Safe, Effective Laser Hair Removal in Voorhees, NJ
South Jersey residents looking for a long-term hair removal solution may benefit from laser hair removal treatment offered by Dr. William Franckle at Premier Plastic Surgery Arts.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
We offer the proven Sciton ClearScan laser hair removal service, which utilizes laser beams that target hair follicles to stop the growth of unwanted hair. ClearScan is one of the only treatments available that targets multiple hair follicles at once, making it a great option for patients who want to remove larger patches of hair from the body. We use ClearScan’s computer-guided scanning system to ensure hair is evenly removed from the skin in a safe, gentle, and effective manner. The price of the procedure varies, but we offer financing to help patients pay for treatment.
Who Is a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is effective for patients with any skin color. Even tanned skin can be treated, but the procedure may be adjusted based on the patient’s tanning habits and skin condition. Please inform Dr. Franckle if you have spent time in a tanning salon or in the sun during the last three weeks, or if you are currently using tanning products, to ensure you receive the safest, most effective treatment.
About the Procedure
When you come in for a laser hair removal consultation, you and Dr. Franckle will discuss your medical history, treatment goals, and options to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your needs. The number of treatments needed will depend on the desired results and the area of the body being treated, but many of our patients benefit from six treatments in four-to-six-week intervals. This ensures that as many hair follicles as possible are removed during each growth cycle.
At the beginning of the procedure, the ClearScan computer system will scan your skin to optimize the laser hair removal pattern. Although the process is designed with patient comfort in mind, patients with sensitive skin may benefit from the application of a topical anesthetic. Dr. Franckle can help you determine if this is the best option for your skin. ClearScan’s continuous cooling feature ensures patient comfort and safety during the treatment.
Risks and Recovery
Temporary discomfort, including redness and swelling of the skin and skin irritation, are possible immediately after treatment, but these side effects generally disappear within a few hours. The biggest risk, although rare, is the temporary change in skin pigmentation.
Dr. Franckle will provide you with specific recovery instructions based on the treatment area. The treated area should be kept clean, and sunscreen should be applied if you will be spending time outdoors. Fortunately, laser hair removal results in minimal downtime, and patients are generally able to resume normal activities immediately following treatment.
