Make the Switch to Spring Smoother Than Ever
As you swap out your sweaters and scarves for shorts and t-shirts, are you dreading all the hair removal needed for that first spring outing? Or maybe you just have some pesky pricklers that disrupt your desired aesthetic? Whatever unwanted body hair you’re dealing with, we can help — and you can shelve your razor, permanently!
At Derick Dermatology, we provide laser hair removal treatments to permanently remove unwanted body hair, when performed at a specific stage of hair growth. While some hair grows back between treatment sessions, it will be lighter and less coarse than previous growth. Even then, up to 25% of the treated hair will respond after just one appointment.
But those aren’t the only benefits of using a laser for hair removal:
- Little to no downtime
- Safe for use in the most sensitive areas, including the face and bikini area
- Patients experience minimal discomfort in the treated area
- Men and women of any age can be safely treated
Despite such awesome benefits, some people still have concerns about laser hair removal. However, we can assure you there is nothing to worry about if your treatment is administered by a qualified dermatologist. At Derick Dermatology, we’re certified experts in cosmetic, surgical and medical dermatology, and we treat patients of all ages with every skin type and tone.
Did you know that our GentleMax Laser is safe for dark and light skin types? We have the option of lasers in two wavelengths — 755-nanometer wavelength for our lighter-skinned patients, and 1,064-nanometer wavelength for those with darker skin.
While there is no set timeline or guaranteed number of treatments before targeted areas are permanently hairless, the GentleMax laser generally requires a session once a month for five to seven months to fully achieve the desired results. Some patients see results sooner than others, ultimately requiring fewer treatments
