Patients in Frederick, MD ask, “How does laser hair removal work?”

Laser Hair Removal in Frederick

At Washington Dermatology Center, patients in the Frederick, MD area can enjoy quality care with a dermatologist who is committed to providing quality services. Dr. Ron Prussick and his team work with patients to help them understand more about how laser hair removal works in providing permanent reduction or elimination of unwanted hair on the face or body.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal targets the hair follicles in the treatment area and keeps them from growing hair. This provides results that can last a lifetime. The laser light can only target and treat hair that is in the active growth phase, so it needs to be done in several sessions to provide full removal in a specific area of the body. This is because hair grows in a cycle and the follicles not actively growing will not be affected. Our team of professionals can help patients determine the dates and times of their treatment sessions to get the results they desire.

Who is a candidate?

In the past, lasers had difficulty treating patients with light hair or darker skin. Fortunately, lasers continue to advance, and patients of all genders and ethnicities can enjoy treatment with the laser devices available at Washington Dermatology Center. We do encourage patients to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Ron Prussick to discuss this and other options available for addressing common skin and body concerns.

Why choose laser hair removal?

Treatment of unwanted hair with laser light is:

  • Affordable
  • Effective
  • Long-lasting
  • Comfortable

With laser hair removal, patients can now address unwanted hair on the body in a way that eliminates the need for tweezing, waxing, depilatory creams, and shaving, saving time and money throughout one’s lifetime!
