Dr. Cambeiro is a board-certified plastic surgeon performing laser hair removal in Las Vegas, Nevada. If you live outside of the Las Vegas area, please contact us to learn more about our fly-in program.
Throughout the United States, and particularly here in Las Vegas, laser hair removal is an extremely popular treatment for the permanent reduction of unwanted hair. During this procedure, laser energy is used to target and destroy hair follicles, significantly limiting hair growth in the treated area. Since the laser is only absorbed by the hair follicle, there is no damage to surrounding skin.
Although it is considered a cosmetic procedure, laser hair removal benefits go beyond aesthetics. Being rid of unwanted hair can simplify your life, saving you the time, money, and inconvenience spent on waxing, shaving, tweezing, or depilatory creams.
Laser hair removal is a good choice for anyone who wants to permanently reduce unwanted hair growth on their face, chest, back, arms, legs, or bikini area. In the past, the best candidates were those with dark hair and light skin, but the innovative Lumenis® system allows for treatment of all skin and hair types.
At your initial consultation, Dr. Cambeiro will perform a focused physical examination and review your medical history including medications, prior cosmetic procedures and any existing skin concerns. He will evaluate the area(s) of unwanted hair, and determine the best treatment plan for achieving optimal results.
The laser is only effective on those hairs that are in the active growth phase during your treatment. For best results, most patients require several treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. After this initial series of treatments, hair growth in the treated area should be significantly diminished. Most patients find that any hair that does regrow in the treated area is very light and fine and does not require removal. Some patients will benefit from periodic maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months.
