While having luxurious, thick hair is considered to be a sign of youth and attractiveness, dealing with unwanted face or body hair can be embarrassing. Excess body hair can cost you hours in tweezing, waxing, and shaving, only to come back creating a vicious cycle. Wouldn’t it be great if you could get rid of unwanted body hair for good? At LV Plastic Surgery, you can remove unwanted face or body hair revealing soft, smooth skin underneath with laser hair removal from Dr. Brian Parker, a cosmetic surgeon in Las Vegas.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a safe, effective method used to get rid of excess hair on the face or body removing the need for hours spent shaving, waxing, or plucking unwanted hair. Laser hair removal uses controlled light energy which is focused on the treatment area, targeting hair follicles and rendering them dead. Once these hair follicles have been destroyed, they will no longer produce unwanted face and body hair.

What can I expect during laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal will be performed in the comfort of our Las Vegas facilities. Just before beginning your procedure, the hair in the treatment area will be trimmed to just a few millimeters in length. The laser hair removal equipment will then be adjusted to the color, thickness, and location of the hair to be removed.

During the procedure, laser light will be targeted to the hair follicles in the treatment area. When hair follicles receive this laser energy, they are immediately killed and rendered unable to produce hair. Multiple sessions are required in order to completely remove the hair from each site that is treated.

Is there any recovery time associated with laser hair removal?

No. There is virtually no recovery time needed following laser hair removal. You can return to your normal activities as soon as you leave our Las Vegas offices! You may experience mild redness, tenderness, and swelling immediately following your procedure. This is normal and should subside within a few hours, although some patients may experience it for up to one day. You may notice that some hairs fall out following treatment with laser hair removal. You should be careful to use appropriate sun protection in the days following your procedure, as your skin will be particularly susceptible to the sun’s harmful UV rays.

What is the cost of laser hair removal?

Like all cosmetic procedures, the cost of our laser hair removal in Las Vegas is determined by your geographic location and the expertise and experience of the physician who is administering the procedure. The cost will be based upon the number of areas being treated, and the number of treatments required. We can provide you with a custom quote for your laser hair removal in a private consultation at our private Las Vegas clinic.

Laser Hair Removal — Frequently Asked Questions

Is laser hair removal safe?

Yes. The process of laser hair removal has been approved by the FDA and is a safe, effective method for removing unwanted hair when performed by a trained medical professional. This treatment works by targeting the melanin, or pigment, located in your hair, destroying the hair follicle while leaving all other tissue unharmed.

Will my results be long-lasting?

Yes. Your results will largely be determined by the expertise of the practitioner whom you choose. Choosing a cosmetic surgeon who is skilled in laser hair removal will go a long way to determining your final results. While Laser Hair Removal does require maintenance treatments in order to maintain your hair-free results, you will be happily hair-free for years to come. Once you have fully completed the number of sessions necessary to remove unwanted hair, your results will be long-lasting. Yearly maintenance sessions will be required in order to maintain the smooth, hair-free results of laser hair removal.

How can I prepare for laser hair removal?

Preparing for your laser hair removal session is just as important as the procedure itself. In the few days before your procedure you should:

  • Avoid the sun’s harsh UV rays
  • Stop the use of acids and retinols at least three days prior to treatment
  • Avoid plucking, waxing, or electrolysis on the area to be treated
  • Cleanse your skin leaving it free of oils, creams, balms, and deodorant
  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing

Can you get cancer from laser hair removal?

No. This myth surrounding laser hair removal is unfounded and simply untrue. The laser energy used in laser hair removal targets only the hair follicles in the treatment area, leaving all other tissue unharmed.
