What To Expect After Your First Laser Hair Removal Session

May 17, 2017

Laser Hair Reduction is a fantastic option for both men and women who are tired of shaving and waxing the hair on their face as well as their body.  In addition to improving appearance, our patients tell us that by eliminating the need to shave or wax, Laser Hair Removal can also be a huge time-saver!

If you are an appropriate candidate for Laser Hair Removal, then the next step in our office would be for Dr. Leong to customize your laser settings based on your individual skin tone and hair color.

We use the Palomar Starlux 500 for all our sessions.  This highly advanced device keeps the skin cool as the treatment is performed, increasing comfort and safety.  The energy from the Starlux 500 penetrates the skin and reduces your hair follicles ability to support hair growth.  Generally, we recommend 6 sessions with at least 4-8 weeks in between each for optimal results.  It’s very important for patients to avoid excessive sun exposure of any kind of tanning during their hair reduction treatments.

Sistine Plastic Surgery’s Medical Aesthetician and Registered Nurse perform all the Laser Hair Removal treatments in any of our 5 Pittsburgh outpatient office locations. Call our Patient Care Coordinator at 412-621-3223 or email info@sistineplasticsurgery.com for more information or to schedule your first Laser Hair Reduction session!
