Let the professionals of South Nassau Dermatology in Levittown, Long Beach, and Oceanside, NY, guide you through the procedure. We'll cover some basics but they'll be glad to answer all your questions.
You can eliminate the pain of plucking and waxing with laser hair removal, and with better, longer-lasting results. The procedure takes only minutes, and though some discomfort is possible, a numbing gel can be used to lessen the effects so the pain does not compare to traditional treatments. Neither does the effectiveness of laser hair removal, as after a few appointments you can remain hair-free for years. Though some touch-up treatments are recommended in the future.
The reason for it being a series of visits is because of the way that hair grows, it does not do so evenly so a number of sessions are usually necessary. How many will depend on a few factors, so it's best to ask your dermatologist to give you an idea of the number of treatments you may need. One of the factors that makes laser hair removal unique for patients is skin color because of the way the concentrated light targets the hair follicles. So your dermatologist offers a different type of laser for lighter and darker skin colors.
