What is the best way to remove unwanted hair?
Unwanted hair can be a nuisance. Whether it’s on the upper lip, chin, underarms, back, legs or any other location, why not use the best technology to remove the hair long-term? Using the latest hair removal techniques and equipment, Dermatology Consultants of Frisco can make this dream a reality.
Does it hurt?
Discomfort is mild. In fact, many of our patients don’t require numbing creams to be applied prior to treatment, which is a testament to the advanced equipment and techniques used and is a claim many of our competitors cannot make.
How does it work?
Hair removal using laser or IPL works by targeting melanin (pigment) in the hair follicle and surrounding structures. Hair removal is most efficient in darker hair on lighter skin individuals, but we can treat darker skin individuals as well. However, don’t be fooled by advertising that you may see, white or gray hairs cannot be treated effectively at this time.
How many treatments are required?
Typically, 3-6 treatments will be recommended because hairs have different cycles of growth and each hair must be caught in the right cycle to be removed effectively. The time frame between each treatment will vary based on location and will be reviewed with you during your consultation.
Why should I get my treatments from Dr. Weisberg?
Although the treatments are generally considered safe, powerful lasers and IPL devices are not toys and significant side effects can be more likely to occur in untrained operators.
It is important to know the qualifications and Board Certification of your physician prior to your treatment. Please research the Board Certification of your laser provider by visiting the Texas Medical Board website at www.tmb.state.tx.us/
Dr. Weisberg is a board-certified dermatologist with many years of formal University based training in cosmetic treatments including the usage of lasers. Training of operators at other businesses may vary widely from a few hours of non-formal, non-University based training to a few weeks.
