Laser Hair Removal in Phoenix, AZ
Unwanted hair is one of the most time-intensive cosmetic concerns for men and women. Shaving and waxing remove the hair, but both of these options can be painful and, within a few days, you have to repeat the process. Wouldn’t you like a way to permanently reduce unwanted hair? Now you can with laser hair removal. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Larry C. Leverett, offers laser hair removal for men and women in Phoenix, Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert and surrounding communities of Arizona.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
For men and women who always shave and wax their unwanted hair, laser hair removal is an absolute blessing. The treatment is quick and comfortable, and you can even permanently eliminate the hair with repeat treatments. Lasers destroy hair by targeting and damaging the follicle so that new hair does not grow.

Good Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

What Can I Expect from My Laser Hair Removal?
For best results, you should follow some guidelines before your laser hair removal.
- Do not tweeze or wax the treatment area for at least four weeks.
- Avoid using tanning beds, spray tans and self-tanning creams and lotions for at least two weeks before your laser hair treatment.
- For at least two weeks before the treatment, refrain from being in the sun for extended periods of time.
- Avoid using retinol products for at least one week.
You should not use Accutane for one year before receiving laser hair removal treatments.
Our Palomar Laser uses a combination of laser energy and heat to damage and destroy hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin. The system is designed with a cool tip that helps you stay comfortable during the treatment. The laser energy is administered in short bursts that most patients describe as similar to snapping the skin with a rubber band.
After Laser Hair Removal
No downtime is required, but your skin may have a slightly red appearance depending on the treatment area. You will be given instructions on how to take care of your skin after laser hair removal. After each treatment, the hair grows back thinner and lighter. For best results, we recommend six to 12 treatments that are scheduled four to eight weeks apart.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The cost of your laser hair removal treatment is based on the treatment area and type of hair. We provide a cost after your consultation.
