What is long-term laser hair removal using laser technology?

Conventional techniques of hair removal, such as shaving, plucking, waxing, and electrolysis, are linked to side effects and limited effectiveness. The long-term laser hair removal offered at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery in Cape Girardeau, Missouri is the latest method of laser hair removal and has been largely accepted by patients for its safety and long-term effectiveness, as well as its ability to treat a wide range of skin colors. Also known as epilation cosmetic dermatology, long-term laser hair removal uses lasers to eliminate unwelcome facial and body hair by “zapping” the hair follicle to slow or stop growth more successfully.

Wherever you live in the Cape Girardeau area, you can count on the professional skills of Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery laser hair removal specialists. We have assisted hair removal clients from near and far, including Sikeston and Jackson and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. If you want to learn more about long-term laser hair removal treatments, please make an appointment with a consultant today.

What can I expect after a long-term laser hair removal treatment?

Some Cape Girardeau, Sikeston, and Jackson area hair removal patients have reported crusting and lightening of the skin, as well as minor tenderness to the touch. Lightening was more prevalent in dark-skinned patients and not noticeable at all in light-skinned patients. These side effects of laser hair removal usually disappear within a couple of days. Almost all of Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery’s patients returned to their daily activities right away.

Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery consultants will advise you how to treat your skin after the long-term laser hair removal procedure and will set up a follow-up appointment before you leave. Most patients require a second treatment after about one month. Occasionally, up to six treatments may be necessary to obtain the ultimate result, depending on skin color and hair type.

How is long-term laser hair removal performed?

The long-term laser hair removal treatment is applied by delivering long-pulse laser energy to the hair shaft, which then transfers the energy to the follicle and neighboring tissue. It is the transmission of laser heat from the shaft that will eventually break down the follicle, preventing the hair from re-growing. That is one of the unique features of Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery’s long-term laser hair removal and sets it apart from other hair removal treatments. Some patients treated using this laser system reported mild discomfort from the laser’s impact but did not discontinue the treatment program because of this.

How much do long-term laser hair removal treatments cost?

The price varies from patient to patient depending on the areas to be treated. During your consultation appointment, the cost of the procedure as it applies to you will be discussed. Please ask about our special packages designed to make this procedure very affordable.
