Hair Reduction (Trichology)

Laser hair reduction is an efficient, cost-effective way to reduce hair growth permanently. Most patients find that their hair growth is reduced by 80-90% after a few treatments. At Patients Medical we specialize in all forms of hair reduction. We use the latest technology to give you precision hair reduction on all areas of the body, including

  • Face
  • Hairline
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Bikini area
  • Legs
  • Feet

The FDA has approved the type of laser Patients Medical uses, which have proven effective in peer-reviewed medical journals.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair reduction targets the root of each hair follicle and works on a variety of colors and textures of hair all over the body. A concentrated beam of light is aimed at the hair. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, which damages the follicle enough to discourage future growth. The affect may last for years, depending on the texture and color of your hair.

What does treatment feel like?

Your treatments are always done by our dermatologist, and never by an assistant or nurse. This means that you are getting expert care with over 25 years of experience in hair reduction and removal. While extreme care is taken to make you as comfortable as possible, you may notice the treatment feels like the snap of a rubber band or a gentle pinch. Most people find the treatment tolerable, and can go back to their daily activities immediately after treatment.

To prepare for your hair reduction procedure:

  1. The doctor may direct you to have at least one days' worth of hair growth, depending on the area being treated, and avoid waxing, plucking, threading or electrolysis for 4-6 weeks before treatment.
  2. Please thoroughly cleanse the area you wish for the doctor to treat to make sure it is free of make-up, medication, creams or lotions.
  3. The doctor will speak with you about your medical history, skin type, any medications you are currently taking or other medical conditions that may affect your skin's reaction to the treatment. Please answer the doctor's questions as accurately as possible, to ensure the best possible outcome.
  4. Please note: Many areas may need multiple treatments before hair growth is completely eliminated.
