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.
"My teenage daughter and I are both patients of Dr. Kasper. The reception area is modern and bright. The reception area staff is always welcoming. Dr. Kasper is friendly and efficient. Wait time is short, which I appreciate. I am thinking about booking an aesthetician appointment or two in the near future."- M.A. / Yelp / Jun 30, 2019
"Woowwwww! Went in for a while body exam because I gave fair skin. Best experience I have had at a dermatologist, or maybe at any doctors office ever. So clean. Punctual. Organized. Pleasant. The PA Amy that I saw was personable, pleasant and knowledgeable! What a tremendously positive experience! Would highly recommend !"- M.S. / Yelp / Feb 26, 2020
"Excellent service from front desk to providers!!"- D.P. / Google / Feb 20, 2020
"Absolutely a positive experience. The office is really well designed. I walked in and was greeted and taken care of right away. The woman doing my registration was very nice. The doctor (Dr. Manion) was friendly and all business. Took care of my issue that day in less than 5 minutes. Pain free. Solid explanations. Great doctor. Scheduling a follow up was easy too. Amanda made it seamless and simple."- B.M. / Google / Feb 14, 2020
"I am new to this practice so I have only been there twice so I cannot make an overall rating yet. I will say that the check in receptionist was great. There was a discrepancy with my copay, the woman double checked the information and verified on her end what she was seeing which was incorrect. She then took me at my word and charged me the copay that I paid last time in case what I was saying was accurate. I confirmed later with the office building department (which was also a very pleasant and positive phone call) The front desk woman did not argue and neither did I. It was just a very pleasant transaction that in my experience with payment does not happen very often so it was refreshing and I am very grateful to her. Same thing with the billing department Jennifer I believe was very patient, kind, and helpful. Even though I've only been here for 2 visits so far top notch help and service. I truly appreciate what everyone has done for me so far."- J.B. / Google / Jan 30, 2020
Laser Hair Removal Ideal Candidates
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
Laser Hair Removal Procedure Technique
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 with Laser Hair Removal
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.
