Laser Hair Removal in Oxford, MS
Unwanted and excessive amounts of hair growth throughout the body can be emotionally uncomfortable and make men and women feel insecure about their appearance. Additionally, shaving and waxing can be painful and expensive, and these methods only offer temporary results. That is why Shell Plastic Surgery is pleased to provide a safe, effective, and long-lasting solution for laser hair removal with GentleLase PRO®.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
During your consultation, one of our licensed and medically trained aestheticians will determine if your skin type and the condition of your skin make you an ideal candidate for the GentleLase PRO® laser hair removal treatment. Candidates for laser hair removal should be in overall good health and have realistic expectations of their treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal should not have sunburned, cut, damaged, or recently tanned skin.
Men and women can benefit as GentleLase PRO® candidates, eliminating undesirable hair in one or more of the following areas:
How Is Laser Hair Removal Performed?
Prior to your treatment, the treatment area will be cleansed for sanitization and even distribution of the laser. GentleLase PRO® is applied with a small wand placed against the skin to deliver alternating pulses of light and bursts of cold air. This initial process helps to reduce pain and scabbing.
After this process, the energy from the GentleLase PRO® laser will pass through your skin to reach the hair follicle without causing damage to the surrounding skin. As your hair follicles absorb the heat produced by the brief beams of light, the bulb of the hair follicle will become damaged and prevent further hair growth.
GentleLase PRO® laser treatments can take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour depending on the size and number of treatment areas in your personalized hair removal plan. The number of laser therapy sessions you require will be discussed during your consultation process.
What Will My Laser Hair Removal Recovery Be Like?
GentleLase PRO® is a non-surgical procedure performed on an outpatient basis, and it offers little to no downtime. GentleLase PRO® recovery is quite simple, as the laser is designed to leave surrounding tissue unharmed.
Immediately after your treatment, the skin in the treated area(s) may be slightly red and inflamed, with some patients describing the feeling like a mild sunburn. Generally, uncomfortable or abnormal sensations will resolve in a few hours. However, some patients may require one or two days for their skin to return to a normal state. Any persistent discomfort can be easily managed with cold compresses or over-the-counter pain medication.
What Will My Laser Hair Removal Results Be Like?
GentleLase PRO® laser therapy requires multiple sessions before optimal results can be achieved. Hair follicles grow in multiple stages before they surface; therefore, GentleLase PRO® precisely targets these follicles at each stage to ensure dormant, developing, and developed hair follicles are eliminated.
Once a patient’s GentleLase PRO® treatment series is complete, they can expect to have slower hair growth, smooth and hairless skin, and restored emotional comfort.
Can I Combine Laser Hair Removal With Other Cosmetic Enhancements?
Some men and women who decide to seek GentleLase PRO® therapy may benefit from treating additional skin concerns with the Gentle Pro Series. The versatility of the Gentle Pro Series laser enables the treatment of vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, leg veins, red lines or patterns on the skin, and more.
Patients who choose Shell Plastic Surgery will be able to receive consultations from licensed aestheticians who will be able to determine the right laser therapy for any additional skin concerns.
