Laser Hair Removal

Almost everyone struggles with unwanted hair growth somewhere on their body. From your upper lip to your bikini line, stubborn hair can be difficult to remove “cleanly” with razors and waxing, which put stress on the skin and often result in unsightly bumps, ingrown hairs and redness. To help free you from this vicious cycle of hair removal, we are thrilled to offer laser hair removal, a non-invasive method that can result in a smoother, more carefree you!

Safe Laser Hair Removal 

Laser hair removal can safely reduce hair growth on any area of your body and produce long-lasting results. It works by targeting highly concentrated light at the pigment in your hair follicles, ultimately damaging the hair follicle and inhibiting future hair growth. While any part of your body can be treated, the most common areas for laser hair removal include:

  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Bikini line
  • Legs
  • Under arms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Neck

For your best results, we recommend a series of treatments. Follow-up maintenance treatments may also be necessary.

Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics of Northwest Ohio also offers waxing treatments for achieving smooth, stubble-free skin. Our highly-skilled clinicians provide the most effective waxing techniques with a gentle touch to keep your skin looking and feeling beautiful. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal can only disable hair follicles that are in an active stage of growth. Once a hair follicle is disabled, it will stop producing hair. Since hair follicles grow in various stages, we recommend a series of treatments over an extended period of time.

How long does a treatment take for laser hair removal?

Your session will depend on the size of the area you are treating. For the upper lip and other small areas, it could take one to five minutes, while your back or legs could take up to an hour.

Are there any side effects?

The most common side effects of laser hair removal are redness and a feeling of being sunburned. These reactions usually subside within 30 minutes. We can help alleviate these symptoms with cool compresses and moisturizers.
