For patients who feel self-conscious about unwanted hair, laser hair removal can provide an effective, long-lasting alternative to waxing and shaving. This treatment uses advanced technology to specifically target the hair follicle without damaging surrounding skin, inhibiting hair growth at the source. Combining state-of-the-art laser technology with extensive training, Dr. Clarence Wiley, Sr. can treat both large and small sections of the face and body, providing clients in Oklahoma City, OK, with customized care and superior results.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
During treatment, we can apply concentrated pulses of light directly to the treatment area, heating the hair follicle to hinder hair growth. Throughout treatment, we can adjust the wavelength of light to account for different skin tones so we regularly treat skin tones from "ebony to ivory." Our medical assistants at Beauty thru Health Dermatology, P.C. are closely monitored by Dr. Wiley to ensure you receive the highest level of care on your journey to smoother, silkier skin.
Is Laser Hair Removal Right for You?
If you are seeking a more convenient, long-lasting solution to hair removal, this type of laser therapy may be the solution. While laser hair removal does not permanently eliminate hair, it has been proven to significantly reduce hair growth. For optimal results, patients typically undergo multiple treatment sessions and intermittent maintenance treatments.
Laser hair removal eliminates unwanted hair with unrivaled precision and speed. The versatility of laser hair removal allows us to target a variety of areas ranging in size. The most popular areas of treatment include:
- Bikini line
- Upper lip
While laser hair removal has traditionally been most effective on dark hair and lighter skin tones, Dr. Wiley has successfully treated patients with all skin colors. With his expertise, Dr. Wiley can design a customized treatment plan suited to your needs.
The Treatment Process
To prepare for treatment, you do not have to avoid tanning or using self-tanners since our primary hair removal laser can be used on pigmented skin. You should also refrain from waxing for the few weeks prior to your laser hair removal treatment. Lastly, it is important to shave within 24 hours before the procedure.
To ensure your comfort, we highly recommend applying a topical local anesthetic to the treatment area. If you are having an extensive procedure, we also may prescribe pain medication as needed. Before administering treatment, we will supply you with protective glasses to ensure your safety. We can then apply the laser to the target area of your body or face. Typically, patients describe the laser sensation as a small pinch or snap of a rubber band. Laser therapy can address small sections of the body in less than one minute and larger areas in approximately one hour.
Dr. Wiley has successfully treated patients with all skin colors. With his expertise, Dr. Wiley can design a customized treatment plan suited to your needs.
Typically, laser hair removal requires between six to twelve treatments, performed four to six weeks apart. Dr. Wiley and his team of medical assistants can evaluate the progress of treatment during each session to determine your specific treatment timeline.
