Laser Hair Removal
At our Danvers, MA practice we provide state-of-the-art laser hair removal treatments to reduce unwanted hair on your face, arms, legs, or body. Even if you can pluck, wax, or shave it away, the unsightly hair grows back again all too quickly and can cause you to feel self-conscious or uncomfortable wearing the clothes you like.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal provides a lasting solution. It is just one of the many effective and specialized treatments available at the practice of board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Anna Petropoulos, a pioneer in laser rejuvenation and hair removal. Her expertise attracts patients from Boston, Beverly, and Reading, MA, and throughout New England for customized procedures that reveal their unique natural beauty and restore their confidence.
Ideal Candidate for Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal treatments are both gentle and effective. Even though the ideal candidate for laser hair removal is someone with dark hair on light skin, our office is able to effectively treat a wide range of patients with a variety of hair and skin color combinations by adjusting the laser settings for their particular color combinations.
Common areas treated for hair removal
These treatments can be used to eliminate hair from practically any part of the body, such as the:
- Face (including the upper lip, eyebrow area, cheeks, and chin)
- Bikini line
- Arms and legs
- Shoulders and back
Dr. Petropoulos strives to develop a trusting partnership with every patient who visits her practice for laser hair removal, other non-surgical treatments, or facial cosmetic surgery. During your consultation, she will ask you to show her what you’d like to improve about your appearance and will work with you to determine the best treatment options for you.
Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Laser treatment for unwanted hair safely eliminates hundreds of hair follicles in seconds. We simply scan the laser hand-piece over the targeted areas, producing a mild, tingling sensation. These controlled pulses of light are absorbed selectively by the hair follicles that are in the growth phase and have a high concentration of melanin (pigment), preventing future hair growth. The surrounding skin and tissue are unaffected, so no recovery time is needed.
Because hair grows in cycles, a series of treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart is usually necessary to achieve the most complete results.
Your New Look
Dr. Petropoulos’ patients often feel a sense of liberation and exhilaration after finally being freed from shaving, plucking, or even covering up their unwanted hair. They enjoy looking fantastic with skin that is consistently smooth, soft, and hair free.
