With today’s laser technology, unwanted hair can be safely and permanently removed from most areas of the body including the face, axilla (armpits) and bikini areas. In just a few short sessions both men and women can have the confidence to “go bare”, without the embarrassment of unwanted hair. Having offered the procedure since the late 1990’s, Dr. Joseph O’Connell is among the most experienced practitioners for laser hair removal.
Dr. Joseph O’Connell, Total Aesthetics in Westport, CT
At Total Aesthetics, we have 20 years of experience with diode lasers for hair removal. That’s why we use LightSheer® DESIRE technology from Lumenis as well as the new Diolaze XL from InMode. Both machines offer integrated cooling to provide convenient and fast removal of unwanted hair with minimal discomfort. Diolaze utilizes a unique 3PC Cooling that provides the ultimate in patient comfort.
Because the laser only treats hairs that are in their active growth phase, multiple treatment sessions are required for full correction. The number of sessions will vary with each patient and body area.
Laser hair removal is intended to provide long lasting or permanent reduction in hair growth.
For women, the lip, chin, bikini and underarm are the most common areas treated. Some women treat their legs, arms, abdomen and breasts. For men, the back, shoulder, upper arms and chest are the most popular areas for laser hair removal. It is possible to treat most areas of the body.
Unfortunately, we are unable to treat blonde, white or grey hair at this time and because of this, laser hair removal is best described as laser hair “reduction.”
Patients planning laser hair removal should not wax, pluck or dye any hair they wish treated for about one month prior to laser treatment – you can shave as needed up to 72 hours prior to your laser treatment. Please do not sun tan or apply self-tanning products to any areas planned for treatment.
In our practice, rather than charging per area, the cost is determined solely by treatment time and there is no charge for pre-treatment consultation. We find that our patients prefer this and appreciate the associated cost savings because sometimes, particularly after multiple treatments have been completed, areas only need to be treated in part.
The first step towards a new, beautiful you is to schedule a personal consultation.
Along with providing the highest level of care, no effort is spared to create an environment where each patient is nurtured and cared for as an individual. Use our form to contact Dr. O’Connell with questions about any of our aesthetic or plastic surgery procedures.
