Rockville residents ask, “Are permanent laser hair removal procedures effective?”

Permanent Hair Reduction Rockville

The average woman spends 72 days or more of her life removing unwanted hair. Removing excess hair is tedious and time-consuming. Some practices are even painful. If you are ready to stop shaving, tweezing, and waxing, consider permanent laser hair reduction. With offices in Rockville and Frederick, Dr. Ronald Prussick and the team at Washington Dermatology Center offer effective hair removal services.

The laser hair removal process

Laser hair removal has become a commonly requested procedure for good reasons. Laser energy is precise. The beam of light is focused on the hair follicles. The follicle is destroyed as the dark pigment in the hair absorbs the laser’s energy. A series of treatments significantly reduces unwanted hair in the targeted area. Laser hair removal is an effective, safe method to reduce unwanted hair in nearly any area of the body.

Are laser hair removal procedures effective?

Hair removal procedures are not limited to just women. Men and women both spend a lot of time, energy, and money on hair removal practices. Hair removal practices such as shaving, waxing, and electrolysis are minimally effective. They are tedious and require a commitment to daily or at least consistent grooming. Some techniques may be uncomfortable or painful.

At Washington Dermatology Center, we understand the value of your time. Laser hair removal effectively and permanently reduces unwanted body hair. With each treatment, excess hair is significantly reduced. Hair follicles are on their own cycles. The anagen phase of hair growth is ideal for laser hair removal, as the hair is in the beginning phase of growth. Each laser hair removal treatment targets and treats actively growing hair. It cannot treat hair that is not in a growth phase. A series of laser treatments is necessary to achieve the desired results.

Permanent Hair Reduction

Convenience, efficiency, and effectiveness play roles in our decisions. Each of these is a major benefit to laser procedures. Advantages of laser hair removal include the following:

  • Quick
  • Precise
  • Any area
  • Affordable
  • Safe
  • Successful
