Laser Hair Removal in Lafayette, LA

Dr. Louis G. Mes, board-certified plastic surgeon, is the area's recognized expert in laser hair removal treatments whom residents in Lafayette, Lake Charles, and the surrounding communities trust for their aesthetic surgery needs.

Some people are naturally born with more hair than others while other individuals find that hair starts to grow in unwanted places as they get older. Since this excessive hair can be embarrassing, people spend hours of their time shaving, plucking, or waxing to remove it, only to have to repeat the process just a few days or weeks later. Additionally, many temporary hair removal treatments, such as plucking and waxing are also painful. Fortunately, advances in laser hair removal have made it possible for most people to have a permanent solution to unwanted hair.

Laser hair removal uses intense beams of concentrated light that enter the hair follicles and destroy the hair. The procedure is safe and painless and can be used to remove hair in most areas of your body. In fact, laser hair removal is the second most popular aesthetic procedure done in the United States.

What Happens During Laser Hair Removal?

The first step in laser hair removal is to cut the hair very close to your skin. Then you will be provided with eye protection to wear during the treatment. The next step involves directing the concentrated pulses of light into the treatment area to remove the hair after which ice and soothing gel are applied to the skin. Depending on the size of the area where you want hair removed, this process may be repeated several times.

After the procedure, you might notice that you skin appears slightly red. This will disappear within a couple of days. If you want to have hair removed from a large area, you many need to return for a second session in about two to four weeks. The results of laser hair removal are evident immediately after treatment.
