"Dr. Walters changed my life. I spent the better part of my adulthood too self conscious about my body to wear a tshirt or even go outside at times. I finally decided to make the decision to better myself and life. I could not have made a better choice. The professionalism and skills Dr. Walters and his staff possess are 2nd to none. I couldn't be happier. Thank you!!!"- M.F. / Healthgrades / Oct 18, 2018
"My overall experience with Dr. Walters was nothing short of perfect and professional. I was born with 3 nipples which is not entirely uncommon, however, mine had accessory breast tissue underneath which over time became an issue as the tissue would swell and become sore, especially while I was on my period. Because of his expertise in placement, the scar is virtually invisible. For the first time in my life, I love my breasts and could not be happier with the results!"- A. / Healthgrades / Oct 18, 2018
Reducing hair follicle growth with a laser is a safe process that is suitable for many patients. In your initial consultation, we will talk about your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you should get this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Want to stop using other hair removal methods (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in good, overall physical health
On the day of your laser hair removal appointment, you can lie in a private treatment room as areas of the face and body are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and moisturizers. During the procedure, a team member will stretch out the area to create a clear pathway between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The GentleMax Pro laser's energy will focus on and disable the follicle, which stops the hair from growing again. Usually, you will need to get 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to reach the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Walters Plastic Surgery targets only the hair follicle to preserve the skin and other tissue in the area being treated.
What to Expect
Although the treatment is mostly gentle, the treated areas of your skin may look like it has a light sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you are able to go back to all normal activities, but you need to avoid heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. At home, following your appointment, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to treat any mild discomfort.
