Laser Hair Removal in Baltimore, MD
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Theda C. Kontis offers laser hair removal to the residents of Baltimore, Maryland, Washington, DC, and the surrounding areas.
Many people suffer from unwanted hair on areas of their body and do not experience much success with traditional forms of hair removal such as waxing or shaving. Laser hair removal is a novel way of removing unwanted body hair safely and permanently.
How is laser hair removal performed?
Dr. Kontis uses the Xeo Cutera® system for removing unwanted hair. During this process, a hand-held laser is passed over the targeted area to damage hair follicles with intense heat that inhibits future hair growth. Patients may wish to use topical anesthesia, as the procedure can be mildly uncomfortable. For total success, multiple monthly treatments may be required.
The length of the procedure will depend on the number of areas to be treated. A smaller area can be treated in minutes, while a larger area can take several hours. Additionally, dark hair responds best to this type of treatment than fair hair. Once the series of treatments is complete, however, patients are free from the maintenance that comes with unwanted hair.
How much does laser hair removal cost?
The cost of laser hair removal depends on the extent of the areas to be treated, hair type and the number of treatments. After your initial consultation with Dr. Kontis, you will have the opportunity to discuss payment options with the patient coordinator, who can discuss financing options with you.
Who performs the laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is generally performed by registered nurses under supervision of Dr. Kontis. Contact Dr. Kontis’ to schedule a consultation for your laser hair removal treatment.
