Laser Hair Removal

Written by Dr. Russo

If you don’t like shaving, waxing, or tweezing your hairs on a regular basis, you may want to consider laser hair removal. This procedure is one of the most popular in the United States today. It involves beaming highly concentrated light into the hair follicles. The pigment absorbs the light and the process destroys the hair.

If you want to undergo laser hair removal in Champaign-Urbana, Dr. Russo specializes in offering aesthetic care of the skin and the face. While his focus is on facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, he has vast experience offering laser hair removal to many of his patients.

Dr. Russo opened Rejuvenis in 2002 with the goal of making both women and men feel better in their own skin. His clinic is home to a surgical office and medical spa as well as an accredited surgical suite dedicated to medicine and cosmetic surgery. He is a member of the teaching faculty for multiple technology companies and medical products.

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Getting laser hair removal in Champaign-Urbana will allow you to get rid of unwanted hair on the face, legs, arms, back, bikini line, and virtually any other part of the body. One of the biggest benefits of this procedure is the precision it offers. The lasers can target dark coarse hair while leaving the surrounding areas intact.

We have multiple devices and wavelengths as an effective treatment to significantly reduce unwanted hair for people of all skin tones, including African Americans and others with darker skin or even those with suntans. Laser hair removal is done on most areas including facial hair such as the upper lip and chin, as well as the body including the legs, arms, bikini line, back, chest, abdomen and more. It is proven to be one of the best hair removal methods– quick and reliable with minimal discomfort.

Laser hair removal in our Champaign-Urbana office is extremely fast. In just a fraction of a second, the lasers can remove several hairs at the same time. During this time, the laser can treat an area the size of a quarter. Moreover, many patients experience permanent hair reduction after just three sessions and most patients require at least six sessions.

Results and Recovery

The results of laser hair removal in Champaign-Urbana depend largely on your skin and hair type. Traditionally, you will need a minimum of three sessions before you start seeing results. After seven sessions, your treatment should be complete. You may need to return occasionally for a maintenance touch up. During the first and second day after your treatment, your skin will be red and slightly tender. You can use cold compresses and moisturizer to treat any discomfort, although this should subside within 48 hours.

Who Can Get Laser Hair Removal?

If you are planning on getting laser hair removal in Champaign-Urbana, it is important that you book a consultation with one of our laser technicians in order to establish whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure. In truth, this type of hair removal works best on patients with dark hair and fair skin. This is due to the fact that the laser is attracted to pigment and can identify it better because of the contrast between the skin and hair color. While people with fair hair or darker skin can receive laser hair removal, it may not be as effective.
