Laser Hair Removal
It’s official: you’re done with the plucking, tweezing, and hair removal creams. That’s because you have a better option: laser hair removal in New Jersey from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Evan Sorokin. This procedure can dramatically reduce the amount of hair on body areas such as your legs, bikini line, arms, and back.
Hair Removal Options
There are many types of lasers being used for laser hair removal in Philadelphia and south New Jersey. Diode lasers and true lasers are available. Dr. Sorokin uses the gold standards in hair removal – either an Alexandrite laser or a Nd:Yag laser. Which laser is best for you is based on skin color and hair color, in addition to your overall skin tone and health. With 2 distinct treatment options, Dr. Sorokin is able to successfully treat virtually all skin types and even very dense or coarse hair.
Ideal candidates for hair removal have darker hair on lighter skin. The hair needs to have pigment in order to be seen by the laser and thus light blonde hair is very difficult to treat.
Most patients will require 5 or 6 treatments to achieve maximum benefit. Treatments are usually spaced out at 4 to 6 week intervals. Dr. Sorokin offers package savings on laser hair removal – call his office for more information. You can review details about laser hair removal before your procedure to form a clear understanding of what to expect.
Dr. Sorokin also offers other popular medical spa treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and laser skin resurfacing. You can learn more during your consultation.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Everyone interested in this procedure needs to remember that there is no such thing as “permanent” hair removal. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not permit manufacturers of laser hair removal devices to claim that hair removal is permanent because most people will not achieve permanent and complete elimination of unwanted hair through this technology.
Instead, you can expect permanent reduction in the number of hairs at a treatment site. This is an important concept as touchups will be needed periodically to keep your skin as smooth and as hair-free as possible.
