Laser hair removal is a long term solution to unwanted face or body hair. At Atlantic Shore Dermatology we use the effective and safe LightSheer diode laser to treat unwanted hair growth. This medical grade laser can be used almost anywhere on the face or body with the best results achieved with dark hair on light skin.
For best results laser treatments should be performed monthly for 3-5 months due to the natural hair growth cycle. Affordable hair removal packages are available.
Do I shave before my laser hair removal appointment? What about waxing?
You should shave the area 1-2 days prior to your appointment. Laser works by destroying the hair bulb deep below the skin and side effects are minimized by having the hairs clean shaven or short. Please also avoid plucking or waxing any areas you wish to be treated for at least 4 weeks.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The laser does deliver a pulse of energy that can sting so we recommend use of a topical numbing cream prior to your appointment to minimize discomfort. This cream can be prescribed to you prior to your appointment.
Does laser hair removal have any side effects?
Your safety is our first concern at Atlantic Shore Dermatology. Laser hair removal is a procedure that should only be performed at a reputable medical facility by a trained provider like the medical team at Atlantic Shore Dermatology. Common side effects include redness, swelling and discomfort. Protective eyewear is used to ensure safety.
