Do you have unwanted hair on your face or body? Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery can help you feel more confident by removing hair from your arms, legs, underarms, upper lip, face, and other treatment areas to reveal silky, smooth skin. We use multiple methods for laser hair removal, including laser technologies and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). The right treatment for you will be determined by your skin type, the amount of hair you want to remove, and the location, color, and density of your hair.
Our certified aesthetic laser operator, Jill Robbins, will perform your laser hair removal procedure in our state-of-the-art facility, using the latest laser and light technology. She will begin by placing protective eyewear over your eyes to shield them from the laser’s light energy. Jill may also apply a gel to the treatment area to prep the skin. Next, the laser’s contact cooling plate will be gently placed and held on your skin for several seconds to cool the skin and minimize any discomfort. Laser hair removal works by sending light, which turns into heat, to your treatment area to target hair follicles and inhibit and delay hair regrowth. Many patients ask us, “Does laser hair removal hurt?” Thankfully, laser technology has come a long way since it emerged. We typically tell our patients that the treatment is entirely tolerable and they may feel small pinching sensations, such as a rubber band being snapped against the skin. After a series of laser hair removal treatments, you will begin to notice that your hair grows back thinner, finer and less dense, much more slowly, and sometimes not at all.

Get ready to show off your smooth, beautiful skin without worrying about razor burn, bumps, ingrown hairs, and the hassle of shaving for years to come! Laser hair removal results last for years for most patients. Although it is rare, laser hair removal can be permanent in some cases. We see the most promising results in those with darker hair, because the hair must have pigmentation for the procedure to work effectively. Our office uses different types of lasers, such as the RevLite Laser for darker skin tones, to ensure we provide the best results for every skin type.
