Patients ask, “Is there a dermatologist near me who provides affordable laser hair removal?”
There are multiple reasons patients may wish to remove unwanted hair from their bodies. They can range from preparing for a special event such as a wedding to wanting to look their best at the beach. Whatever the reason, tweezing, shaving, or waxing can become tedious. Therefore, residents in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, and other areas begin to search for the answer to one question: Is there a dermatologist near me who provides affordable laser hair removal? To their delight, they find a dermatologist who provides safe, effective, and affordable treatment in the neighboring town of Montclair.
Dr. Jeanine Downie is not only a nationally sought after dermatologist, but she knows first-hand the results of the laser hair removal treatment she provides at her practice, Image Dermatology. She used this technology to remove hair from her legs and underarms, eliminating the need to shave those areas for years. She, as well as her patients, can attest to amazing results. She recommends laser hair removal every four to six weeks. Unwanted hair can typically disappear permanently after a series of treatments.
How laser hair removal works
We use laser removal to treat hair on areas of the body including arms, underarms, legs, face, and bikini line. With utilization of laser technology, we can target dark, coarse hairs without damaging the skin. The laser can also target many hairs simultaneously, usually reaching an area the size of a quarter every second. Facial areas such as the upper lip may take a few minutes, whereas the legs can take up to an hour.
Laser hair removal is still safe and effective. Dr. Downie performs this procedure on pre-teens and in some cases children as well.
Cost of treatment
Various factors will determine the cost of treatment. The size of the area undergoing treatment and length of the sessions are factors. Generally, patients find the procedure well worth the time and money. They have also noticed long-term savings after eliminating the need to shave, wax, tweeze, or buy various hair removal products.
