About Laser Hair Removal
Hair reduction using lasers and light sources is one of the most popular nonsurgical treatments performed at Bass Plastic Surgery and allows our New York, NY patients to avoid the burden of unwanted hair, shaving, and waxing. The benefits of laser hair removal include no downtime and long-lasting results that need little maintenance compared to alternative methods. Some of the most popular treatment areas are the bikini line, underarms, legs, chin, upper lip, eyebrows, back, and arms. If patients are looking for a long-term solution to their unwanted body hair, then they can contact our office, led by Dr. Lawrence Bass, to start their sessions now.
The best candidates for laser hair removal are:
- Patients with thick or dark hair that they want to be removed
- Patients who have shaved the treated area beforehand
- Patients who desire a long-term solution
"I had a breast reduction with Dr. Bass in July. Everything from the consultation to the follow up appointments to the office staff was wonderful. I'm so pleased with the results and should've done this years ago. Dr. Bass is attentive and very thorough. The office staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Bass!!!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 02, 2017

What to Expect
During a laser hair removal session, the patient will receive pulses of high intensity light energy from the Palomar Starlux 500 or Sciton BBL systems via a handheld device while cool air bursts are administered simultaneously. After numbing gel is applied, the treatment is performed over 10-15 minutes or longer depending on the size of the area to be treated. A series of 5 treatments is typically recommended for a satisfactory result. The number of treatments can vary based upon the individual’s hair color, skin type, and various physiological factors influencing hair growth
Patients may begin to see some slower hair regrowth and reduction in the treated areas after the first session, but the full results will not be visible until around 6 weeks after the final session. Laser hair removal is able to provide long-lasting results, with less hair growth for years to come.
