If you are considering laser hair removal, Dr. Breadon provides the following tips:


Set goals. What areas of the body do you want treated? Lasers can remove unwanted hair on the arms, underarms, back, chest, bikini line, and legs. The length of a session varies based on the area of the body treated.


Devise a plan. During a consultation, Dr. Breadon will examine the areas of the body you wanted treated. If you are a candidate for treatment, she will devise a plan with you. The plan will include the recommended number of sessions for achieving optimal results.


Schedule a treatment session. Depending on the length of the session, many patients have laser removal performed during lunch breaks. Treating the legs may take about an hour, but areas on the face may take minutes.


Follow aftercare instructions. After a treatment session, it is important to avoid sun exposure. Aftercare instructions are tailored to meet individual patient needs.


Buying razors, shaving cream, and tweezers can become costly over time. With laser removal, patients can attain the bodies of their dreams at a reasonable cost. Patients turn to the nonsurgical treatment for many reasons. Many of them are frustrated with razor bumps and are ready to bid farewell to razors and shaving cream. Others are looking for a permanent hair removal solution before bathing suit season. Regardless of why patients seek treatment, Dr. Breadon and her team can help them reach their goals.
