Get Summer-Ready with Laser Hair Removal

Hair is an interesting bodily feature. Many people don’t get the hair growth they want in some places, and get excessive hair growth in places they would prefer to keep silky smooth. To accomplish this, a great deal of time may be spent on grooming. We shave, we pluck, we wax, we thread. Some people even turn to electrolysis to remove unwanted hair – ouch! Dr. Cheryl Citron is a Cosmetic Dermatology and Skin Cancer Expert in West Orange, New Jersey who offers the latest in permanent hair reduction: laser treatment.

Advances in laser technology have led to significant improvements in aesthetic medicine. We are proud to provide high level care with a fully trained clinical staff and innovative laser devices.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removalLaser hair removal is a procedure that affects hair within the follicle. Treatment delivers precise wavelengths of light past the skin and into follicles. Here, the pigment (color) in hair absorbs the short bursts of light as heat. Hair is vaporized in a gentle manner, and hair follicles are partially incapacitated.

It is important to commit to a full cycle of laser hair removal treatments in order to achieve the lasting results you seek. Each session will destroy hair that is present in follicles. However, the growth cycle will continue, allowing new hair to form. It is only through progressive treatment that we see the growth cycle through, achieving smooth skin that lasts for years. Maintenance sessions may be scheduled periodically to prolong results.

The Advantages of Laser Hair Removal

Our patients appreciate the comfort and efficiency of our technique. Some of the primary benefits to this cosmetic treatment include:

  • Our patients may select laser hair removal for smooth skin on the underarms, legs and arms, hands, back, face, bikini area, and more.
  • Immediate and lasting results. After the very first session, unwanted hair is eliminated. After about five treatments, as much as 90 percent of hair has been reduced. Because follicles are altered by laser light, hair should not grow back at the same rate as it once did. Occasional touch-ups may be needed to keep the skin hair-free.
  • Softer skin. With no more stubble, you can enjoy smooth skin for many years.

Patients whom we have treated with laser technology tend to feel better about their skin, experiencing a boost of confidence as well as a newfound sense of convenience in grooming.
