Nationally prominent dermatologist provides laser hair removal for men and women regardless of skin color
Shaving can leave razor bumps that can be embarrassing. Waxing and plucking can become tedious. Dr. Jeanine Downie is a nationally known dermatologist who understands the woes of trying to remove unwanted hair. After achieving optimal results with laser hair removal, she was able to eliminate the tedious task of shaving her legs and underarms. Dr. Downie and our caring team are committed to helping patients attain smoother, more beautiful skin regardless of their age, sex, or skin color.
We have performed laser hair removal on patients ranging from children to senior adults; however, we recommend treatment for men and women in their 30s or 40s whenever possible. We provide three different laser hair removal systems to accommodate all skin types and colors. Each is FDA-approved, safe, and effective.
The first step toward attaining the body of your dreams is scheduling a consultation appointment. We will examine the areas of the body you wish to have treated. Areas of the body can include the arms, underarms, chin, upper lip, and bikini line. Common treatment areas for men include the back and chest. We can treat most parts of the body except for the areas around the eyes.
For treatment, we use a laser to target many hairs simultaneously. A session can last a few minutes to an hour depending on the area to be treated. The laser permanently destroys the follicle so the unwanted hair will not return. It may take a few months to achieve optimal results. We recommend a session every four to six weeks for 5 to 15 sessions depending on the thickness of the hair and individual needs. After a session, it is critical to lather on a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 on the treated area. Of course, we recommend wearing sunscreen anytime you are outside, regardless of the weather. Dr. Downie has not shaved the hair on her legs for 10 years and it works but it does take a while.
