Smooth, hair-free skin without shaving, plucking, or waxing is possible! If you're tired of the hassle of using a razor every day, or want to stop dealing with acne-like breakouts and other bumps that appear after you shave, you may want to consider laser hair removal in Harrisburg, PA. Stratis Gayner Plastic Surgery's medical esthetician, Dianne Stein, is experienced in laser hair removal and is ready to help anyone looking for a more long-term solution.
Laser hair removal safely and effectively gets rid of unwanted facial and body hair over the course of several office visits. Most patients need between six to 10 treatments, depending on the area being treated. Afterward, most patients are free of unwanted hair for several months. When the hair regrows, most patients see noticeably less hair than before, and the hair tends to be much finer and lighter in color.

Laser hair removal uses light to deliver focused heat energy into the skin, where the darker parts of the follicles absorb it. This heat damages the follicles, causing any actively growing hair to fall out. Nothing happens to hairs that are not actively growing at the time, so if you want an area to be totally hair free, whether it's your upper lip or entire back, you will need to return for multiple sessions. Our medical esthetician will work with you to develop a schedule that best helps you achieve your goals.
Lasers are not recommended for use near the eyes, but other areas of the face are great candidates for laser hair removal, including the upper lip, cheeks, and chin. You can also talk to us about using it on the neck, back, shoulders, arms, underarms, and legs, as well as the bikini line. Just about anywhere unwanted hair grows can be treated with laser hair removal.
Since laser hair removal impacts the pigment found in your follicles, you should avoid doing anything that might interfere with the treatment before you come in for your session. This includes plucking, waxing, and other hair-removal techniques that involve pulling hairs out by their roots. Go ahead and trim your hair wherever you want it removed, if you would like, since this does not impact the follicle or the treatment.
After a laser hair removal session, you may find that your treated skin feels similar to a sunburn, but any redness or sensitivity will fade over several days. Soon, you will be enjoying your hair-free skin every day, despite not picking up a razor or a pair of tweezers each morning.
In addition to laser hair removal, the doctors and their team use light energy for tattoo removal, vein treatment, and skin resurfacing. The combined effects of these and other treatments can give you the skin you want: clear, clean, and smooth!
