Potomac dermatologist reviews the cost and expectations of laser hair removal

Cost and expectations of laser hair removal

A popular procedure performed at Potomac area dermatology office, Washington Dermatology Center, is laser hair removal. Laser hair removal has become the best way to eliminate unwanted hair for good because it meets and exceeds the expectations of patients. Both men and women will benefit from laser hair removal, and Dr. Ron Prussick reviews with his patients what can be achieved with regular treatments.

Laser hair removal is not a “once and done” kind of procedure. Instead, several treatments must be done over the course of many months to achieve permanent hair reduction. The reason for this is that the laser light can only target hair follicles in the active growth phase. Hair grows in cycles, and these cycles change over several weeks. By scheduling appointments weeks apart, patients will be able to target every hair follicle in the treatment area for full results. However, if patients just want to reduce the amount of hair in an area, such as the chest or back, just a few treatments will allow them to achieve the look they desire.

Dr. Ron Prussick reviews with patients the cost of laser hair removal, and explains approximately how many treatments may be needed to reach the desired results. It may be difficult to determine exactly how many sessions are needed, so the cost quote given to patients may be a general quote and not a definitive amount. Our practice will also work with patients on developing payment plans that work with their budget to make treatment achievable on even the tightest of budgets.

If you live in or around the area of Potomac and want to speak to a quality dermatologist about ways of achieving hair-free skin, contact Dr. Ron Prussick and his team at Washington Dermatology Center today to book a consultation visit and initial examination. We work closely with our patients to help them decide what will work best for their specific skin and body needs and encourage new patients to book appointments at our state-of-the-art dermatological facility.
