About Laser Hair Removal

Hair removal with a laser has become one of the most popular elective treatments in America. It's an effective option for the long-term reduction of hair follicles on the body and face. This procedure frequently leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother and produces long-lasting results compared to other common hair removal methods. Aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Basile at Basile Plastic Surgery in Naples, FL offers safe and fast laser hair removal services for women and men in frequently needed areas, including the back, legs, arms, face, chest, underarms, and bikini area. If you're interested in this hair reduction method, then we encourage you to call our office for a consultation.

Ideal Candidates

Reducing hair follicle growth with a laser is a safe process that is suitable for many patients. In your initial consultation, we will talk about your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you should get this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:

  • Want to reduce hair on their face or body
  • Want to stop using other hair removal methods (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
  • Have darker hair with lighter skin
  • Are in good, overall physical health

Procedure Technique

On the day of your laser hair removal appointment, you can lie in a private treatment room as areas of the face and body are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and moisturizers. During the procedure, a team member will stretch out the area to create a clear pathway between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The LightSheer diode laser's energy will focus on and disable the follicle, which stops the hair from growing again. Usually, you will need to get 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to reach the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Basile Plastic Surgery targets only the hair follicle to preserve the skin and other tissue in the area being treated.

What to Expect

Although the treatment is mostly gentle, the treated areas of your skin may look like it has a light sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you are able to go back to all normal activities, but you need to avoid heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. At home following your appointment, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to soothe any mild discomfort.
