If your unwanted hair has you feeling down or it seems impossible to keep it under control, you may benefit from laser hair removal. This cosmetic dermatological procedure can help you minimize the occurrence of unwanted hair and feel great about the way you look. Find out more about laser hair removal with Dr. Tamara Moss at Moss Dermatology in Forest Hills, NY.

What is laser hair removal?
This cosmetic dermatology procedure uses laser technology pulsed over the surface of the skin to remove the hair and damage the hair follicle. This process removes the hair immediately and the damage taken by the follicle keeps hair from growing back in the future. Most patients need several sessions with their dermatologist to completely eliminate their hair’s growth.

Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Your doctor can help you determine if you are suitable for this procedure at a consultation.

What can I expect during laser hair removal?
The length of your laser hair removal session depends on the size of the area in question. Larger areas may require a longer appointment while a small area, such as the upper lip or armpits, may require only a few minutes. Most patients report that the laser itself feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin and, though not necessarily painful, is somewhat uncomfortable during the session. Your doctor can help you manage the discomfort with cooling or numbing gels applied prior to your appointment.
