About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic services performed in the United States. It is a convenient way for the long-term removal of hair on the face and body. This laser treatment usually leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and provides great, lasting results compared to other hair removal methods. Dr. David Yonick and his team at Yonick Plastic Surgery in Midland, MI offer effective and safe laser hair removal treatments for both women and men in commonly desired areas like the back, legs, arms, face, chest, and intimate areas.
Laser Hair Removal Reviews
Laser hair removal is a gentle treatment that is helpful for most people. At your consultation, you will discuss your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other techniques for hair removal (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have light skin and dark hair
- Are in overall, good health
At your procedure, you will relax in one of our treatment rooms as areas are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and creams. During laser hair removal, a technician will smooth out the skin being treated to provide a direct path between the hair follicle root and the laser. The energy from the laser will target and destroy the hair follicle, which prevents it from growing back. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to get your optimal results. Your sessions will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to change to the active growth phase so they can be treated. The revolutionary laser technology we use at Yonick Plastic Surgery is able to target the hair follicle alone, which preserves the skin in the treated areas.
What to Expect
While this procedure is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a mild sunburn when lasers are used. After your treatment, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from strenuous activity or extended time outdoors for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after a treatment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or the use of ice packs to minimize any discomfort.
