hair.
Laser Hair Removal Recovery and Results
Following a laser hair removal procedure, a patient’s skin will become red and puffy around the treatment site, but will return to normal in a few hours. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after the procedure. Patients should avoid the sun for four to six weeks before and after treatment and apply a topical antibiotic cream or ointment. Following this treatment, you can expect to enjoy smoother skin and permanently reduced amounts of hair.
Laser Hair Removal Insurance Considerations
Laser hair removal is considered a cosmetic procedure and therefore not covered by insurance; however, hair removal for certain health issues may be covered. Find out what health issues may be involved by contacting our board-certified plastic surgeons: Dr. David H. Lowe, Dr. D. Paul Buhrer, or Dr. Christopher J. Spittler.
