WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal is one of the most common laser treatments sought out in the aesthetic industry and safely and effectively removes dark hair anywhere on the body. Through a series of treatments, a specialized laser device is used to greatly reduce unwanted hair. Laser hair removal can be performed on underarms, bikini area, upper lip, chin, back, legs, face, neck and more.
THE SEILER SKIN DIFFERENCE
Dr. Seiler’s depth of experience in laser technology is the key differentiator between our laser hair removal treatment and that offered by other providers in the area. Dr. Seiler is a board-certified cosmetic laser surgeon and brings years of experience both practicing and training fellow providers on laser procedures. His wealth of knowledge allows him to properly consult with each patient to determine what treatment plan is best to fit their goals.
Another benefit of coming to Seiler Skin for laser hair removal is the top-tier devices we use in the treatment. It’s crucial that your provider uses a laser device that will adequately reduce unwanted hair while also not damaging the skin. Our laser device allows us to treat larger areas, such as the back or legs, as well as more sensitive areas such as the face and neck.
There are hundreds of laser hair removal devices on the market potentially capable of targeting the hair, but only a few exist that can actually destroy the follicle – resulting in permanent removal. Not all laser hair removal devices are created equally, and therefore results can vary widely.
Dr. Seiler commonly hears patients complain of poor results from other providers. The reason is simple –not all practitioners are trained specifically on laser procedures and do not fully appreciate the complexity of laser hair removal. It is commonly viewed as an “easy” procedure to receive and perform, when in reality it is a sophisticated treatment that requires advanced training from a specialist, like Dr. Seiler, to produce desired outcomes. Laser hair removal can be dangerous in the wrong hands, which is why it’s crucial you go to someone expertly trained in the treatment.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Patients with unwanted, dark hair on the back, legs, underarms, bikini, upper lip and chin, face and more could be a great candidate for laser hair removal. Dr. Seiler consults with each patient to determine if they are a proper candidate and what treatment plan may be best for them.
Laser hair removal is also one of the services we provide for those seeking gender-affirming cosmetic and aesthetic help. We have extensive experience working with transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming patients to ensure they get the results they want with the respect they deserve.
WHAT IS THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCESS LIKE?
To achieve permanent (90 – 95 percent) hair reduction, six to eight treatments are generally recommended. However, after each treatment you will see thinning and reduction of unwanted hair. Patients with lighter and/or finer hairs may require a few additional treatments. The total number of treatments necessary is directly tied to your specific goals (e.g., moderate thinning to near complete reduction).
If you have tried laser hair removal from another provider, we understand you may be frustrated at the lack of results. The good news is laser hair removal actually works at Seiler Skin, thanks to our advanced device and extensive experience. Our patients report that they are amazed at their overall comfort level during the treatment, lack of downtime required and enjoy safe and significant results.
