Are You a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

If you’ve grown weary of shaving, waxing, bleaching, tweezing, and plucking unwanted hair, or you get a red rash or bumps every time you shave, you are not alone. Many men and women have discovered the numerous benefits of laser hair removal.

At Professional Aesthetics and Wellness, in Vorhees, New Jersey, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Richard J. Dittrich, DO, FACOG, and our team help you get rid of unwanted hair with our state of the art Synchro REPLAY system. Read on to learn more about how laser hair removal works, its many benefits, and if you are a candidate for the procedure.

Removing hair with a laser

To remove hair from areas of your body where you don’t want it to grow, one of our aesthetics team members uses a unique handheld device to beam light energy into your hair follicles to target and break down the pigment.

You can also use laser hair removal if your hair is thinning or balding.

Ideal candidates

While laser hair removal works great for both men and women, depending on your hair and skin type, some people are better candidates than others. People with dark, coarse hair and light skin get the very best results. Light and gray hair don’t respond as well and may require more treatments, while people with darker skin aren’t ideal candidates. Our team uses advanced technology that works for most skin and hair types, but we meet with you first to determine if laser hair removal will work well for you. If you're a good candidate, we’ll outline what to expect at each treatment and how many sessions you’ll need to get soft, smooth, hairless skin. We’ll also recommend that you refrain from tweezing, plucking, and waxing for a few weeks before your treatments to ensure we can target the roots of your hair.
