Laser Hair Removal
What is laser hair removal?
SHarper Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery proudly offers laser hair removal for all skin types. Our expert technicians will use a laser that is attracted to the pigment in the hair follicle, resulting in destruction of that follicle.
Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?
The Cutera Excel HR treatment that we offer is both safe and effective for all skin types. It should be noted, however, that white, red and gray hair cannot be treated with laser hair removal.
What should I do to prepare for my laser hair removal treatment?
It is important not to wax or thread the area for 3 weeks prior to treatment. It is also important to shave the area to be treated.
What does the laser feel like?
The laser often feels like a hot rubber band snap and can create a sunburn like sensation in your skin that will typically last 30 minutes to a few hours.
Can I still wax or thread my hair in between laser hair removal treatments?
No, but you may shave.
What areas can be treated?
We can treat virtually anywhere on the body.
How many treatments will I need?
It varies by skin type and hair type, but our expert technicians will let you know during your complimentary consultation. Schedule today at (317) 399-4567!
