Do you feel like you spend too much time and money on hair removal? Are you tired of razor burn, plucking, and waxing? Do you want a fast, virtually painless hair removal option that could result in permanent hair reduction? If so, laser hair removal could be the treatment you’ve been waiting for! At ProMD Health in Baltimore led by Dr. Gavrila, we’re proud to offer top-quality hair removal treatment with Forever Bare BBL to help you achieve your ideal image.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is the fastest, longest-lasting treatment option to remove unwanted hair and leave your skin soft and smooth. The laser targets the pigment in your hair and effectively destroys the hair follicle, delaying or completely preventing new hair growth in the future.
Traditional laser treatments used high-energy blasts to heat the hair follicles and prevent new hair growth. We offer a revolutionary new technique from Forever Bare BBL, which emits repetitive, low-energy laser pulses. This method is gentler and protects your skin while achieving even hair removal. Even better, the specialized handheld device includes a cooling plate to ensure your comfort during treatment.
How Does This Treatment Compare to Other Hair Removal Methods?
Most hair removal methods require frequent treatment to maintain smooth, hair-free skin. Laser hair removal is the only option offering long-term results, which can be permanent for some patients. Unlike shaving, laser treatment targets the hair follicle beneath the skin and heats it to delay or permanently end growth. Other methods, such as waxing, threading, and plucking, remove the hair but do not treat the follicle, which begins new hair growth almost immediately. The same is true for hair removal cream, which dissolves the hair strand but cannot prevent new growth.
While each traditional method of hair removal can deliver effective results for a short time, they all require maintenance. Beyond this, each hair removal method comes with a cost. Laser treatment can save you both time and money by offering powerful, less frequent treatments that address unwanted hair growth at its root.
Which Areas Can Be Treated?
Thanks to its versatile design, we’re able to use laser treatment technology on almost every part of your body. Some of the most commonly treated areas include the arms, legs, bikini area, back, chest, underarms, face, neck, and hands.
How Does It Work?
If you’re considering laser hair removal, our team is ready to walk with you through the treatment process. Every patient’s experience is different, but here is a general idea of what you can look forward to when you choose to pursue treatment at our professional office:
During this appointment, one of our talented doctors will examine your areas of concern and help you determine your candidacy for treatment. They will also recommend a personalized treatment plan to achieve your desired results. For most patients, this consists of 6-8 treatments spread out with 6-8 weeks between each appointment. Once you are approved for treatment, you can begin looking forward to your first appointment!
On the day of your appointment, we recommend that you avoid wearing makeup or self-tanner. In addition, you should ensure that you have shaved the target areas before your appointment. Your doctor will ensure that your skin is clean before beginning treatment. You may feel some warmth and slight pulses from the handheld device, but most of our patients report that treatment is completely painless.
Your appointment time will vary based on the areas treated, but a normal appointment takes between 15-45 minutes. Once your doctor is finished treating the target areas, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities with zero downtime.
Immediately after treatment, your skin may look slightly redder than normal. This will fade in the first 24-48 hours. You should plan to avoid the sun as your skin heals. After about 6-8 weeks, you can return for your next treatment. Most patients begin to notice their final results appearing after 4-6 treatments. New hair growth is minimal, and their skin is smoother and softer than before.
Final results can appear several weeks after your last treatment and typically last 6-12 months. However, a majority of patients report at least partial permanent hair reduction, especially after completing their recommended treatment plan.
Am I an Ideal Candidate?
If you are a man or woman who wishes to see long-term or permanent hair reduction on various parts of your body, you may be an ideal candidate for this treatment. Thanks to the advanced technology of the laser, we’re able to treat most skin types and tones safely. Thanks to the gentle laser and the cooling plate, treatment is even comfortable for patients with sensitive skin.
This treatment may not be ideal for patients with very light hair, which does not have enough pigment to be effectively targeted by the laser. In addition, you may wish to wait to pursue treatment if you have an active skin infection or irritation in the target area. If you have questions about your candidacy, our doctors would be happy to evaluate you for treatment during your initial consultation.
