Which doctor in the Frederick area can patients see for permanent hair removal treatment?

Permanent Hair Removal Treatment in Frederick from Ronald B. Prussick, MD, FRCPC

Many patients in and around the Frederick community seek permanent hair removal for addressing unwanted hair on their body and even their face. Dr. Ron Prussick and the team at the Washington Dermatology Center visit with patients regularly who are interested in seeking the permanent removal of hair on the body—without having to deal with daily waxing, shaving, or depilatory cream use. Instead, patients can work with their dermatologist and have regular laser treatments done that over time greatly reduce and even eliminate the hair follicles in the treatment area.

Permanent hair removal gradually eliminates the hair by targeting the hair follicles and keeping them from producing again. The treatment must be done several times in order for patients to see the results, because it can only address hair follicles that are in the active growth phase. The active growth phase is the only phase in which the hair follicles can be addressed with laser light, and this occurs in a cycle. This is why Dr. Ron Prussick recommends that patients book a series of appointments to see effective results. Just one appointment will provide a reduction but definitely not removal of all the hair in the treatment area.

Patients describe the laser treatment as relatively comfortable. There may be a snapping sensation but this is well tolerated. Patients can also request creams that can be applied to the skin to numb it and make the treatment virtually pain-free. Dr. Ron Prussick will discuss with his patients how they want to undergo treatment and discuss what they can expect before, during, and after the procedures.

Laser hair removal is safe, effective, and approved by the FDA for cosmetic enhancement of the face and body. Patients who have struggled with unwanted hair can now achieve hair-free skin and live their life without worrying about stopping to groom these areas. Treatment can be used anywhere including the:

  • Legs
  • Bikini line
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Face

We encourage patients to schedule a consultation visit during which they can find out more about this service available for the face and body. Call us today to book an appointment and see if laser hair removal is a treatment that can provide you with permanent, satisfactory results.
