About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal can be a great alternative to waxing or shaving for our Lake Oswego, OR patients who desire a long-lasting solution for hair reduction. Our team at Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa offers advanced laser technology, using the Syneron-Candela GentleMax Pro 755 Alexandrite and 1064 Nd:Yag Laser to deliver precise, targeted pulses of energy that effectively destroy the hair follicle. Once the hair growth cycle has been successfully interrupted, patients will see significantly less hair in the treated areas for a long period of time. The most common areas that we treat are the bikini area, upper lip, chin, underarms, legs, and back. Our facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Petroff, invites both men and women who are interested to schedule a consultation at Petroff Center today to start their laser hair removal treatments. 

Best Candidates

The best candidates for laser hair removal are:

  • Patients with dark, thick hair
  • Patients who have shaved the area before treatment
  • Patients who are seeking a long-term hair removal alternative
  • Patients who have realistic expectations for their outcome

What to Expect

Before the laser treatment is administered, patients can ask for a numbing cream to help the process feel more comfortable. Our aesthetician will give the patient safety goggles to wear, and then proceed by turning on the laser that will be administered through a handheld device. The device will also have bursts of cold air continually accompanying the laser to help cool the area and reduce discomfort. The treatment is very quick, lasting only a few minutes with only mild burning or heating sensations. The patient can apply soothing lotion post treatment if desired and return to their normal activities right after.

Anticipated Results

Results may be visible after 1 - 2 sessions, but a patient typically needs 4 - 6 sessions to attain their full outcome. Patients can expect to see full hair reduction results within a few weeks following their final session. Overall, the treated area should be considerably smoother with a slower growth rate. Results can last years, though a shift in hormones such as with pregnancy can cause the hair to grow back.
