Laser Hair Removal

Are you tired of shaving, waxing and tweezing? You may want to consider laser hair removal treatment. Laser hair removal is an effective way to permanently reduce hair growth. Just like any cosmetic procedure, however, patients need to understand what to expect and put careful thought into their hair removal decision. At Olansky Dermatology Associates, we encourage patients to consider the following if they want laser hair removal:

Safety First

It is of highest importance that patients choose laser technology that is safe and FDA approved. You need to also choose a qualified, experienced provider. Although it may be cheaper or more convenient to stop in a clinic or med-spa for your hair removal, your safety (and results) may be compromised in doing so. Selecting a board certified dermatologist is your best assurance that you are putting safety first. Be sure that your provider is also willing to do a patch test first. This should be standard procedure to ensure your skin is suitable for the type of laser.

Ask Questions

There are many different types of laser hair removal systems available, and they are not all created equal. Don’t be afraid to ask questions to ensure you are electing one that works for your specific skin type. Different machines have different lasers with varying wavelengths and capabilities. You may find that some places use intense pulse light (IPL) instead of lasers, which tends to be far less effective at getting rid of unwanted hair.

How It Works

Laser hair removal works by disrupting the function of the hair follicle in their active growing phase. The hair follicle can still exists post-treatment but will not be able to grow hair. Hairs that are not in the growth phase at the time of treatment will not be affected by the laser, which is why further treatments may be necessary to achieve ideal results.

At Olansky Dermatology Associates, we use the Cynosure Elite system, the most comprehensive laser hair removal system available today. It is FDA approved and uniquely designed for all skin types. The Cynosure laser’s intense heat damages hair follicles and stops future growth. This laser system also implements a cooling system that helps soften the sensation of the heat, which makes the treatments feel similar to a rubber band snap. After only a few sessions, dramatic results can be achieved. In addition, Cynosure laser can smooth and rejuvenate skin, making it an effective treatment for wrinkles, acnes scars and stretch marks.

Whether you are a woman who wants to be done with shaving your legs or bikini area or a man who would like a hair-free back, laser hair removal can be a life-changing solution that brings valued confidence and lessens your daily skin maintenance. At Olansky Dermatology, we welcome your questions surrounding laser treatments for the skin, and we would love to tell you more about the benefits of Cynosure Hair Removal.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
