Laser Hair Removal

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal has become one of the most popular elective treatments in America. It’s an effective option for the long-term reduction of hair follicles on the body and face. This procedure frequently leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother and produces long-lasting results compared to other common methods. Plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters in New Orleans, LA, performs safe and fast laser hair removal services with the Forever Bare® BBL for women and men on frequently needed areas, including the arms, legs, back, face, chest, armpits, and bikini area. Contact our office today to schedule your first session and start ridding yourself of unwanted body hair.

Is Laser Hair Removal Right for Me?

Reducing hair follicle growth with a laser is a safe process that is suitable for many patients. In your initial consultation, we will talk about your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you should get this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:

  • Want to reduce hair on their face or body
  • Want to stop using other hair removal methods (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
  • Have darker hair with lighter skin
  • Are in good overall physical health

How Is Laser Hair Removal Performed?

On the day of your laser hair removal appointment, you can lie in a private treatment room as areas of the face and body are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and moisturizers. During the procedure, a team member will stretch out the area to create a clear pathway between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The Forever Bare BBL laser’s energy will focus on and disable the follicle, which stops the hair from growing again. Usually, you will need to get 3 to 5 treatments over 3 to 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to reach the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. Our state-of-the-art technology targets only the hair follicle to preserve the skin and other tissue in the treated area.


What Results Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?

Although the treatment is mostly gentle, the treated area of your skin may look like it has a light sunburn. After your session, you can go back to all normal activities, but you need to avoid heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. At home following your appointment, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to treat any mild discomfort.
