Laser Hair Removal in Long Island, NY
Unwanted hair is embarrassing, but finding the right way to manage the problem is challenging. For men and women in Long Island, Queens and surrounding communities in New York, Eunice E. Park, MD, who is dual board-certified in facial plastic surgery and ear, nose and throat (otolaryngology), offers laser hair removal.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Shaving and waxing are the most common ways of managing unwanted hair, but these solutions have many disadvantages. Shaving means nicks and possibly thicker, darker hair. Waxing may keep the hair from growing back quickly, but it is a painful process, especially in more sensitive areas, such as the bikini line. Laser hair removal is a quick and relatively painless treatment for unwanted hair.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Our patients prefer laser hair removal to other methods because the procedure:
- Is quick and easy
- Requires no downtime
- May reduce hair regrowth with repeat treatments
- Will not nick the skin
Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is effective for most hair types and treatment areas, but it may not be the best option for you. A personal consultation with Dr. Park is the best way to find out if laser hair removal is right for you.
What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal works by damaging the hair follicle. Short bursts of laser energy are applied to small sections of the treatment area. Each burst feels similar to snapping your skin with a rubber band. You may notice that some of the hair falls out during the treatment while other hair falls out a few days or weeks later. The reason is that each hair follicle is at a different stage of treatment. Also, if you are looking for long-lasting hair removal, this may require five or more treatments.
After your laser hair removal appointment, your skin may feel sensitive, and you should protect it with a high-quality sunscreen.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost in Long Island, NY?
The cost of a laser hair removal is based upon the size of the treatment area and characteristics of the hair. Thicker, darker hair may be more difficult to remove than fine, light-colored hair. After your consultation, we provide an estimate based on the initial treatment plan. You may incur additional charges during the first and follow-up treatments. For your convenience, we accept payment by cash, check and major credit card.
