Some of our patients have suffered with the issue of unwanted hair for years. This condition can affect the face, most especially on the upper lip or the eyebrow area, under the arms, on the legs, and in the bikini zone; additionally, men most commonly struggle with hair on the back or chest. The struggles with unwanted hair have been exacerbated by removal treatments that are messy, expensive, and painful. These treatments have included plucking, waxing, shaving, depilatory creams, and electrolysis, all of which have temporary effects and most often are irritating, painful, time-consuming, and inconvenient. Consider permanent laser hair reduction, a much more pleasant method, offered at the Missoula office of Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates, PLLC. Contact our plastic surgery practice to learn more about this exciting opportunity.
Available at Dr. Stephen P. Hardy's Missoula practice, permanent laser hair reduction is a gentle, non-invasive, long-lasting solution for unwanted hair on all body parts and any skin type.
We use the most-up-to-date laser technology for permanent laser hair reduction treatment at our Missoula practice. The treatment of unwanted hair has been revolutionized with laser technology for the permanent reduction of hair. With this method, patients can now experience gentle, effective, and convenient treatment of their unwanted hair. The hair is permanently reduced without causing damage to the finer structures of the skin or to the pores. Most areas can be treated in 10 – 20 minutes, although larger areas like the legs and back can take longer. Please note that gray or light hair does not respond to laser hair reduction.
Another advantage of using the latest laser technology is its large “spot size.” This means that our patients can expect fewer pulses of the laser for the same treatment area. Comfort for the patient is increased, while downtime is decreased. Patients familiar with older lasers or with electrolysis usually switch to treatments with our newer laser technology to experience its advantages.
Permanent laser hair reduction works by creating a high-intensity light that is directed to penetrate deep into the tissues of the skin, where it can deliver therapeutic heat in a controlled amount. With the latest technology features, patients can be treated optimally with minimal possible side effects.
There is no longer a need to go through life with unwanted body hair. At Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates, PLLC, we are pleased to be able to offer revolutionary permanent hair reduction treatment to all of our patients.
