Laser Hair Removal
Smooth, Hairless Skin. Permanently.
Free yourself from unwanted facial hair and experience the pleasure of never having to shave, tweeze or wax again. Laser hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses pulsed laser energy to remove unwanted hair from a targeted area while leaving surrounding skin unharmed. Laser hair removal is a convenient, long-term solution to reduce or eliminate hair growth anywhere on the face or underarms.
Cosmetic Surgery of New York uses an effective and gentle hair removal system that removes unwanted hair growth from the face, including: Upper lip, cheeks, chin, neck and under the arms.
With our system, hair follicles are precisely targeted and destroyed using a combination of bi-polar radio frequency and light energies.
Permanent hair reduction is successful for both men and women, and can be used on lighter colored hair and all skin tones.
Results are immediate, with hair growth reduced after just one treatment. The number of treatments required is determined individually.
For many patients, laser hair removal is painless, although some experience minor discomfort, usually described as something like a rubber band's snapping against the skin.
Hair growth takes place cyclically. The most effective laser hair removal takes place during the growth stage, because the hair follicles in this stage are susceptible to laser energy. But, because all hair is not in the same stage of growth at any given time, several laser treatments, usually between three and five, spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart are recommended.

Recovery From Laser Hair Removal
Some redness, soreness or swelling may occur immediately after laser hair removal, but they almost always disappear within a few days. Cold compresses or ice packs, moisturizers, and anti-inflammatory creams may minimize discomfort. Sun exposure should be avoided as much as possible for some period of time.
Complications Of Laser Hair Removal
The most common complication of laser hair removal is the regrowth of the unwanted hair. Frequently, however, the hair that regrows is finer and lighter than the hair that was removed. Usually, regrowth can be addressed with a few additional treatment sessions.
