Laser hair removal was once a trend, but this non-surgical, non-invasive procedure has now become so common people of all ages, genders, and lifestyles are doing it. Why? Because laser hair removal is an inconvenient way to increase your confidence in your appearance and eliminate the pesky task of frequent hair removal. Zannis Plastic Surgery has safely and effectively performed laser hair removal services in our offices for years, successfully helping many patients achieve the look and convenience they seek. Laser hair removal is a relatively affordable procedure and is a worthwhile investment when you consider that, once desired results are achieved, you’ll no longer have to spend time or money on shaving, waxing, or bleaching. Another reason why this procedure has become so common is how easy it is. It requires no downtime, no anesthesia, and very minimal discomfort. Depending on what area of the body is being treated and how many areas are being addressed at once, laser hair removal can be performed in anywhere from minutes to just a few hours.

As for who qualifies for laser hair removal, it’s appropriate for both men and women and your doctor can assess whether your skin and hair type will efficiently respond to treatment. The lasers we use have a low-energy beam for added comfort, though pain is not typically felt by patients. Most report a mild discomfort. The laser beam passes through the skin, honing in on the pigment of hair. The energy passes down the hair shaft and is absorbed by the follicle, disabling it. Any hair follicles that are in an active growth phase will be inhibited from producing further growth. However, ,it’s important to note that the laser cannot affect any dormant hair follicles. This means removing all hair may take multiple sessions in order to reach all hair follicles for the smoothest look and feel.

Why waste time and money on razors, shaving cream, wax appointment, or bleaching when  you can get exactly what you want: smooth skin for life.
