With laser hair removal from Hillcrest Plastic Surgery, patients can remove unwanted hair with long-term results. Patients in the Orlando, FL area are encouraged to speak with Dr. Spence or Dr. Ovalle about our laser hair removal services and what to expect.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Laser hair removal can be a painless experience, depending on the individual’s pain threshold and the type of laser used. Some people report feeling a slight sting-like sensation during the treatment, while others compare it to the feeling of rubber band snaps against the skin. The level of discomfort is generally considered to be minimal and well worth the results! It is found to be well-tolerated, though we do offer patients a topical numbing cream before their treatment to ensure they are comfortable from start to finish.

Are the results of laser hair removal permanent?

Results vary depending on the individual and can last longer between sessions as you continue and may eventually become permanent due to changes in the hair follicle.

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

Again, this depends on the individual. Most people will require a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart in order to achieve their desired results. The number of treatments needed also varies depending on the area being treated – larger areas like the back or legs may require more treatments than smaller areas like the bikini line. Our team will evaluate you to decide if this treatment is appropriate for your needs and can help you reach your realistic skin goals.
