Laser Hair Removal

Effective hair removal with lasting results

Hair can be an important part of a person’s self-expression—both in the choice to leave it natural, or to remove it. Many people dedicate countless hours of their lives to the removal and styling of their body hair. At our clinic, home to the best eyelid surgeon in Chicago, we provide comprehensive laser hair removal services to help our clients feel and look their best.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal involves the use of a machine that creates a high-heat beam to target unwanted hairs. The beam works to damage the hair follicle, making it less able to produce a new strand of hair. With multiple visits, the follicle may become so damaged that it never produces hair again. Some patients notice that their targeted hair becomes lighter, finer, softer, and overall less visible before disappearing entirely. 

What Areas Can I Target With Laser Hair Removal?

Provided that you are in good health, laser hair removal is a great option for treating the following areas:

  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Back and shoulders
  • Face and neck

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

With razors, waxing, and sugaring available as viable hair-removal options—why should a person choose laser hair removal in Chicago? Our office, headed by the best eyelid surgeon in Chicago, is prepared to talk all of our clients through their options for safe and effective hair removal. As it happens, there are many benefits to laser hair removal. 

  • Say goodbye to painful ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal is a great way to treat chronic ingrown hairs anywhere on your body.
  • Hair removal—exactly where you want it. This treatment easily targets specific areas and can even be used to remove individual hairs.
  • Minimal side effects. Many people remark that the sensations of laser hair removal are much more tolerable compared to the pain of waxing. Side effects following laser hair treatment may include minor irritation, itching, redness, and tingling.
  • Spend less time dealing with unwanted body hair. Depending on the size of the area treated, one laser hair removal treatment can be completed in a matter of minutes. After a few sessions, the results will be permanent, resulting in less time spent focusing on your body hair—for life!

How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions Will I Need?

You will begin to notice hair shedding from the treated area after your first appointment. We recommend waiting 4-6 weeks before returning for your next session, allowing hair that was in other stages of growth to be seen. The total amount of sessions needed can vary greatly depending on the individual and the area being treated. We recommend that our clients plan for 3-6 sessions spread out over a year, with annual maintenance visits in the years to follow.
