About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the United States. It is a convenient method for the long-term reduction or removal of unwanted hair on the face and/or body. This treatment typically leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother while providing longer-lasting results compared to other hair-removal methods. At Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute, led by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Aradhna Saxena, our physician assistants perform safe and effective laser hair removal treatments for both men and women. The most common treatment areas include the back, legs, arms, face, armpits, and intimate areas. Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute offers laser hair removal at our Lansdale, PA location. Contact us today to schedule your initial consultation.

Laser hair removal is a gentle procedure that is effective for most individuals. During your consultation, we will go over your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other hair removal techniques (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have dark hair and light skin
- Are in overall good health
At your appointment, you will be asked to relax in one of our treatment rooms as the target areas of your skin are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and lotions. During laser hair removal, a highly trained physician assistant will slightly stretch the skin to provide a direct path between the laser and the hair follicle root. The laser beam will target and kill the hair follicle, preventing it from producing another hair. On average, patients need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to achieve their best results. This allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of their growth to cycles to move into their active growth phase so they can be treated. The specialized laser hair removing technology we use at Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute is able to target the hair follicle alone, preserving the skin surrounding the treatment area.
What to Expect
While laser hair removal is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a slight sunburn for 1 – 2 days afterward. When you leave our office, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from exercise or sun exposure for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after your laser hair removal session, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to alleviate any discomfort.
Rid Yourself of Razors
