Thanks to laser hair removal, you don’t have to! At Martin Plastic Surgery, we use a Diode laser to remove hair anywhere on the body, on patients with any hair color or skin type. Unlike some other forms of laser hair removal which can be uncomfortable, hair removal with the Diode laser is painless, with minimal to no discomfort during treatment.
The Diode laser treats hair in the active growth phase, and patients can expect to see a one-third to one-half reduction in the amount of hair in the treated area after one session. However, because only actively growing hair is affected by the laser, a series of treatments around 6 weeks apart are needed to achieve maximum hair reduction.
Also, you do not need to let your hair grow out before treatment. You can shave the day prior to treatment, as the laser works most effectively when the hair is about 1mm in length. After a series of treatments have been completed and maximum hair reduction has been achieved, a touch up session every couple of months is needed to maintain the desired level of hair reduction.
Martin Plastic Surgery is excited to offer laser hair removal to Dothan, Alabama and the Tri-State area. If you would like to learn more, please contact us at (334) 305-0305 to schedule a consultation!
