Laser Hair Removal

Considering only those performed by board-certified otolaryngologists, dermatologists and plastic surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery was able to record 901,571 hair removal procedures in 2013 in the US (part of the more than 11 million cosmetic surgical and non-surgical treatments in the same year, which is 12 percent increase from 2012).

Beauty and good looks make one much more confident; but with the perfectly smooth skin and stunning beauty that laser hair removal can provide, a person’s level of confidence is sure to soar.

Laser hair removal, which was introduced during the latter part of the 1990s and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration subsequently, is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure for the permanent reduction of hair. Compared to other hair removal procedures, such as tweezing, shaving, waxing and electrolysis, laser hair removal is faster, much more effective in permanently reducing the hairs of the body, and painless.

The website of Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery talks about the use of the CynoSure Elite, the latest in laser hair removal technology which has consistently displayed unmatched efficiency in removing unwanted hair, as well as client comfort. Working on the Cynosure’s Elite Aesthetic Workstation, board-certified surgeons are also enabled to perform the hair removal procedure on anyone, regardless of his/her type of skin.

Laser hair removal can be performed on parts of the body (including the face, arms, legs, underarm and bikini line) where unwanted hair has grown; it involves the use of a laser that is designed to radiate intense light on the skin. This light is supposedly absorbed by the hair follicles’ pigments, destroying hair in the process. Since hair grows in cycles, however, only active follicles would be affected by the light. Due to this, as well as to individual differences in the density of hair, the number of procedures, to achieve desired results, will definitely vary among clients. While some clients will require only about four procedures, other may need as many as six. Each procedure, though, will have to be done 4 to 8 weeks apart from each other.

Experts in cosmetic procedures, as well as the website of Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery, gives only one strong advice to clients – that whatever type of procedure is to be performed (but more so if it is a surgical procedure), make sure that the person who will conduct it is board-certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery, for optimum safety and the best results.
