Plastic Surgery Talk

Everything you need to know about cosmetic surgery procedures.

Laser hair removal is in the top five sought after non-surgical procedures and continues to grow in popularity. With major advancements in the laser hair removal field, patients can now benefit from shorter, almost painless treatments and can take advantage of the lower costs associated with laser hair removal. Though the procedure is fast, there is a high standard of efficacy and safety.

Typically, patients will receive five to six treatments in total. The first three to four treatments are performed with high speed diodes. The last two or three treatments use smaller sized lasers, 755 nm Alexandrite and 1064 nm NdYAG laser. The latter treatments ensure the removal of any remaining hairs, leading to a high percentage of permanent hair reduction and maximized results.

In patients with light or brown skin and dark hair, laser hair removal treatments can lead to 85% or greater permanent hair reduction.

"After a series of laser hair removal treatments, a patient can be free of shaving, waxing, plucking or electrolysis for the rest of their life," says Dr. Mulholland. 

The high speed diodes each have a unique method of reducing pain, making the treatment of large zones comfortable. Considering the advancements in the speed of the lasers, patients now benefit from more affordable pricing options.

A series of five treatments for removing unwanted hair on the whole body can be performed for under $1,000.
