But wait a minute, you might be saying to yourself. Isn’t laser hair removal meant for people with light skin?
Not if you get laser hair removal at Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery in Lanham, Maryland!
Laser Hair Removal For All Skin Types
No matter what your skin color or shade, Beaux Arts Institute – serving the DC & Baltimore metros – delivers laser hair removal that can eliminate excess hair on the following areas:
- Back and shoulders
- Bikini area
- And more!
For darker skin tones, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nia Banks uses the 1064nm Nd:YAG laser to remove hair. This laser is the safest hair removal technology on the market, as it can target pigment in the hair shaft even against darker skin tones.
This innovative laser hair removal technology is combined with the 755nm Alexandrite laser, which is the gold standard for patients with lighter skin tones. These different laser wavelengths allow Dr. Banks to deliver the precise energy level you need for optimal hair removal results.
What To Expect From Your Procedure
Laser hair removal is a relatively straightforward process; sessions take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to administer, depending on the treatment area. Patients can expect minor discomfort during the procedure, as well as slight redness and swelling directly after the treatment.
Patients should see results after four to six treatments; however, this largely depends on the treatment area, hair type and color, and other factors. Dr. Banks can work with you to help you identify how many sessions you’ll actually need.
