I was out of the house the next day and only took ibuprofen. Definitely recommend."- R.T. / Google / May 30, 2019
"Warning: long post I call my cancer diagnosis “the gift that keeps on giving”. When I was referred to Dr. Walters, I had gone through 8 surgeries and was experiencing a 4-way contraction on the right side as a result of radiation after reconstruction. This caused me to be in pain 24 hours a day. Dr. Walters gave me hope that I could live without that pain and he did a fat transfer from my stomach to make a new breast. The pain was gone. This past November I had the second phase of the surgery which was to give me symmetry, to reconstruct the nipples which were misshapen, and to transfer fat to give fullness where needed. The surgery was a success for me. I can look at myself in the mirror and I am okay with what I see now. I live two and a half hours from Dr. Walters’ offices. Dr. Walters and his staff were kind, responsive, and accommodating to my needs to say the least. My questions which were numerous were answered in a timely manner. During difficult times, Dr. Walters was able to see me quickly and he was willing to discuss options by phone. I am a happy patient and at every visit I was asked if I was happy with the results. I can say that I am very pleased and happy with my results and with the care I was given by Dr. Walters and all of his staff!"- D.B. / Google / May 29, 2019
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.
