Unwanted hair is a concern for both men and women. Whether it’s a man with excessive hair on his back or a woman who wants to avoid the daily hassles of shaving her legs, laser hair removal is a common consideration for all genders. Laser hair removal is a method of permanent hair reduction for Knoxville area patients, and can be completed at Southeastern Dermatology. Our team of experts can work with patients in determining if laser hair removal is appropriate for their needs.
Laser hair removal can be done on many parts of the body, including the:
- Bikini line
Many patients are skeptical about this procedure, and want to learn more about how it provides permanent hair reduction. Patients must understand that more than one treatment is necessary to target all stages of hair growth. Hair grows in many phases, and the lasers used during this treatment can only target areas that are in the active growth phase. This is why patients are encouraged to schedule several sessions weeks apart to enjoy full results.
With each treatment, patients will experience a reduction of hair growth in that area. However, for permanent improvement, patients should schedule several visits.
Laser hair reduction is safe and effective, and is FDA-cleared. Patients must educate themselves about what to expect before, during, and after their sessions, and realize that more than one appointment is necessary for long-lasting, permanent results. Patients can ask any questions they may have during their initial appointment with Dr. Doppelt.
Dr. Doppelt, of Southeastern Dermatology, is excited to offer his patients laser hair removal and many other dermatological treatments to help improve the skin and body.
