No More Shaving, Tweezing and Waxing
For many men and women, unwanted hair has a very negative impact on self-esteem. Unwanted hair, particularly when on the face, can cause patients a high amount of unease. Women, become tired of repeatedly having to shave areas of their body to remove unwanted underarm hair, bikini line hair, and leg hair. Men can develop frustrating folliculitis.
For decades, treatments such as waxing, tweezing, or electrolysis, have been utilized to temporarily remove unwanted hair. While each of these procedures has its own benefits, none of the aforementioned procedures offers true permanence. Electrolysis, while an accepted procedure for decades, can be painful to some patients, particularly in areas like bikini lines and face.
Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery provides safe and effective laser hair removal helping thousands of women and men reach their hair removal goals. If you’re tired of the tedium and minimal effectiveness of hair removal techniques and are looking for a more permanent treatment, then laser hair removal may be a much better option. Laser hair removal has gained much popularity over the past few years with both men and women because of its effective results that are both safe and gentle producing hair-free, silky smooth skin. With no patient recovery time needed, treatments can easily fit in a busy lifestyle.
Dr. Greg Chernoff has been instrumental in laser research. His laser research is extensive and he continually develops and refines laser techniques utilized by physicians worldwide. Dr. Chernoff was featured on NBC Dateline highlighting his extensive research in Laser Hair Modification. What is known is that lasers utilized for hair modification can cause the same amount of damage to hair follicles that previously accepted treatments such as electrolysis can. The benefit of utilizing the laser, particularly in large areas of hair, is that it is faster and has been reported as less painful than electrolysis.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The light energy from the laser causes progressive damage to the hair follicles. This can cause miniaturization of the hair follicles or regeneration of tiny hair follicles near the surface of the skin. Both of these features yield modification of the growth process converting thick, dark hairs into fine peach fuzz hairs.
Typically, with each laser treatment, less hair grows back, and it grows back thinner and finer. The FDA has approved Laser Hair Modification for permanent hair reduction. This means that in any given area after a period of time longer than the normal hair growth cycle, we will see a minimum of a 35-50% reduction of terminal growing hairs.
The number of Hair Laser Modification treatments needed is variable from region to region on the body and from patient to patient. After each treatment, there is usually a slight amount of redness in the treatment area. Rarely, some welting can occur in the area. Most patients are able to return to work either that same day or the next.
Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risk and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.
