Laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment for eliminating unwanted hair. Laser hair removal uses a process by which unwanted hair is removed from a target site using medical-grade lasers to isolate the area and stop the hair growth process at its root, under the skin.
The technology behind laser hair removal lies in concentrated laser treatments. During a procedure, lasers are aimed at an area of unwanted hair growth. The hair follicles, or hair production sites in the skin, are disabled. Hair removal treatments only target hair follicles in hair production phase.
Follicles not in the hair production phase are not affected by the treatment. For this reason, patients may require additional appointments to ensure complete hair removal.
To remove unwanted hair, Dr. Kotis offers a permanent hair removal system. Laser hair removal uses laser technology to target areas with unwanted growth. The procedure has become more popular among patients. The methods and effectiveness of hair removal have experienced a variety of developments.
After a hair removal treatment, the area treated with the hair removal system may be red or sore. Some compare the feeling to being sunburned. These feelings subside a few days after the initial appointment.
Hair will fall out throughout the month after treatment. Patients are encouraged to apply moisturizers and avoid excessive amounts of sunlight. Patients are able to enjoy smoother skin. Laser hair removal can rid the hair with precision and care.
Some patients also note that on rare occasions blistering, scarring, and pigment changes may occur. If these symptoms occur, patients are encouraged to visit Dr. Kotis’s Chicago or Arlington Heights office for further instructions.
Estimating the total cost of laser hair removal requires knowing the size of the target area and the number of treatments needed to provide optimal results. You will have a better understanding of the total cost of treatment after your first consultation with Dr. Kotis.
