Treatment takes an hour or less depending on the location and amount of hair and is a non-invasive procedure with no downtime.*
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Most healthy men are excellent candidates for laser hair removal. However, the optimal results are achieved with men who have:
- Fair or medium skin
- Darker hair
- Not gone to a tanning bed, used self-tanner, or tanned naturally.
While men without these criteria can also come in for laser hair removal treatment, the results will likely be less noticeable, and patients with more skin pigmentation are more likely to experience temporary discoloration afterwards.*
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Westfield Plastic Surgery Center uses the Lightsheer laser, the latest technology in laser hair removal. This safe and non-invasive procedure targets each hair follicle with a concentrated beam of light. The heat from the laser destroys the hair follicle, preventing hair from growing in that spot again.
Do I Need More Than One Treatment?
Hair growth is cyclical, so it’s unlikely that all your hair can be targeted at the same time. By spacing out treatments, Dr. Ayoub ensures that all hair is removed and unlikely to grow back. To receive the full benefits of treatment, you should undergo six to eight treatments every four to eight weeks.
What Will Happen During My Procedure?
Omaha patients who undergo laser hair removal will experience minimal discomfort because the Lightsheer laser cools the skin before and during your treatment.* There is no need to prepare the skin in any way, Dr. Ayoub will simply begin when you are ready by:
- Set the Lightsheer laser based on the depth and thickness of your hair.
- Move the laser over hair follicles for a fraction of a second to remove hair down to the follicle.
- Cover the entire treatment area uniformly to prevent hair regrowth.
After your procedure your hair will be gone, however some will grow back until you have completed all of your treatment.
Will I Experience Any Side Effects From Laser Hair Removal?
Dr. Ayoub has carefully selected the Lightsheer laser for its painless application and ChillTop technology to cool skin for treatment. Most patients do not experience any pain*, but may have minor symptoms after treatment including:
- Mild swelling
- Some redness
- Temporary change in skin pigment
All of these symptoms will subside a day or two after treatment, and Dr. Ayoub will give you instructions on how to minimize your discomfort.
