Westlake Village area dermatologist recommends therapeutic laser therapy for hair reduction and removal
Therapeutic laser therapy has been around for many years, and Dr. Daphne Panagotacos of Westlake Village, California is pleased to offer it for a variety of treatments. The ICON laser system used in her practice offers exceptional treatment options for patients who want to address a myriad of skin concerns. This device is great for:
- Treating rosacea, melasma, and other pigmentation issues
- Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improving texture and tone of the skin
- Reduce the appearance of surgical scars
- Clearing blood vessels and pigmentation on the face
- Removing unwanted hair on the body
Laser Hair Removal
Using today’s laser technology, patients can now remove unwanted hair on the body. We have performed this procedure on hundreds of men and women on different areas of the body. This includes the underarms, legs, bikini line, chest, and back. Patients who are tired of shaving, waxing, plucking, and using depilatory creams are often excited to find out more about this procedure and how it can save both time and money!
How it Works
Laser hair removal works by targeting hair in the active growth phase. This cycle occurs every few weeks. The practitioner may administer a cooling and numbing gel onto the treatment area before she uses the laser to target the hair follicles and keep them from producing hair ever again! Patients who undergo one or two treatments may have noticeable reduction in the hair, though it does not provide full removal unless patients attend a series of sessions. For most patients, six to eight sessions will offer hair-free skin but you may still need touchups at some point. These treatments should be spaced apart over time to target the proper cycle of the hair growth for optimum results.
