At Hermosa Plastic Surgery in Albuquerque, we offer advanced laser hair removal treatment, a safe, quick, and effective way to reduce or eliminate unsightly and embarrassing hair on virtually any part of the body. Gone are the days of shaving, tweezing, or waxing, which can be uncomfortable and time-consuming. Patients can receive permanent laser hair removal treatment on the face, back, chest, legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, and other spots in order to enjoy silkier skin that lasts.
Laser Hair Removal Treatment Process
During laser hair removal, Dr. Gallegos gives the patient special glasses to wear that filter out harmful light. Next, a handheld laser is adjusted to produce a beam of a certain size, pulse frequency, and power according to the specific needs of the patient. Once properly adjusted, the laser is focused on targeted hair follicles so as to damage them, inhibiting new growth. Laser hair removal treatment is virtually pain-free and can be performed in less than 30 minutes in most cases. Because hair grows in different phases, multiple laser hair removal sessions may be necessary for producing the most successful results.
