Never Shave or Wax Again
Sick of shaving, waxing and plucking unwanted hairs? Have a problem with ingrown hairs or shaving bumps? Here at Jamachi Plastic Surgery and MediSpa, we offer Laser Hair Removal. With this popular service, Dr. Onyewu uses a heating laser to remove every last hair from undesirable areas on your body. The laser heats dark target matter in the area that causes hair growth without the need to heat the rest of your skin- so you barely feel it!
In order to remove all the unwanted hair, you may need to undergo multiple treatments. This depends on your hair type and skin color. Commonly patients with lighter skin and darker hair are easier to treat but other treatment options are offered for patients with lighter hair and darker skin. Most patients need a minimum of seven treatments spaced between a three to eight week break. The face requires more frequent visits at a three to four week span.
In order to prep for the procedure, we ask that you stay out of the sun and avoid plucking, waxing, and electrolysis. Something that surprises most patients is that it is actually okay to shave! Shaving preserves the hair shaft and follicle– the exact parts of the hair that the laser attacks.
As with all of his consultations, Dr. Onyewu will walk you through the procedure step by step and cater it towards your wants and needs.
If you think you might be a good candidate for laser hair removal, call our conveniently located Silver Spring, MD office, servicing the entire Washington, DC area, to schedule a comprehensive consultation. Dr. Onyewu will administer individual advice and discuss your concerns, priorities and motivations for pursuing plastic surgery as well as the details of your personal procedure. You can reach us at 301-585-0888 or go to our contact page here.
For your safety and the safety of others, only the client is allowed in the treatment room during the procedure.
