Understanding laser hair reduction treatment for Frederick area patients
Unwanted hair can be difficult and time-consuming to control. Removal may include methods such as shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams. Daily plucking of stray hairs can be painful and unnecessary. Now, patients have a new way of dealing with unwanted hair in a permanent way: laser hair reduction treatment.
Dr. Prussick of the Frederick area offers laser hair reduction for patients of all ages dealing with areas of unwanted hair growth. This method of reduction can be done on any area of the body, and most patients seek treatment for locations such as the underarms, legs, bikini line, chest, back, and face.
Laser hair reduction is safe and effective at providing permanent reduction of unwanted hair. It is done during an in-office session and most patients will benefit from several treatments for optimum results. Several sessions are needed to ensure the laser has targeted all hair follicles during their active growth phase. Only one treatment will not offer the results desired by most patients.
Patients interested in laser hair reduction are encouraged to visit Dr. Prussick for an initial consultation. At this time, patients can discuss their medical history and learn more about the procedure to determine if it is appropriate for them. The best candidate for laser hair reduction are patients who have been struggling with unwanted hair and are ready to save time and money when it comes to regular removal. Patients can spend this time to discuss what they can expect during their treatment and talk about post-procedure care of the skin afterwards. Most patients do not experience any side effects except for some redness and discomfort of the skin immediately after their procedure. This is typically mild and it will subside within a day or two.
Dr. Prussick of the Washington Dermatology Center is excited to offer a state-of-the-art hair reduction method that provides long-term, permanent results.
